    Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-4 Mic Activator

    Cloudlifter Goes to the Rack!

    Cloudlifter CL-4 Mic Activator is a four channel, easy to use, solution for common audio problems faced in live sound, broadcast and recording studios. Designed for live sound, broadcasting, and recording, the CL-4 is a four channel rack unit that safely uses any standard phantom powered microphone input device to provide four independent channels of up to +25db of additional ultra-clean gain, before the mic pre. This drastically reduces noise on long cable runs (output), while allowing the preamp to operate in its optimal gain range. The result is much more of the mics natural response and a clean and professional signal.

    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-4 is enclosed in a rugged rack-mount enclosure offering excellent shielding and durability.

    Using patented technology that keeps the direct audio path free-and-clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors, the CL-4 houses Class A, Discrete JFET circuitry that delivers world class, ultra-clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source.
