The Cloudlifter X is the latest addition to the popular range of mic activators from Cloud Microphones. In collaboration with Cinemag, the Cloudlifter X has been designed with a transformer that adds vibe to any recording.
The Cloudlifter X transformer mic activator
With the X, you get even more discrete gain than before with two gain settings accessed by a single switch. For softer sources, like capturing speech from guests on your podcast, you have +36 dB of additional gain without increasing the noise floor.
For louder sources like SM57 snare mics or tube condensers that only require a subtle gain bump, the +12 dB setting will do the trick while still leaving you plenty of headroom for post-production and mixdown.
When it comes to tone colour and saturation, the nickel-core Cinemag transformer will add a variable amount according to the gain of the signal. The more gain present, the more character you’ll get from your recording.
Overall, the Cloudlifter X is an incredibly versatile solution for home recording, content creation, or any application where you might be using different types of microphones like foley for example.
With a transformer and extra gain with two settings, it takes an already tried and tested workhorse and adds more creative flexibility without pushing up the price tag too much.
