simple
Scotland rises, 17.07.2020
Using a Komplete Audio 6 soundcard/audio box and Shure SM7B mic.
Up at full gain (100%) the mic was still showing a relatively low level (about 40%), meaning at lot of post recording boost and then mastering work to sort out the hiss and extra 'air' created.......
this thing just plugs straight into the line between mic and box, with XLR at each end and now the input level is approx 70% and a beautiful clear and crisp signal.
Great, and particularly for the price, it just saved me a lot of work in post-processing.
Highly recommended to just give those vocals a lift.

It's just as good as everyone says
lapsio, 08.06.2020
There's not much to say about this activator. It's just as good as everyone says it is. The only disadvantage is price but considering it's usually needed for more expensive mics I don't think it's that bad.

Another bonus is that it makes dynamic mic not work when phantom power is turned off. And I know it sounds ridiculous to mention it as advantage but really - from privacy and security standpoint microphone that constantly captures all sounds no matter if you actually use it or not is terrible concept. And many people have mics permanently plugged into interfaces. So it just makes me feel better when I know my mic really doesn't work when phantom power is off.

I just wish it were cheaper
Hardline, 10.02.2021
Excellent unit. The gain it provides really is very clean. Made RØDE Procaster come alive completely. I use the cloudlifter even with audio onterfaces where the preamps are supposedly plenty able to drive Procaster, SM7B etc.

Very Clean Gain
Tibet Polater, 31.01.2021
I got this product in combination with the SM7B to get a clean boost. Safe to say I wasn't disappointed. Setup is pretty simple as you just need to plug in your XLR cable in and turn the phantom power on. I'd say definitely consider this product if you mic is low gain and it needs a clean boost. There are no apparent down sides as well. Size is small, weight is minimal.
