Zoom F8 - Define PFL

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased my Zoom F8 and even after using the F8 manual to learn how to set the PFL settings, the manual never defines what the PFL acronym stands for?

I would appreciate any answer on what PFL actually stands for ?

to expand on the answer Jeff gave, the F8(n) can switch between PFL (Pre-fader listen) and Solo modes.

 

Solo is post fader listen.

 

PFL is used for checking sources and signals before being added to a mix, so you can have a fader down and listen to a mic to make sure all is well before that person goes into their scene or whatever. Solo is more of a music or post tool, where you want to briefly isolate a track in-situ at the same level it is in the mix.

Thank you so much Jeff and Peter.  I greatly appreciate your answers.  And now that I know that PFL stands for" Pre Fade Listen", I'm going to continue reading my manual and practicing on my F8, to make sure I get comfortable with using PFL.

Thanks again !!!

When I got asked this question, which happened frequently in music recording studios. I could not resist the  "Pretty F_cking' Loud" response, Of course I always followed up with 'Pre Fader Listen' and its usage.
