Very good and detailed feedback! Also Nate is very kind and helpful!
Definitely would do it again! Highly recommended!!
Nate is not only one of the best producers in the world, but also an absolute pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond for me on my project, I couldn't be happier.
Superb mix and master! Nate is such a nice guy to work with, very professional and with flawless skills
2nd time returning to Nate with Progressive House/Trance tracks, and as always, fantastic job tailoring the mastering to the genre and style/instrumentation of each track.
In the process, also gave me advice on the mix for one of the more sonically complex tracks which was very helpful in bringing out the punchy-ness, clarity and energy in preparation for the mastering.
Great communication with Nate and prompt delivery of the track. I would definitely recommend and work with again. He nailed it first try, he’s the engineer and remixer I’ve been looking for. First class!
Recently got my EP mastered by Nate.
I was extremely happy with the turnover time and the results, showing me a new love for the tracks.
Nate stayed true to the original mixes and subtly enhanced them where required, bringing out the energy it needed, removing all doubts I had prior to his masters.
Will definitely be a returning/loyal client.
Working with Nate was great.
Amazing producer! I highly recommend him.
He delivered a professional remix and mastered track in a timely matter.
I'll come back for more later :)
Nate is a beast! He was an amazing engineer and very patient with me. I'll be returning to him once the other tracks are finished!
I asked him to mastering of the 80s discotheque song this time.
He works fast and I'm satisfied with the result.
A++ Spent extra time making sure I was satisfied with the end result. Would recommend!
Great working with Nate again!
Nate provided outstanding service and responsiveness. He's willing to go the extra mile and will happily answer any technical questions you might have. His reputation as Protoculture speaks for itself - hire him and you won't be let down!
Another awesome project done with Nate! Great to work with!
Nate is one of the world's elite Trance producers/engineers. He mastered my tune to be much louder, brighter, and punchier than I could. He provided a very quick turn around and was really easy to communicate with :)
It is always a pleasure working with Nate. He is extremely talented, a great communicator, and very diligent when it comes to due dates and turn around time. Highly recommended.
I highly recommend Nate. His work speaks for itself. He knew exactly what was needed to add some extra polish to my mix and delivered an outstanding master. Not only is he an superb engineer, but his communication is top notch and his turn around time is unbeatable. 5 stars.
Fantastic work! I'm very satisfied of the result!!
The track has great balance, there's more clearness and the subs are sounding more subtle... Top notch!
Working with Nate was a awesome experience! Nate did a great job mastering my tracks and they sound fantastic! Worth every penny.
Nate has done a fantastic job with my music. The track sounds perfect, much better than I thought it could. Also gave me great advice, and easy to communicate. I look forward to working together on future tracks.
Thank you, Nate. Roelof (Roolf Sonic)
amazing job again, the man to go if it comes to trance music, its a pleasure to work with him.
Nate is one of the big ones, nice to have him here. He is a god when it comes to Trance Music, awesome producer, but i dont think i have to tell you this.
Will work with him a lot in the future, he's very friendly and helpfull.
I choose the engineer according to the project. This time, my project was Bpm140 's vocal trance.
Nate gave me an appropriate proposal for my project and my request. Thanks to him my songs work on the dance floor!
Interview with Nate Raubenheimer
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Predominantly mixing and mastering work to help clients add that professional polish to their mixes. I'm also extremely versatile, especially when writing dance music and have completed a number of tracks for clients which have gone on to be signed with major labels. I'm also a sound designer, most recently being commissioned to design presets for Sonic Academy's ANA 2 Synthesiser.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I always list BT as one of my biggest influences... not only do I love the music, he's also an extremely talented producer as well as a serious tech head and gear nerd :)
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work mainly ITB these days having sold off a lot of my outboard. With my tour schedule it pays to be able to go mobile with the studio set up hence most work gets done on my MacBook under Cubase Pro 9.5. My primary tools for mixing consist of Plugin Alliance, Sound Toys, Slate and Eventide plugins.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been working in the industry as a producer and performing artist since 2002 after completing studies in Audio Engineering. I've toured extensively internationally over the past 16 years and released well over a 100 singles and 4 albums in that time.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Herman Miller Aeron chair (no seriously, I spend hours sitting in this thing, its literally my favourite piece of 'gear' in the studio), a pair of Genelec 8040a's (I've worked on genius for 16 years and know them inside out), Black Box Designs HG-2 (Makes everything sound fantastic, seriously), my trusty MacBook running Cubase, Sound Toys Echoboy (I think this is the best delay plugin ever made... I use it in every project)
