Avantone CR-14 & Cloudlifter CL1
Passive Ribbon Microphone & Mic Activator
The special dual-ribbon design offers a better sensitivity rating than most single ribbon mics on the market. You will also find that it does NOT exhibit the very dark, muted character of some ribbon mics. On the contrary, you will find it to be full-range with a very, natural detailed sound. The 'in-phase' signal is achieved when the microphone is addressed from the front side of the mic. (Where the AVANTONE logo is shown)
The CR-14 excels in a host of uses including studio solo vocals, group vocals and simultaneous vocal duets. Users also report extremely good results on piano, electric guitar cabs and acoustic guitars. The inherent natural sound of the CR-14 makes it a great choice for orchestral, woodwind brass instruments as well as hand-percussion instruments
Cloudlifter CL-1 Mic Activator is an easy to use, compact solution for common audio problems faced in the field and in the studio. Designed for all passive microphones – including ribbons- the CL-1 safely uses any standard phantom powered microphone input device to provide up to +25db of ultra- clean, transparent gain.
Cloudlifters dramatically improve the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live, and studio applications. Enclosed in a rugged steel enclosure offering excellent shielding, the CL-1 additionally has provisions for stage or stand mounting with the included strap.
