Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator

The Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1 provides active gain for low output microphones such as ribbons and dynamics. The CL-1 converts phantom power into gain - up to 25dB. It does not color the sound like a pre-amp, rather increases the presence of the microphones’ characteristics in the overall signal output.


Active Gain for Dynamics and Ribbons
The Cloudlifter® CL-1 is completely self contained, driven only by the phantom power from your mixer or preamp. Ideal for dynamics and ribbons alike, the CL-1 turns phantom power into the extra gain required for using passive microphones. The immediate dose of extra gain can make even a budget microphone/preamp combination sound clean and professional. For broadcasting and live sound, the active output signal of the CL-1 can prevent added noise over long cable runs. With endless uses, Cloudlifters are quickly becoming a standard workhorse solution for audio and broadcast professionals.
