Get Pro Vocals, Anywhere
The SD-1 delivers studio-grade sound and style, no matter where you record. It’s tailor-made for close-miked speech and vocals, with a simple cardioid design that naturally rejects background noises like fans, refrigerators, and noisy bandmates.

Get the Sound of Classic Mics with Hemisphere
Using the same award-winning tech as our UA Sphere modeling microphones, the free Hemisphere mic modeling plug-in gives you the authentic sound of iconic dynamic mics from RCA, Sony, Sennheiser, and more — in realtime with Apollo or natively in your DAW.* You can also shape the sound of your recordings using filter, proximity effect, and axis controls — even after tracking.

Shape your Sound with Quick Controls
Reduce rumble and mud from recordings with the SD-1’s selectable low cut filter. And with its enhanced articulation boost, vocals and instruments will instantly stand out with added presence.

Deck Out your Desktop Studio
With a sleek modern design and rear-mounted XLR jack for easy cable runs, the SD-1 will instantly level-up your production space. Whether it’s music, podcasts, livestreams, or Zoom meetings, your new go-to home studio mic has arrived.

Capture your Best Recordings Yet
The SD-1 features an internal shockmount and built-in windscreen, meaning your recordings and livestreams will automatically sound cleaner, with less handling noise and breath sound.
