Dynamount X1-R: Two Axes with Rotation
Dynamount-Products are robotic microphone mounts that are remote-controlled via a free app. The X1-R is the top-of-the-line model featuring dual-axes of movement as well as rotation capabilities.
Control wirelessly from your iOS and Android devices or from your Windows/OSX computer using the Chrome app. The device can be controlled via WLAN (Wi-Fi) or USB.
The app enables you to store up to 6 different mic positions as recallable presets for each DynaMount that can be precisely returned to on command. You are also able to switch back and forth between controlling an infinite number of devices.
Since the X1-R is composed largely of high quality anodized aluminum, it is lightweight (4.2lbs) but very robust, and compact enough for a wide variety of uses. It is even possible to mount it vertically or upside-down (e.g. drum overheads).
An optional Accessory Pack includes a clutch for mounting the X1-R vertically, an approx. 0.5m right-angled XLR adaptor cable (angled (w) to straight plug), a ⅝" jam nut, and a ⅝" thread extender. The latter and the right-angled XLR adapter help with mics that have the outlet at the bottom (e.g. AKG C414 and Neumann U87).
