Universal Audios SD-1 is a cardioid dynamic microphone for vocal and instrument recording featuring Hemisphere mic modeling technology, low cut and articulation switches, and included accessories.

Get natural-sounding vocal and instrument recordings with Universal Audios SD-1, a classic dynamic mic with flat frequency response and onboard tone-shaping. With its cardioid polar pattern and best-in-class Hemisphere mic modeling, SD-1 gives you pro results, no matter where you record.

• Harness the authentic sound of the most popular microphones ever made with Hemisphere mic modeling technology
• Get pristine recordings of vocals or instruments in any environment, from pro rooms to home studios
• Craft your perfect sound with ease using selectable low-cut filters and enhanced articulation boost to make vocals and instruments stand out

Record Through Five Famous Mics
SD-1 is powered by the same mic modeling technology found in Universal Audios award-winning UA Sphere microphones. With the included Hemisphere Mic Collection, its the only dynamic modeling mic that gives you the authentic sound of famous vocal and instrument mics from RCA, Sony, Sennheiser, and more.•

A Modeling Mic That Works for You
SD-1 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-1 and use the plug-in to find that sweet spot for vocals, or tame harsh frequencies on your instrument.

Get Natural Vocals in Any Environment
Universal Audio fine-tuned the cardioid polar pattern on SD-1 to easily reject background noises like fans, refrigerators, or noisy bandmates. So whether your setup is in a bedroom, rehearsal space, or pro studio your close-miked speech and vocals will naturally pop through the mix, no muss no fuss.

Tailor Your Tone
The filter switches on SD-1 let you easily reduce low-end rumble for cleaner recordings, or add some presence to any source. And if you own an Apollo audio interface, you can audition and record through different mic models in realtime, plus use custom channel strip presets to get album-ready sound right out of the box.

Deck Out a Desktop Studio
SD-1s sleek design and rear-mounted XLR jack make clean cable runs a breeze. And its built-in shockmount and windscreen will make your music recording, podcasts, livestreams, or Zoom meetings sound automatically cleaner.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
