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 pres 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 un-colored. 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 optimize 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 maximize your signal for a long cable run, meaning you'll be hitting your favorite preamp with the best signal possible.
