The April issue of Mix includes the announcement of Cloud's new Cloudlifter Zi DI and Mic Activator.
"The Cloudlifter Zi ($499) is targeted for use on electric guitars, basses, low-output piezo pickups used with acoustic guitars, or vin- tage electro-mechanical stage pianos employing a passive output. Tone-shaping features include variable input impedance from 150 ohms to 15k ohms, letting you load the Cinemag instrument trans- former inside the Cloudlifter Zi to create a range of tonal variations. Also onboard is a three-position variable gain switch and variable highpass filtering that works in tandem with the variable imped- ance.. The high-pass filter has a slope of 6dB per octave."
