Top Nashville producer/engineer Matt McClure has installed Barefoot Sound’s flagship MiniMain12 monitors in his studio, The Roost. "The listening position is spot on and I just did a little bit of tweaking and man, the first listen would blow your mind," McClure explains. "They're ridiculous. I have worked in all of the big installs all over this town and my control room sounds as world class as any of them."
McClure's experience with Barefoot Sound goes back eight years when he demoed a pair of the smaller MM27s through Vintage King Audio. "They brought them over and I stuck them up on the console and finished the mix and then gave it to the client and everybody passed it around. It translated perfectly. I got the biggest compliments I had gotten to date on any mix I'd done.
"I called Vintage King back and I told company co-founder Mike Nehra, 'Man, I know these were demos, but I'm keeping them. I'll pay you full price for them. I'm serious; you can't have your demos back. I will not go another day without them.' That's how serious I was. And then later I got a second pair of 27s with cases so I could easily set up in tracking rooms and have the identical sound I had at my studio. And recently, I traded up from the 27s to the new MM12s in the studio."
