Zoom - PodTrak P8 (Portable Multi-Track 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. The PodTrak P8 preamps also give you up to 70dB of gain which is sufficient to run a Shure SM7B or a RODE PodMic without the need for an external additional preamp like a Cloudlifter.

The Limiter is used to prevent distortion if the volume suddenly gets too loud.

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.

Compressor/DeEsser enables your voice to have more presence for that perfect studio podcast sound.

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