  1. 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.

    • 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

      • 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.

          • Navigation and Exporting

            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…

            • 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…

              • Improve Journalist PRO

                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…

                • 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.

                  • Change order of tracks

                    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...

                    • a few suggestions

                      Hi there, I just started using Hindenburgh Pro since joining Annie Fredrickson, who I believe you met when you were touring Australia. Very sleek and powerful and I enjoy using it. But I have a couple of suggestions that may make it a bit easier to use- requiring fewer clicks and adjustments. Apologies if the functionality is already there and I simply haven't discovered it. Or if they are just habits I've picked up from using other software, and I just need to get more used to Hindy.
                      All the best, Mic

                      • Lock Track

                        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.

                        • Make importing from a CD faster?

                          Some of our outside producers give me their shows on a disk with several tracks. With Soundforge I could import the entire CD in less than 2 minutes. On Journalist Pro I'm sitting at 5 minutes and only halfway done importing the CD. Maybe it's due to each track being normalized during the import? I DO like that feature.

                          • More options while working on multiple individual files

                            I do a lot of shorts like "A Moment in Time" and "90 Second Naturalist". As it is, all I can do is right-click->export selection about 30 times. an option to export multiple files individually would be amazing (something like Audacity has). This forces me to use Audacity for half of my work.

                            It would be nice to have more metadata options that aren't JUST for the whole session. All I have right now is the option to change the name, which doesn't help me input the necessary information for ENCO.

                            Thank you for your responses so far, and keep…

                            • Add a "Publish to local folder" to the Publish tab.

                              This could be useful if you would like to publish to your web services, a 'dropbox' derivate and to a local test folder at the same time.
                              In short, this means to make the export dialog available in the publish tab.

                                  I've decided to use Hindenburg's interface to transfer archival interviews stored on DAT to my computer. A helpful feature would be a timer that would stop recording at a pre-set length.

                                  All the best.
