Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator

A Must-Have Tool for Dynamics and Ribbons!

Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator is an easy to use, compact solution for usual audio troubles experienced in the field and in the studio. Created for all passive mics– featuring ribbons – the CL-1 securely uses any sort of common phantom powered mic input device to deliver up to +25 db of ultra-clean, straightforward gain.

Cloudlifters significantly enhance the efficiency of passive mic signals by driving sturdier, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable television runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live, and studio applications. Wrapped in a ruggedized steel enclosure providing excellent covering, the CL-1 in addition has provisions for phase or stand mounting with the consisted of band.

Making use of patent pending technology that maintains the direct audio pathway free-and-clear of transformers, capacitors, and also resistors, the CL-1 residences direct-coupled, separate JFET circuitry that provides world class, ultra-clean gain while keeping 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 passive mics up to +25dB additional active output
Provides 2 ultra-clean gain stages using 4 hand-matched JFETs
Easy to use self contained design requires only phantom power
Recommended for use with all passive microphones
Safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of phantom
Utilizes Patent Pending Ultra-transparent Discrete D/C JFET circuitry
Ideal impedance loading for optimal performance @3Kohms
Rugged, road ready and portable, for studio, stage and broadcasting
