AES NY 2019 — Cloud Microphones introduce Cloudlifter ZX

Add two types of transformer colouration to the usual clean Cloudlifter mic gain

As with other Cloudlifters (see previous SOS reviews of other members of the range from November 2011 here and December 2013 here), the new Cloudlifter ZX provides plenty of clean gain for low-output microphones from a box which only needs phantom power to operate — in this case, up to 45dB of gain if needed — but the new ZX also offers two types of transformer colouration which you can add to your sound as desired. The ZX won't ship until early next year, but Rodger Cloud gave SOS Editor-in-Chief Paul White a sneak preview on their stand at AES — see the video interview above.
