I have this unit. Great sound. Good pre amps with tons of headroom. When I record with Auria I hear a clicking type popping. So, I’m not sure what I can to to mitigate this issue.
When I use the Apogee One I don’t have these issues.....so....I’m a little disappointed.

Can you share how you've got it connected?

I can't seem to get it to cooperate. I'm using the zoom with auria pro on a 12.9 iPad pro and CCK 3

Oh sure! First off, I found I had the sample rate not synced up, so ensure that they are. Make sure the L12 is in class compliant mode. Then, I recall, all I did was make sure that USB return audio was on. Rail 9&10 are the return audio from the iPad. If the button is flashing, it’s not connected. Conversely, the connectivity is also indicated by a USB indicator, top right side, left of the “transport” controls. It will either show INT or USB.
I hope this will be of some help.
I would add that Zoom support was VERY responsive and very helpful via email.
Good luck!

Thanks!

I called zoom support and they gave me a flat "it won't work" as an answer. I was kinda bummed at that.

I'll double check my settings and give it another go!

Thanks!!!

Just an update...
I have a Zoom L-12 here for testing now and I can confirm that it definitely does indeed work very well with Auria.

As previously stated, the unit has to be set to 'Class Compliant Mode' and there are two sets of stereo returns that can be set from Auria's Output Matrix for monitoring.
Auria Master outs 1-2 show up on the L-12 as 'USB Audio Return 1-2 (sharing channel space with analog 9/10)
Auria Master outs 3-4 show up on the L-12 as 'USB Audio Return 3-4 (sharing channel space with analog 11/12)
Make sure to press the 'USB 1-2 / 3-4' button on the L-12 to enable the return and raise the fader.

Let me know if there any other questions about this device while I still have it.

Got mine working once they replaced it. I had a dud LCD display. As stated, it works really well. The USB returns function as they should, and it's really easy to lay down tracks on the L12 and transfer them over - or use it as a mixer and record directly to tracks in auria pro.
