Chapter 17. Uing External Effects > Pre-Fader and External Effects

Pre-Fader and External Effects

External effects, more than software plug-ins, can have problems interfacing with line-level equipment such as a computer and sound card. Some older effects are designed for much lower input levels than current gear, and you may wind up using crazy effects like guitar distortion pedals or vocoder inputs. Because of these potential problems when using external effects, you may particularly want to be able to control the level sent to an effect by making it pre-fader.

Pre-fader send effects allow you to send any amount of the signal to the effect, no matter where the channel fader is set. The fader may be set to zero, with the track not playing in the mix, but a pre-fader send will still route the signal to the effect.
