スエーデンからオーストラリアへ移住したHenryとAstrid Freedmanによって、1967年にFreedman Electronicsが開店されました。 オーストラリア国内で誕生して間もないオーディオ産業の中、Freedman Electronics はラウドスピーカー、アンプ、カスタムメイドの電子機器ならびに変わったマイクの扱いのエキスパートとして、瞬く間に業界を担うリーダーとなりました。 Freedman Electronicsはまた、オーストラリアで名声を得ていたDynacordコンソールを取り扱う国内初の会社となる傍ら、Henryはうら若きTom Jonesの1968年のオーストラリア・ツアーの下準備に取り組んでいました。

ホームレコーディングを楽しむ愛好家を対象にした機器の技術的進歩と、比較的求め安い価格により、1990年代には需要がピークを迎え、低コスト、高品質なマイクが市場で求められるようになりました。中国より仕入れたマイクをオーストラリアの市場でテストした後、Henryの息子Peter FreedmanとRØDEはオーストラリア国内でマイクを設計、組立、製造するための基礎構造の作成に取りかかりました。時を経ずして、 設計、組立、製造全てをオーストラリア国内で手がけたNT2の生産ラインが稼働し、RØDEがどのように世界中の至る所で日常的に人々が行なうオーディオ録音を変えていったかを示す驚くべき軌跡が始まりました。
Unlike most competitors, precision metal machining is performed in-house at RØDE, guaranteeing quality and efficiency.




On-camera Dominance

Early in the 2000s, Peter created an on-camera microphone so he could get decent audio of his son’s rugby matches. The RØDE VideoMic became a bestseller in 2008 as DSLR cameras became capable of producing cinema-quality video.

RØDE’s extensive range of on-camera microphones and accessories are the number one microphones in the category in the world. Like the NT2 in the early 1990s, this was another example of RØDE making professional quality audio products available to a new generation of creators.


50 Years!

From its humble beginning as a storefront in 1967, Freedman Electronics has become the home to four powerhouse pro audio brands: Aphex, Event Electronics, SoundField and, of course, RØDE Microphones.

Across music recording and performance, broadcast, filmmaking, newsgathering and wireless, RØDE has become the go-to microphone and, along the way, a global powerhouse in pro audio.

Over the years RØDE has been recognised as an industry leader in design and business, earning numerous Red Dot awards, Australian International Design awards and the Australian Manufacturing Exporter of the year for 2013.

In February 2017, the Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, visited the Silverwater campus and paid homage to RØDE’s success and anniversary, saying, “RØDE Microphones are legend… they are the best in the world. It’s an extraordinary story.”

To celebrate the milestone, RØDE produced the commemorative book, RØDE TRIP Street Side to Worldwide: Inside 50 Years of Freedman Electronics and RØDE Microphones.


RØDE will continue to innovate, to create new products and categories, to improve production and service, and, ultimately, to inspire millions to realise their creative vision with cutting edge, precision-quality, accessible microphones and accessories.
