From Our Research Team:
A Must-have Tool for Any RigLow-gain microphones typically come with high-impact problems that can frustrate engineers. Unfortunately, many low-output microphones, such as the SM7b, the RE20, and virtually all ribbon microphones are among the best sounding mics out there. Luckily, there's the Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator by Cloud Microphones - a perfect solution to any situation in which you need to cleanly boost a microphone signal before the preamp. Driven by the phantom power circuit on board your mixer, the Cloudlifter CL-1 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-1 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. Install techs and live sound engineers love the CL-1, because it can provide long cable runs with enough energy to ward off noise. It's also excellent for acoustic guitars with XLR outputs, giving them an immediate dose of extra gain that prevents noise from infiltrating your sound. Whether you work in sound reinforcement or in a studio, you'll find endless uses for this amazing device!

by John from Saugus, MAWhat more could I ask for. It works perfectly and is built like a tank. I am using it with a SM7B Shure microphone and an Avid C600 interface. No need for a pre-amp in-line. Great Product!

This thing is great!!! I opened the package and said "this is it?" but I plugged it in and was immediately impressed. If you have a mic with a low output, the cloudlifter is the first thing you should turn to. close [-]
The Cloud Lifts
by Victor Tarassov from Princeton NJI love this thing "Cloudlifter CL-1" I have used it on a Ribbon mic and on my Shure SM 57. On the Shure SM 57 its like having a great mic that really works well with live and recoding. With the CL-... read more [+]1 and my Fishman Solo 220 Amp I can use the SM 57 live with my Flamenco guitars and have great tone tone tone with no feedback. I was able to turn my pickup volume down and just have the tone of the mic. Thanks Mark Magdich x1265 for always helping me out.
