Zoom PodTrak P4
« on: August 06, 2020, 12:25:00 AM »
Announced earlier today, this looks like an interesting recorder for those on a budget and who do not need 48-192kHz or 24 bit, but still achieve 4 inputs. Price is $199.99 and ships in September. Will also run from a USB C power bank.

Measures 4.4" W x 6.1" H x 1.8" D, could fit in a large pocket, however the gain controls would be protruding a bit, not sure if you can lock them or not.

I could see some uses for it, but overall a lot of features not needed for our taping purposes.

4x phantom inputs @ $199 is certainly a deal

crippling it to 16/44 is a bit puzzling as all modern ADC chips handle higher bit/sample rates, but whatever
16/44 is not a limitation with decent preamps in front of it
