Barefoot Sound, the Portland audio powerhouse, is introducing the Footprint01 speaker at Winter NAMM. The new powered nearfield monitor delivers the company’s renowned audio performance and build quality to engineers, producers, composers and musicians working in smaller spaces and with smaller budgets.
Barefoot’s new line launches with the Footprint01™, an active 3-way speaker that shares the same Thomas Barefoot signature Dual-Force technology as the company’s popular MicroMain and MasterStack monitor lines: opposing sub woofers, dual ring radiator tweeter and Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation™ technology.
The Footprint01 2-way DSP crossover feeds dual amp modules that drive the subwoofers with 500W of power and deliver 150W to the mid- and high-frequency drivers. The midrange woofer is positioned above the tweeter in a distinctive speaker geometry that creates acoustic focus in the center of the cabinet.
As with every Barefoot monitor, Footprint01 allows the user to preview any mix as it would sound through alternate reference speakers by emulating the frequency, phase, transient response, dynamic compression and distortion characteristics of a variety of classic studio monitors.
