I, a representative and guitarist of MidAir Express, need help and suggestions in wether or not recording at a studio or at home is best. And if home is the way to go, what equpment and programmes are needed?

Would appreciate feedback.

P.S: As far as licenscing of songs goes, where can one register songs in South Africa, and how important is this for a 'fresh outta the ground' band like us?

Thanks, Kimberly
