Maximise Your Mic Signal for Stage or Studio

The Cloud Microphones CL-Z mic activator uses phantom power from your preamp to solve an array of common issues with dynamic and ribbon microphones while maximising your signal's quality, making it a must-have box for your studio or live toolset. It's designed to be a middleman between your mic and preamp, maximising signal quality while driving long cable runs. The direct-coupled, discrete JFET circuitry preserves your signal's integrity while the CL-Z goes to work.

You get control over the input impedance to get the best out of any mic, 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 ever graces your preamp. Whether you run live sound or just use a variety mics on a daily basis in your studio, you'll love working with the CL-Z mic activator!


Variable input impedance

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 a specific input impedance, 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 mic - great if your mic preamps are across the room, let alone across a crowded venue!


Hot but clean output

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 uncoloured. It's great for low-output ribbon and dynamic mics in your studio, and it's awesome at driving long cable runs from the stage to the board in live sound settings.


Pre-preamp control and flexibility

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 optimise your signal before it hits your preamp. Sure, your preamp may have a filter, and maybe even variable impedance - but it's across the room, maybe even in another room. The CL-Z lets you dial the filter in and maximise your signal for a long cable run, meaning you'll be hitting your favourite preamp with the best signal possible.


Please note: the CLZ is designed for use with passive ribbon and dynamic microphones only. Any microphone that requires phantom power, i.e. condenser or active microphones will not work with the CLZ.
