  1. Detect and delete silence

    When working with separate tracks of several remote guests on a podcast or talk show it is essential to delete "silent" parts of the track when someone isn't talking. Sometimes these parts are not silent at all (because of a lot of background noise or leaking audio from headphones), but that makes it even more important to have them removed.

    I would like Hindi to be able to identify and insert breakpoints around these sections automatically and remove them upon request. That would make my life soooo much easier.

    • Apply effects live/in real-time (Studio Link support)

      As of now, Hindenburg Journalist (Pro) is one of those rare DAWs that can only apply effects during playback.
      But: For some (live) applications we need to apply effects in real-time.

      I'm specifically talking about the new Skype-Killer called "Studio Link" (basically Skype with way better quality, no account, no delay, direct recording in your DAW and only browser-based for your guests in the near future). This plugin demands processing in real-time in order to work.

      • Export all (or all selected) clips from the whole clipboard or a clipboard group

        I'd love to mark several clips in the clipboard and have them batch-exported automatically as separated single audio takes. This would on the one hand allow for reducing the project size dramatically if the original audio source is very large, i.e. an interview or material from a press conference etc.
        On the other hand this feature would help to forward single takes to the editorial office or to other applications.

        • More flexible clipboards

          It would be nice to be able to have two columns in the clipboard section, or create a custom grid pattern so I'm not limited by the height of my screen (I currently have my clipboards on a separate screen than the rest of Hindenburg Journalist, and also using the max number of clipboards)

          • Template projects

            It would be great to be able to choose from a series of templates when starting a new project. Ideally I'd like to designate an existing project as a template. Hindenburg would then remove all audio that is not currently used in the editor or clipboard to minimize the size of that project. That would greatly improve my workflow.

            • Join clips

              Joining two clips on the same track, say by clicking the line between them, could really help to keep the tracks "clean" and simple.

              When you have to move a section it would make it easier when you only have to move one large bit in stead of 5 smaller.

              Think of it as a permanent Group.

              • Merge multiple sessions in HABC

                When we produce large books (studie literature) or books containing several languages, several narrators are working on the same project at the same time, readig different parts.
                It would be a nice if we could merge these parts, included structure, pagenum or other elements. Importing audiofiles and adding these elements afterwards takes to much time..

                • export to and import from protools etc

                  I have a project coming up that will require me to give over my feature to the radio station's in house sound engineers and directors. They will want to be able to edit it using their own audio software.

                    We have merged several similar Ideas regarding interoperability with other DAWs submitted by Hindy users.

                    Unfortunately this is not a minor development project, it will require a substantial re-programming of our base framework and it will take a lot of time. It is the equivalent of asking to be able to take a VW Golf engine and put it into a Chevy Suburban without any issues….a tall order ;).

                    But we have started working on the most low-level code we will require to support a way of integrating with Protools and other DAWs.

                    I cannot guarantee that AAF export will be the final result, we will be looking for the most flexible solution to support export to multiple competitors’s session formats.

                    Unfortunately none of them follow the AAF standard as it is described, each DAW has made it’s own interpretation of the standard.

                    I apologise for the inconvenience.

                    Best regards …

                  • Move the order of headers in TOC

                    Would it be possible to move the order of the headers in TOC? At the moment of the recording the definive order is not always known, so it would be necessary tot move the headers with the connected audio in the right order.

                    • Search/Filter Within Clipboards

                      Editing large projects with many clips, I regularly spend a lot of time scrolling through the clipboard to find a specific clip. It would be really nice to have a search field or other filters to narrow down the number of clips in the list.

                      • 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.

                        • Hindenburg Journalist (Pro) 64 Bit edition

                          By now, there are many 64 Bit DAWs and plugins. 64 Bit does offer some advantages over old 32 Bit software, especially when in larger projects.

                          Please provide a 64 Bit version of Hindenburg Journalist (Pro).

                            • Add option to colorize portions of the tape

                              First, thanks for making this product. It's saved me so much time since I started using it.

                              I think if we could change portions of the tape for labeling purposes it would be useful in a number of ways. I mostly use your software to edit interviews for broadcast - and so a big part of the job is whittling down 15 minutes of tape to 10 minutes of interview. If I could colorize portions of the tape, then on the first pass through I could indicate which parts I definitely want to keep in, and which parts are "maybes."…

                                Hi Keith (and supporters ;),

                                Apologies for not responding earlier. We are looking at the option to provide colour-coding options in general. As you can imagine, there are many ways one could use colour-coding, some of them at odds with each other, so it will take us some time to document all the options and find the right solution. But we are taking this seriously, thanks again for the feedback.

                              • Color Coding

                                I wish there was an option to color code clips. That way it would be easier to identify splits you want to come back to.

                                • Increase the number of effects

                                  So it looks like I'm the only one with this problem:

                                  I would like to use more than 4 effects / VST plug ins:

                                  Noise Reduction (Reaper ReaFir)
                                  Noise Gate

                                  Compressor

                                      Right now Hindenburg Journalist cannot expand to a full screen window on my Macbook Pro. I would like to see that function available.

                                      • ASIO Support

                                        ASIO support so that audio interfaces with multiple inputs could be used would make Hindenburg the ideal DAW for many podcasters. I record 3 microphones via a focusrite scarlet 18i8. I would love to use Hindenburg for its spoken word focus, but it currently can not fit my recording needs.

                                        • Jump-Key ( forward / backward ) to the next eevent

                                          At the moment it is only possible to jump to the end or the beginning of a track.
                                          in some time it is necessary, to jump EXACTLY to the beginning or end of a clip.
                                          Positioning with the Cursor is not precise enough.

                                          This function should work only for a marked Soundtrack.
