Cloud Microphones partner with Hal Leonard Europe for European distribution

Leading sheet music publisher and MI distributor will distribute Cloud Microphone’s hugely popular Cloudlifter range across all European territories

Leading sheet music publisher and MI distributor Hal Leonard Europe has today announced that with immediate effect, it will begin distributing Cloud Microphone’s Cloudlifter range across all European territories. The addition of Cloud Microphones to its distribution ensures Hal Leonard Europe continues its mission to supply the best pro audio solutions to enable lifelong music making for everyone.

Cloud Microphones has established itself as an industry leader and innovator in microphone technology and manufacturing, since the brand debuted in 2009 at the Audio Engineering Society show in New York City. Through modern design and innovation of the patented gain circuit, which overcomes the low-output signal associated with traditional ribbon microphones, Cloud mics enjoy greatly increased sensitivity, ultra low-noise, and incredible depth of sound field as a result of the natural and rich character of the RCA style ribbon, at the heart of the design.

This gain circuit has also led to the incredibly popular Cloudlifter line of Mic Activators. These uniquely original boxes break out the internal electronics found within the Cloud ribbon mics, into a format that can be used with most microphones people already have. Powered exclusively along the microphone cable, these work inline on “Phantom Power” to provide an additional +25 dB of ultra-clean gain and sensitivity from the mic. The result is world-class preamplification, in an easy to use and affordable package that’s widely accessible.

Hal Leonard Europe is part of the world’s largest publisher of printed and digital publications, sheet music and music education resources, and is now a distributor of musical instruments as well as pro audio, gifts and accessories. Hal Leonard Europe is adding Cloud Microphones to a growing roster of pro audio brands, including Samson Technologies, AVID recording software, Kali Audio, ROLI, Singular Sound, IK Multimedia and more.

“We’ve had a wildly successful partnership with Hal Leonard in North America for several years now. We are extremely excited to be able to extend that partnership across the Atlantic and look forward to similar success with the HLE team.”

David Bryce, Director of Sales & Marketing, Cloud.
