For Podcast Creators


Power to the Podcast

Podcast creators are a special breed. They require a unique set of audio features, along with flexibility of a proper mixing console. The LiveTrak L-8 combines Zoom's famous audio performance with features made for podcasters.

Sound Pad Magic

Just press a button to play intros, outros, jingles, ads and sound effects. With 6 easily-assignable Sound Pads, the right sound is at your fingertips.

Fisrt-Time Caller, Long-Time Listener

Remote interviews are a snap with L-8; just connect your phone via the provided TRRS cable. The Mix-Minus function automatically prevents echo and feedback to and from the caller. Or use the USB connection to route audio from Skype, Facetime, Hangouts, Slack and more.

Freedom of Speech

Zoom's premamps are famous for a good reason: they're transparent, powerful and ultra-reliable. The L-8 features six independent Zoom preamps, built to handle anything from a whisper to a raucous debate.

Hear Yourself Talk

If you can't hear yourself, how are you suppose to speak your mind? The L-8 is equipped with four headphone outputs, so that each participant can clearly hear what is going on.

A Track for Everyone

The pros know that when you record everyone on their own separate track it just sounds better and provides more flexibility in the edit. The L-8 records separate track directly to your SD card, enabling you to edit them later.

On Air, On the Move

The Zoom LiveTrak L-8 can run up to 2½  hours with just our AA batteries, or on a USB battery so you can podcast from anywhere.

Record Twice, Once

Used as an audio interface, the L-8 can record full episodes directly to your computer and an SD card simultaneously. You can also live steam while recording. L-8 is class compliant, enabling connection with iOS devices. Apple Lighting to USB Camera Adapter required.

Save Settings. Save Time.

Once you've dialed in your mix...save it! The L-8 lets you save up to 7 show "scenes" that can be saved and instantly recalled at the press of a button.


For Musicians

You can punch-in and overdub with ease, then transfer your work to your favourite DAW for for fine tuning. *Effects, EQ, overdub, and audio interface are not available in 96 kHz.

Go Out & Play

No outlet? No worries. Get up to 2 ½ hours of power from just four AA batteries. You can also power using a USB battery, and with the L-8’s unique USB connection design, you never have to worry about accidentally disconnecting.
