First, you get the Zoom LiveTrak L-8 mixer and multitrack recorder, a sophisticated machine with six microphone preamps, four headphone outputs, six sound pads, a phone tap for call-in interviews, and faders for easy operation. You can use the L-8 to record to SD cards, stream via USB to computers or iOS devices, or do both at the same time.

Also included are four Shure PGA58-LC dynamic cardioid microphones that are ideal for podcasting. Four boom arms clamp to your desk and provide a sleek, professional look while holding your microphones so you don't have to. The boom arms offer integrated XLR cables for connecting the mics to the L-8. Four pairs of headphones and a 32 GB microSDHC card are also included.

Zoom LiveTrak L-8 Portable 8-Channel Digital Mixer and Multitrack Recorder

The Zoom LiveTrak L-8 digital mixer and recorder puts the flexibility of Zoom's popular LiveTrak L-Series range in a compact and portable format that's optimized for podcasting and music production on the go. The LiveTrak L-8 provides tactile controls and intuitive functionality, so you can start a podcasting or music recording session in minutes.

With six mic preamps, four independent headphone outputs, a phone tap for call-in interviews, and six sound pads, the LiveTrak L-8 can easily handle roundtable podcasts or tracking multiple musicians. Since it can be operated on AA batteries or a USB power supply, it can join you no matter where you go to record.

Whether you record to an SD card, stream via USB to a computer or iOS mobile device, or do both at the same time, the LiveTrak L-8 gives you up to 12 channels of simultaneous multitrack recording. Just add microphones (dynamic or condenser), hook up headphones, and get ready to produce quality content in no time.

Panel Podcasts are No Problem
  • Thanks to its six transparent, low-noise mic preamps with selectable phantom power, the LiveTrak L-8 can accommodate dynamic or condenser microphones for you and multiple guests.
  • Just insert an SDHC or SDXC card to start recording right away. Keep in mind that you can multitrack record via USB to a computer or iOS mobile device (separately available Apple Camera Connection Kit required) whether or not you track to an SD card.
  • No matter which media you choose, the L-8 records separate tracks to ensure flexibility in post-production processes such as editing and mixing.
Six Sound Pads for Triggering Samples or Music
  • Use sound effects and music clips to add excitement to your podcast. The LiveTrak L-8 features six assignable sound pads that allow you to instantly trigger effects, music, applause, prerecorded interviews, or ads.
  • The LiveTrak L-8 comes with 13 preset sounds for its sound pads, making it ready for out-of-the-box production.
Easy Phone Call Interviews
  • The LiveTrak L-8's phone tap lets you easily interview a guest who is calling in remotely on the phone or via common apps like Skype and FaceTime.
  • Simply connect your mobile device to the 3.5mm TRRS port using the supplied TRRS cable (some iOS devices may require a Lightning to headphone jack adapter), and the L-8 utilizes a mix-minus function to ensure that the caller won't hear their own voice echoing back to them.
Multiple Independent Headphone Outputs
  • The host and each guest in your podcast should clearly hear the content of your production. The L-8 offers four 1/4" stereo headphone outputs with independent level controls and mix selectors.
  • The main headphone output is sourced from the master output while the three other headphone outs can be assigned to the master mix or an independent cue mix.
  • Connect the balanced XLR stereo master outputs to a pair of active speakers for convenient monitoring.
Track Song Demos with Multiple Musicians
  • You can easily record song demos and live performances with multiple musicians using the LiveTrak L-8.
  • The first two channels of the L-8 support 1/4" Hi-Z inputs for direct connection of instruments such as a guitar and bass.
  • Channels 7-8 feature 1/4" line inputs, which can be used to plug in a drum machine or stereo keyboard.
  • Utilize the remaining inputs (channels 3-6) for mics on sources such as vocals and drums.
  • The four 1/4" headphone outputs allow you to create custom mixes for each musician.
Flexible Powering Methods
  • Conveniently run the L-8 in remote locations via four AA batteries—up to 2 hours via alkaline batteries, up to 3.5 hours via 1900 mAh NiMH batteries, or up to 6.5 hours via lithium batteries (batteries available separately).
  • A USB cable and the Zoom AD-17 USB-to-AC adapter are included for powering the L-8 from an AC outlet.
  • Alternatively, you can power the L-8 via a USB battery or power bank.
  • The L-8's USB connection is designed to eliminate accidental interruptions, giving you power on which you can rely.
Efficiently Save and Recall Entire Scenes
  • Set your levels, dial in the mix, then save your settings in one of the L-8's seven scene presets.
  • Recall a scene at the push of a button to instantly reconfigure the L-8.
  • Create different scenes for common scenarios such as podcasting, live streaming, band rehearsals, and more.
Record up to 12 Tracks
  • The L-8 records up to 10 discrete tracks and a stereo mix directly to an SD card at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz.
  • Use the L-8 as a 12-input / 4-output audio interface with your computer or iOS mobile device via USB at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz.
  • Punch record and overdub at any time for more complex productions.
  • Optimize the sound of your tracks via onboard effects and each channel's 3-band EQ and low-cut filter (effects, EQ, and overdub functions are unavailable at 96 kHz).

Samson Q2U Recording & Podcasting Pack (Gray)

If you need one mic to handle anything from lead vocals on the stage to podcast recording without the cumbersome audio interface, the Samson Q2U will come in handy, doing so in an all-inclusive package at a cost-effective price. Styled in here in gray, the Q2U consists of a handheld dynamic microphone, a desktop tripod mic stand (with extension tube), a mic clip, a foam windscreen, a USB cable for digital recording, and an XLR cable for analog connections.

You probably see the potential: if you want to travel to the gig with your own microphone, the Q2U will let you do that, plugging into the house PA's XLR input without fuss. If you want to take the mic to a buddy's house for a conversational podcast, again, this is all possible with the Q2U. And finally, whenever you want to rant on your own a la Bill Burr or Mark Maron, setting up your podcast is as easy as plugging the mic into your computer over USB.

Fits Your Needs
The Q2U features both XLR and USB outputs that enable flexible digital recording to any Mac- or Windows-based computer workstation, while simultaneously connected to any analog mixer, preamplifier or PA system.
Handheld Form Factor
This solidly constructed mic is designed to be held in your hand, though it can also be mounted on a stand—such as the one included with the mic. Because of its design, the mic lends itself to comedy shows and comedy podcasts, though it'll work for just about any vocal-centric purpose.
Cardioid Polar Pattern for Stage & Home Use
The microphone makes use of a directional cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic. That's why it's equally effective on the stage and in the home-studio.
Built-In 3.5mm Headphone Jack
The mic offers a headphone jack for monitoring. Just plug a pair of headphones into the Q2U's 3.5mm jack, and you'll be able to listen to your broadcast-quality audio in all its glory.
Easy-to-Use Controls, Minimal Powering Required
The mic offers a simple on/off switch for the XLR output. This acts as a mute, which can come in handy live. This switch has absolutely no bearing on powering the mic—in fact, as this is a dynamic microphone, it requires no power to run when used in the analog domain. When you're plugged into a digital device, such as a computer, the mic will draw power from the computer to operate the digital interface.
Broadcast-Quality Audio Capture
The mic records audio at 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback. It's also worth noting that it can simultaneously record digital audio over USB and route analog audio over its XLR connection, so you can effectively mirror its output if you so choose.
Driverless Setup
The Q2U requires absolutely no drivers to run out of the box. Just plug it in to your computer and you should be good to go.
Included Hardware
In addition to the mic, the Q2U includes a desktop tripod stand with extension tube, a mic clip, a foam windscreen, a USB cable, and an XLR mic cable, giving you almost everything you need to get started.
