Capture your best, every time.

The SD-1 is Universal Audio’s flagship dynamic microphone for recording and live use, featuring a cardioid polar pattern, selectable low cut and articulation boost switches, and Apollo channel strip presets for instant pro sound. With the SD-1 Standard dynamic microphone, you can capture vocals, instruments, livestreams and podcasts like a pro, quickly giving you polished, broadcast-ready studio sound.

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 dynamic design that naturally rejects background noises like fans, refrigerators and noisy bandmates.

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.

Get the Sound of Classic Mics With Hemisphere

Using the same award-winning tech as their UA Sphere modeling microphones, the freeHemisphere mic modeling plug-in gives you the authentic sound of iconic dynamic mics from RCA, Sony, Sennheiser and more—in real time 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.

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.
