Full Description

Perfect for podcasts, live-broadcasts and recording

The Zoom LiveTrak L-8 is the ideal mixing and recording solution for musicians and podcasters, providing a compact and affordable way to capture recordings in immense quality. The LiveTrak L-8 features eight discrete channels in total, as well as a stereo mix and custom monitor mixes. The mixer includes a wide range of connectivity including premium-grade mic preamps that boast the quietest and most advanced circuitry that Zoom has to offer.

You can mix and record live performances, straight to an SD card; which then can be remixed onboard or transferred to a digital audio workstation for deeper editing capabilities. The Zoom L-8 features seven scenes in total, where you can save and customise your mixer settings for instant recall for optimal flexibility.

Exceptional audio fidelity and performance

The Livetrak L-8 Mixer can deliver exceptional audio fidelity thanks to the premium-grade components and low noise microphone preamps. This allows you to record studio-grade audio up to 24-bit/96kHz in the WAV format. The high-resolution converters ensure you capture every nuance from your broadcasts and live performance.

Sound pads – jingles and sound effects in one button

Another highly useful tool for podcasters are the sound pads. The L-8 features six sound pads in total, allowing you to assign jingles and sounds to each of the pads. From here, you can trigger your stings, jingles and sound FX at the touch of a button; something normally reserved for professional radio stations.

Take calls on the air

Should you have a guest to speak to or interview, you can now do it via your phone. The TRRS connection allows you to connect your phone to the mixer and broadcast the call whilst you talk. Additionally, the Mix-Minus function eliminates echo and feedback for you and the caller. You can even use the USB connection to route audio from various programs such as Skype, Facetime, Hangouts and more.

12-in/4-out digital audio interface

One of the most unique features of this digital live mixer is the ability to use it as a full-featured digital audio interface as well as a mixer. The versatile design means you can connect the mixer to your computer using the integrated USB connection, allowing you to output the signals to a DAW, which can also be passed to an L-8 stereo channel and sent to the master out. This gives you the ability to play backing track whilst you mix and record for added versatility.
