Active Ribbon Microphone With switchable response curves for voice and music.
Hand crafted in Tucson, AZ USA Made in the U.S.A
Modern technology elevates a classic sound
From direct RCATM lineage, the Cloud 44-A microphone reawakens the spirit of the classic RCA Type 44 ribbon mic for today?s applications. Internally within the Cloud 44-A, the ribbon itself remains unchanged, handcrafted to specifications first prescribed in the 1930s by RCA's Harry F. Olson. Everything else has been engineered anew, however, using 21st century improvements transcending the capabilities of Olson's time. Utilizing Cloud?s award-winning, patented Cloudlifter circuitry with its unique features and ultra-clean characteristics, the 44-A is an active ribbon mic with personality from the past plus all the strength and clarity required for today?s most demanding tasks.
It’s all about gain and impedance. While some of the best sounding microphones out there are low-output dynamics and ribbons, pre-amplification can be challenging due to the gain and impedance requirements. Cloudlifters address this by giving passive microphone signals a major inline boost -up to +25db of ultra-clean gain- while properly loading the microphones’ transformer for optimal performance.
The Cloudlifter® CL-1 is completely self contained, driven only by the phantom power from your mixer or preamp. Ideal for dynamics and ribbons alike, the CL-1 turns phantom power into the extra gain required for using passive microphones. The immediate dose of extra gain can make even a budget microphone/preamp combination sound clean and professional. For broadcasting and live sound, the active output signal of the CL-1 can prevent added noise over long cable runs. With endless uses, Cloudlifters are quickly becoming a standard workhorse solution for audio and broadcast professionals.
