  1. Close file without closing Hindenburg

    It would be nice to be able to close a session without having to Exit from Hindenburg.

    Most similar programs let you do that.

    Thanks!

    • Text/Narration parallel to the audio wave

      In times when more and more audio transcriptions in better quality is available (e.g. Trint), it would be nice to combine these transcriptions with its time stamps and attach them to the audio in Hindenburg exactly in time, like it is possible in Audacity with captions.

      • Add ability to preview an edit

        Sound forge lets you make a selection and preview the edit (without the selection) by using ctrl-k. Is this available in Hindenburg? If not, it would be nice!!!

        • ASIO Support

          ASIO support so that audio interfaces with multiple inputs could be used would make Hindenburg the ideal DAW for many podcasters. I record 3 microphones via a focusrite scarlet 18i8. I would love to use Hindenburg for its spoken word focus, but it currently can not fit my recording needs.

          • Allow an option to publish to Blubrry

            Create an option to publish to Blubrry, another podcast media hosting service. Libsyn and Soundcloud aren't the only ones out there!

            • Support for ContourDesign Shuttle

              Hello. I was attempting to get a Contour ShuttlePRO v2 working under Journalist.

              http://www.contourdesign.com/US/product/shuttlepro-v2/

              Normally it's possible to create a profile with unsupported software via keyboard shortcuts. The edit point controls in Journalist aren't really functionally compatible with the jog dials. Any chance either directly supporting the Shuttle SDK or having movement shortcuts included that are more functional with this product? Or if you can release a functional Profile for the software driver.

              The SDK from Contour can be requested in the Shuttle FAQ section here.

              http://www.contourdesign.com/US/support/

              Thanks for your time. This device really makes quick edits easy under other…

              • Recording more than two tracks on a skype/call record

                I use the skype/call record feature often, it's helpful and wonderful! However, you can only record the call track + one other track. I often am recording two hosts interviewing a guest via Skype/call recorder and end up having to set up a separate audio recorder for the second host and sync it up later. That's a bummer :( It'd be awesome if we were able to record the call/skype on one track and then multiple mics on multiple tracks!

                • More icons

                  Loving the program
                  but it would be nice to have edit icons such as 'Shuffle Trim' or 'Slide audio inside region' on the top edit bar and Loop, Play selection' and 'Rehearse' icons on the bottom play section

                  • Upload to Amazon S3

                    I'm thinking of using Amazon S3 for my audio files. Since S3 doens't have traditional ftp access, it would be great if Hindenburg supported S3 upload.

                    • Different types of non-linear fades?

                      I love Hindenburg. One thing I would use all the time is the option to use different shapes of fades, besides the linear fade that currently exists. Right now, I play with the fade shapes by hand and it takes ~30s to make a nice S fade. What if it only took 2 seconds! Any plans on that for the future? Thanks!

                        • Ability to hide tracks from the workspace and mixer window

                          Ever since Avid's move to a subscription based ownership model I've been trying out DAWs to take over from ProTools. I do a lot of work producing radio programs so Hindenburg caught my interest. I just downloaded the Trial and am pretty impressed with Hindenburg's easy interface. I figured out most things in a few clicks and only had to look up a couple of things... BUT here are a couple ideas that would make my life easier.
                          1) the ability to hide tracks. I like to use a Master channel for my metering and limiting plug-ins. But once I've…

                          • Skype to Skype - Good to Great

                            Being able to record phone calls via Skype is good but it would great if we could record conversations Skype user to Skype user. The fidelity is superior using VOIP than using the phone system. i would still want to be able to record my studio mic into the transmit side.

                            I hope that makes sense.

                            Thanks

                              • Templates for ID3 Tagging

                                It would be great if you could add templates for the Podcast ID3 tagging under properties... there are just so many items to fill out and for episodes of a show, that is a silly amount of work to do over and over again. Not only that, but it is hard to remember exactly how you did the previous episode without pulling it up.

                                This means I need to export the mp3, use the ID3 Tag Editor, look at a previous episode, etc. and can't just push directly from Hindy to libsyn.

                                  Often in one session I end up working with 20 tracks. I would love the ability to see them all on the screen at the same time. Currently there's a fairly large Minimum track height. Can that easily be changed?

                                    In my workflow, I like to step away from the editor and look at the story as it stands on paper, to get a different perspective about its flow. One way I do this is to take screengrabs of the timeline at a level of zoom that shows the clip names, then print them out... it would be SO much faster and better if I could print a simple text file that listed the clips in the workspace in the order they appear - maybe even a printable version of the workspace? The most important thing would be that the…

                                      • Ctrl+arrows = super speed rew/ff

                                        Hi, I'd like an option, for example ctrl + arrow keys, that would speed up ff/rew. Sometimes I want to run through audio faster than it's doing now. A modifier key (ctrl) that speeds it up a lot would be great.

                                        Thanks!

                                          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.
