  1. 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…

  2. Export all markers as text file

    Dear Hindenburg staff,

    many thanks for your great product. I often use it while putting together pieces for German public radio.

    I have a very simple request. Would it be possible to make all markers exportable as text files, not just the chapter markers?

    I often use markers for notetaking. I know that you can find them in the nhsx-File, so I'm wondering how difficult it would be to export them directly in the software.

    Reaper, for example, can export its marker list as both txt and csv. Basically, at the moment, I listen to my recordings in Reaper, and…

  3. Reverse a section

    I play songs for broadcast that have sections with explicit language. Would be great if I could reverse those sections so the music could stay in key and on tempo.

  4. Improved Rehearse with loop and fixed focus

    I use the Rehearse function all the time, but setting the correct boundaries for the final cut often requires dozens of replays. It would be nice to have the option to specify a "post-roll" value, and have the Rehearse function loop endlessly through the selected area from pre-roll to post-roll.
    The other part of my suggestion concerns focus. While rehearsing, one fiddles with the boundary markers, so its gets a bit annoying when they get out of view while the playhead sweeps through. So an option to lock the view on any part of the audio (the selected area, or…

  5. Auto backup

    Provide the option for 'Auto-backup'. Include settings for how often you would like to save the session automatically.

  7. 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.

  8. Tooltip for Stereo (L/R) panning

    This is a rather simple but helpful one:

    Aso of now (build 2182), we can achieve left/right stereo panning by using a simple slider. That's great.
    But to do this precisely or symmetrically, one has to count pixels on that slider.
    I'd like to see some sort of simple tooltip to help us with that. Something like:
    100% Left ... 1% Left ... Center (or 0%) ... 1% Right ... 100% Right

    That's all.

  9. Allow an option to publish to Spreaker

    There is other services than Souncloud. Add Spreaker to publish will be great ;-)

  11. Noise Reduction

    I get that you have to make money and one way to get people using the product is to offer an inexpensive version (Journalist) and hope they'll upgrade ... but it seems to me that you don't include the Noise Reduction tool in Journalist. The free program Audacity has it. So I find myself removing noise in Audacity then loading Hindenburg. To me, when it can be done for free, it doesn't make sense to not include it in Journalist. Noise Reduction would seem to be a fairly standard requirement.

  12. 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.

  13. Stem Export

    Hi there. I really enjoy working with Hindenburg. One feature I would love to see is stem export. I do all my edits, tweak eq, compression and all that, but would like to export the stems of the project for archiving, as I delete my RAW files once a project is done.

    Thanks

  14. Increase the number of effects

    So it looks like I'm the only one with this problem:

    I would like to use more than 4 effects / VST plug ins:

    Noise Reduction (Reaper ReaFir)
    Noise Gate
    EQ / Voice Profiler
    Compressor
    De Esser

  15. Fix "save as"

    Currently when I use an existing project as a template for a new one Hindenburg only adds a new session file ("Project.nhsx"), not a new File directory ("Project Files"). That makes it impossible (or at least risky to the uninformed user) to save the new session file in another directory. It makes it also harder to share a project, as the File directory is cluttered with files which may or may not be needed after "saving as".

  17. Change height of tracks individually

    It would be great to be able to change the height of tracks individually to minimize their visual space in the edit window. Example -- a track of raw tape back up -- just to have a linear reference -- but I 99% of the time I don't need to see it expanded.

  18. MacBook Pro Touch Bar Support

    I noticed that Journalist does not include support for the MBP Touch Bar. It might be useful to have some of the basic editing commands, record button, channel muting, or other options available using the interface.

    I realize this is only available to a small subset of overall users, so I understand it's not a priority.

  20. The option to compress the audio files of the project for archive

    Hindenburg save the project's files in wave, when you use several years you have plenty of GBs used in the HDD.

    An option to compress file projects in mp3 or AAC would be fine.
