The SC-1 is Universal Audio’s large-diaphragm condenser microphone for studio use that features extended dynamic range, low self noise, and Hemisphere mic modeling software. With the SC-1 microphone and Hemisphere mic modeling, you'll capture album-ready vocals and instruments with the authentic sound and character of the most popular studio mics ever made — all with a single pro-quality condenser.

Record Pro Vocals and Instruments

The SC-1 gives you classic condenser sound that’s perfect for vocals, acoustic guitar, strings, and even a loud guitar cab, thanks to its high SPL handling. Plus, its ultra-linear circuit and extended dynamic range ensure distortion-free results in both low and high frequencies, giving you smooth results, every time.

Authentic Mic Modeling Made Simple

Using the same award-winning tech as Universal Audio’s UA Sphere modeling microphones, the included Hemisphere mic modeling plug-in gives your studio the authentic sound of essential condensers from Neumann, Sony, AKG, and more — in real time with Apollo or natively in your DAW.* You can also shape the sound of your recordings using filter, proximity, and axis controls — even after tracking.

Enjoy a Studio Workhorse for Years to Come

With a sleek, modern design and rugged build quality, the SC-1 will give you decades of uncompromising recordings, no matter what you put in front of it.
