Perfect for location recording or in the studio, the two-channel Cloudlifter from Cloud Microphones was designed in collaboration with Stephen Sank to interface passive, low-output ribbon microphones with any phantom-powered input device. Offering two channels of portable, world-class, initial preamplification for any passive signal, the Cloudlifter simplifies the task of using ribbon mics in any application.
The son of Jon R. Sank, the designer of some of the best and last of RCA’s ribbon microphones such as the BK-11 and BK-10A, Stephen Sank is Cloud’s chief design engineer. “The Cloudlifter is small enough to go anywhere and use with your favorite preamp,” he explains. “The purity of its sound makes it a pleasure to work with. With only a minimum amount of makeup gain required, your tracks will always shine.”
Capable of elevating your ribbon mic’s sound over 20 dB, the Cloudlifter is equipped with direct-coupled JFET (Junction Field-Effect Transistor) circuitry that is ultra-transparent. Offering clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source, the technology keeps the audio path free-and-clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors. Pure sound is the end product, without any coloration.
