Zoom's new LiveTrak L-8 Digital mixer is the perfect interface choice for creatives to take their podcasts performances to the next level. The 8-channel mixer features the ability to record up to 12 tracks at a time, with a 10-track playback, making it an essential item for broadcasters and musical performers. The pro audio product from the company contains a mix-minus function, which prevents audio feedback from dial-in guests, as well as a TRRS connection.
Here are the main features of the interface:
The L-8 combines a digital mixer with 8 input channels, and a multi-track recorder capable of recording up to 12 tracks simultaneously. It can be used as a 12-in / 4-out USB audio interface even while you are recording to the SD card. Whether recording to the SD card or computer, it will save a separate file for each input so you will have the flexibility to edit and mix in post-production.
Hear Yourself Talk
Podcasters can connect up to 4 pairs of headphones to the L-8’s outputs. In addition to the master output mix, the L-8 has 3 independent monitor mixes, enabling different mixes to be sent to individual musicians, participants, and performers.
Coming Through Loud and Clear
The L-8 features six high performance preamps each with phantom power, a low noise floor (-121dBU EIN), and maximum input gain of +54dB. Additionally, there are two each Hi-Z, line-level and USB inputs. You can also fine-tune each channel with EQ and onboard effects.
Save Settings. Save Time Once you’ve dialed in your mix…save it! The L-8 lets you save up to 7 show “scenes” that can be saved and instantly recalled at the press of a button.
Sound Pad Magic
Sound effects are a necessity for podcasters. The L-8 has 6 sound pads that can be used to play intros, jingles, sound effects, and more. You can trigger a pre-recorded ad or interview to give your hosts a break. If your podcast has a theme or a music bed, you can hit a sound pad to easily play it.
First-Time Caller, Long-Time Listener
Remote podcast guests can be problematic, but not with the L-8. Equipped with a smartphone connection jack and an included TRRS cable, the L-8 is ideal for podcasting with call-in guests. The Mix-Minus function automatically prevents echo and feedback to and from your caller. You can also use the USB connection to route audio from Skype, Facetime, Hangouts, Slack, and more.
On Air, On the Move
Powered with four AA batteries for up to 2 ½ hours, the L-8 is your anytime, anywhere recorder and mixer. For longer recording sessions, you can connect a portable USB battery, and if the USB battery dies, it will automatically switch to the AA battery power. You can always power the L-8 using wall power with the included power adapter.
True Multi-Track Recording
The L-8 lets you record up to 10 discrete tracks plus a stereo mix directly to an SD card at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz*. You can punch-in and overdub with ease, then transfer your work to your favorite DAW for fine tuning.
*Effects, EQ, overdub, and audio interface are not available in 96 kHz
High Quality Audio Interface
The L-8 is also a 12-in/4-out audio interface. Track directly into your favorite DAW or use the USB return to run backing tracks from your computer.
