The Universal Audio SD-5 Microphone is a supercardioid dynamic microphone for kick drums and bass amps featuring Hemisphere mic modeling technology, high SPL tolerance, and included accessories.

Easily capture all the punch and heft of your kick drums, bass amps, and anything else where extended low-end is required. A classic dynamic mic with a supercardioid polar pattern, high SPL handling, and best-in-class Hemisphere mic modeling — SD-5 gives you pro sound, no matter where you record.

Record Through Five Workhorse Kick Mics
SD-5 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, Audix, and AKG.*

A Modeling Mic That Works for You
SD-5 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-5 and use the plug-in to quickly find that “sweet spot” for your kick drum or bass amp.

Easily Capture Your Best Bass Sounds
Universal Audio fine-tuned the supercardioid polar pattern on SD-5 for use on stage or in the studio. And with its ultra-high SPL capability and exceptional isolation, you’ll capture all the thump, tone, and transients in your instrument without bleed from other sources.

Add a Pro Mic with Vintage Style
With all-metal construction, retro styling, and hand-selected capsules, SD-5 gives you a trusted companion to reliably capture valuable low-end frequencies for decades of solid performance.

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-5 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!
