Renowned music producer and recording/mix engineer Chris Lord-Alge has chosen Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 monitors for critical listening at his Mix LA! recording studios. "I need monitors that are non-complimentary," he explains. "I need monitors that don't make it sound better, that make it sound accurate, with no hype."

Lord-Alge first gained attention while working at Unique Recording Studios, New York City, in the 1980s, where mixed an astonishing series of hits, including Prince's "Batman" soundtrack, Joe Cocker's "Unchain My Heart" album, Tina Turner's "Foreign Affair," and 12" remixes of Madonna's "La Isla Bonita," the Rolling Stones' "Too Much Blood," Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark," David Bowie's "Time Will Crawl," and Pete Townsend "Hiding Out."

"My introduction to Barefoot monitors started back when I was mixing Green Days' '21st Century"' album," he continues. "It was produced by Butch Vig, a Barefoot fan. He brought the monitors here and we set them up in my live room, pretty much exactly where I have my Barefoots now. That became the band's critical monitoring space. They had recorded the tracks in Oakland with their big MM12 Barefoot monitors and I got used to hearing the mixes here on my Barefoots."

Lord-Alge has focused on mixing since the late 1990s, resulting in an extensive production discography. Artists that have worked with him include the Goo Goo Dolls, Bon Jovi, Daughtry, Muse, Shinedown, Dave Matthews Band, Sugarland, and Pink.

"When I did my first seminar at Mixing with the Masters over in France," he recalls. "They had MicroMain 27 monitors on the console and they became the go-to big speaker for me and I stuck with them pretty much the whole seminar and mixed many a song on them."

Additional artists who have picked Lord-Alge for their mixes include My Chemical Romance, The Doobie Brothers, Eric Clapton, Melissa Etheridge, Duran Duran, Phil Collins, Sade, U2, Celine Dion, Rise Against, Cheap Trick, Seal, and Aerosmith, among hundreds more.

"In my studio, I have a variety of monitors," he explains, "but I have created an alternate monitor location that engages the listener to focus 100% on dead center, perfect situation listening. Feet up on the couch, ears open, off you go. By putting them in that scenario, the monitors are non-complimentary and make you focus in on the details. The Barefoot monitors give me a place to judge my mixes and a place for my clients to actually enjoy the mixes."

Chris Lord-Alge is known inside the music industry for crafting and molding mixes that play well on virtually any playback system, including small speakers and FM radio.

"After listening to many, many speakers over the years I found that the Barefoot MM27's have a certain clarity and honesty I need from a monitor. I have a space where I can completely focus on listening and the detail I get is mind blowing. The imaging takes you to an amazing place I have them laser-focused for listening on my couch and everyone who listens to them loves the experience."
