Overview

Podcasting, music and beyond.

Because creators are evolving... 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.

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 six 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 ultrareliable. 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 2-1/2 hours with just four AA batteries, or on a USB battery, so you can podcast from anywhere.  

The unique design of the USB connection assures that you’ll never have accidental interruptions.

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 livestream while recording.  

L-8 is class-compliant, enabling connection with iOS devices. An Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter is required (sold separately).

Save Settings. Save Time
Once you’ve dialed in your mix, save it. The L-8 lets you save up to seven show “scenes” that can be saved and instantly recalled at the press of a button.

And for musicians...

Small in Size. Big on Sound.
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.

Coming Through Loud & Clear
The L-8 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.

True Multi-Track Recording
The L-8 lets you record up to ten 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. 

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

Go Out and Play
No outlet? No worries. Get up to 2-1/2 hours of power from just four AA batteries. You can also power using a USB battery, and with the L-8’s unique USB connection design, you never have to worry about accidentally disconnecting. 

Individual Monitor Mixes
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.

High-Quality Audio Interface
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.
