Greetings fellow PreSonus users. I have a question regarding ones' experience with plugging in a Shure SM7b. This is the true test for my StudioLive Series iii 16, and i think it passed. I was curious if anyone thinks a Cloudlfter is worth using with this board and mic combo. I plugged in my mic, direct, into the board and got some decent levels around 55db - so almost maxed-out... but the preamps are still quiet! So that's impressive. Just wondering if it's okay to run a PreAmp hot like that.

Thanks guys!

Hey,
and i think it passed
decent levels around 55db


Passed and that results not match or missing I'm here something ?
I would throw away my gear with "decent levels" on 55db for an Dynamic mic.

Anyways...
When the board and Mic are ok. It sound you use the wrong input.
As that would explain the "decent level on 55db"
How did you connect the mic to the Board ?
Remember if you use any TRS (1/4" / 6.3mm Jack) you will use a Line IN
that expect Line level.

Only the XLR connection will use the MIC Preamp.

I have a Studiolive 24 and Shure SM7b and a Cloudlifter. You are correct in that the mic pres are clean and strong enough to handle the mic w/o Cloudlifter. I use it anyway to have more gain if needed.

I have never needed a Cloudlifter with Series 3. I have also never needed 55 dB of gain for these mics either, so I find that very strange. Your source must be very quiet, in which case that mic is not suitable for that use.
