Hi

Regarding effects processing tools such as Compressors, Limiters and Normalization, is it necessary to add any of these effects to a solo piano recording if intended for retail? I'm sure this depends on many factors and is widely debatable amongst others, namely personal choice.

Or would just a clean i high quality input recording be all that's necessary?

Almost every professional recording has some "effects" applied to it, even if very subtle. Some comp / lim / norm is pretty typical.

Are talking about acoustic piano recording or digital piano recording ? On an acoustic piano post-processing is a must like EQ, compressor, reverb and normalized. On a VST the processing has already been apply to the sample so your ears will tell you.

Your response is completely accurate, it never came to mind until i read this post, thanks Serge, and to everyone else for your input.
