Zoom PodTrak P8 Portable Multitrack Podcast Recorder

PODCASTING SIMPLIFIED

The Zoom PodTrak P8 is easy to use and can handle the most ambitious podcasts. With all the functions you need to record, edit and mix, the PodTrak P8 is your complete podcast studio.

TOUCHSCREEN CONTROLS

The color touchscreen interface makes monitoring, adjusting, and onboard editing seamless. Everything you need is a touch away.

Mic Preamp Slider

The Mic Preamp Slider allows you to dial in the level or gain of each mic. Make adjustments until the signal is peaking in the “Good Range”. Peaking in the “Over Range” section can cause distortion in your sound.

Low Cut

The Low Cut reduces low-frequency noise that is present in almost any recording environment, whether it’s air conditioning, street sounds, vibrations, and other sources.


COLOR-CODED

The P8’s color-coded inputs, outputs, and controls make on-the-fly adjustments a breeze, keeping you focused on the discussion.

WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY

Use the optional Zoom BTA-2* Bluetooth Adapter to wirelessly connect your phone to record remote guests.

ADDED PRODUCTION VALUE

Make your podcast sound professional by triggering sound effects, intro music, jingles, pre-recorded interviews, and more, with nine multi-colored sound pads. Choose from 13 pre-loaded sounds or load your own. Create up to four banks of sound for a total of 36 sound clips at your fingertips.
