    That means they get 3.75% each, assuming an equal split. Now break that down into album points, and 15% of 100% at a $10.99 CD price. That 15% yields them $1.65 per CD sold. Their last album sold 4 million +, so let's say 5 million for a round figure.

    5 mil x $1.65 = $8.25M

    $8.25M / 4 members = $2.06M

    Taxes on $2.06M are 47% in the US, as it falls in the highest bracket.

    So after Taxes, each member has $1.09M.

    Keep in mind, this is BEFORE they take out the recoup...

    Assuming they went low budget on production, etc... let's say they made the entire album for $2M.

    Take out the $2M in recoup costs, and that leaves $2.36M to be split by all 4 members of the group.

    Which means each member would end up with $591,800 after label recoup, and taxes.

    That's for selling 5 million records...
    got DAMN!!
    That just changed my whole perspective on wanting to become famous... well i do wanna be famous but i wanna be famous without all the taxes

    Just to add my 2, this is why everyone tours. That's where the money is... That, and endorsements. Didn't Black Eye Peas do some commercials?? You only do cd's to get people to come to your shows and buy your t-shirts.

    the SRLP $18.99(Suggested Retail List Price) multiplied by 3%(Producer's Points)= 57 cents

    $18.99 x .03 = 0.569(.57)

    unless you produced the whole album..you won't see .57 cent

    now we need to take the .57 cent and divided by the number of tracks on the CD(15)

    $18.99 x .03 = 0.569 / 15 = $0.0379 per song

    so you will get ~$0.04 per song you produced on the album if you did more then 1 song..its that easy..

    so now you know have to figure out what you would get after the labe recoup their money...

    stay on your grind...peace
    I know a lot of producers nowadays rely on up-front fees. Mechanical royalties are kind of screwed up for now. Just wait 'till they get the laws together for the internet and the money starts coming in again

    omg...

    i just got off the phone with an artist who is going to need production done for his album...ive worked with him before but it was just stuff for mixtapes and stuff like that...

    His company is suppose to be calling me tell me about my producer points..

    i had no idea what producer points really are and was worried that i was just going to get abused and not treated fair..

    this kinda gives me an idea of what producer points are now..thanks alot

    i wont be producing the whole album..but i say maybe 3 to 5 songs....

    how much money per unit am i looking at?

    and how do i give someone rep points?
