Universal Audio, a worldwide leader in audio production tools — including Apollo and Volt audio interfaces, UAD plugins, UA mics, and UAFX guitar products — is proud to announce that the UA Sphere DLX and Sphere LX microphones are now shipping worldwide. UA Sphere mics allow users to change mic type, polar pattern, and other characteristics even after tracking. Each UA Sphere condenser features models of classic mics from Neumann, Telefunken, AKG, Sony, and more, with Dual Mode for blended mic combinations, Realtime UAD Processing for low-latency recording with Apollo interfaces, and included presets for getting pro sound quickly.

Alongside the launch of the Standard Series and UA Bock microphones, UA also brought on modelling guru Chris Townsend to align UA’s market-leading UAD plugin platform with an all-new class of digital modelling microphones. “With our expertise in analog modelling for our UAD plugin platform and Chris’ pedigree in capturing the sound of sought-after vintage studio mics, we knew we were on to something special,” said Bill Putnam Jr., CEO/Founder of Universal Audio. “With the addition of new UA Sphere models to our mic line, we can inspire even more creators with legendary sound.”

The UA Sphere DLX features emulations of 38 classic studio mics, while the UA Sphere LX offers 20 mic models in a smaller package. Each features IsoSphere technology for reducing room coloration, along with gold-sputtered diaphragms and the lowest noise of any mic in its respective class.
