Quick Question:

My band just recorded one track from a local music studio, un-contracted. We would like to get access to the Pro Tools files from the producer to take to a professional studio for mixing and mastering. Does the band have the rights to those tracks or does he have the right to refuse to release?

There is no reason why the producer would refuse to give you the tracks. Just make sure you pay him for his services and all is well.

You have the rights to the tracks as you have not signed anything under contract saying he has control of them.
#5
Is that your equipment? Is that your studio? Did you have him sign anything stating that everything done and collected during the time-span of your session including the audio and Pro Tools files belongs to you?

you are absolutely entitled to your own music as long as it isn't under a binding contract specifically saying that once recorded, he owns the masters

As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

Beat me to it. Just make sure you paid for his service and you'll be ok.
