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.

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.

Tone Adjustment

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

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.


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

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.

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.

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.

Wireless Connectivity

Use the optional Zoom BTA-2 Bluetooth Adapter to wirelessly connect your phone to record remote guests.

Added Production Value

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.

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.

Editing Options

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.

Take Your 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.

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.
