Get pro stereo recordings with Hemisphere mic modeling.
With the SP-1 Standard Pencil Microphone Pair and Hemisphere mic modeling software, you can record acoustic instruments, drums and percussion, and live performances in stereo, with pristine fidelity for instant album-quality sound.
Get Album-Ready Stereo Sound
As a matched stereo pair, SP‑1s add clarity, width, and dimension to your recordings. Whether it’s tight X/Y patterns or spaced pairs, combine them how you want and hear the detail in your instrument like never before.
Authentic Mic Modeling Made Simple
Using the same award-winning tech as our UA Sphere modeling microphones, the free Hemisphere mic modeling plug-in gives you the authentic sound of iconic mics from AKG and Neumann — in realtime with Apollo or natively in your DAW.* You can also shape the sound of your recordings using filter, proximity effect, and axis controls — even after tracking.
Capture Your Best Recordings, Anywhere
The SP-1’s classic cardioid design, high SPL tolerance, and smooth, clear top-end deliver consistently clean capture of acoustic guitars, drum overheads, percussion, horns, and more — at any volume, in any environment.
Find Your Sound, with Style
We engineered the SP-1 pair to be your everyday choice for stereo recording. With a retro finish and road‑worthy build, these stylish condensers are a serious studio upgrade, with vintage elegance for days.
