Cloud Microphones

Cloud Microphones manufactures top-of-the-line microphones, activators, and more! Cloud’s award-winning Ribbon Microphones and patented Cloudlifter Mic Activators are used by artists, engineers, podcasters, creators, broadcasters, and venues all over the world. Cloud Microphones' Cloudlifters are made in the United States and on the Navajo Reservation, supporting small businesses in the southwest.

Bring Your Mics to Life

Cloudlifters are designed to dramatically improve the performance of lower output microphones by increasing their sensitivity to bring their natural tonal characteristics into focus. The single channel Cloudlifter CL-Z provides up to +25dB of ultra-clean gain with variable impedance, optimized for a wide variety of microphones. The Cloudlifter CL-Z provides new tonal possibilities with continuously variable input impedance via a single control - the vari-Z knob. The vari-Z knob provides ultimate control over your microphone's character. Whether you’re using an expensive microphone/preamp combo in a professional application, or more affordable microphones with a basic home set-up, Cloudlifters provide way more signal from the microphone itself, allowing the preamp to operate in its optimal range - this reduces noise and distortion. For those recording professionally, at home, or performing on stage, Cloudlifters are valuable tools that produce high quality, professional audio!

Up to +25 dB of Gain

Hear more of your dynamic and ribbon microphone's natural character and increase the clarity with +25dB of ultra-clean gain! Cloudlifters provide ultra-clean gain in 2 distinct stages while optimizing impedance loading.

The Cloudlifter uses +48v Phantom Power, but does not pass power to the mic. For this reason, the Cloudlifter is a great way to keep your ribbon and tube mics safe from exposure to Phantom Power while providing the extra gain they need.

Sonically Transform Your Microphones

With a range from 150 to 15k Ohms, the Vari-Z knob delivers ultimate control over your microphone's character. It provides the ability to precisely match - or creatively mismatch - the ideal manufacturer-specified impedance of dynamic, tube, and ribbon mics.

Perfect for Recording Artists, Home, Studio Engineers, Podcasts, AV, & Live Sound

Whether you are a pro studio looking for more gain from your ribbon or tube mics, or narrating a podcast or video with a dynamic mic, it’s easy to create quality content with the Cloudlifter. Now, with the Vari-Z knob you can take those possibilities even further to really get the best sound possible.

  • FOR HOME STUDIOS & PROFESSIONAL RECORDING: In the studio, boost the signal of quiet instrument sources like vocals, percussion, or acoustic instruments while maintaining the natural sound of your microphone. The Cloudlifter CL-Z is the perfect podcast equipment piece for creators who want to take their production to the next level!
  • REDUCE NOISE WHILE ADDING MICROPHONE CLARITY & SIGNAL STRENGTH: The Cloudlifter microphone activator uses Phantom power to give passive mics up to +25dB without passing Phantom power onto the mics themselves. Reduce unwanted feedback while increasing the clarity of your microphones. The Cloudlifter CL-Z adds variable impedance and additional features for specific tonal shaping and control and impedance matching.
  • DESIGNED FOR PROFESSIONAL RESULTS: Our home studio equipment is perfect for podcasts, live streaming, radio broadcasts, live sound, and studio recording. It's designed to seamlessly integrate with your preamp, maintaining ease-of-use for any professional.
  • EXCELLENT COMPATIBILITY: This microphone activator is compatible with tube, battery, or power supply driven microphones – safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of Phantom power. Use the innovative CL-Z to shape and contour the sound of your ribbon or dynamic microphone.
  • TRANSFORM ANY BASIC MIC: Our mic activator does not power the mics themselves. Instead, place the Cloudlifter at the front of your dynamic mic, hit it with Phantom Power, and watch how the sounds amplify from your basic mic like never before!
