Zoom LiveTrak L-8 Portable 8-Channel Digital Mixer and Multitrack Recorder

POWER TO THE PODCAST

Podcast creators are a special breed. They require a unique set of audio features, along with the flexibility of a proper mixing console. The LiveTrak L-8 combines Zoom’s famous audio performance with features made for podcasters.

SOUND PAD MAGIC

Press a button to play intros, outros, jingles, ads, and sound effects. With 6 easily-assignable Sound Pads, the right sound is at your fingertips.

FIRST-TIME CALLER, LONG-TIME LISTENER

Remote interviews are a snap with the L-8; connect your phone via the provided TRRS cable. The Mix-Minus function automatically prevents echo and feedback to and from the caller. Or use the USB connection to route audio from Skype, Facetime, Hangouts, Slack, and more.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Zoom’s preamps are famous for a good reason: they’re transparent, robust, and ultra-reliable. The L-8 features six independent Zoom preamps, built to handle anything from a whisper to a raucous debate.

A TRACK FOR EVERYONE

The pros know that when you record everyone on their own separate track it just sounds better and provides more flexibility in the edit. The L-8 records separate tracks directly to your SD card, enabling you to edit them later.
