It is cheap to do... I went through Harry Fox for a couple recordings and later made arrangements directly with the publisher. It really was, for me, just submitting the paperwork and a check. It could've been anyone on the other end as far as dealing with the agency. When I dealt with the publisher directly, it was more involved. I had to submit the recording and then I got a call from a member of the band to wish me well and just have a chat. I was able to get a much better deal that way and it was tailored to the type of release I was doing.
If you're going to sell or distribute the recording in any way you need to get a mechanical license or you are opening yourself up to a much larger chunk of change through a lawsuit, and they will probably find out that you're distributing their stuff...
