The Zoom PodTrak P8 Portable Multitrack Podcast Recorder 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.
This portable multitrack podcast recorder lets you quickly record up to six mics, handle 2 echo-free remote call-ins simultaneously, trigger sound samples, and provide separate headphone feeds for all your guests, all at the same time and with refreshing simplicity, thanks to the large full-colour LCD touchscreen.
From the intuitive, tactile controls to the powerful audio processing and editing functions, the PodTrak P8 is well equipped to help you record, stream, and export pristine audio for complex panel podcasts. Dynamic and condenser mics, customizable sound pads, call-ins via your smartphone or computer, and independent headphone outs; the PodTrak P8 can manage everything you need a podcast production station to do.
Extra touches including per-channel tone controls, compression/de-essing, limiters, low-cut filters, and noise reduction—all stellar tools for achieving professional-sounding tracks, an integrated mix-minus function to prevent echo and feedback for remote guests, and multiple powering methods make the PodTrak P8 a truly powerful all-in-one solution for podcasting.
The colour touchscreen interface makes monitoring, adjusting and onboard editing seamless. Everything you need is a touch away.
Zoom P8’s touchscreen display can be set to any one of six languages. Choose from English, French, German, Spanish, Italian or Japanese
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 Tone Adjustment can make your voice darker or brighter, for that perfect podcast voice.
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.
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 colour-coded inputs, outputs, and controls make on-the-fly adjustments a breeze, keeping you focused on the discussion.
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.
Supports Wireless Connectivity (optional)
Use the optional Zoom BTA-2 Bluetooth Adapter, available separately, to wirelessly connect your phone to record remote guests.
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 sounds for a total of 36 sound clips at your fingertips.
When a channel’s ON AIR is disabled, you can still hear the tracks through your headphones, but they won’t be recorded, or go through speakers or USB. Helpful when having sidebar conversations or prepping your guests during breaks.
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.*
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.
When recording outside the studio, the P8 provides up to two hours of recording with four AA batteries or connect a USB power supply for extended use.
With the P8’s onboard editing, easily trim, split and fade audio clips to produce a finished episode. You can also transfer track files to your computer for a final mix.
A USB-C port allows the PodTrak P8 to function as an audio interface when connected to a computer for recording and live streaming.
The Zoom ZDM-1 Podcast Mic Pack with Headphones, Windscreen, XLR, and Tabletop Stand bundles all the essentials you'll need to complete your home or mobile podcasting studio—a microphone, headphones, a tabletop mic stand, a mic cable, and more.
The Zoom ZDM-1 dynamic mic and its custom windscreen help you record your voice with full, broadcast-quality tone and minimal noise from breaths and room ambience while the ZHP-1 closed-back headphones ensure transparent audio reproduction for critical listening. For simple and convenient setup of the mic, the ZDM-1 Podcast Mic Pack also includes an XLR mic cable and a tabletop tripod stand.
The ZDM-1 Podcast Mic Pack includes a broadcast-style dynamic mic, professional closed-back headphones, an adjustable tabletop mic stand, windscreen and 2-meter mic cable.
Featuring a large-diaphragm dynamic mic capsule, the ZDM-1 captures your voice with smooth broadcast character. With its high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) handling and an internal shock mount, you’ll always be heard loud and clear.
It is tuned to deliver a robust vocal tone with smooth highs and tight lows, ideal for podcasters, radio show announcers, rappers, and singers. The large-diaphragm dynamic capsule utilizes a super-cardioid pickup pattern to effectively reduce ambient sound such as room noise at the sides of the mic. To isolate the pickup element from handling noise, vibrations, and rumble, the ZDM-1 employs an integrated shock-absorbing mechanism. The ZDM-1's integral humbucking circuit improves the signal-to-noise ratio by inhibiting electromagnetic interference from common sources such as wireless devices, power lines, computer displays, and more.
The all-metal body and grille afford ruggedness and durability for reliable use session after session. The ZDM-1 includes a pivoting mic stand mount for easy positioning and a custom windscreen for attenuation of plosives and breath noise.
The Zoom ZHP-1 are over-ear headphones designed to deliver a neutral, transparent sound for music tracking, editing, and mixing applications, location recording, and monitoring film sound on set. The 40mm neodymium dynamic drivers provide high sensitivity and a wide frequency response of 10 Hz to 20 kHz while the closed-back design enhances acoustic isolation.
Thanks to the self-adjusting headband and replaceable leatherette earpads, the ZHP-1 offer comfort and a fit that accommodates a variety of head sizes. The earcups are rotatable to allow easy single-ear monitoring for vocal sessions and quick signal checks.
The detachable single-sided cable is terminated with a 3.5mm TRS mini plug for compatibility with mobile devices and portable audio recorders, and a 1/4" adapter is included for hookup to audio interfaces, headphone amps, and mixers.
The height-adjustable TPS-4 Tripod is great at your desk or on the go. The durable metal threading holds up to heavy use, while the lightweight folding legs make it easy to pack and take with you.
Its universal 5/8"-27 thread is made of metal to ensure durability while accommodating most mic clips, shock mounts, and integral mic threads. The height of the TPS-4 can be adjusted from 3.85 to 5" via a simple twist clutch for optimal placement.
A custom-fitted windscreen protects the ZDM-1 microphone from breeze, breaths, and pops, giving you clean recordings without muffling your sound.
The mic pack also includes a two-meter (6.56 ft.) XLR microphone cable with shielding that protects your recordings from interference, and durable connectors that won’t wear out.
The Zoom ZDM-1 Podcast Mic Pack comes with a free download license for Steinberg’s WaveLab Cast software. WaveLab Cast helps you to finalize your project with a wide range of comprehensive editing, mixing, and refinement tools.
WaveLab Cast connects you directly with podcast directories, such as Spreaker or Podbean*. You can upload episodes quickly, plus directly create and publish RSS feeds.
*Additional licenses may be required.
WaveLab Cast supports up to 96KHz audio quality and includes a high-end re-sampler. RestoreRig removes noise and unwanted sounds. You can assemble new files using the snap functions and crossfade options. Once you’re done, export your sound files in any popular audio format.
