Cloud Microphones Now Shipping Cloudlifter Zi DI and Mic Activator

Cloud Microphones is now shipping its new Cloudlifter Zi Vari-Z Instrument DI and Mic Activator, offering a variable impedance “Z” knob and high-pass filter that creates massive tone shaping through the manipulation of impedance loading.

Cloud said the Cloudlifter Zi’s wide tonal palette comes from its ability to manipulate impedance loading via its variable central knob, along with a switchable high-pass filter.

The CL-Zi has a three-position gain switch allowing for minimum gain, more gain, or the maximum gain available (up to approx. +25dB for microphones or +12dB for instruments). This allows users to access clean gain and a lower noise floor for many studio or stage applications.

As with all Cloudlifters, the Zi can be used with dynamic microphones to increase gain before feedback on stage or ribbon microphones to boost signal quality in the studio.

The Cloudlifter CL-Zi is now available at authorized dealers for $379.
