Robot microphone stand
I know there's been a couple of threads on this subject before but i'm actually trying to build one of these sucka's at present. It's for a college project but if it works it's something i might try to put into production in the future.
Basically it's quite self descriptive, it's a microphone stand that can be positioned from the control room. I'm also trying to design this so it will be as low cost as possible.
My question is how to control the robot? There's a couple of different methods that could be used to have wireless control but none that really fits well to an application like this (low cost, low data, medium to high range, daw compatible).
What im thinking of doing is controlling the robot over another mic cable carrying DTMF tones (telephone dial tones). I think this is the most simple approach and would allow easy interfacing with a DAW. Anybody got any thoughts on the subject, would you be happy to use a product like this controlled by mic cable from an audio out in your studio?
