    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.

    I asked him to mastering of the 80s discotheque song this time.
    He works fast and I'm satisfied with the result.

    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 :)

    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.

    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)

    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 Protoculture

  1. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  2. 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)

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. 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.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. 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.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. 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 :)

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. 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.
