Rode Microphones announces a new avenue for the company with RodeTest. With the first step of this foray being The Freedman Group’s acquisition of acoustic measurement software FuzzMeasure, RodeTest will become home to a range of professional acoustic measurement microphones, software and accessories in the near future.
For more than a decade, FuzzMeasure has determined the audio performance of studios, live venues, performance spaces, reverbs, microphones and more, converting detailed acoustic data to useful, easily understood graphics.
The acquisition of FuzzMeasure is the foundation move for RodeTest. “The scientific instruments we are developing for RodeTest are the perfect accompaniment to our monumentally successful ranges of studio, live and broadcast microphones,” says Rode Founder and Chairman, Peter Freedman AM. “We plan to shake the test and measurement industry up – as is the Rode way.”
RodeTest will open new markets for quality measuring microphones, says CEO Damien Wilson. “Rode has always created new consumer pathways by applying Rode’s precision, low-cost manufacturing capability. RodeTest is an exciting development in our business and another example of our desire to be the voice — and choice — of today’s creative generation.”
FuzzMeasure Chief Developer, Chris Liscio, will continue to work with RodeTest, developing software updates and innovations. “I was very excited when Rode first shared with me the plan to enter the acoustic measurement field and make FuzzMeasure the software for the RodeTest range. I look forward to seeing how it evolves under Rode’s stewardship.”
RodeTest microphones, interfaces, software and kits are in development now and will be released later in 2018. Meanwhile, to celebrate the launch of RodeTest and acquisition of FuzzMeasure, Rode is reducing the price of a Personal Licence and first year subscription to a Commercial Licence by 20% and extending all existing Commercial Licence subscriptions by a complimentary 12 months.
