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.

Product Review

I bought it for my son to use in the dorm room. I tested it at home for 3 days. This is exactly what the doctor prescribed! Yes, its plastic, but not flimsy. Yes, its small, but not miniscule, like Roland Botique or Korg Volca stuff. As a mixer it sounds pristine, even when you add some EQ and crank up the gain a bit, still pristine. Add some reverb (only one send/return type effect processor), still excellent. Add some "one knob" Compression on some (or up to 8) inputs, still pretty darn good. Now you can add up to 5 (FIVE) fully customizable headphone/monitor mixes with 5 separated outputs and 5 volume knobs! How about that? Ive paid $500 for a 6 channel headphone distribution rack unit in my studio alone, right? So this makes my son and his friends able to plug in a couple guitars, a bass, a couple of keys, plus whatever, and jamming until the whee hour without disturbing the neighbors. The Audio Interface: At 24 bit and 48 kHz it is also pristine. Its class compliant, plugged it into my iPad pro, opened Auria, and there they were, all 8 mono and 2 stereo inputs, and 4 USB return. Again, the latency was absolutely minimal, mixing the USB return stuff with the live instruments was a breeze (push of one button) and again, no audible latency. How about that? The only reason I'm not getting the larger version (20, I guess) right now, is the lack of MIDI, and no control protocoll implementation of any kind, in other words, you cant use it as a control surface for your DAW. Overall, worth every penny, in good hands it is absolutely capable if producing pro results.

Great digital mixer

Product Review

I use this product for my podcast/ called yo dmv raps, Audio is very clear, no background noise, don't really have to put any equipment or anything else on audio, but you have the choice to, it's a equipment channel on the unit, it's good for people like me who really don't have that much experience with digital mixers, but Im definitely learning and continue to learn more

I like the possibilities that this Mixer provides!

Product Review

This product comes at a slight learning curve. I am still working on understanding all of the ins and out of it, but I am confident that it will help me complete my projects in the near future. I love the ability to record directly into the mixer as well as all of the channels available to connect different voices/pieces of equipment.

Just plain love it!

Product Review

I own a working studio, and one of my clients has an 8 piece band. I have always recorded their rhythm section remotely, in the band owners garages. Before I bought this L-12 I used the older Zoom 12x2 to do my remote tracking. It recorded 8 tracks simultaneously, but had no built in usb interface. When recording in my studio I used a bulky Mackie 22-4 and inserted specific channels from it to a Focusrite 4 input interface. Then we moved, and with a smaller studio space, the Mackie had to go. This Zoom L-12 does it all. When in the studio, using Cakewalk Sonar, the interface works flawlessly, giving me pristine sound with many extra features I did not have before. When recording remotely I am able to record the band directly into Sonar, thus eliminating a couple of hours flying tracks into Sonar later. The only downside to the L-12 is that it is not a hard disk recorder with editing capabilities. No copy and paste, etc. You can punch in and out using a foot switch, though. For me this was not a problem, as I never liked editing using a little LCD window anyway. All my editing has always been in the DAW. The L-12 is intuitive, if you have experience with other recorders, you will know 90% of how to use this machine in a day or two.

Upgraded!

Product Review

I upgraded from the yamaha mg10xu analog mixer to this beautiful device. Along with the option for more inputs, it also allows me to record straight to the board which is a game changer. It's absolutely worth the money!

Don't get caught with the mute on

Product Review

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.
