    • Change Shortcuts/Commands

      I would love to change the keyboard settings and use my own shortcuts. Is there a way to change the commands on Hindenburg (currently trial version, Windows).
      Thanks!
      Sandra

        • Return to last edit point when opening a recent session

          When I open a recent session, I almost always want it to open to my last edit point so I can continue where I left off. Instead, it always opens at the beginning of the session. That means I either have to remember to place a marker where I left off or I have to write down the time stamp. Or more often I forget to do either and have to go searching for my last edit point!

          This could be fixed by showing a dialogue box when you close the session. There could be a check box to return…

          • add feature "share to webdav" for field-recorder

            As a journalist i'm very picky about who I do share my data with (even indirectly). So I really don't want to upload my recordings to soundcloud (and neither i'd do with dropbox, google-drive, etc).
            if you would add an option under "share" to upload recordings to a free-to-pick hoster, using the webdav-protocol it would help much. like i have set-up my own little cloud (using nextcloud/owncloud) to exactly control access of my data. and - as a nice side-effect - they stay with me!

            so the feature-request is: pls add an option to upload files to nextcloud (aka webdav)

            • Add navpoints on audio import

              Often, when producing DTBs, my team is dealing with audio files which has already been logically organized according to a book structure element, whether that is primary headings, or pages. What would be an incredible addition from our perspective is the ability to place navpoints in bulk at the beginning of each audio file.

              An example case would be creating a DAISY 2.02 DTB in which the source audio files each represent a page of text. In the existing HABC build, a user would have to Tab->Click "Page" (or key-press) to add each nav element.

              I'm happy to discuss this…

              • Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

                Custom keyboard shortcuts are the way to streamline the workflow. So far, I find the predefined shortcuts clumsy and awkward. I know you're product is different, but if there's one thing you can emulate from Adobe Audition, it's the ability to create custom keyboard shortcuts. that's going to be a game changer.

                • MIDI or HUI control

                  My workflow would greatly improve if I could use a control surface/mixer interface with Hindenburg. Most of them use MIDI to connect (e.g. behringer, presonus faderport, etc.). It's incredibly disappointing that software this expensive has no compatibility with any of the control surfaces I use.

                  • View > Cue Points

                    The menu item View > Markers does not show Cue Points which is a pity. I propose inserting a new menu item View > Cue Points which shows a list of all cue points.

                    • Use Multiple Cores for Book Exporting

                      Having observed many a book exported in HABC (NLS), I've noticed that Hindy uses a single core to encode audio files even if there are multiple cores available (see attached). I think it would speed up the process (and reduce the thumb-twiddling) if Hindy could make use of all available cores.

                      • Mixing Stereo Down to Mono

                        Instead of splitting stereo tracks to the left and right, I wish there were a way to combine them together, "mixing it down to mono," for a fuller sound. Audacity does this reasonably well.

                        • Resync tracks

                          You know how it goes: you're editing a multitrack file, think you're deleting portions from all the tracks and five minutes later realize you'd only activated one track, thus pushing much of the project out of sync.

                          Cmd-z to the rescue, but that means losing all the cuts you've made.

                          So what about a way to restore the sync between two or more audio files? I'm not quite sure how to implement it UI/UX wise, but I'm pretty sure that even a clumsy version would be super helpful.

                          Very preliminary sketch of the result attached in clumsy screenshots.

                            • Detect and delete silence

                              When working with separate tracks of several remote guests on a podcast or talk show it is essential to delete "silent" parts of the track when someone isn't talking. Sometimes these parts are not silent at all (because of a lot of background noise or leaking audio from headphones), but that makes it even more important to have them removed.

                              I would like Hindi to be able to identify and insert breakpoints around these sections automatically and remove them upon request. That would make my life soooo much easier.

                              • Affiliate Program

                                Podcasters are in love with affiliate programs to monetize their stuff... Every podcaster should be using your software to edit... it is awesome.

                                This is a cool service I recommend - several companies I like use it: https://www.refersion.com?rfsn=280857.7b3ac (yes it is an affiliate link)

                                Hope to see you set one up... so when I create the ultimate podcast course I can monetize it ;-)

                                  Thanks for all the input.

                                  Unfortunately we still don’t have the resources to get an affiliate program in place. However, we will be moving to a new payment solution in the next months that will have an affiliate option built in, so once we have that daunting project in place, we will look into the implementation of the affiliate program option.

                                  Thanks for your continued support everyone.

                                  • Template projects

                                    It would be great to be able to choose from a series of templates when starting a new project. Ideally I'd like to designate an existing project as a template. Hindenburg would then remove all audio that is not currently used in the editor or clipboard to minimize the size of that project. That would greatly improve my workflow.

                                      • Join clips

                                        Joining two clips on the same track, say by clicking the line between them, could really help to keep the tracks "clean" and simple.

                                        When you have to move a section it would make it easier when you only have to move one large bit in stead of 5 smaller.

                                        Think of it as a permanent Group.
