    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.

    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.

    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.

    jbl lsr series monitors aren't garbage lol

    but i'd rather go with some dynaudio, genelec, adam or focal monitors

    as for sounding like dre....

    step 1: buy an ssl 9000j
    step 2: buy a 24 track studer tape machine
    step 3: file bankruptcy as you've just dropped over a million dollars on shit you probably don't know how to use
