Fold Back

Foldback is the use of loudspeakers facing the performers rather than the audience. During a performance which is amplified, the sound projected towards the audience form the main loudspeakers of a P. A. System is not easy for the performers to monitor.

Foldback gives performers their own mix which can be balanced separately from the main sound and might remove certain elements. For example, it is common to remove the caller at a barn dance from the band's mix.
