Zoom LiveTrak L-12 overview

  • 1Description

The highly flexible Zoom LiveTrak L-12 is a 12-channel digital mixer and multi-track recorder, well suited for live performances, studio recording, band rehearsals, podcasts, and more. The compact mixer features 8 mono channels, each with combo mic/line XLR-1/4" inputs with high gain, low-noise microphone preamps, +48V phantom power, and a single compression knob, while the two stereo inputs offer dual 1/4" and RCA inputs. Channels 1-2 also offer Hi-Z inputs for connecting guitars and basses. All channels work with the on-board channel strip, which provides a low-cut filter, a 3-band EQ, a pan control, and a send FX for sending signal to the 16 built-in high-quality effects processor with a dedicated EFX Return channel.

The main output utilizes balanced XLR outputs, while a stereo monitor send is available via two 1/4" outputs. Additionally, the Zoom LiveTrack L-12 offers five headphone outputs, each with the ability to set up customized mixes. Simply connect your headphones and adjust the levels to taste. There are nine snap-shot presets, which allow you instant recall of different setups and sessions.

The built-in SD recorder can simultaneously record every channel and the master fader stereo signal output for a total of 14 tracks at resolutions up to 24-bit/ 96 kHz. Files can easily be copied to a computer and used in a DAW. In addition, overdubbing and punching in/out can be done as expected when using the unit as a multi-track recorder. The L-12 can also function as a 14-in/4-out USB audio interface, allowing you to record directly to your favorite software DAW or to iOS devices. Other notable features include 12-segment LED meters on all channels, a built-in metronome, and a built-in slate mic for identifying takes. The Zoom LiveTrack L-12 ships with a power cord and a USB cable.

    Zoom LiveTrak L-12 reviews

    LiveTrak L-12 - 12-Channel Digital Mixer & Multitrack Recorder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A rare find! Most digital recorders today require changing hook-ups, bouncing tracks, you name it. �I have three keyboards and one module plugged into this thing along with two mics so when I want to record I just push some buttons, move some sliders and get to it and then can easily mix it all down to a master track or cd recorder. �I love it and would highly recommend�it to anyone not wanting to make� rocket science out of recording.
    Date published: 2017-12-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Live Playback and Recording The LiveTrak L-12 weighs in at 5.6 lbs. and is rack mountable; big pluses for those of us that want to take something to gigs for playback and recording. The channel faders are a big improvement over previous Zoom products that I have used and the effects implementation is easy and straight forward to use. I also like that there are Five (5) output buses with independent level controls that can be used for headphones or other mixes. I tested the Audio Interface feature with Sonar X1 and it worked as advertised and that should make live performances easy to record or playback from a DAW. One of my first questions out of the box was would I be able to import projects from my MRS 1608 to the LiveTrak? The short answer to that question was no. However I was able to use the Zoom Audio File Utility software to export individual .Wav tracks from my MRS 1608 projects. I then created a new project on the L-12 and imported my 1608 .Wav tracks to the LiveTrak project via a USB drive. Simple enough and problem solved. After several weeks of use I did find several problems and omissions. The manual needs to be revised as it does not document several key steps covering recording (e.g. Overdub) and you have to learn by trial and error. The record/playback transport keys are small and not backlit, so in a dark venue one would need external lighting to prevent embarrassing miscues. There is also no Jog Wheel for data entry. This is understandable given the smaller form factor but the user is forced to use a small, plastic rotary knob which feels tedious in use, and ahem, cheap. The firmware for this unit appears to be immature as I lost a project when I renamed it and the project creation logic is full of surprises. These issues can probably be fixed with a firmware update but this is disappointing even for a new product release. Also there is no external effects loop, which probably won’t be a showstopper for many folks but will be for anyone wanting to move beyond the build in effects which are OK, but not all that great. Ultimately I believe the Pros outweigh the Cons, and for those looking for a lightweight, quality mixer/recorder to take to the gig/show, your ship may have just sailed in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Many features for small venue mixing, monitoring & recording The Zoom LiveTrak L-12 is a cost effective solution for installation in small venues or houses of worship. It offers enough channels for small groups and quartets, choir, podcasting, and the audio interface capability is a real bonus. To top it off there are numerous FX to sculpt the sound for live performance or recording. Lightweight, small and medium plastic build. I plan to take it on my international trips and work with local musicians as my entre into other cultures.

    Date published: 2018-06-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing machine!!! This all in one box is nothing short of amazing! I'm blown away by all that it can do. I've been recording for over 20 years, done it all, tascam cassette 4 track, 2/4/8 channel interfaces, laptops, home studios, pro studios. Now this thing comes along and sheesh, it can do it all! The preamps are nice and clean with plenty of gain, I set the record IN meters in the menu, the 5 mix outs are a god send. I recorded 8 channels at band practice for an hour and a half, got home and transferred to the computer, it was just 3gb. Immediate playback and ability to mix right away is great, sound quality is crystal clear from highs to lows, the reverb is nice for a adding a bit of depth to vocals/guitar/keys. I love that when you stop and hit record it creates a new folder and song automatically, no fumbling through menu's. The fader adjustments are a bit tricky at first when switching mixes as the faders don't work until you set them back to the light markers but next time I'll know. I was choosing between the L-12, the soundcraft 24 and the new Tascam mixer/recorder thats coming out, this is perfect in size for portability, I don't need the pad or phone connectivity. My only complaint is the power adapter wire is thin and flimsy, would have preferred the heftier 3 prong plugs, also the metal piece is a little hard to unplug from the machine, it takes a bit of force, I hope that connector doesn't fall apart one day. All in all this all in one unit is mind blowing in everything that it can do, I feel it's a laptop, multi-headphone amp, effect unit, mixer all in one small footprint, Zoom came through big on this product!
