The Universal Audio SD-3 Microphone is a compact cardioid dynamic microphone for drum and instrument recording featuring Hemisphere mic modeling technology, high SPL tolerance, and included accessories.

Easily capture snare and tom drums, loud guitar cabs, brass, and more with SD-3 — a classic dynamic mic with high SPL handling, cardioid polar pattern, and best-in-class Hemisphere mic modeling giving you pro sound in any environment.

Record Through Five Workhorse Mics
SD-3 is powered by the same mic modeling technology found in Universal Audio’s award-winning UA Sphere microphones. With the included Hemisphere Mic Collection, it’s the only dynamic modeling mic that gives you the authentic sound of famous dynamics from Shure, Sennheiser, and Audix.*

A Modeling Mic That Works for You
SD-3 and the included Hemisphere Mic Collection plug-in work with or without UA hardware, and go way beyond subtle EQ curves to give you precise control over filter, proximity, and axis — an industry first. Just set up SD-3 and use the plug-in to find that “sweet spot” for a guitar cab, or tame harsh frequencies on a snare or tom drum.

Easily Capture Your Best Sounds
Universal Audio fine-tuned the cardioid polar pattern on SD-3 for a wide range of environments. Whether it's your bedroom, project, or pro studio — or even the stage — SD-3’s ultra-high SPL tolerance and exceptional isolation give you iconic "sit-in-the-mix" sounds heard on countless hits. Plus, its compact size lets you zone in for perfect mic placement in tight spaces.

Add a Pro Mic with Vintage Style
With all-metal construction, retro fit and finish, and hand-selected capsules, the SD-3 stands apart from other "workhorse dynamics" — giving you a trusted partner, perfect for capturing nearly any source.

Hemisphere Mic Modeling - Authentic Mic Modeling Made Simple
Universal Audio's new microphone modeling plugin, Hemisphere Mic Modeling is now available for free to anyone that owns a Universal Audio Standard Series microphone! The download will be free upon registration of your microphone. Since the SD-3 microphone is a neutral microphone for its type, it's a perfect blank canvas for microphone modeling so that you can audition and select between several models of famous studio microphones. With Hemisphere mic modeling, you'll be able to capture album-ready vocals and instruments with great character and musicality. The Hemisphere plugin allows you to shape the sound of your recordings using filters, proximity, and axis controls - even after tracking!
