Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-2 Mic Activator


The Cloud Microphones CL-2 is a microphone activator that will boast the signal of passive microphones such as dynamic and ribbon microphones by up to 25 dB. The CL-2 is the bigger brother of the CL-1 - having 2 x microphone inputs instead of just one. Both the CL-2 and CL-1 are both rugged, road ready units. Ideal for live recording or in the studio. 

    • Cloud Microphones CL-2 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      A Must-Have Addition to Dynamic and Ribbon Microphones!

      It’s all about gain and impedance. While some of the best sounding microphones out there are low-output dynamics and ribbons, pre-amplification can be challenging due to the gain and impedance requirements. Cloudlifters address this by giving passive microphone signals a major inline boost -up to +25db of ultra-clean gain- while properly loading the microphones’ transformer for optimal performance.

      The Cloudlifter® CL-2 is completely self contained, with two independent channels, driven only by the phantom power from your mixer or preamp. Ideal for dynamics and ribbons alike, the CL-2 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-2 can prevent added noise over long cable runs. With endless uses, Cloudlifters are quickly becoming a standard workhorse solution for audio and broadcast professionals.

      Cloudlifters are recommended for improving the signal to noise ratio and performance of passive microphone/preamp combinations with the following:

      Recording direct into a DAW interface
      Noisy or low gain preamps
      Mixers/preamps that negatively impact the sound at higher gain setting – passive ribbon microphones
      Low-output dynamic microphones
      Miking softer sound sources such as acoustic instruments and voice
      Long cable runs (output)
