Universal Audio SD-1 Standard Dynamic Microphone

The SD-1 dynamic microphone enables you to record vocals, instruments, livestreams, and podcasts like a pro, delivering polished studio sound that is ready for broadcast in no time

Product Description

UA’s new entry into the dynamic mic market, the Universal Audio SD-1 Standard Dynamic Microphone, combines a neutral frequency response with versatile EQ switches that make it easy to dial-in professional, broadcast-ready sound. With a wide, flat frequency response, the UA SD-1 captures a variety of sources brilliantly in both studio and live situations. Tailor-made for close-miking speech and vocals, SD-1 features a simple dynamic design that naturally rejects unwanted background noises, such as fans, refrigerators, and noisy bandmates.

Built-in EQ switches come standard, allowing users to shape their sound on the way in. The onboard low-cut filter reduces unwanted rumble and mud below 200 Hz, while the articulation boost applies a smooth presence boost in the 3-5 kHz range for added detail and clarity. Plus, when recording with an Apollo audio interface, you can instantly enhance your tracks using custom Apollo Channel Strip Presets, offering radio-ready EQ and compression settings for vocals, guitars and more.

Equipped with an internal shock-mount and built-in windscreen, SD-1 automatically reduces plosives and handling noise for a cleaner, clearer sound, making it a versatile miking option in any setting—even in less than ideal tracking environments. Plus, with a sleek modern design and rear-mounted XLR jack for easy cable runs, the SD-1 looks great on any desktop, making it the perfect solution for podcasts, livestreams and Zoom meetings, too. One session with the SD-1, and it becomes clear that the folks at Universal Audio have delivered an incredibly flexible dynamic microphone.

  • Get natural-sounding recordings with SD-1’s flat, wide-range frequency response

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
