Zoom L12 Digital Mixer Labeled
    The Channel Strip ( 1 )
    All 12 inputs include a channel fader and mute button. The eight mono inputs also include single-knob compression and gain control. Record or playback individual channels with the "Rec/Play" button. Use the "Select" button to apply Channel Strip settings (EQ and panning controls, and "EFX Return" settings) to the selected channel.

    Easy EQ Control ( 2 )
    The L-12 provides a smooth 3-band mid-parametric EQ and a low cut function for each input channel.

    Plenty of Inputs ( 3 )
    The L-12’s combo inputs support XLR or 1/4-inch connections. Channels 1 and 2 offer Hi-Z inputs for connecting an electric guitar or bass. Channels 9/10 and 11/12 have TRS line connectivity for keyboards and other audio devices, as well as RCA inputs.

    Navigation and Display ( 4 )
    LiveTrak’s bright, backlit LCD screen and encoder knob let you access an intuitive menu system to create new projects, recall previous projects, and customize your recorder settings.

    16 Onboard Effects ( 5 )
    The L-12 offers 16 built-in effects with fully adjustable parameters. Choose from delay and reverb effects, then apply them to any channel.

    Custom Scene Settings ( 6 )
    Save up to nine different scenes and recall your custom settings automatically. Each scene saves fader position, EQ settings, pan, mute, and more. The “Fader Mode” buttons allow you to design custom mixes for both the Master and monitor outs.

    Slate Mic and Metronome ( 7 )
    Use the built-in slate mic to record comments or talk-back, and program the metronome to your desired tempo.
Effortless Live Mixing
LiveTrak’s 12 discrete channels (eight mono plus two stereo) have a 3-band mid-parametric EQ and 16 built-in send effects. Its eight mono channels also have a dedicated compressor. With all these controls plus its 12-segment LED metering, the L-12 offers just what you need for intuitive mixing.

Record Everything, Remix Anywhere
LiveTrak lets you record 12 tracks up to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV audio to an SD card while simultaneously mixing your live show. Mix and overdub your finished project on LiveTrak, or transfer the discrete tracks to your favorite DAW for further mixing and editing.

Five Custom Monitoring Mixes
Each of LiveTrak’s five monitor outputs provides a unique mix, so every performer can create and save a mix that’s tailored to their preferences. Its headphone amplifier delivers volume that stands up in any live environment without the need for a separate headphone monitoring setup.

USB Connectivity for Your DAW
LiveTrak is also a 14-in/4-out USB audio interface with flexible routing options, offering unlimited possibilities. Class compliant mode, which enables connection with iOS devices, is also supported.*

*Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter required.

What’s Under the Hood?

Our Best Mic Preamps Yet
At -128 dBu EIN with +60 dB maximum input gain, LiveTrak is equipped with the quietest and most advanced preamps we’ve ever made. Just wait until you hear how incredible it sounds.

High-Definition Sample Rates
The L-12 supports sample rates up to 96 kHz when recording to an SD card, allowing you to record in high definition. In Audio Interface mode, the L-12 can record up to 48 kHz to a computer and an SD card simultaneously.

Convenient Auto Recording
Record automatically by adjusting the L-12’s customizable audio input commands. Set it to start when the master fader detects a certain dB level, or use a guitar chord or snare hit to start the track. You can capture data up to two seconds before recording starts, in case a performance begins ahead of time.

Versatile Operation Modes
The L-12 is equipped with several operation modes. Audio Interface mode lets you route inputs and outputs to any DAW.

With USB Host mode, transfer projects and audio files to a connected USB flash drive. In Card Reader mode, the L-12 acts as an SD card reader, allowing you to transfer audio files to and from your computer.

Here's what comes included with the L-12:
  • AC adapter (AD-19)

Don't get caught with the mute on
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
This product is a good product. The only issue I have with it is the mute button. For many of us that have experience using mixing boards, what we know as the traditional mute button the one on the L-12 does not work the same way. For example, when you initiate the button while doing a live recording using the onboard recorder the mute button does not work the same. It does not mute, so it could be quite disappointing when you are using it for podcasting.

For the simple minded
What is your opinion of this product?
This does what is needed without the hasstle of complication.Simple and clean layout without the fuss of apps and menu diving. Simplicity is eligance. And the sound qualty is very good to excellent. If you want to recording engineer then this probably isn't going to do everything you want. But of you just want clean clear recordings that tell it like it is then you won't be disappointed.

Very cool and flexible
What is your opinion of this product?
This little guy has the right features and sounds great. Low noise pre, use as a standalone mixer, usb interface, not crazy about the delays but the compressors work good. Easy to use just read the manual and do a couple practice songs to get the hang of it. Glad I bought it and would recommend if you need good sound and flexibility on a budget. It even includes a long usb cable in the box to get you going. Thanks for reading and happy recording
