Absolutely great for what it does
CDStewArt, 28.09.2020
I bought this to record a wide variety of voiceovers and musical instruments on battery power, but it has become my main audio interface for my Linux computer. It does everything that is advertised very well. I can record high-quality voice-overs on battery in a portable vocal booth. I can take it with me to record several instruments or mics out of a studio environment.
I think it really has no cons, with the slight exception of having only one USB port for both data and power, which I had to work around to use as my interface for Linux.
In short, if you are after a general and versatile recorder for voice, podcasts, instruments, small bands, etc, this has proven excellent for me.

Excellent value
Richie G., 06.07.2020
I bought this as an alternative to the Rode Caster Pro, as a cheaper alternative, although the Rode has a nicer look and feel with big buttons, a huge advantage to the Zoom LiveTrack is it doesn't need its own separate psu when connected to the computer. I'm still getting to grips with much of its features. yesterday I did my radio broadcast through the zoom Livetrack device, worked well.
features - could prob do with a few more to bring up to Rode's standard like mix minus availability on usb & all channels not just phone.

Lovely modern mixer/audio card
Fabrixio, 03.03.2021
Very good mixer, flexible, low noise, and usable as an USB audio card, where all the channels can be seen individually. Very practical for gigging with friends, and recording everyone individually, or just the master outputs.
Also works pretty well with Jamulus, to participate to online jam sessions, alone or with friends connected to the mixer. I expect it to work equally well with other similar softwares.

I am very satisfied by it, the L-8 has become an invaluable companion of my home music setup. Better than this would be only if it fully supported 96kHz in USB mode.

Exactly what I needed
Timothy Dowd, 29.01.2021
I am a mobile Vlogger and interview people in the beach bars in Tenerife, have a group of 4 on the balcony on Wednesdays. I needed a connection to my iPad for mics and music/hits.
the Zoom L8 satisfies all my criteria. Individual EQ per channel, TRRS connection to iPad with Mix-Minus for online guests who cannot make it to the island because of the pandemic.
I can record the whole thing locally, including the online guest as separate tracks for editing into a podcast, and send the Master mix audio to the iPad which then uses Streamyard to go live on YouTube, Facebook, Twitch etc.
I've seen reviews saying it is a plastic build but I have dropped this twice and not even a scratch probably because it is so light.
