after-fader listen : (AFL) On many recording and mixing consoles, there is an option labeled AFL, or after-fader listen. This allows the listener to hear the audio after the channel fader has effected the audio signal. The AFL is also known as post-fader listen. The oposite of AFL is pre-fader listen.
fader : (1) A variable attenuator, or volume control. (2) A variable control used to change the distribution of power between front and rear speakers.
group fader : A control which sums and adjusts the output of several other faders which have been routed to that group. See gang, grouping.v grouping
master fader : A fader to which the groups or channels in a mixing desk are connected. It normally controls the level of the stereo output from the desk.
pre-fader send : See monitor send.
pre-fader listen : Abbreviated PFL. A monitoring point placed before a fader on a mixing desk so that the signal can be listened to before being boost or cut for recording or broadcasting, i.e., the incoming signal can be heard regardless of the position of the fader on that particular input. Note that aux sends are generally monitored post-fade listen.
post-fader listen : Also called after-fade listen AFL. Signal routing within a mixing console to allow audio signals to be monitored at the level set by the fader on that input, rather than monitoring the level coming to the input, as in pre-fade listen, Aux sends are usually monitored post-fader. Because of the ambiguity of the abbreviation PFL, be sure to use AFL (after-fade listen) for post-fade listen as PFL is generally taken to denote pre-fade listen.
post-fader send : See effects send.
