Potential for improvement exists

Gert51, 24.09.2018
I will use the L-20 mostly in the rehearsal room for tape recordings. With the 22 tracks, all instruments and vocals can be individually recorded and edited in the home studio with Cubase and mastered.

The handling of the recording is super easy, especially because you can do without a PC in the rehearsal room and can handle everything via one device. When recording, we use the L-20 as a mixer and go through Main in the PA. The existing monitor outputs allow an individual mix for each musician - depending on your preference on headphones or eg an active monitor box.

This is the main purpose of the L-20.

Unfortunately, it is only partially usable in my studio as an audio interface, because a high-frequency sound is transmitted via the USB interface. Although I was able to reduce this interference signal for normal practice by using a high-quality USB cable and weakening the high tone with an EQ. But a reasonable mixing and mastering is unfortunately not possible with me. The use of a Line Isolation Box (PLI-02) could not solve the interference signal,

The class-compliant mode works for me also limited. Although the app will run on iOS 10.3, it crashes on my iPad with iOs 10.3.3. On a 64-bit iPad with iOS 11, the application runs smoothly. I have already reported the error to ZOOM on 09.09.2018, but have not received any feedback until today. Since the new iPad belongs to my wife, I may have to invest here too. Unfortunately, the graphic equalizer in the L-20 can only be used in class-compliant mode.

The explanations in the manual are kept short - but well understandable and sufficient. Nevertheless, I have understood some functions only after intensive study of the block diagram and try.

The internal effects of the L-20 are not that important to me. But they make a good impression and are fully adequate for monitor purposes.

Unfortunately, the effect controls of the channel strip can not be applied to the master. An adaptation to the room is possible only conditionally (or via the PA). Therefore, we will probably not use the L-20 as a mixer during performances.

Class desk with potential!

Joergsen, 16.11.2018
After I became aware of the Zoom L-20, it had happened to me. The good sound in various test reports, I can fully confirm. The operation is very easy and functional. Is with me in a small studio environment in use and for a fixed keyboard wiring super. In the recording area, I hope that I hope with a firmware update the ability to routes inputs to other tracks. This represents a considerable shortcoming. But since Zomm has already made good on his little brother, I have hope. :-) And even for the now offered, I think it's really great!
