Overview

Get the sounds of the world's most famous mics.

The SC-1 is Universal Audio’s large-diaphragm condenser microphone for studio use that features extended dynamic range, low self noise, and Hemisphere mic modeling software. With the SC-1 microphone and Hemisphere mic modeling, you'll capture album-ready vocals and instruments with the authentic sound and character of the most popular studio mics ever made — all with a single pro-quality condenser.

Record Pro Vocals and Instruments

The SC-1 gives you classic condenser sound that’s perfect for vocals, acoustic guitar, strings, and even a loud guitar cab, thanks to its high SPL handling. Plus, its ultra-linear circuit and extended dynamic range ensure distortion-free results in both low and high frequencies, giving you smooth results, every time.

Authentic Mic Modeling Made Simple

Using the same award-winning tech as Universal Audio’s UA Sphere modeling microphones, the included Hemisphere mic modeling plug-in gives your studio the authentic sound of essential condensers from Neumann, Sony, AKG, and more — in real time with Apollo or natively in your DAW.* You can also shape the sound of your recordings using filter, proximity, and axis controls — even after tracking.

Enjoy a Studio Workhorse for Years to Come

With a sleek, modern design and rugged build quality, the SC-1 will give you decades of uncompromising recordings, no matter what you put in front of it.

*Hemisphere plug-in available upon product registration. Hemisphere for UAD and Apollo Realtime available early November 2023. All trademarks are property of their respective owners and used only to represent the microphones and sound treatment modeled as part of the Hemisphere software.
