      A Modeling Mic That Works for You

      SD-7 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 SD-7 and use the plug-in to quickly find that “sweet spot” for a guitar amp, or make horns pop through the mix.





      Discover Your Best Sounds

      From a rowdy stage to a quiet studio, SD-7’s ultra-high SPL capability makes it a perfect choice for loud, transient-rich sources. And thanks to its hypercardioid polar pattern, you're able to back the mic away for added "air" without sacrificing isolation.





      Add a Pro Mic with Vintage Style

      With rugged all-metal construction, cool retro look, and hand-selected capsules, SD-7 gives you a trusted companion, reliably capturing your sources for a lifetime of professional performance.



      Included Hemisphere Mic Models

      RB-160

      RB-160

      This model is based on a vintage 1960’s ribbon microphone with rich mid-forward character — notably used on famous rock recordings, from Jimi Hendrix’s screaming guitar amp to a pair used to record drums for "When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin.**

      DN-409N

      DN-409N

      Based on the earliest version in the 409 line of microphones. This vintage version has slightly more coloration than current production models, making it useful on a variety of sources including electric guitar and vocals. Notable uses of the 409 include vocals for Pink Floyd's Live at Pompeii concert video.**

      DN-421B

      DN-421B

      Based on a modern 421, which has a slightly brighter and harder sound than earlier iterations — this is likely the most famous tom mic of all time, and is also no slouch on kick drum or brass instruments.

      DN-421S

      DN-421S

      Based on a rare early 421 with script logo, this model has slightly more vintage character, making it useful for warming up your guitar amplifiers, drums, or even vocals.

      DN-441

      DN-441

      The classic 441 has been used on countless records, from Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty to Tame Impala. Many engineers and artists have relied on this model for its balanced and natural sound on vocals, snare drums, and guitar amps.**
