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)
Gives mics up to +25dB additional active output
Two channel, dual mono version
Provides 2 distinct stages of ultra-clean gain
Easy to use self contained design requires only phantom power – Recommended for use with all passive microphones
