Cloudlifter CL-1 mic activator is simple and compact, designed for all passive microphones (including ribbons). The CL-1 safely uses any standard phantom powered microphone input device to provide up to +25db of ultra-clean, transparent gain. Cloudlifters dramatically improve the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live and studio applications. Driven by the phantom power circuit on board a mixer, the Cloudlifter CL-2 adds up to +25dB of perfectly transparent gain to your signal, giving low-output mics a major boost which can make even budget microphones sound clean and professional. The Cloudlifter CL-2 is also ideal for use with any ribbon mic, since it changes the phantom power that can hurt them into the extra gain they require. It can provide long cable runs with enough energy to ward off noise. The CL-Z mic activator uses phantom power from a preamp to solve issues with dynamic and ribbon microphones while maximizing a signal's quality. The direct-coupled, discrete JFET circuitry preserves a signal's integrity. Get control over the input impedance to get the best out of any mic, anda variable output level (+12 to +24dB) to drive even the longest cable runs with ease.
