Zoom expanded today their LiveTrak series with the L-20 digital mixing console that features 22 tracks of recording, wireless mixing, iOS compatibility and a SD recorder!
I usually don’t report a lot about mixing console release, but what the Japanese developer Zoom does with the LiveTrak series is interesting. After launching the new LiveTrak some time ago, the company unveiled today the L-20, the big brother of the L-12. The L-20 pursues the same concept (record, mix & save on a SD card) but has been significantly extended in the connections. It features 22 tracks of recording (20 inputs + 1 stereo mix) with an audio in resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz.
To refine recordings, it features also two effect busses and 20 built-in chorus, delay and reverb effects with adjustable parameters. One of the highlights of the LiveTrak L-12 and L-20 is a direct recording feature to a SD card. Like the smaller version, the new L-20 is a perfect companion for live concerts, in the studio or also for iOS musicians.
The LiveTrak™ L-20 is the new digital console offering everything creators need to mix, monitor, and record complex productions. With 20 discrete audio channels and six individual custom monitor mixes, it’s built for bigger, bolder arrangements.
20 Inputs For Bigger Sound
The LiveTrak L-20 is designed to mix bigger. It features 20 inputs (16 mono mic/line inputs and two stereo inputs), all with independent 3-band mid-parametric EQ. The 16 mono inputs offer stand-alone compressor control.
22 Tracks of Recording
Create Six Custom Monitor Mixes
And One for the House
The LiveTrak L-20 features a dedicated 7th output for the FOH engineer. The sound engineer can monitor the main mix and any of the sub mixes, thus adjusting them to the musicians’ satisfaction.
