DISCONTINUED! Replaced with Universal Audio DLX and LX modelling microphones!

The Sphere L22™ microphone system from Universal Audio models the characteristics of the most sought-after large-diaphragm condenser microphones with amazing accuracy and allows selection of different mics and patterns even after tracking.

The Sphere® system consists of a high precision dual-channel microphone, which when paired with the included Sphere plug-in (UAD, AAX DSP, AAX Native, VST, AU) accurately models the response of a wide range of mics, including transient response, harmonics, proximity effect and three-dimensional polar response.

Using a dual-capsule microphone with dual outputs makes it possible to more completely capture the soundfield—including the directional and distance information otherwise lost with a conventional single-channel microphone. This allows the Sphere® system to precisely reconstruct how different microphones respond to the soundfield.

In contrast, other virtual microphones apply EQ to filter the sound from what is essentially a conventional microphone. This is fundamentally no different from using EQ to process a recorded track.
