The CL-Z provides up to +25 dB of ultra-clean gain, variable input impedance and a variable high-pass filter.
Having an input impedance control that is sweepable from 150 ohms to 15k ohms allows you to creatively load the microphones’ output transformer, with the result being a wide range of new tonal variations becoming available to each mic.
The CL-Z has a two-position gain switch allowing for a gain boost of +12 or +25 dB. The CL-Z, like all Cloudlifters, requires phantom power to operate, yet does not pass phantom to the input. For this reason, Cloudlifters are an ideal solution for ribbon, dynamic, and tube microphones alike!
