A console that does it all

With the Zoom LiveTrak L-12 digital mixing console, users can mix the live performance of an entire band and simultaneously record up to twelve discrete channels onto an SD card. At the same time, the console features five powerful headphone outputs, each with its own mix, which means that it can take the place of a separate headphone amplifier. The Zoom LiveTrak L-12 doubles as a USB audio interface with fourteen inputs and four outputs, and can be connected to iOS devices via an optional adapter. Zoom offers this wealth of features for an excellent price.

In the mix

The Zoom LiveTrak L-12's twelve discrete tracks - comprising eight mono and two stereo channels - feature mid-parametric three-band EQs controlled by rotary knobs with LED rings as well as 16 editable onboard send effects (delay and reverb), while the eight mono channels each have their own compressor. The numerous controls and the 12-segment LEDs next to the volume faders allow intuitive mixing, and audio can be simultaneously recorded to an SD card with a resolution of up to 24bit/96kHz - before the EQs and effects, so that the twelve tracks can be further processed in a digital audio workstation on the user's computer.

A workhorse for live applications

With its sophisticated features, the Zoom LiveTrak L-12 is especially suitable for bands who want to mix their gig or rehearsal and record quickly and easily at the same time. It is even possible to start and stop the recording automatically, and an optional footswitch for starting and stopping the recorder playback, manually punching in and out, or muting and unmuting the onboard effects can be connected. The additional audio interface function provides more flexibility, allowing the live mix to be extended with backing or click tracks from a computer. A talkback mic, a metronome, and a master mute button are also on board.

About Zoom

Founded in 1983, the Japanese company Zoom manufactures a variety of audio equipment, including a range of portable "handy" recorders as well as multi-effects processors, effects pedals, drum machines, and samplers. Over the past thirty years, the company has built a reputation for producing innovative yet affordable products based on original microchip designs. Since the Zoom-9002 (an ultra-compact multi-effects processor that can be attached to a guitar strap) was introduced in 1990, Zoom has become one of the leaders in digital audio processing.

Well thought-out

The Zoom LiveTrak L-12's five headphone outputs with their own setup, which allow four musicians and a sound engineer to be supplied with an individual headphone mix, are not only a clever idea, they are also a veritable sensation at this price point. What is more, the Zoom LiveTrak L-12 digital console can store up to nine mixer status scenes. The bright, backlit LC display and adjacent rotary knob provide access to an intuitive menu system for creating new projects, recalling previous projects, and adjusting settings. Standard features such as Hi-Z inputs and 48V phantom power are of course also provided, so the LiveTrak L-12 should fulfil just about every user requirement.

can't think of any reason why you should not get this
Danieldrums 21.04.2020
I have been working with the Zoom for 6 months or so. I have no prior experience nor am I anything of a techy or sound specialist in any way but I managed to figure this thing out pretty easily. I did read quite some youtube films and the manual as well a few times though. I have only used it for recording our band, something we never did before and it works brilliantly. We record our whole band live with drums, guitars and vocals all at once. I have also tracked my drums separately to get the sound I want and I got it just the way I want it thanks to the great effects and the tuning possibilities. Also vocals and guitar separately have been done, beautiful sound again. I have not used it as a live mixer yet so can't speak to that. I have mixed the tracks down and then recorded it to the master, exported it as a WAV to the USB and uploaded it to share with the band. Super easy. I am not even using any computer. So so far, super happy with this purchase.

The portable alrounder
Bogdan Octav 19.07.2018
I have purchased the Livetrak one year ago, for different unusual approaches to recording: In the park, in the rehearsal room, on jamsessions, etc., with a setup that will likely change on every occasion.
Let's go first of all to the limitations:
- no individual EQ buttons for each track, which requires some extra time in the beginning to switch through all the channels and see how the EQ is set
- Fader memory can lead to surprises. Especially the fact that the master fader is also memorized, can create a weird effect: You turn down the master, change the project, and all of the sudden everything goes into feedback, because the other project was saved with the master level all up. This can come to some surprise. A master fader override function would have been useful.
- No track bouncing possible
- no virtual tracks.

That being said, the sound quality is astonishing. The handling is quite intuitive, the results and the reliability excellent.
Giving it a little extra time can yield a wonderful sound, especially considering that the FX quality is very good.

I haven't used it too much as an interface, but I suppose it does its job well, too.

Awesome product, if more for live applications (like I use it) than for music production.

Go Zoom!


What An Amazing Piece Of Kit!
JimsabesT 30.01.2022
I only have the Zoom LiveTrack L-12 about a month now but it has excited and proved itself from first sight upon opening. I was intreagued reading about this compact mixer come recorder, it appeared to be the answer to several tasks I wanted to achieve. The first thing to amaze was the unbelieveable sound emmenating from its electronic innards, I have been involved in music on several fronts for over 55 years but I have never been so impressed with sound quality of this calibre in all of this time. Apart from being a king amongst the ranks of music production the quality, look and appeal of this little giant makes me proud to say that I own one. There are so many accolades, too numerous to mention here, that I just want to say if you are considering purchasing this carrat, this gem don't hesitate and purchase it at once. You won't regret it. As usual, Thomann are the other shining star with top class service and delivery. Well done and thank you Thomann.
