A Must-Have Tool for Dynamics and Ribbons!
In Stock & Ready To Ship!
The compact, easy-to-use Cloud CL-1 Mic Activator is quite possibly one of the best tools you can have for any dynamic or ribbon microphone. Many preamps struggle to provide enough clean gain for passive ribbon mics. This is where the CL-1 Mic Activator comes in. By utilizing any standard phantom powered device input you'll get up to 25dB of additional pristine, transparent gain. The CL-1 does this safely without passing any phantom power to the mic itself. As much of a necessity as this device is for ribbon microphones, it's equally as important for standard low-power dynamic mics. When you're able to provide stonger, cleaner signals for passive mic runs the benefits become obvious for broadcast and studio applications. Such a dramatic improvement in your signal-to-noise ratio will amaze you. Think about it...by having such clean gain added to your signal before you get to a preamp you'll be able to turn down your preamp, reducing noise. On the other hand, if you have a preamp that likes to be driven, then you've already got 25dB of clean gain to drive it! Grab your old trusty Shure SM58 or SM57 microphone and see what we mean.

Cloud uses discrete JFET circuitry and patent pending technologies to keep the audio path clean and clear, while maintaining the source's tonal character.
