First-Time Caller, Long-Time Listener

Remote interviews are a snap with the 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 preamps 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.

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 tracks directly to your SD card, enabling you to edit them later.

Hear Yourself Talk

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

On Air, On the Move

The Zoom LiveTrak L-8 can run up to 2 ½ hours with just four 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 stream while recording. 

L-8 is class compliant, enabling connection with iOS devices. Apple Lightning 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

The L-8 is a game-changer for podcasters."

True Multi-Track Recording

The L-8 lets you record up to 10 discrete tracks plus a stereo mix directly to an SD card at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz*. You can punch-in and overdub with ease, then transfer your work to your favorite DAW 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.

Individual Monitor Mixes

Never settle for that “compromise” monitor mix again. The L-8 provides three custom monitor mixes, so no matter where you are on stage, you hear exactly what you need.

High Quality Audio Interface

The L-8 is also a 12-in/4-out audio interface. Track directly into your favorite DAW or use the USB return to run backing tracks from your computer.

L-8 is class compliant, enabling connection with iOS devices. Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter required.

I can mix and record anywhere with the L-8."
