Microphone Preamp Booster Activator for Livestream, Broadcast, Podcast, Vocal Recordings Single-Channel (MB-1)

(12 customer reviews)

USES 48V PHANTOM POWER TO ADD CLEAN GAIN: Professional dynamic mic preamp activator that uses 48V phantom power to add 25dB of clean gain to dynamic and ribbon microphones while dropping the noise floor to an astonishing -70dB. (Note: phantom power is required and must be supplied by your audio interface or an external 48v power supply. The MB-1 does not supply phantom power).
FOR STUDIO AND BROADCAST RECORDING: In the studio, boost the signal of quiet instrument sources like vocals, percussion or acoustic instruments, while maintaining the natural sound of your microphone.
FOR LIVE SOUND: Durable enough for the stage, and quiet enough for the studio. For live sound, you can reduce line noise on long cable runs and improve the gain before feedback ratio for public speakers or singers.
REDUCE FEEDBACK WHILE ADDING MICROPHONE CLARITY: with -70dB noise rating you’ll be able to cut through the mix without adding feedback or unwanted hiss and hum.
DESIGNED FOR PROFESSIONAL RESULTS: Perfect for podcasts, live streaming, radio broadcasts, live sound, and studio recording.

    I bought this to augment the sound of my newly purchased at2040, and plugging it all into my Scarlett Solo audio interface rendered phenomenal results. I have nothing to compare it to, but I can say this: to get adequate results prior to this, my gain was set to between 8-9 on the dial, and with the Coda, I can get good results with the gain set between 4-5. The waveform on Audacity clearly indicated a massive reduction in any kind of hiss or audio artifacts that pop up when normally you have to really kick up the gain.Read more

    I use the MB-1 to boost the levels on a Sennheiser e935. It works great! I have another, more expensive but otherwise similar, preamp from another company. The MB-1 appears to be built at least as well — perhaps better. And both provide very clean audio.Read more

    I was using a USB mic and decided to upgrade to an xlr. Opted for the shure SM58 with a steinburg UR12 interface for my hobbies. However, quickly I realized the sound quality was not all that great when I boosted the mic on the interface. The noise floor with my interface could be heard…. but any recorded vocals weren’t much louder than that. So if I did any noise reduction. It muffled. I tried to fix it with EQ, but it became more work than necessary and wasn’t perfect. After some research found this. It pretty much fixed most of my audio headaches. No need to spend double or triple on a cloudlifter. This does the job fine. Voice is clear and that is all I need.Read more

    I had bought this as I needed one for a second mic, the cloud lifter was out of stock, so I came across this and decided to give it a try. I find that the cloud lifter is a bit clearer with higher levels, it doesn’t clip as fast. This basically becomes distorted when the mic clips and it’s more finicky than the cloud lifter. I don’t think the extra $100-140 the cloud lifter costs is worth putting into it, if I were buying again I would still buy this one, I would have actually bought 2 of them vs spending the extra. Bottom Line, the sound quality on the cloud lifter is a smidge better but not for the extra money, keep the volume of the Mic at a reasonable level so it doesn’t clip and you will never have an issue.Read more

    Works as advertised. It’s a simple plug-and-play, and the output from the mic is instantly raised. Just make sure you adjust the rest of your settings in plug-ins etc where you might hav ebumped up the gain. It’s a nice clean sound, GREAT value and good price.Read more

    This is the perfect solution if you’re using a low-gain mic like the rode podmic. It takes phantom power, so as long as you have an audio interface or soundboard with 48v then you won’t need a separate external power source. I looked at the Cloudlifter but the quality on this is just as good and I’m super impressed with how transparent it is. It really doesn’t color the sound at all. Another thing worth noting is that the enclosure is metal and it has brackets on the front and back to protect your XLR cables. The brackets would work well for attaching the unit to a microphone stand with velcro too. I highly recommend for anyone that is podcasting, streaming, or recording vocals.This is the perfect solution if you’re using a low-gain mic like the rode podmic.

    I have been needing a new microphone for a long time and the Shure SM7B ended up being my choice. The issue is even with my audio interface I would need more gain to get the sound I was looking for. This is where the MB-1 comes into place. I was planing on picking up a Cloud Lifter as I thought that would be my only option. Let me be the first to tell you save your money on the Cloud lifter and get the MB-1. I am getting 25db clean gain and its so much cheaper then the alternative. The device is well built and once you plug in your XLR cables you never have to look at it again. I have mine mounted under my desk. Perfect for this mic.Read more

    I was looking for an economical alternative to the Fethead, SE Dynamite, or CloudLifter. My use case is that I’m running a Rode PodMic connected to a FocusRite Scarlett Solo. Everybody knows that the Podmic is pretty low output and needs some additional gain. Without the MB-1 I would need to run the Scarlett’s gain up to 90-100%. With the MB-1 I run at about 40-50% gain on the Scarlett. I am not an audio professional, but to my ears the output is clean and clear with no hiss or buzz. At the time of my purchase this box was about 1/3 the price of a cloudlifter, 1/2 the price of a dynamite, and $15-20 less than the Fethead. Happy with the purchase.Read more

    This mic preamp does exactly what a cloudlifter or launcher would do at a fraction of the cost. Nice build quality, no distortion. I paired this with my Rode Procaster and had a huge improvement in gain as compared to my Scarlett Solo (3rd gen). Glad this came out right as I was looking to buy one of these.Read more

    Zero noise, gets that SM7B rolling for half the price as the cloudlifter. Some reviews in youtube say it’s even louder and with same or better silence than cloud lifter. I tested it side to side with a clark teknik and while the teknik is great for the price ($30) this one is absolutely silent and actually gave a neutral sound to my mic. 5/5Read more

    This made an SM57 the microphone everyone calls that ole instrument mic… yes drives me nuts. I use this for a podcast and singing with focusrite and Maono mixer and ifi filter with the 5v power source with windows 10 DAW and Ableton. I feel like I own a 1000,000 recording studio or maybe that’s just in my head but it is so clean and recordings are amazing. I can now have my volumes turned all the way down and I only get all of the good sounds I need to record and go live etc. This is my alternative to the cloud version which is twice the cost. Focusrite 2i2. Have fun!Read more
