Additional Information
  • Product Description

    The versatile AEA R84 large ribbon microphone is suitable for a wide range of instruments, including brass, strings, percussion, electric guitar and bass.  At just 0.00007 of an inch the ultra-thin, low-tension ribbon element of the R84 ensures a quick response, whatever the application.  Capable of handling better than 165 dB SPL at higher frequencies, when used on vocals or instruments the R84 offers a performance that is intimate, warm and detailed, yet not ever harsh.

    The AEA R84 is supplied in a complete system that includes a shock mount, 6' mic cable and sturdy foam-lined carrying case.  Weighing-in at under 2 lbs (0.9 Kg) and measuring 8" (30 cm) tall and 2.7" (7 cm) in diameter.

    The Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-Z mic activator uses phantom power from your preamp to solve an array of common issues with dyanmic and ribbon microphones while maximizing your signal’s quality, making it a must-have box for your studio or live toolset. It’s designed to be a middleman between your mic and preamp, maximizing signal quality while driving long cable runs. The direct-coupled, discrete JFET circuitry preserves your signal’s integrity while the CL-Z goes to work. You get control over the input impedance to get the best out of any mic, and a variable output level (+12 to +24dB) so you can drive even the longest cable runs with ease. You even get a variable low-cut filter to clean up your signal before it ever graces your preamp. Whether you run live sound or just use a variety mics on a daily basis in your studio, you’ll love working with the CL-Z mic activator!
    Variable input impedance

    The Cloud Microphones CL-Z mic activator’s input features variable impedance from 150 to 15k ohms. Since every microphone is different and typically sound best at a specific input impedance, you can tailor the CL-Z to any mic to get the best performance. And even if your preamp features variable impedance, the CL-Z lets you control this near your mic – great if your mic pres are across the room, let alone across a crowded venue!

    Hot but clean output
    Sometimes you need a little extra juice to get a quality mic signal to your preamp, especially with long cable runs. The Cloud Microphones CL-Z mic activator makes it easy, adding 12 to 24dB of gain to your signal, while the premium circuitry passes your audio un-colored. It’s great for low-output ribbon and dynamic mics in your studio, and it’s awesome at driving long cable runs from the stage to the board in live sound settings.

    Pre-preamp control and flexibility
    The CL-Z from Cloud Microphones is placed between your mic and preamp, giving you access to the additional gain and variable low-cut filter on the CL-Z. In your studio, that makes it easy to optimize your signal before it hits your preamp. Sure, your preamp may have a filter, and maybe even variable impedance – but it’s across the room, maybe even in another room. The CL-Z lets you dial the filter in and maximize your signal for a long cable run, meaning you’ll be hitting your favorite preamp with the best signal possible.
