Master Fader

The fader, or sometimes a stereo pair of faders, on a mixing console that controls the overall level of the summed audio output. In some hardware and most software mixers, the master fader can be automated to control fades that are to be applied to the mix as a whole. It isn’t uncommon for equalizer or dynamics-controlling devices such as compressors or limiters to be inserted on the master fader as a means to apply the effect to the entire mix.
