What does it do?
Adds +25dB of clean gain to Dynamic Microphones 🎤.
Dynamic microphones are great for podcasting and broadcasting because they tend to be better at rejecting unwanted ambient/room noise and are less sensitive than condenser mics 🎤.
In return, you introduce noise and artifacts in your recording and that is not good.
The Cloudlifter helps this by adding +25dB of clean gain before the signal hits the pre-amps so you can turn down the gain and get a much cleaner sound.
I use one with my Shure SM7b and ZED 10 mixer by Allen & Heath and it makes all the difference.
