Touchscreen Controls

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

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.

Tone Adjustment

The Tone Adjustment can make your voice darker or brighter, for that perfect podcast voice.

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

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

Noise Reduction

In the On Air screen select Noise Reduction to decrease background noise by automatically turning down the mic levels for tracks not in use.


Colour-coded Workflow

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

Independent Outputs
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.

Professional Podcasting at your Fingertips

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.

On-air Button

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.


Crystal-clear Recording

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.*

Dedicated Channel for Phone Recording

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.


Take your Podcast Studio with You

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.

On-board Editing
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.

Audio Interface

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 PERFECT PODCAST PACK

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.

Zoom ZDM-1 Dynamic Microphone

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 large-diaphragm dynamic design captures smooth, broadcast-quality sound
  • Classic end-address style
  • Supercardioid polar pattern provides focused pickup and excellent isolation
  • High 135 dB SPL handling ensures clean recordings every time
  • 50 Hz to 18 kHz frequency response with tight bass and smooth highs enhances vocal tone for radio, podcasting, and more

  • Built-in humbucking circuit rejects electromagnetic interference
  • Balanced XLR output connector
  • All-metal body and grille stands up to daily use

Zoom ZHP-1 Over-Ear, Closed-Back Headphones

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.

  • High-sensitivity neodymium dynamic drivers provide a neutral, transparent sound and a frequency response of 10 Hz to 20 kHz
  • Self-adjusting headband and leatherette earpads ensure comfortable wearing and help your ears stay cool and dry
  • Over-ear, closed-back design prevents sound from your headphones bleeding into your microphone, keeping noise out so you can critically focus on editing and mixing
  • Long single-sided cable attaches to the earcup, and an included clasp keeps the cable securely in place
  • Rotating earcups allow for easy single-ear monitoring
  • Replaceable leatherette earpads extend the life of the headphones
  • Sturdy, lightweight construction
  • Includes a 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter

Zoom TPS-4 Tabletop Tripod Mic Stand

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.

ZDM-1 Windscreen

A custom-fitted windscreen protects the ZDM-1 microphone from breeze, breaths, and pops, giving you clean recordings without muffling your sound.

Two-Meter Mic Cable

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.
