Elevate Your Sound.
Recording into a DAW interface, performing live on stage, producing a podcast, using long cable runs in the studio, miking soft sound sources and using noisy or low gain preamps are just a few of its many uses.
Provides two channels of up to +25dB of ultra-clean gain and optimal impedance loading for dynamic and ribbon mics to perform their best. Simply connect one or two dynamic or ribbon mics to the input and connect a mixer or preamp to the output. Great for two mono channels or a stereo configuration.
The Cloudlifter's patented discrete JFET circuitry preserves the source's natural sound while keeping the direct audio path clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors.
Simply connect your dynamic or ribbon mic to the input and connect a mixer or preamp to the output. The Cloudlifter does the rest.
"Using the Cloudlifter is as simple as plugging it in, yet it delivers over 20dB of clean gain to get the best from low-sensitivity dynamic mics, especially passive ribbon models."
"Difficult to live without once you've tried it!"

Are you looking for the right gear for your recording set-up and budget?
Choosing the correct item for your home recording set-up is easy for some and confusing for most. Even if you have been working with audio for years, things are constantly changing. The marketing guff and searching the net usually sends you down a rabbit hole of time-wasting.
The core of Indigo Oak Studio is to help people set up and record by taking the mystery and costs out of recording. Right now, that cost you will save is time, patience and disappointment.
"Great service from Aaron-already Aaron has helped me make some important early decisions for going forward.

Pete"
