RODE University off to a Great Start!
(Press Release | Posted 2008-03-19)
Only seven weeks after opening its doors, RØDE University has become an overwhelming success, with thousands of users attending the virtual campus to learn all about recording with RØDE Microphones. Since its launch on January 21st, rodeuniversity.com has held over 30,000 video classes to more than 5,000 students worldwide, proving that Rock n’ Roll certainly is an international language.
“We are really pleased with the reaction to RØDE Uni”commented Damien Wilson, Global Sales & Marketing Director of RØDE Microphones. “We felt there was a need to offer some practical understanding of mics and mic techniques to new and existing owners of RØDE. So far the results have been fantastic!”
Peter O’Donohue, manager of Billy Hyde’s Music in Sydney was officially the first student to graduate from RØDE University. Peter visited the RØDE Factory late last month to officially collect his RØDE University graduation certificate.
“I learnt a lot from the course” says Peter, “they managed to mirror many of my own ideals in regards to music capture being about empowerment not intimidation and snobbery.”
RØDE University is an online modular training program, presenting studio microphone basics and tips and techniques via high quality streaming video clips. For more information or to get started, simply visit www.rodeuniversity.com
