Purpose-built for producing polished multi-person podcasts anywhere you go, the Zoom PodTrak P4 is a cost-effective portable multitrack podcast recorder that lets you quickly record up to four 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.
From the intuitive, tactile controls to the plentiful battery life and powerful audio processing functions, the PodTrak P4 is well equipped to help you record or stream pristine audio for panel podcasts. Dynamic and condenser mics, customizable sound pads, call-ins via your smartphone or computer, and independent headphone outs; the PodTrak P4 can manage everything you need a podcast production station to do.
Extra touches including built-in limiters and low-cut filters for enhancing your tracks, an integrated mix-minus function to prevent echo and feedback for remote guests, and multiple powering methods make the PodTrak a truly powerful all-in-one solution for podcasting.
Four High-Gain Mic Inputs
Headphone Mixes for You and Your Guests
Echo-Free Remote Call-Ins
Knowing how frequently podcasters collaborate with remote guests, Zoom integrated two ways to accommodate call-ins—plug your smartphone directly into the 3.5mm TRRS phone port, connect a computer via USB to pipe in the audio from your conferencing software of choice, or do both at the same time to feature two remote guests.
Whether you use TRRS, USB, or both, the PodTrak P4 automatically prevents echo and feedback with its built-in mix-minus feature; your remote guests will never be distracted by hearing their own voice echo back to them.
Supports BTA-2 for Wireless Remote Guests
Assignable Sound Pads with Preset Sounds
Instant Access to Gain and Mute for Each Input
Record up to 10 Tracks Simultaneously
SD Card Recording and Audio Interface Functionality
Designed for truly convenient portability, the PodTrack P4 can record directly to an SDHC card (up to 32GB capacity) or an SDXC card (up to 512GB capacity). A 4GB card will yield over three hours of 16-bit / 44.1 kHz 4-channel recording time using the BWF-compliant WAV format for uncompressed audio quality and industry-standard file compatibility. Note that media cards are available separately, and larger capacity cards may increase startup times.
Alternatively, use the PodTrak P4 as a 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface (at 16-bit / 44.1 kHz) with your Mac/Windows computer or iOS/Android mobile device (separately available Apple Camera Connection Kit is required for use with iOS devices).
