Universal Audio releases SD‑3, SD‑5, and SD‑7 Drum & Instrument Microphones

-
Universal Audio

Universal Audio has introduced three new microphones in their Standard Series line-up — the SD‑3, SD‑5, and SD‑7 Dynamic Microphones with Hemisphere Modeling, designed to easily capture drums and instruments.

Here's what they say:

Joining the award‑winning UA Sphere and handmade UA Bock microphones, Universal Audio continues to bring world-class sound and timeless design to the microphone market with the expansion of the Standard Series.

Key features include classic cardioid (SD‑3), supercardioid (SD‑5), and hypercardioid (SD‑7) designs, ultra‑high SPL tolerance, and exceptional isolation. Additionally, each microphone is built with UA's professional reliability, rugged all‑metal construction and stylish craftsmanship.

Standing out as extraordinary recording microphones on their own, all Standard Series models come with Hemisphere mic modeling software for Apollo DSP and Native for Mac / Windows.

The Hemisphere Mic Collection enables music creators to select from 32 classic dynamic, condenser, and ribbon mic tones across six unique microphones in realtime, while also offering the ability to adjust powerful attributes like the mic's filter, proximity effect, and off‑axis response before and after recording — featuring a level of control that would be impossible with traditional microphones.
