My piano trio is going into the studio for the first time. Being our first time in the studio, we're looking for any tips you more seasoned cats could give us. We're going to do 3 or 4 originals and 3 standards. Question about mastering Is mastering necessary? What are the costs? Question about playing standards We're going to play Three Flowers (a mccoy tune), Rio (a brazilian tune), and I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face. If we are to make copies of the music and give it out or sell it to our friends and people who we want it, will we have to deal with copyrights and licenses? Let me know if any of you TBers want a copy, I'll get one to you for cheap.
