CL-Zi ia a compact inline unit using phantom power to add up to 25dB of ultra-clean gain, maximizing the clarity & strength of any microphone that does not use phantom power itself
The Cloudlifter Zi applies the same technology to instruments with high-impedance (Hi-Z) outputs, such as electric guitars, basses, low-output piezo pickups used with acoustic guitars, or vintage electro-mechanical Stage pianos that employ a passive output. Via the Neutrik XLR combo jack, it does double duty on instruments and mics: Plug your guitar or other instrument into the jack's ¼'' center, or use the XLR portion for a microphone. Then, connect the XLR output to a phantom-power-capable input on your mixer, preamp, or computer recording interface, and experience sound that's not merely louder, but better in every way that matters.
Like all Cloud products, the Cloudlifter Zi is handcrafted entirely in the USA using environmentally sustainable methods, and comes with a limited lifetime warranty upon product registration.
