Here's what Zoom says about the PodTrak P4 Podcast Recorder:
The ultimate compact and affordable recorder for podcasting, Zoom's PodTrak P4 makes it easy to capture professional audio wherever you’re recording your podcasts.
High Quality Mic Inputs
The P4’s mic inputs feature Zoom’s professional quality preamps. Providing up to 70dB of gain, the P4 can be used with the most demanding of microphones.
Headphones for Everyone
With 4 independent headphone outputs, each with a dedicated volume control - everyone can hear it all!
You and your guests are not always together. That’s why the P4 makes it easy to incorporate remote interviews. Just connect your phone to the P4 with a TRRS cable. Or connect your computer via USB, using your favorite conferencing software.
With the P4’s built-in mix-minus feature, distracting echo and feedback will automatically be eliminated. You can also use the optional Zoom BTA-2 Bluetooth Receiver (sold separately) to wirelessly connect your phone to record remote guests.
Produce Like a Pro
The Zoom PodTrak P4’s customizable sound pads can instantly trigger music, ads, jingles, and even pre-recorded interviews. Easily load your own sounds or choose from 11 pre-recorded presets.
Go Where the Story Takes You
The P4 operates up to 4 hours on 2 AA batteries, or you can also use a USB battery for extended recording time.
The P4 is also a 2-input, 2-output audio interface, allowing you to record directly to your computer, Android or iOS (Apple Lightning to USB camera adapter required) device. Additionally you can stream your podcast.
