My Review

A simple device. Simple idea. Add 25 db of clean gain to microphones before they hit the preamp. If you own a ribbon mic, shure sm7b or similar low gain microphones a cloudlifter is a must have. It doesnt add a sound or a color it just makes your mic have much more gain. Many times with an SM7b or a ribbon you have to crank the mic pre gain so high that it adds a lot of noise. Use the cloudlifter and have plenty of gain without the noise. If you use a ribbon mic on softer sources, an SM7b or RE-20 for vocals then grab a cloudlifter
