Key Info

Tap into the sound of the greatest mics ever created with the Sphere DLX.

38 iconic microphones in one - with stereo recording!

Tap into the sound of the greatest mics ever created with the Sphere DLX. With 38 seminal microphone models to browse through; the Sphere DLX is a full microphone locker in a single unit. Employing cutting-edge mic modeling technology, Universal Audio has managed to faithfully recreate the sound of the most legendary microphones ever made. Building on the design of its sibling (Sphere LX), the DLX allows you to record strings, horns, acoustic guitars and other sound sources in stereo using just the DLX; all thanks to its dual-output design.

This game-changing feature eliminates the need for buying a stereo microphone, allowing you to capture stereo sources without the need for any external gear. Spanning everything from classic ribbon microphones to iconic dynamic mics; the Sphere DLX has something for everyone. Recreate the sound of revered artists such as The Beatles and Radiohead using the variety of mic models on offer.

Find the sound to suit you – before or after recording

One of the most unique and sought-after features of the Sphere DLX is the ability to audition mic models before or after recording. You can audition the various models when recording with your chosen interface so you can find the right sound for you. You can also switch between mic types, polar patterns and other tonal characteristics even after you're done recording. This allows you to hear the effect that differing mic models have on your performance and make an informed decision when it comes to mixing and mastering.

Dual Mode – find the perfect pairing

For more dynamic sources such as guitar cabinets or drums; it’s a good idea to use multiple microphones to recreate the tone and power of your sound source. Using 'Dual Mode' you can blend the sound of the two mono microphones to get rich-sound mic combinations. The microphone itself features a dual-output design with gold-sputtered diaphragms resulting in ultra-low-noise performance (best in its class). From recording vocals/instruments to voiceover work and podcasting; the Sphere DLX is the ultimate microphone for versatility.

IsoSphere optimises your sound

A great tool for home/studio recording; IsoSphere provides a wide variety of pro-grade presets designed for room correction and attenuation to achieve the cleanest possible results. When recording at home, many artists/engineers will use some form of an isolation filter attached to the mic stand. IsoSphere optimises how the Sphere DLX works with your setup by reducing reflections and background noise by modifying the frequency response to compensate for unwanted colouration.

Sleek design complete with everything you need to record

Employing years of expertise, research and development in the audio world; Universal Audio has utilised the finest components when creating the Sphere DLX to ensure the best possible audio performance. The onboard pad control features two settings that allow you to attenuate the microphone to suit various sound sources. The sleek and stylish design features a built-in metal grille that protects the internal components including the capsule. The DLX microphone also comes complete with premium-grade accessories, providing everything you need to get recording straight out of the box including a 25-foot cable, a robust carrying case, a shock mount and a mic stand mount.
