Five Custom Monitoring Mixes

Each of LiveTrak's five monitor outputs provides a unique mix, so every performer can create and save a mix that's tailored to their preferences. Its headphone amplifier delivers volume that stands up in any live environment without the need for a separate headphone monitoring setup.

Let's Take a Tour of The Channel Strip

All 12 inputs include a channel fader and mute button. The eight mono inputs also include single-knob compression and gain control. Record or playback individual channels with the "Rec/Play" button. Use the "Select" button to apply Channel Strip settings (EQ and panning controls, and "EFX Return" settings) to the selected channel.

"Unbelievable Live and Studio Mixer"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

This mixer does just about everything you could ask for at this price range, and perhaps in a range several hundred dollars higher. Having five individual monitor mixes on a board of this size and price is essentially unheard of. Add in the ability to record up to 10 tracks simultaneously while also using the board to power the PA/FOH and monitors for all five players, and you have something that very few other products offer. The learning curve is easy, the controls are intuitive, and the aesthetics are pleasing and simple. I love this board and would recommend it to anyone who wants a mobile live solution for offering all of your bandmates individual monitor mixes while powering the PA and recording all inputs. Wish they would have included an SD card, but those are inexpensive and easy to find. With a card, you can bounce all of the individually recorded tracks into the DAW of your choice for mixing/mastering. Conversely, you can also mix and add a few effects on the board before bouncing a master track, but I find the DAW much more flexible. It's nice to have both options, though. If there is one weak spot on the board, it might be the durability. It is mostly plastic and doesn't have the heft of other boards in this size/price range. That said, take care of it and I am sure it will be fine. Zoom has done an absolutely incredible job with this board. I look forward to using it every time I pull it out of the case.
