Since their debut at the 2009 Audio Engineering Society, Cloud Microphones has established itself as an industry leader and innovator in microphone technology and manufacturing. Perhaps Cloud’s most well-known products, the Cloudlifters, allow users to increase the sound quality of their existing microphone and preamplification set-ups. They have had a massive impact on several sectors within the audio industry including podcasting.
Cloud offers a fantastic range of microphone activators designed to improve the performance of your microphone. The Cloudlifters are powered along the microphone cable, working in line with the phantom power to increase the sensitivity of your microphone and provide an additional 25dB of ultra-clean gain, and reduce feedback. The result is world-class pre-amplification, in an easy to use and affordable package that’s widely accessible, whilst being easily portable thanks to its compact design and robust build quality.
The industry standard Cloudlifter is the CL-1, which comes highly recommended by a range of audio professionals. For those who require multiple microphone inputs Cloud also offer the CL-2 model with two inputs and the CL-4 with 4 inputs.
Their most recent release is the CLX which sees them build upon the CL1, with this model providing up to 36dB of additional ultra-clean gain and selectable output modes perfect for a variety of audio sources.
