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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Powered with four AA batteries for up to 2-1/2 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.
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.
Sound Pad Magic
Just 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; 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.
Freedom of Speech
Zoom's preamps are famous for a good reason: they're transparent, powerful and ultra-reliable. The L-8 features six independent Zoom preamps, built to handle anything from a whisper to a raucous debate.
