A large selection of Barefoot Sound monitors are featured at La Fabrique studios in the South of France, home to the internationally renowned “Mix With the Masters” week-long seminar series. Hosted by such legends as Al Schmitt and Eddie Kramer, the programs offer an exchange of in-depth first-hand studio experience and knowledge that is unparalleled and unavailable elsewhere.
Mixing isn’t just about pushing buttons, it is about what is going on inside of you. For this reason I invited all participants to introduce themselves on the first day of the seminar and asked them, ‘Why are you here? What are you thinking? Are you ready to mix a hit?’” explained seminar leader Michael H. Brauer
“It’s certainly very gratifying for us at Barefoot that the program utilizes our monitors in these extremely immersive seminars,” commented CEO Tedi Sarafian. “When these gifted tutors and students are learning the finer nuances of the art of mixing, they are hearing the transparency and clarity we have always strived for in our speakers.”
Among the GRAMMY® Award-winning, multi-Platinum producer/engineers leading the seminars are Andy Wallace, Chris Lord-Alge, Manny Marroquin, David Kahne, Jack Joseph Puig, Andrew Scheps, Jimmy Douglass, Joe Barresi, Tchad Blake, and Tony Maserati.
“We want our attendees to experience the process of recording and mixing in the very best listening environment and Barefoot is a big factor in that experience,” explained the founder of the program. The state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the Barefoot Sound Monster Stack of MM12 monitors and a full 5.1 Surround Sound array is comprised of MM27s.

Are you ready to mix a hit?’” explained seminar leader Michael H. Brauer.
Brauer describes his experience with Barefoot Sound, “Over a period of a few months, I slowly weaned myself from my old midfields to the Barefoots. I’ve really fallen in love with the bottom end they pump out and my mixes are coming out great. My clients prefer I playback on the Barefoots when making comments.”
