Cloud Microphones is unveiling their new CL4 rack-mount Cloudlifter array. Housed in a rugged steel enclosure, the CL4 can process up to four XLR feeds simultaneously, making it ideal for live and broadcast applications as well as professional and project studios. Based on Cloud’s award-winning Cloudlifter technology that converts phantom power into up to 25 dB of ultra-clean gain for low output dynamic and ribbon mics, the CL-4 solves problems posed by noisy preamps, and can be used to drive stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs. The single rack space unit is simple and compact, featuring four rear-mounted sets of balanced XLR inputs and outs. “We’ve had an almost constant demand for rack-mounted Cloudlifters for years now“, says company founder Rodger Cloud. “It’s great to finally be able to accommodate those requests.” The CL4 will be available for shipping before the end of 2013.
