Zoom Livetrak L-12 headphone outputs

Postby olibc » Thu Aug 30, 2018 2:14 pm

Hi,

I would like to know if someone tried to use active monitors on independent headphone outputs in the L-12.
Is this technically possible or recommended?
Do I need some DI (or something) between?

We are four members in a band. The main use of the L-12 would be for small rehearsal using active speakers for monitoring.

I am asking because the Livetrak L-20 has a button to switch headphone or line level for the independent headphone outputs.

Thanks a lot

I have, and it worked fine. I was using it with active HK Dart wedges. I can't remember how the levels were placed, but it definitely worked.

I missed this topic!

I've used them as well with monitors and they are usable like that.

Thanks for your answers.

I was told using active monitors in headphones output could produce a loss of quality or even distortion. So I wanted to know if people in "real" environment has notice some problems with the sound quality coming from active monitors or some other issues.
