Do You Love Good Sound?Then here's a tool you've got to pick up: the Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator! This is one of those amazing little devices that can easily mean the difference between pro and amateur sound. What does a Cloudlifter CL-1 do? Simple, it takes phantom power and turns it into a 25dB boost - just the thing you need to make your low-gain mics (think SM7, RE20, pretty much any ribbon mic) pop. But that's not all, ANY mic will benefit from this incredibly clean gain boost. You see (not to get like uber-technical here or anything, but) the more energy (gain) that's in your signal, the more resistant it is to noise. That's why you can use bare wire for +120dB speaker-level signal, but need to use massively shielded cables for +4dB mic level. And even then, it often not enough. Now, if you boost it up to about +29dB with a Cloudlifter CL-1, that signal instantly gets tough like Chuck Norris. Get the idea?
So for install sound, a Cloudlifter CL-1 is a killer way to boost up signal for super-long cable runs. In the studio, you'll get way better sound if you stick one in line, right behind each dynamic mic you use. On stage, if you've got an acoustic guitar, just stick one of these on the floor like a stomp box. You're gonna LOVE what it does for your sound. Heck, a Cloudlifter CL-1 can even make cheap dynamic mics sound like they came straight from a professional mic locker. SWEET, huh!? And since the Cloudlifter CL-1 doesn't pass phantom power, your precious ribbon mics are safe. So do yourself a favor, pick up one of these bad boys right away and discover just how much they improve your sound. It'll be one of the best investments you make in your rig!
