With the included Hemisphere Mic Collection, this large diaphragm condenser gives you the authentic sound of eight legendary studio mics — including classics from Neumann, Telefunken, AKG, and more.*

    Included Hemisphere Mic Models


    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

    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. Universal Audio’s 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

    A mid-'70s solid-state mic that would come to define the midrange-forward sound of 80's pop vocals. Universal Audio 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.**


    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.**


    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

    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.**
