Cloudlifter 1-channel mic activator, +25dB in-line microphone preamplifier

Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator is an easy to use, compact solution for common audio problems faced in the field and in the studio. 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. Enclosed in a rugged steel enclosure offering excellent shielding, the CL-1 additionally has provisions for stage or stand mounting with the included strap.

Using patent pending technology that keeps the direct audio path free-and- clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors, the CL-1 houses discrete JFET circuitry that delivers world class, ultra-clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source.

    Indispensable pour les micros qui nécéssitent plus de gain.
    Différence notable pour éloigner le noise des interfaces audio avec un range de gain plus faible.

    Good preamp for voice
    Comparing to FetHead this sounds more natural without the mid brightness boost. Good for voice. I use it with my Beyerdynamic m160 and it's a good combo.

    Cl1 Cloud Lifter
    Bought this to use for a Beyer M-160 ribbon mic to boost the gain. Works great and doesn't add noise. Mount close to the mic. Does what it says. Economik was great to deal with.

    Cloudlifter CL-1 (thumbs up!)
    Not much to say on this product other than it does what it says it will. Delivers clean gain to my SM7b and Ribbon mics. No complaints! And it's always great dealing with Alex Sergerie and Economik.com. \m/
