The musicians' union has changed the rules and rates charged for limited press demo recordings. This is important if you plan to sell your demos made with union musicians.
The Limited Pressing agreement is a widely used Local 257 scale, slightly more expensive than demo scale, that allows independent labels and songwriters to release recordings at a lower cost than AFM Master scale. An additional payment is due to musicians only when 10,000 copies are manufactured and/or sold. In the past, conversion of demo recordings to Limited Pressing was not allowed.
