  1. 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…

      • Improve Metadata/Properties for DAISY 2.02 output

        We've recently begun testing HABC as a replacement for our current DAISY 2.02 production suite and workflow. During our testing we've noticed that the resulting output does not initially pass DAISY 2.02 validation using the industry standard tool (https://code.google.com/archive/p/daisytools/). Two small additions/modifications to the metadata creation seem to be necessary.

        ncc:multimediaType needs the content value of "audioNCC" in addition to the other content values.

        ncc:sourceEdition is only a recommended field per the specification, but it seems to throw a warning in the validation tool when it is not included.

        By modifying the ncc.html output from HABC to include…

          if you set “Multimedia Type” in “Properties” to “Audio, TOC” the output will set “ncc:multimediaType” to “audioNCC”.

          Support for ncc:sourceEdition will be added in the next update (Probably build 2236).

        • 'Sticky' markers

          Just a quick note. In early edits of an interview I always plant markers for different segments of the interview.

          But in the second sweep of edits I will often rearrange the interview entirely- or open gaps up to slot other speakers into the sames section.

          It's very easy to move big chunks of audio clips with the 'Select to End' shortcut. But the markers remain behind- and I have to try and recognise by eye where to replant them.

          Could there be some way to make the markers 'sticky' so that they attach to a particular clip or group…

          • Audio Transcription

            It would be so awesome if Hindenburg provided an audio transcription feature to print out recorded audio as a MS Word document. When editing, (especially interviews) this would certainly speed up the podcast post-production process:).

            • Add the option to publish to Spreaker.com

              Spreaker is a great platform for on demand recordings and live shows, it would be great to be able to publish directly

              • 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.

                  • Feature that make it possible to add description in text to a clip in clipboard

                    Working with multiple clips it can be hard to remember the exact content of the clip even with a new name. I would suggest a feature that make it possible to add a description in text to a clip in the clipboard. The text will show when you highlight a clip.

                    • Make Hindenberg behave more like an NLE

                      Hi there, I'm a former video producer. I've been using DAWs like Hindeberg, ProTools, and Audition for a while now. Given that DAWS are almost always designed for something other than podcast/radio/narrative workflow, I think Hindenberg should consider adopting some of the workflow features of NLEs like Avid or Premiere. Specifically, I am talking about having a separate window for your source material, where you can type in a timecode, or make a selection, and then insert it into wherever your cursor is on the project timeline. This would be a far superior way to work than making a ton…

                      • Lock positions of grouped regions to each other

                        As of now, we have the ability to lock regions into groups, even over different tracks. That's nice. But:
                        I have grouped regions on two tracks. If I make a cut on track 1, the position of my grouped regions to eachother will be changed. This defies the purpose of grouped regions.
                        Please lock the positions of grouped regions to each other.

                        • Two track version of Field Recorder, with support for dual mics

                          It would be wonderful to be able to record host-guest interview tracks in FR using two mics. Is there a way for the app to be able to sync with two outboard Bluetooth mics?

                          A dream use case is being able to do walk and talk interviews (say, in a museum or historic city center) using high quality, noise isolating Bluetooth headsets. Even for normal field interviews, it would be great to be able to use independent handheld cardioid mics.

                          Any chance this may fit within your product plans? Thank you!

                            It would be nice to automatically overwrite dated files, such as newscasts, when uploading new content to Soundcloud. WSKG uses it to create an RSS feed for the Alexa Flash Briefing.

                              On a Mac, it's common to zoom to. like on an iPhone when using the Magic Trackpad. It is a big change to zoom with the scroll movement. Maybe you could provide an optional function in the settings.

                              • 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.

                                • Kind of Ducking

                                  To duck a soundbed of music or ambience you have to select many regions and reduce the levels by draging with the mouse and watching the target levels in the little window above the region.

                                  If these target levels are the same over a wide range of the session, a big improvement could be this workflow:

                                  You type the target level into an additional window of the session properties (or somewhere else).

                                  Then select the ducking region as usual and press a shortcut - and the level will be reduced automatically to the predefined number.

                                  What a time saving feature!

                                  • Soundboard

                                    In Ultraschall.FM (a Podcasting Template for Reaper) you can implement a soundboard as VST-Plugin and a ducking automation as VST either. For producing a live-podcast in Hindy this would be nice to heave.

                                    • 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.
