The Cloudlifter CL-2 turns phantom power into ultra-clean gain for dynamic mics like the Shure SM7B, and ribbon mics like the RCA 44A
Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-2 Mic Activator
A Must-Have Tool for Dynamics and Ribbons!
Cloudlifter CL-2 Mic Activator is a dual channel, easy to use, compact solution for common audio problems faced in the field and in the studio. Designed for all passive microphones – including ribbons- the CL-2 safely uses any standard phantom powered microphone input device to provide two independent channels of up to +25db of ultra-clean, transparent gain.
Cloudlifters dramatically improve 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-2 is enclosed in a rugged steel enclosure offering excellent shielding and durability.
Using patent pending technology that keeps the direct audio path free-and- clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors, the CL-2 houses discrete JFET circuitry that delivers world class, ultra-clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source.
Cloudlifters are recommended for improving the signal to noise ratio and performance of passive microphone/preamp combinations with the following:
Recording direct into a DAW interface
noisy or low gain preamps
mixers/preamps that negatively impact the sound at higher gain setting – passive ribbon microphones
low-output dynamic microphones
miking softer sound sources such as acoustic instruments and voice
long cable runs (output)
Gives mics up to +25dB additional active output
Two channel, dual mono version
Provides 2 distinct stages of ultra-clean gain
Easy to use self contained design requires only phantom power – Recommended for use with all passive microphones
Compatible with tube, battery, or power supply driven microphones – Safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of phantom
Utilizes Patent Pending Discrete JFET circuitry
Ideal impedance loading for optimal performance @3Kohms
Rugged, road ready and portable, for studio, stage and broadcasting – Free lifetime limited warranty for parts and labor, with registration
