Mix Remotely. Record Directly. LIVETRAK L-20R The Portable Mixer/Recorder That Does it All
The Zoom LiveTrak™ L-20R is a rack-mountable digital mixer that allows musicians to control their live mix right from the stage with the use of an iPad. With wireless control, 20 discrete channels, 22 tracks of recording and six custom monitor mixes, the L-20R offers a complete solution for any venue.
Portable and Powerful
Featuring 16 mono mic/line inputs and two stereo inputs, the L-20R can handle the most demanding stages. The L-20R offers two EFX busses and each channel includes a 3-band EQ, pan controls and compressor.
22 Tracks of Recording
During your live performance, record 20 channels plus a stereo mix directly to an SD card, then transfer your tracks to your DAW for your final edit.
*Effects, EQ, overdub, audio interface, and fader modes A-F are not available in 96 kHz.
It’s Your Monitor
Make It Your Mix
With six independent monitor outputs, the L-20R
enables musicians to create their own custom mix.
A dedicated output enables the FOH engineer to easily
switch between monitoring the main and sub mixes.
Using iPads with L-20 Control app, the FOH engineer and 6 musicians can control their own mix, including fader levels, EQ settings, channel effects, and more from anywhere in the venue.
* Communication at up to 10 meters is possible in an unobstructed indoor space with BTA-1 units.
“In the New York City club scene, the L-20R’s size and features make my life a lot easier. It’s got plenty of inputs. It’s got wireless control.
It’s got all I need.”
—Dennis McCalla, Engineer
