  1. Edit Count

    Just for the fascination of knowing, I'm curious about my edit counts when I'm working on a project. Think "word count" but for audio editors.

    Fun idea.

    • Silencium

      Where I can find the function of inserting silence. Very useful function in radio. The Silence is not the same as "nothing" or white noise.

      • 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.

        • EQ preset

          Knowing the frequency response of the microphones I am using (e.g. Sennheiser MD 42) when working on recorded material I always find myself repeating the same EQ settings for the same source (microphone).

          It would be great to be able to save personal presets.

          (like already with the more complex "voice profile")

          • A horizontal line for sound level

            I'd love to be able to place a line, that you could see and that would reach from one end of the track window to the other side, at a certain decibel level. That would help set all fades in different places to the same level. So if I always start my vocals over music when the music has faded to a certain point, I can then easily replicate that by seeing a horizontal line, which can be adjusted up or down, to ensure that I align my next inserted vocal at the point the music reaches the same level.

            • Coloured boxes

              Hi Hindenburg,

              I'd love a feature where I could change the default blue colour to red or green or whatever, depending on my editing process.

              When editing, I have to use a separate notepad with time markings to say what needs to be changed. But I'd love to be able to highlight the audio boxes with different colours (red for re-record narration, green for adjusting P-pops, yellow for audio quotes that need to be verified by an independent source etc). This is how I run my email software - different colours for different types of emails/work. This is super handy…

              • More radiant color for Solo

                When we click on "Mute", the color change is a nice bright yellow. But when we click on "Solo" the color change is not as noticeable. Please make the activation of "Solo" the same bright yellow as "Mute". Perhaps even make it "Bold".

                I have many times scratched my head wondering why a track can't be heard. Then I squint at "Solo" as see that it has been activated.

                Thanks!

                • More Than 4 Effects

                  There needs to be the ability to put more than 4 effects on a track. I use Compression, EQ, Noise Reduction and a separate effect plugin to get my raw audio to it's baseline that I use for my show. Then I like to add filters and other effects to that file to alter certain sounds, or add reverb. I can't do that when all 4 of the available effect slots are full.

                  • Automatic crossfades for all cuts

                    Hello,

                    I use Hindenburg for podcast editing, and one thing I'd love is the ability to shift-select across several cuts and hit 'F' (or some other key/combination) to add crossfades between every cut in the selected region. Right now, I have to crossfade across all my cuts manually, and it's very time consuming. If I could pave over abrupt cuts and clipped breaths automatically, it would be so, so useful. Thanks!

                    • Backspace functions like the Mac does...

                      I work between my Mac and my PC. The Backspace (PC) and Delete key (Mac) serve different functions between Hindenburg PRO. Would it be possible to make the Backspace key function as the Delete key does on the mac, deleting the selected region?

                      Constantly launching myself back to the start is driving me nuts.

                      • Please make Hindenburg Jounalist Pro available on the Mac App Store

                        For various reasons, I *will not* install any software on my Mac that does not come from the Mac App Store. I willing accept that that will mean a higher price, but it's worth it for me.

                        Please put Hindenburg Journalist Pro on the (UK) Mac App Store. If you do, I will buy it at pretty much any price.

                        • Could you support podcast output at -18 LUFS?

                          Based upon the AES report on loudness standards (http://www.aes.org/technical/documents/AESTD1004_1_15_10.pdf), many professional resources like Transom.org suggest outputting podcasts at -18 LUFS -- particularly if they focus on spoken voice content like interviews.

                          Does Hindenburg have any plans to develop an output option for -18 LUFS?

                          Thanks in advance for your consideration of this potential product upgrade.

                          • Saving a default session

                            I love that I can save a default session with all the tracks I use for my usual podcast. But is doesn't save my plug-ins on the track. So every time I start I waste a couple minutes adding compressors, eq, etc to the tracks. Is there a way to save the plug-ins with the default that I"m missing?
                            If not that would be a great time saver.

                            • try the upgrade

                              Hi I bought Hindenburg but it's a bit limited for my needs and I'd like to upgrade soon. I wanted to get a free trial of the Hindenburg Journalist Pro to see if it what I'm after, but it says that I can't as I already tried the trial (before my first Hindenburg purchase.) Is there a way I can still try the trial for Journalist Pro before possibly buying?
                              Thanks
                              Sofia

                                Hi, I've been using Journalist PRO for about 6 months now. I have high hopes for this platform but there are some things that need addressing.

                                1. Ability to Export all chapters at once with either auto naming (name_01.wav) or name of chapter.

                                2. Option to make the Export progress window disappear after export. Please!! Having to close that window and export each chapter one at a time is a time killer!!

                                3. When adding a Master track it should automatically create it at the bottom of the window, and...

                                4. Master track should be size adjustable independently from the…

                                  After a good month of using Journalist PRO every week I have these suggestions to make this product better and more competitive with the current marketplace of DAWs.

                                  - Ability Save session as template
                                  - Clock removable and visible when in another app
                                  - Ability to make individual tracks different heights
                                  - Makers 1 and 2 should not be in/out
                                  - I should be able to drop a marker in the tracks playback/record area even if the “Marker” window is highlighted. This is VERY important.
                                  - ability to delete ALL markers Select all markers to delete
                                  - Shuffle trim and…

                                  • Make recoding and editing waaaaay quicker.

                                    Three things:
                                    1. The first 2 markers used always have an "In/Out" designation. That means that all my sessions that have markers will begin with Marker 3. Kind of silly, no? The "In/Out" selection would better be available only in Edit mode, or when I consciously drag over a selection. Then, if it were available, I could preview the edit by playing it when I hit the spacebar. Then I could Commd+X if I wanted it deleted.

                                    2. If a person accidentally clicks on the "Markers" window when recording OR playing they can no longer drop a marker. This is…

                                    • 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.

                                        It would be nice to be able to change the order of the tracks just by dragging them to a new position. Minor thing, but if it is possible...

                                          Add a LOCK TRACK button so that an individual track can be locked so other editing operations will not change it. All regions would stay in place on that track and could not be deleted if locked.

                                          Journalist PRO is GREAT!!!!!

                                          This control could be added to this drop-down in the photo attached. Then the blue could turn red to show the track is locked.
