The Zoom LiveTrak L-12 Digital Mixer offers you Effortless Live Mixing. LiveTrak's 12 discrete channels (eight mono plus two stereo) have a 3-band mid-parametric EQ and 16 built-in send effects. Its eight mono channels also have a dedicated compressor. With all these controls plus its 12-segment LED metering, the L-12 offers just what you need for intuitive mixing.

Record Everything, Remix Anywhere

LiveTrak lets you record 12 discrete tracks up to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV audio to an SD card while simultaneously mixing your live show. Tracks are recorded pre-EQ and effects, so they can be transferred to your favorite DAW for further mixing and editing.

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.

Easy EQ Control

The L-12 provides a smooth 3-band mid-parametric EQ and a low cut function for each input channel.

Navigation and Display

LiveTrak's bright, backlit LCD screen and encoder knob let you access an intuitive menu system to create new projects, recall previous projects, and customize your recorder settings.

16 On-board Effects

Convenient Auto Recording

Record automatically by adjusting the L-12's customizable audio input commands. Set it to start when the master fader detects a certain dB level, or use a guitar chord or snare hit to start the track. You can capture data up to two seconds before recording starts, in case a performance begins ahead of time.

Versatile Operation Modes

The L-12 is equipped with several operation modes. Audio Interface mode lets you route inputs and outputs to any DAW.

With USB Host mode, transfer projects and audio files to a connected USB flash drive. In Card Reader mode, the L-12 acts as an SD card reader, allowing you to transfer audio files to and from your computer.

"Great for studio recording, podcasting and a standalone mixer"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I really love the fact that you can monitor five individual headphones inputs with it's own volume control. It is definitely a game changer for people that do podcasting, studio recording and live mixing. The best part of it all is that you can record in your DAW on seperate tracks all AT THE SAME TIME. It's dope!
