Now is the right time to become an American Federation of Musicians member. From ragtime to rap, from the early phonograph to today's digital recordings, the AFM has been there for its members. And now there are more benefits available to AFM members than ever before, including a multi-million dollar pension fund, excellent contract protection, instrument and travelers insurance, work referral programs and access to licensed booking agents to keep you working.
As an AFM member, you are part of a membership of more than 80,000 musicians. Experience has proven that collective activity on behalf of individuals with similar interests is the most effective way to achieve a goal. The AFM can negotiate agreements and administer contracts, procure valuable benefits and achieve legislative goals. A single musician has no such power.
The AFM has a proud history of managing change rather than being victimized by it. We find strength in adversity, and when the going gets tough, we get creative - all on your behalf.
Like the industry, the AFM is also changing and evolving, and its policies and programs will move in new directions dictated by its members. As a member, you will determine these directions through your interest and involvement. Your membership card will be your key to participation in governing your union, keeping it responsive to your needs and enabling it to serve you better. To become a member now, visit www.afm.org/join.

Radial Engineering’s Key-Largo keyboard mixer and performance pedal features quarter-inch analog inputs to connect up to three stereo or mono keyboards, plus a USB interface for use with soft synths or computer-based audio. All inputs feature individual level control. Separate send controls access a shared effects loop activated via a dedicated footswitch. The effects return has its own level control to easily blend the signal and direct sound. A built-in momentary sustain footswitch allows Key-Largo to also act as a standalone sustain pedal. Key-Largo’s USB interface is equipped with high-quality 24-bit/192kHz converters and can be used for both playback and recording.
