What’s a Superhet?


Good question. If you look up the word ‘heterodyne’ you’ll probably happen upon a description like this:


“Heterodyning is a radio signal processing technique… in which new frequencies are created by combining or mixing two frequencies.”

Combining frequencies, sounds familiar; something which we all do when we make music. We like to think that we act as that ‘device’ which makes combining musical ideas successful and fun. 

It turns out there is a device called a superheterodyne receiver, or superhet for short. It uses frequency mixing (or heterodyning) and, well, it isn’t a giant leap of logic after that.

We comprise a producer, an assistant and a world class tech. We are musicians and audio geeks, we are a music production company: Superhet.
