Product description

Dynamic instrument microphone, narrow kidney directional characteristic, for big drum, floor toms, bass instruments and basses, rated for high sound pressure, Hemisphere modelling software - emulation of iconic microphones, microphone holder with tilt adjustment, thread adapter, storage protective case

TheSD-5 is a compact dynamic microphone with a narrow kidney (supercardioid) directional characteristic. It is rated for high SPL sound pressure, making it ideal for capturing large drum, floor tom, percussion, brass and bass instruments. The SD-5 is excellent for live sound reinforcement and studio applications. With Hemisphere modeling software, you can faithfully model iconic dynamic microphones in your DAW; both during recording and in post-production. The microphone includes a positionable mount with ⅝" to ⅜" thread adapter. The microphone can be stored or transported in a storage case.

With the SD-5 dynamic microphone, you can capture drums, big drum, floor toms, precussion, wind instruments and basses. It is suitable for live sound as well as for recording in studios, on theatre stages, installations and other applications. The SD-5 microphone has high directivity in the pickup axis, making it ideal where ambient noise or crosstalk from secondary instruments and sounds needs to be suppressed. It is rated for high SPL sound pressure, so it is well suited for contact sensing of very loud sound sources. It will faithfully reproduce the sound of drums, big drum, floor toms, percussion, brass and bass instruments.

With the Hemisphere modeling plug-in, you can get the sound of iconic microphones and the color of studio-quality instruments. You'll benefit from the authentic sound of the most popular microphones ever made.

Modeling microphones with Hemisphere
Your microphone can take advantage of the Hemisphere* modeling plug-in, which is freely downloadable. This will give you the sound of legendary iconic and standard microphones from world-class manufacturers. See below for more details on Hemisphere*

Info: The Hemisphere plug-in is available by registering your product on the Universal Audio website.

The following microphone models are available for the SD-5:

  • DN-12A
    based on a popular 1950s dynamic microphone from an established Austrian brand. You can hear it on recordings by Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, and Radiohead, where it was often used with the 421 model for the big drum sound.
  • DN-112
    the successor to the previous microphone of the same brand is considered the industry standard. Used on countless hip hop and rock recordings, it features extended low frequency pickup with emphasized upper mids for that particular hard hitting big drum beater attack.
  • DN-6
    is based on an American microphone for big drum and bass instruments that became a mainstay for studio recording. With deep bass and heavily overdriven upper mids and highs, it is especially suited for the thick undersides of metal genres.
  • DN-52
    emulates the current American brand model for the big drum. It is based on the standard kick drum microphone. This model provides extended low frequency pickup and an overall balanced sound usable for almost any kick or bass instrument.
  • DN-SUB
    is based on a studio tweak that uses a speaker for extended low frequency pickup of bass instruments. Many sound engineers combine this sound along with a traditional microphone to add the thick full sound of a large drum or bass instrument.
