Wednesday March 9th 2011, Sydney Australia — RØDE Microphones is extremely happy to announce the launch of its new online video portal, RØDE TV (www.rodetv.com). Much more than a simple collection of corporate videos, RØDE has invested hundreds of hours carefully creating original programs of the highest quality for music and audio enthusiasts to enjoy, completely free.
Comprised of six distinct channels that are selectable by a virtual “remote control”, the team at RØDE Microphones have assembled a line up of programs that they themselves would want to watch and be a part of. “RØDE TV really is what we are all about here at RØDE – it’s what we live and breathe as both a pro-audio company and a collection of individuals with shared interests” commented Peter Freedman, founder and president of RØDE Microphones. “Since early childhood my life and passion has been audio. RØDE TV is giving both myself and the wider RØDE family a voice to share that passion with the world.”
In Studio Rescue Grammy Award winning engineer Francis Buckley plays DIY guru to a collection of home studio owners who just can’t get the sound they’re after. Many viewers will instantly recognise the problems that Francis comes up against, dealing with the compromise of recording in an environment that isn’t purpose built. Thankfully he’s more than willing to share his wealth of knowledge to get the best results out of these troubled studios. An initial twelve episodes of the show are already available, and RØDE are taking applications for future episodes from all around the world at www.rodemic.com/studiorescue.
RØDE president Peter Freedman gets to meet and speak candidly with some of the people that have shaped the audio industry in Interview with a Legend. Get an intimate view of such incredible minds as Alan Parsons and the late Les Paul amongst others.
The who’s who of Hollywood sound design are featured in RØDE Rage, as RØDE University presenter and best-selling author Ric Viers sits down to chat with a range of personalities from film, television and video gaming.
