Universal Audio SD-1 Standard Dynamic Microphone
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
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.
