Setting a New Standard for Podcast Microphones
Record stellar vocals, podcast episodes, and more with Universal Audio’s SD-1 Standard Dynamic Microphone. UA’s flagship dynamic microphone, the SD-1, boasts a flat frequency response and captures a rich, natural sound that’s dynamite on close-miked vocals and instruments. Our team members have taken advantage of the SD-1’s cardioid polar pattern to participate in Zoom calls from home without any background noise bleeding through. This microphone also includes UA-designed Apollo Channel Strip Presets with settings for any source imaginable. Complete with its low-cut and articulation boost switches, the Universal Audio SD-1 Standard Dynamic Microphone makes it easier than ever to capture top-notch audio from any source.
Note: The Universal Audio SD-1 requires a Universal Audio Apollo audio interface to access Apollo Channel Strip Presets.
