Newbie here. I've already installed GRUB with Ubuntu Studio, and I'm wondering if when I install another OS (windows 7) will GRUB automatically recognize the new OS or will it have to be reconfigured in some way?

Every version of Win* to date has overwritten the MBR with its own bootloader; I see no reason why Win 7 would be any different. There are numerous tutorials on how to restore Grub after this happens, one is https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows
