The Universal Audio SD-3 Standard dynamic microphone three-pack with Hemisphere modeling gives you a compact yet capable mic for recording instruments and percussion. It captures pro-level recordings in any studio thanks to hand-selected capsules and a cardioid polar pattern that rejects unwanted sounds. Hemisphere modeling provides the authentic tone of renowned mics from Shure, Audix and Sennheiser using the same technology as Universal Audio's award-winning modeling mics. Shape your sound even after recording using the included filter, proximity and axis controls.

Authentic Modeling for Versatile Tone

Hemisphere modeling gives you a range of tones to suit any instrument. The plug-in provides emulations of industry-standard dynamics from Shure, Audix and Sennheiser, which you can use in real time with Apollo interfaces or natively in your DAW. Adjust filter, proximity and axis settings to control the sound even after tracking. Hemisphere modeling makes the SD-3 an extremely flexible single microphone solution for recording.

Premium Components for Premium Sound

Hand-selected dynamic capsules give the SD-3 a balanced, musical sound with extended frequency response. They are specially chosen to handle high sound pressure levels without distortion for recording loud instruments. The cardioid pattern rejects sounds from the sides and rear, minimizing bleed from other sources. With premium components and thoughtful design, the SD-3 delivers professional-quality recordings in any environment.

Roadworthy and Stylish

Despite its sophisticated electronics, the SD-3 is built to handle life on the road. Its rugged all-metal chassis protects the capsule and internal components from damage. And with its mesh grill, ergonomic design and sleek finish, the SD-3 brings a touch of style to any mic locker. The three-pack provides mics for a drum kit, backup mics or allows three musicians to record at once. For pristine recordings wherever inspiration strikes, the SD-3 Standard dynamic is your essential microphone.
