Zoom PodTrak P8 Portable 8-Channel Multitrack Podcast Recorder
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.
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.
The Limiter is used to prevent distortion if the volume suddenly gets too loud.
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.
The Tone Adjustment can make your voice darker or brighter, for that perfect podcast voice.
Compressor/DeEsser enables your voice to have more presence for that perfect studio podcast sound.
In the On Air screen select Noise Reduction to decrease background noise by automatically turning down the mic levels for tracks not in use.
The P8’s color-coded inputs, outputs, and controls make on-the-fly adjustments a breeze, keeping you focused on the discussion.
The PodTrak P8 features six of Zoom’s best-sounding mic inputs, providing pristine audio for you and your guests. With up to 70dB of gain the P8 can handle the most demanding microphones.*
*Including the Shure® SM7B and Heil® PR 40.
THIS CALL WILL BE RECORDED
The P8 features a dedicated channel for recording phone calls. Channel six can be switched to USB mode to record your guests from your computer. Both options include a Mix-Minus feature to prevent echo and feedback for the caller.
OUTPUTS FOR EVERY OCCASION
The P8 features six independent headphone outputs, each with individual volume control. For professional playback, the P8’s main outputs allow you to connect your studio monitors.
