  1. Bug: Wrong channel recorded

    OS: Windows 10
    Version: Hindenburg 1.82.2302

    I noticed the following behavior and I think, this is a bug:

    When I connect a Zoom H6 Fiel recorder to the computer and use the the H6 in as interface in multi track mode, I can choose different inputs for different tracks, for example Microphone 3 and 4 in Hindenburg for H6 channels 1 and 2 (XLR inputs).

    I can see the levels of both microphones in Hindenburg separately on both tracks, just as I would expect.

    But ony the first of the both channels is recorded on both tracks. The second microphone…

  2. Support for in-app browsing of Garageband sounds/loops

    The in app browser of media such as Garageband sounds and loops, or FinalCut sound effects, etc. is a handy feature of Apple's pro apps. It would be super helpful to be able to easily access these within Hindenburg.

  3. Freeze playhead and scroll tracks

    I would love fro be able to freeze the playhead and scroll the tracks. This way I can keep my eyes fixed on the playhead in the center and, when I stop playback to make an edit, I would know that the audio to be corrected is just to the left of the center of the screen. It would require much less eye and mouse movement.

  5. Smoother Scrolling

    Scrolling around in Hindenburg's editor is visually slow and choppy, I would love this smoothed out with hardware acceleration.

  6. Allow audio level to be increased more than +15 dB

    As a public affairs journalist, sometimes I have to rely on others for audio — court proceedings, for example — and sometimes it comes in way too low, even after increasing it the maximum 15 dB. In these cases, I could maximize the level, export, reimport, and increase the level again. But typically I just open the file in Adobe Audition and do the increase there.

    I'm sure there's a reason for the 15 dB cap, but it would be nice to be able to exceed it when necessary.

    Thanks for considering it!

  7. Silence detection

    Occasionally, when producing a podcast you leave a little bit of audio at the far right - you might have moved it there on purpose while editing. The result is your lovely podcast, which plays all the way through, then a big gap, then a little clip of audio.

    As a suggestion, when publishing or exporting a file, you could detect long periods of silence and place this in the dialog box at the end, as an advisory for editors. "For information: this audio contains 183 seconds of silence." That, alone, would be enough to at least notice that something…

  8. Drag view / jump half screen

    When editing a track (cutting out unnecessary repetitions, breaths, and such) the playhead sweeps over the region to be cut out, so one must scroll back to get the relevant part in view. Doing this with the scrollbar at the bottom is not easy - dragging the slider is too fast, clicking on the empty part of the scrollbar is too slow.
    I see two good solutions to this problem which could be implemented simultaneously:
    1. Some key + mouse drag transforms the cursor into a hand (like Space in Adobe Photoshop, or the Hand tool in Acrobat Reader), and…

  9. Add the exact time point where the track was cut for clipboard

    Hi,

    I'm currently running into a serious issue because I'm working with two distinct audio tracks that go hand in hand (an interview). I'm torn between just editing from the track or organizing everything into the clipboard first. The issue with the latter is I don't know how to sync my clips up later, especially when there's interjection. Currently, all the clipboard does is show how long the clip is (which isn't really important) instead of at what time the clip was cut (for example, 45 seconds). If I had that, I would know exactly how to put the puzzle…

  10. Move all markers 10-15 seconds earlier

    USE CASE: Recording in-person customer interviews with your mobile app -- which is awesome by the way.

    PROBLEM: my customer says something great. I add a marker. When I play back the audio from the marker, I always have to go backwards 10-15 seconds, because I set the marker after I realize something great was said, not before it. :) I have to do that with every marker made with the mobile device.

    OPPORTUNITY: I believe you would be the only recording application which actually solves this problem for journalist, marketers and others.

    if you solve the problem I would…

  11. Locking the Manuscript

    In an organisation that has multiple recording studios It is common to prepare the structure in advance, send it to a studio and after the recording someone does a quality check on the end product.
    One of those checks is very evident: checking if the structure of the book is intact.

    Hindenburg ABC has already a difference between a reading mode and edit mode on the manuscript but we believe we could gain more security if you could activate an overall lock on the entire manuscript. For example with a menu option, or with a lock button on the manuscript…

  12. Enable Win10 shortcut on Narration View window for moving to another monitor

    In a studio-environment it can be quite messy when you need to drag the Narration View window with the mouse to an external monitor for the reader in the cabin. You don't see that monitor, so it is a bit odd.

    Windows 10 has a set of very nice shortcuts for Window management. Although the shortcut for maximizing (Windows key + arrow up) works perfectly fine, the combination Windows key + SHIFT + arrow left/right doesn't.

    With Windows key + SHIFT + arrow left/right you can move a window between monitors. This is a very handy shortcut! This works with…

  14. Jump to previous/next marker

    Currently PgUp/PgDn navigates to the previous/next event. Often there are quite many of these events because of the numerous splices. It would be a nice feature to have a shortcut that only jumps to markers (and maybe cue points) ignoring splices in between.

  15. Using Logitech MX Master 2S thumb wheel with Hindenburg Journalist

    The ability of using the thumb wheel would be a nice feature for scrolling the audio. However, currently the rolling of the thumb wheel of the Logitech MX Master 2S mouse only moves the scroll box on the scrollbar, while the waveform display stays at the same position.

    Maybe there is just a small setting to be reconfigured for this to work.

  16. Full DAW for iOS

    As many media content providers are using the iPad in favour of a laptop, it would make perfect sense to offer a fully featured DAW.
    The success of apps such as Lumafusion and FilmicPro and Affinity photo are leading the way... but we are still waiting for the first serious iOS DAW

  17. Warning when overwriting a file when publishing

    I produce a podcast every day, and do this by trying to remember to "save as" a new file every day. I don't always remember.

    When publishing audio, Hindenburg never checks if you're overwriting a file that already exists. This is not what normally happens on MacOS or Windows - you're normally told "do you want to overwrite this file?" or something - and this behaviour ought to be the default within Hindenburg, to my mind.

    (I can see the merits of being able to switch an error message like this off, too).

  18. Support for double-ender recordings (SquadCast, Ringr, Zencastr, etc.)

    Since quality from Skype and Google Hangouts is often dodgy (not studio quality), and not fool-proof (e.g. difficult to get secondary, back-up recordings), I use SquadCast and Ringr as my preferred platforms for double-ender recordings. It would be fantastic if Hindenburg Journalist PRO could natively support dealing and integrating with one or more of these platforms.

  20. "Selection Mode"

    When first cutting a recorded interview, usually there is no need for selecting and dragging regions. The main activity is selecting areas for editing, splitting areas and cutting. However, the primary function of the mouse button is still the selecting of regions - you have to go to some empty place (often the only option is the thin area* separating two tracks) for the cursor to change into selection mode.

    So it would be very useful to have a shortcut (like SomeKey+mouse drag) to put the mouse cursor in selection mode, or even a dedicated Selection Mode, when only the…
