Barefoot Sound’s (MEME) Multi-Emphasis Monitor Emulation Demo

collapse expand iconDescription

Barefoot Sound's Footprint01 studio monitor squeezes the power and precision of the brand's flagship models into a conveniently sized cabinet. This active 3-way speaker is equipped with dual 8" subwoofers, a 4" midrange driver and a 1" tweeter to deliver an expansive 36Hz–45kHz frequency range. A bi-amplified 500W design provides ample bass power while a 150W amp drives the mid and high frequencies. The Footprint01 is designed for home studios and project studios where space is at a premium but uncompromising sound quality is non-negotiable.

Dual 8-Inch Subwoofers Shake the Room

The Footprint01's dual opposing 8" subwoofers utilize Barefoot Sound's patented Dual-Force technology to produce clean, chest-thumping bass down to 36Hz. With 500 watts of power, these subwoofers deliver a level of low-end precision and extension typically reserved for much larger studio monitors. You'll not only hear the bass, you'll feel it.

Four-Driver 3-Way Design Covers the Full Spectrum

In addition to its seismic subwoofer section, the Footprint01 incorporates a 4" aluminum midrange driver and a 1" dual ring radiating tweeter. The midrange driver's rigid, lightweight aluminum cone provides exceptional transient response for clear, detailed mids. The dual ring tweeter design offers a wider dispersion pattern and smoother high-frequency response. Together with the subwoofers, these drivers cover an expansive 36Hz–45kHz frequency range.

MEME Technology Provides Multiple Reference Points

Barefoot Sound's MEME technology enables the Footprint01 to emulate the sound of classic studio monitors like Yamaha NS10s, Auratone Sound Cubes and consumer hi-fi systems. At the push of a button, you can reference your mixes through different sonic lenses without changing monitors. Ensure your tracks will translate optimally to any playback system with this innovative feature.

Precision Engineering in a Compact Cabinet

Despite its space-efficient proportions, the Footprint01 is crafted with the same obsessive attention to detail as Barefoot Sound's larger monitors. Its non-parallel walls minimize unwanted resonances while strategically placed ports optimize low-frequency extension and response. For home studios and project studios where every sound matters, the Footprint01 delivers a genuine Barefoot Sound experience in a monitor sized for tight spaces.
