ZOOM LIVETRAK L-12

August 3, 2017 — Zoom Corporation today unveiled the new LiveTrak L-12, an all-in-one digital mixer that lets musicians, bands, and podcasters mix live performances and record up to 12 discrete channels. LiveTrak also provides five individual custom headphone mixes.

The L-12 is equipped with the quietest and most advanced mic preamps Zoom has ever offered. Musicians and podcasters can capture high-quality audio up to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV format. They can also store projects directly to an SD card to remix on board or transfer them to a DAW for further editing.

A convenient monitor out design can send up to five individual mixes to headphones or in-ear monitors, with no need for a monitor amp. Each performer can dial in their mix independently for optimal workflow during a performance or recording session and save it for later use.

Analog-style controls make it easy to adjust parameters with exacting precision. There’s also a 3-band mid-parametric EQ for each channel as well as 16 built-in send effects.
