Pre-fader means that something is active before the fader. This is most commonly used when talking about effects, plugins, sends and inserts. As the fader controls the volume of the channel or track, putting something before or after the fader can have drastic effects on the volume of said thing.

Most often, you put something pre-fader when you don't want it to be affected by changes in the track volume.
