Zoom LIVETRAK L-20 Overview

The highly flexible Zoom LiveTrak L-20 is a 20-input digital mixer and multi-track recorder, well suited for live performances, studio recording, band rehearsals, podcasts, and more. The mixer features 16 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 two send FX for sending signals to the 20 built-in high-quality effects processor with two dedicated EFX Return channels.

The LiveTrak L-20 features balanced XLR main outputs, while the six monitor outputs utilize balanced TRS 1/4" connectors, each with the ability to set up customized mixes. Simply connect your headphones or a stage monitor 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 22 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-20 can also function as a 22-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 LiveTrak L-20 ships with a power cord and a USB cable.

How do the preamps compare the Zoom F8? Tx.
Asked by: Wilhelmina
The L-20 preamps are slightly lower noise (-128dBu EIN vs -127dBu EIN), but cannot provide as much gain as the F8 (+60dB vs +75dB).

Do all tracks bypass onboard effects when ...

Do all tracks bypass onboard effects when recording 20 separate tracks to a SD card for import into a DAW for post production? I want to mix live with effects to FOH and monitors, but record all tracks without any effects for later import and mixing.
Asked by: Brian
All individual tracks will be recorded without any effects applied. If recording on the Master track, all effects will be heard on the recording to the Master track, but not on the individual tracks. The individual tracks can be set to record pre or post compressor in the Menu of the L-20.

Can you link two of the mono tracks in the setup to have additional stereo inputs from the 2 that are on the L20?
Asked by: Oscar
No. There is no way to do this in the device. You have to put two mono tracks into your DAW software and pan one to the left and one to the right.
