Rack-Ready for Wireless Mixing: the Zoom LiveTrak L-20R Digital Mixer

If you need a space-saving, rack-ready mixer that’ll handle anything from multi-guest podcasts to full-band live shows, look no further than the Zoom LiveTrak L-20R, a digital mixer designed for multi-track recording, wireless mixing, and flexible monitoring without taking up a bunch of precious table space. Occupying just 3 RU—large enough to house 16 preamps and comprehensive I/O, but small enough for compact road cases and one-person transport—the L-20R presents a welcome balance of features, power, and size.

The L-20R has 16 high-gain, low-noise mic preamps with XLR-1/4" combo jacks and two pairs of stereo inputs via 1/4" and RCA jacks. There are stereo XLR master outputs, six independent 1/4" monitor outputs, and a dedicated source-selectable 1/4" stereo FOH (Front of House) headphone output. Each of the six monitor outputs can be switched between a headphone output and a balanced line-level output, allowing proper driving of headphones or stage monitors. The 16 mono channels feature +48V phantom power (selectable in banks of four), up to 60 dB of gain, -26 dB pads, and dedicated single-knob compression, all easily accessible from the L-20R’s face.

Export projects or audio files via SD card or flash drive, record up to 20 separate channels and a stereo mix at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz to an SD card, or, for audio-interface functionality, route 22 channels of audio (up to 48 kHz) via USB to a computer or iOS device running your favorite audio app—even while recording to an SD card! Overdubbing is also an option, should you prefer to layer tracks in stages. The backlit LCD screen and transport controls on the front panel make operation of the onboard recorder user-friendly and efficient. The L-20R even sports a metronome to give musicians a stable tempo reference.

Choose from the 20 built-in adjustable effects including reverb, delay, and chorus to sweeten your mix. Control every aspect of your mix remotely on your iPad via the downloadable Remote Mixer app; a BTA-1 Bluetooth adapter is included to allow wirelessly connectivity between your iPad and the L-20R. You can set up additional iPads to empower the artists with convenient wireless control of their own monitor mix settings (e.g. levels, EQ, and effects). Quickly store and recall your L-20R configurations via nine scene slots. Support for multiple footswitch functions is offered, and easy access to device parameters and project management is provided via the backlit LCD screen, rotary encoder, and menu button. The LiveTrak L-20R ships with an AC adapter and rack ears. All you have to do is connect your mics, speakers, and headphones!
