In 2016 Peter Freedman AM, founder and CEO of RØDE Microphones spoke at an AES Melbourne Section meeting about Microphone Manufacturing in Australia.
His talk ended up being a fascinating retelling of his personal journey in audio up to that time – a journey that continues to this day.
Peter has created a world-class microphone and related-audio manufacturing company in Sydney where products are made and exported to the world.
RØDE products are known and respected internationally across a range of audio segments including recording studios, broadcasters, videographers, and podcasters.
Peter has revitalized audio manufacturing in Australia with his emphasis on tooling for cost-effective local manufacturing to offer innovative products at a keen price.
Here is the video of that talk.
