The Zoom PodTrak P8 gives you an easy to use, complete podcast studio capable of handling the most ambitious podcasts. Boasting all the functions you need to record, edit and mix; the PodTrak P8 is the perfect solution for any podcaster!

Touch Screen Controls

With a colour touchscreen interface, the PodTrak P8 makes monitoring, adjusting and audio editing seamless. With every setting you need only a touch away. Firstly, the Mic Preamp Slider allows you to dial in the desired level of gain for each mic. Make adjustments until the signal is in the perfect range, and avoid any distortion or clipping. There’s also a limiter for preventing distortion if the volume does suddenly get too loud.

On top of that, the Low Cut option reduces low-frequency noise that you’ll find in almost every recording environment. Whether its air conditioning, cars driving past, or vibrations, turning this on can help add that extra finish to your sound. While the Tone Adjustment options allow you to make your voice darker or brighter, so you can find the perfect podcasting voice.

Then you’ve got the compressor/de esser that again allows you to give your voice more presence for the perfect studio sound. Finally, Noise Reduction settings allow you to automatically decrease background noise by automatically turning don the mic levels for tracks not currently in use.

Colour Coded

The PodTrak P8 features colour-coded inputs, outputs and controls. Making on the fly adjustments a breeze and keeping you focus on what’s important, the conversation.

Crystal Clear Recordings

Additionally, the PodTrak P8 features 6 of the best-sounding Zoom mic preamps. Ensuring you enjoy pristine audio quality for both you and your guests. It also supports up to 70dB of gain so it’s capable of handling even the most demanding microphones.

Phone Calls
