  1. 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.

    • VST Plugin Locations

      Hello. I work in the radio industry and also write music. I would like to see an option to choose locations for VST plugins rather than the current system which dictates a specific folder. I have different plugin locations (multiple) and it would be nice to specify these locations to scan for plugins rather than have to move my plugins to work for this specific application.

      • Auto-save/Back-up Feature

        When my colleague tried to save her project at the end of the day, Hindenburg crashed and her whole work was gone when she reopend the project.
        Is there something like an auto-save feature that prevents such incidents in the future?

        • 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…

          • Add an adjustable true peak option for Journalist Pro

            I love the option to change loudness targets when publishing or exporting in Journalist Pro. I would also like to have the option to change the true peak limit to -1.5, -2, or -3 dB to allow for different platform and media needs.

            • Hotkey/Icon for "Properties..."

              It would be nice if I could quickly access the "Properties..." option without having to click through the File menu. Either a hotkey or an icon on the top bar would be lovely!

              • aaf/omf import

                Please enable AAF and OMF importing. This would allow me and my company to use Descript to edit audio and then pull it into Hindenburg. I'm considering switching DAW's company wide since we can't do this currently.

                    • Change Shortcuts/Commands

                      I would love to change the keyboard settings and use my own shortcuts. Is there a way to change the commands on Hindenburg (currently trial version, Windows).
                      Thanks!
                      Sandra

                        • 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…

                          • add feature "share to webdav" for field-recorder

                            As a journalist i'm very picky about who I do share my data with (even indirectly). So I really don't want to upload my recordings to soundcloud (and neither i'd do with dropbox, google-drive, etc).
                            if you would add an option under "share" to upload recordings to a free-to-pick hoster, using the webdav-protocol it would help much. like i have set-up my own little cloud (using nextcloud/owncloud) to exactly control access of my data. and - as a nice side-effect - they stay with me!

                            so the feature-request is: pls add an option to upload files to nextcloud (aka webdav)

                            • Add navpoints on audio import

                              Often, when producing DTBs, my team is dealing with audio files which has already been logically organized according to a book structure element, whether that is primary headings, or pages. What would be an incredible addition from our perspective is the ability to place navpoints in bulk at the beginning of each audio file.

                              An example case would be creating a DAISY 2.02 DTB in which the source audio files each represent a page of text. In the existing HABC build, a user would have to Tab->Click "Page" (or key-press) to add each nav element.

                              I'm happy to discuss this…

                              • 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.

                                • MIDI or HUI control

                                  My workflow would greatly improve if I could use a control surface/mixer interface with Hindenburg. Most of them use MIDI to connect (e.g. behringer, presonus faderport, etc.). It's incredibly disappointing that software this expensive has no compatibility with any of the control surfaces I use.

                                    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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
