  1. Two-way compatibility with Descript

    Exporting to Descript - get with Descript so they can directly import a Hindy project file as-is...especially multi-track files and having them go into Descript as a sequence - stay mulit-track - rather than having to break them apart and then reassemble them in Descript would be great. Also, if one could publish straight from Descript to a Hindy project file, all the better, of course. The more seamless this can be, the better. One thought...if I could do everything Descript does from inside Hindy, no import/exporting, even better. Can Descript be a plug-in for Hindy if we pay for…

  2. Devise a way to filter speaker-to-mic feedback out of a recording

    We had a guest on a Zoom interview podcast, and she only had her computer speakers and microphone to use. Whenever she was silent, our voices came out her speakers and into the microphone, and went round and round, as well as on to the other tracks. It took FOREVER to clean that up in Hindenburg by hand. Isn't there some comparative function that can cancel out that noise, but leave the rest when I put the 3 tracks side by side? I think there has to be some delay consideration, as well as decay and other things, but in…

  3. 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!

  4. Mute Button

    Please add a mute channel button to use while recording. Something similar to Zencastr. This would allow us to mute coughs, etc., on the fly while recording sound.

  5. Sonix compatibility

    Sorry for double-posting: forgot I had this option too.

    I am an old, enthusiastic user of HJ, but a new, happy user of Sonix[dot]ai, and would love the ability to export from there into a non-destructive .nhsx format (which you can currently do for Adobe Auduition, etc).

  6. Sample Projects for practice

    I would like to Journalist Pro have some practice exercises created so new users could get some hands on experience. These projects would include the audio files with basic instructions. Here are some examples that I would like to see.
    Radio news story with one actuality included
    Radio news story with two actualities included
    Radio News feature with multiple interviews
    Radio Commercial :60 with narration, background music and ambience
    * Five minute mini podcast to edit from start to finish
    These examples I believe would allow new users to learn some valuable skills as the complexity of the assignments increased…

  7. Smoother Scrolling

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

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Dropping markers from mobile devices.

    Would love to be able to listen to my recording on my iphone and with the simple touch of a button, drop markers where I need to make edits and then import those markers (linked to timecode?) into my hindenburg edit software for my final editing. This would be a great streamline to workflow because I could listen to my recorded session for necessary edits while driving.

  12. Two details to further improve publication in Spreaker

    Thank you for implementing the Spreaker publication and for the improvements. I think two details are missing to make it perfect and practical:
    1.- Allow automatic publication of pictures. Both the general and the chapters.
    2. Allow the automatic publication of the description field.

  13. Session import: option to specify into existing tracks or new tracks and to specify whether effects should be imported as well

    I think the session import feature is stellar. However, I wish there was an option to specify whether the imported tracks are to be imported into existing tracks or should create new tracks. Additionally, if they are to be imported into new tracks, it would be great to have the option to also import any effects and settings.

    Also, if it were possible to import across sample rates, that would be great.

    It’s probably an edge case. But it would be nice.

    Still convinced Hindenburg is the best :-)

  14. 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…

  15. Reference source files instead of copy to project folder

    I'm producing podcasts and notice that my source files (intro music, interview recordings, audio tags, etc.) are being duplicated in the project folder. Since I record ~1hr multitrack interviews, this adds up.
    It would be great to have Hindenburg reference the source files similar to Final Cut Pro X or Lightroom.

  16. PDF support for book importation for narrator

    I've received a book in PDF format I'm to narrate. Converting it to epub makes it unreadable (images of the chapter text extend beyond the screen).
    Importing PDF and .doc files should be added to the narrator software. As it is, it's unusable for me :(
    Also - add
    Import > Audio

           > Book/Manuscript
    

    into the "import" submenu and get rid of "open" for the manuscript. You call it "import" in your tutorials. It should be in the "import" function, not an "open" function.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
