Zoom LiveTrak L-8 makes it easier than ever to mix, monitor and record professional-sounding podcasts and music performances in one portable, affordable package.

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 audio performance with features made for podcasters. Just press a button to play intros, outros, jingles, ads and sound effects. With six easily-assignable Sound Pads, the right sound is at your fingertips.

Remote interviews are a snap with the L-8—just 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.

Zoom's preamps are noteworty because they are transparent, powerful, and ultra-reliable. The L-8 features six independent Zoom preamps, built to handle anything from a whisper to a raucous debate.

If you can't hear yourself, how are you supposed to speak your mind? The L-8 is equipped with four headphone outputs, so that each participant can clearly hear what is going on.

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.

The Zoom LiveTrak L-8 can run up to 2 1/2 hours with just four AA batteries, or on a USB battery, so you can podcast from anywhere. With the its unique USB connection design, you never have to worry about accidentally disconnecting. Used as an audio interface, the L-8 can record full episodes directly to your computer and an SD card simultaneously. You can also live stream while recording.

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.

From singer-songwriters to small bands, the L-8 is the ideal mixer and recorder for musicians who may be small in number, but big on sound. It 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.

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.

Never settle for that "compromise" monitor mix again. The L-8 provides three custom monitor mixes, so no matter where you are on stage, you hear exactly what you need.

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.

*Effects, EQ, overdub, and audio interface are not available in 96 kHz.
