Zoom LiveTrak L-8 Podcasting Console
Zoom have produced an exciting all-in-one solution for podcasters. The LiveTrak L-8 digital mixer and recorder provides all the features to produce professional sounding podcasts, with 6 mic inputs, 4 headphone outputs, battery operated, and trigger pads.
Power to the Podcast
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.
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.
Hear Yourself Talk
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.
A Track for Everyone
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.
On Air, On the Move
The Zoom LiveTrak L-8 can run up to 2 ½ hours with just four AA batteries, or on a USB battery, so you can podcast from anywhere.
Record Twice, Once
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.
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.
