At the 2015 Summer NAMM Show, DynaMount introduced their Robotic Mic Mount – a new WiFi-controlled system that promises to bring robotics to the recording studio.
in this video, DynaMount CEO Jon Russo introduces and demonstrates their new Robotic Mic Mount, which lets you remotely accurately and repeatably position microphones in the studio.
The DynaMount is being developed via a Kickstarter project, which raised over $45,000. Here’s the intro video for their Kickstarter campaign:
The DynaMount is available for pre-order in several different configurations, priced starting at US $249.

Damn, that is a ridiculously good idea. Interns rejoice.
i love the concept- but is it silent/quiet?
I can imagine Dynamount servo sounds (intentionally) ending up in many a record if not!
i’d have one though.
It’s quiet – but you probably would not want to move the mic while recording.
These are to reposition your mikes ate the exact same spot when switching out amps etc to avoid having to find the sweet spot over and over again.
I don’t know why you would move the mike mid recording.
You can get very interesting, hard to reproduce in any other way, tremolo style effects by moving a mic around in front of a guitar amp.

Since every amp ever has its own sweet spot, I think these will primarily be used to find the sweet spot from the control room. The back and forth of finding it can be brutal (especially without a third person involved moving the mic + talk back). Then, you find it but the third person moved past it and you take another 30 minutes trying to find it again. Then! the mic stand drops or tilts a little.
For a dufus like me (recording at home with two amps) spending 500 bucks for this doesn’t make any sense. But for a ‘proper’ studio where time is money and they see new amps every day/week, this is probably the best 500 they’ll spend all year.
This is brilliant. F$&@ing brilliant.
very cool very very cool
while this is a very cool idea…it is very far from new.
first time i saw this was years ago in an interview with the guy from rammstein.
glad to see it’s finally coming to market.
Richard Kruspe of rammstein was doing this back in 2010.
check it out here around the 3:00 mark…
so excited this is going to be a consumer product!
Cool, finally a product everyone can buy!
I saw this in a Video from Eric Vaneltine:
