Cloudlifter CL-Z Variable Impedance Mic Activator USED ITEM
Cloudlifter CL-Z Variable Impedance Mic Activator is a great addition for any passive ribbon microphone or low-output dynamic microphone (here's looking at you, Shure SM7!) Note: you gotta have phantom power on your mic preamp for this thing to work!
Very clean near mint condition, save some bucks compared to buying new!
Here's the official info -
You get control over the input impedance (to get the best out of any microphone), 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 sees your preamp. Whether you run live sound or just use a variety of mics on a daily basis in your studio, you'll love working with the CL-Z mic activator.
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 specific input impedances, 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 microphone.
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 uncolored. It is particularly useful for low-output ribbon and dynamic mics in your studio, and it's perfect for driving long cable runs from the stage to the board in live sound settings.
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 in many studio layouts, it's across the room, or even in another room altogether. 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.
