    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. Enclosed in a rugged steel enclosure offering excellent shielding, the CL1 additionally has provisions for stage or stand mounting with the included strap.

    Using patent pending technology that keeps the direct audio path free-and-clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors, the CL1 houses direct-coupled, discrete JFET circuitry that delivers world class, ultra-clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source.

    Like all Cloud Microphones products, the Cloudlifter Mic Activator series is handcrafted using environmentally friendly methods, entirely in the USA.

    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)

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Does whats it's supposed to, but for my setup I still have issues with hissing and background noise. It definitely helps though and you can definitely hear the difference. I have had to tweak my setup around it, but I think it's way better than what I started out with. I will need to test again when I purchase a different (solid state) recorder or preamp/iterface. I am satisfied, but not blown away.
