comment Room-wide humidity buffering
This will look more valid if the instruments were listed. If they're brass, it won't make much difference, but piano, and strings will.A piano humidifier/dehumidifier was mentioned yesterday.That question worked.

Wouldn't be surprised if Beethoven used fff, especially in the later pieces...

comment Is there a difference between 2/4 and 4/4
@awe - they can easily be equal. Half notes and quarter notes at the same tempo are not the same, but at different tempos could be equal to each other.

comment What is a session musician?
B major is more unusual. Most pianos in studios are electronic, and can easily be 'retuned' to play in any key choice of the player.(Acoustic pianos need a lot of fettling.)Not that this should be the best approach !

comment What causes us to hear harmonics?
And if it wasn't for harmonics, brass instruments probably wouldn't be around, since they rely on these to produce most of their notes. The bugle and hunting horn being the most basic.And I guess that harmonics themselves have their own set of harmonics?
