get some new drums
No lie, this shit is actually crazy. As far as a Dre mix, can't get one from home. You gon need a real engineer for that.
step ur drum programming up, a dre mix cant fix that.
Dre is also is in studios with a bunch of effects professors and limiters and the most exspensive mixing boards..
Limiters. .compressors.. 20 000 dollar monitoring systems..
he has help
some of you people are crazy, the beat is fire, and the mix is straight. yeah it ain't a dre mix but it still sounds good as an instrumental
you are in the worng place asking for dre like mixes
Dr. Dre is only as good as those interns he got behind the boards...Once they get too old, he just go get more. It's a vicious cycle.
Im From Cali And Im Not Really Tryin To Emulate Dre Thats Just Our Styl Out Hear I Only Named It Dr DRE Beat On Soundclick To Get It Up ThE Charts And DrEs Got One Of The Best Mixes In The Game So Why Not Try To Figure Out Some Ways To Get My Track Even A Little Bit Closer To That Lol You Act Like Im Swagger Jackin A Mix I Was Just Asking With Regard To Does He Pan Alot Of Things?what Does He Make Mono? I Was Just Trying To Step My Mix Game Up A Lil And By The Way I Dont Just Use Fl I Have A Mpc 2000xl And Motif 8 And A Grip Of Sound Modules I Like To Use Fl To Program Drums Then Track Em In To Pro Tools And To Dion Can I Use The Dimond Bundle If I Have Pro Tools M Powered And All Pro Tools Updates Beause I Heard You Can Only Use Pirated Software On Like Didgi 01 Or Older Versions Of Pt If Not Im Intrsted And Phoenix Good Look Fam Im Sendin It Tommarow Morning At Least You Willin To Help Someone If You Need Anything Dont Hesetate To Ask !
That mix is not straight. The beat as a whole is fire, but that mix is not straight. I read an article from Dre and he said he doesn't use a lot of EQ's, just the ones that are on the SSL.
u need to pan these instruments.......everything is sittin in the middle......that'll get ur mix right.......
yea everything in the middle doesnt give each instrument room to breath...
certain isntruments need different mixing depending on the beat and the sounds u use..
Everything at 0 DB smack in the middle is gonna make ur mix really muddy..
every producer in the game has been trying to figure out how to get dre like mixes lol
u need excellent sounds for melodies (or live orchestras)...sick ass drums programmed and leveled right..the proper panning..proper amounts of reverb and delay when needed...and the right compression..
mix that all into one..done to perfection..and u have a dre beat...hell probably other shit too lol.
I'm actually paying more attention to mixing and using dre as a reference..its very hard to get even close to how much his shit bangs.
as a matter of fact while we're on this topic..someone check this shit
that snippet up there....I'm not really even tryin to leak that shit too much but I could use some feedback on it.
critique that mix..all the people who have GOOD mixing skills please
