Zoom Podtrak P4

(click image to visit website)

The PodTrak P4 has inputs for four XLR microphones, each with 70 dB of gain and switchable phantom power for condenser mics.

Plug your phone right into a dedicated TRRS input, or make use of the BTA-2 Bluetooth adapter (available separately for $50) to stream audio wirelessly from your smartphone.

Best Buy currently has these in stock.

If you’re talking to someone over VoIP, you can plug your Skype- or Zoom-enabled computer into a dedicated USB-C port. What’s more, you can combine two remote options at any one time: if you have one remote guest connecting over Bluetooth and another over your computer.

It has four pads for storing and triggering jingles, cues, and bumper music.

For multitrack recording, the PodTrak P4 offers an SD slot able to handle 512 GB of audio. You can record each XLR input, the remote input, and the soundboard all to their own individual files. The PodTrak P4 will even create a master stereo recording of your mix.

Here is the quick start guide. And here is the operation manual.

Got the device and posted a review of it. I answer some questions from Reddit and walk through the menu.
