What's in The Box:

Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator

  • Limited Lifetime Warranty





    The Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator from Cloud Microphones is a compact, single-input solution for common audio problems in the field and in the studio involving low-output passive microphones, including ribbons. The CL-1 uses any standard phantom-powered mixer or microphone input device to provide up to +25 dB of clean, transparent gain. This improves signal-to-noise ratio and improves 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. The CL-1 is housed in a rugged steel enclosure which offers shielding and durability. Additionally, the CL-1 has provisions for stage or stand mounting. 

    Transparent Gain
    Gives passive mics up to +25 dB additional active output and keeps the direct audio path free-and- clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors. The CL-1 houses discrete JFET circuitry that delivers clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source

    Useful for a Variety of Applications

    Use with noisy or low-gain preamps
    Use with mixers/preamps that negatively impact the sound at higher gain setting 
    Use with low-output dynamic microphones and ribbons
    Mic softer sound sources such as acoustic instruments and voice
    Use for long cable runs

  • Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution

    • Uses Phantom power to give passive mics (mainly used for dynamic and ribbon mics) up to +25dB without passing Phantom power on to mic
    • Easy to use self contained design requires only Phantom power to work. **Does not use Phantom power to power mics
    • Recommended for use with all passive dynamic microphones
    • Compatible with tube, battery, or power supply driven microphones – safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of Phantom
    • Does not power the mics themselves using Phantom power (that is not what this is designed for). instead, place the cloudlifter at the front of your dynamic mic, then hit it with Phantom Power and your basic mic (even an SM58 style mic) will shine like never before
