      A Modeling Mic That Works for You

      SC-1 and the included Hemisphere Mic Collection software 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 SC-1 in front of your source and use the plug-in to quickly tame sibilance, find that “sweet spot” for vocals, or control harsh frequencies on a guitar amp.

      Your Go-To for Vocals & Instruments

      SC-1 gives you classic condenser sound that’s perfect for vocals, acoustic guitar, strings, and even drums 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.

      Enjoy a Studio Workhorse for Years to Come

      With a sleek, modern design and rugged build quality, SC-1 will give you decades of uncompromising recordings, no matter what you put in front of it. Simply supply phantom power, and hear your vocals and instruments come to life in stunning detail.

      Included Hemisphere Mic Models



      With its gorgeous top-end sparkle, this iconic '50s mic is often used for lush, breathy vocals. Its sound has elevated amazing performances from Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder to Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, and many others. It is also commonly used for piano and drum overheads.**



      The classic 47-style mic is the ultimate studio workhorse. Its thick “sit in the mix” sound has been used by everyone from The Beatles and Frank Sinatra to countless modern artists. A go-to choice for vocals, this mic sounds equally amazing on acoustic guitars, bass, and drums.**

      LD-67 NOS

      LD-67 NOS

      This coveted mic was famously used for lead vocals on classics like “Hey Jude” and "Sympathy for the Devil” along with Nirvana’s Nevermind album. Our model is based on a custom 67 mic using new-old-stock parts offering a smooth and musical sound, useful on almost anything.**

      LD-87 Vintage

      LD-87 Vintage

      A mid-'70s solid-state mic that would come to define the midrange-forward sound of 80’s pop vocals. We modeled the low-cut and pad, giving you the ability to tailor the mic’s response to your source and environment.



      Now a classic in its own right, this modern cardioid condenser has been used by artists such as Billie Eilish, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer, and many more. With a presence peak in the 8 to 12 kHz range, it sounds great on everything from pop vocals and acoustic guitars to whispery ASMR recordings.**



      Built upon the coveted CK12 brass capsule and 6072 tube, the 251 is widely considered one of the greatest mics ever made. Its huge, smooth sound has allowed artists from Dolly Parton to Celine Dion to capture incredible vocal recordings for decades.**

      LD-414 US

      LD-414 US

      This nylon capsule condenser delivers clear, transparent sound. One of the greatest “all around” mics ever made, it excels at everything from intimate vocals and voice overs to high-impact toms and percussion.



      Few modern condensers have been so widely used in commercial Pop, Hip-Hop, and R&B. The 800’s silky smooth character and super open, transparent sound have been employed by modern greats such as Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Dr. Dre, Eminem, and more.**
