Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-4

Cloudlifter CL-4 Mic Activator
MFR# CL-4

Product Description

The Cloudlifter CL-4 Mic Activator is based on Cloud’s award-winning Cloudlifter technology that converts phantom power into an additional +25 dB of ultra-clean gain for low output dynamic and ribbon mics. Cloudlifters solve problems posed by noisy preamps and can be used to drive stronger, cleaner signals over long XLR cable runs. The single rack space CL-4 is simple and compact, featuring four rear-mounted sets of balanced XLR inputs and outputs and is ideal for broadcast, live sound, public address, and professional studio applications.

Cloudlifters dramatically improve the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over long XLR cable runs and providing significant ultra-clean gain, before the mixer or preamp. This allows the microphone’s preamp to operate using much lower gain settings, resulting in significantly reduced noise and improved clarity. The CL-4 is enclosed in a rugged rack-mount enclosure offering excellent shielding and durability.

Using patent pending 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.

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

Features:

  • Dramatically reduces noise caused by long cable runs and low-gain preamps
  • Easy to use self contained design requires only phantom power
  • Recommended for use with all passive microphones
  • Compatible with tube, battery, or power supply driven microphones
  • Safe for all passive ribbons with no transfer of phantom
  • Utilizes Patent Pending Class A, Discrete JFET circuitry
  • Ideal impedance loading for optimal performance @3Kohms
  • Rack mount steel enclosure, for studio, stage and broadcasting
  • Free lifetime limited warranty for parts and labor, with registration
  • Handcrafted entirely in the USA

The Cl-4 runs on phantom power and allows up to 4 mics at once. It does not pass phantom power to your mics. It raises the output so you can use normal settings on your mic pre’s. I use it with ribbon mics on lower volume sources like acoustic classical guitar or flute etc. It’s a must have for lower output passive ribbons.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
