“The iPhone and iPad are perfect platforms for RØDE University.” commented Damien Wilson, Global Marketing Director for RØDE Microphones
“From the very beginning we designed RØDE Uni to fit in with the lifestyle of our users by ensuring all the content was to-the-point and entertaining. Now the added convenience of being able to watch anywhere at any time, even without a data connection makes it really easy and simple to get your audio knowledge up-to-speed while on the train, waiting for a bus, or between classes”.
RØDE University was first launched in 2008, guiding viewers through the basics of recording audio via short videos, followed by a series of multiple choice questions to reiterate the key points of the lesson.
The instrument recording course teaches various ways to record a typical band including drums, vocals, guitars and bass. Across the 28 video segments users will learn key audio fundamentals, as well as discover a range of ways to mic instruments and vocals, with the pros and cons of each technique explained and discussed.
The RØDE Uni app is free and includes all the video content from both the musical and broadcast syllabus from RØDE’s website.
