  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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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")

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                            • Audio to text transcription - best process?

                              When I want a text transcription of a group of voices in a meeting -- I play the file into my headphones --- then I speak the words into Microsoft Speech Recognition - a resident app that is well trained to my voice.

                              It's kludgy, but I get about 95% of what I need in text... suffices for notes or for searching for short clips from huge content.

                              I sure wish I could just route that sound file into a transcriber -- even if it was a crappy job, it would help with planning and producing. Right now it looks…

                              • 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.

                                • 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!

                                  • 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!

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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!
