  1. exporting metadata

    I'm working on creating a multimedia slideshow. I'd love to do it in Hindenburg, but Hindy doesn't offer all the visual transition effects and video editing that I need. So I'm using Adobe Premiere instead. However, I'd like to log my tape in Hindy before importing it to Premiere. Is there a way of transferring the metadata on my tracks in Hindy to Premiere? I want to label my clips in Hindy and then have the labels show up in Premiere. Is there a way to do that?

  3. Adding handles to a section of track

    I'd like to have the ability to have more ability to fade in and fade out a track. For example, for an audio track I'd like it to fade in, then 20 seconds later it will need to increase in volume during a gap in the vocal track. After 5 seconds it will decrease to a backing track and then fade out completely.

  4. Two-way compatibility with Descript

    Exporting to Descript - get with Descript so they can directly import a Hindy project file as-is...especially multi-track files and having them go into Descript as a sequence - stay mulit-track - rather than having to break them apart and then reassemble them in Descript would be great. Also, if one could publish straight from Descript to a Hindy project file, all the better, of course. The more seamless this can be, the better. One thought...if I could do everything Descript does from inside Hindy, no import/exporting, even better. Can Descript be a plug-in for Hindy if we pay for…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Time data in HABC

    Is it possible to add the following feature in your HABC program: at the moment we are using a Daisy recording tools which had the ability to produce data of the session time (how long is this project open) and the recorded time. Knowing this you can calculate if the narrator makes many mistakes or is an efficient reader or not. F.i. some narrators produce 60 minutes of spoken word in 120 minutes of recording. So this score is 50%. Other narrators produces less than 50% while some narrators are very efficient in the score of 70% or more. We…

  11. Plugin flexibility

    Hi,
    it would be great to have the opurtunity to move the plugins around a little bit not only on each track but also between the tracks.

    For example if I on one track have put a limiter, eq and then a compressor in that order, I then might want to change the order or even insert another eq in between the signal chain to do a A-B test between two different eq's.

    i'm a soundengineer and I use waves plugins wich works fine in Hindenburg theese days.

    // thanks

  12. Preserve groups on clipboard import

    When importing clipboards from project A with groups A1...A4 into project B all clips in group A1 are added to B1, A2 to B2, and so on. This also happens when groups have custom names. At least in this case it would make sense to add the custom named group as it is in project A as an additional group in project B. If groups in A and B have identical names or standard names, I would like to have a choice to either merge the groups as it is happening now or import them as additional groups.

  13. Silence detection

    Occasionally, when producing a podcast you leave a little bit of audio at the far right - you might have moved it there on purpose while editing. The result is your lovely podcast, which plays all the way through, then a big gap, then a little clip of audio.

    As a suggestion, when publishing or exporting a file, you could detect long periods of silence and place this in the dialog box at the end, as an advisory for editors. "For information: this audio contains 183 seconds of silence." That, alone, would be enough to at least notice that something…

  14. Normal Zoom with Apple Trackpad

    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.

  15. Fix "save as"

    Currently when I use an existing project as a template for a new one Hindenburg only adds a new session file ("Project.nhsx"), not a new File directory ("Project Files"). That makes it impossible (or at least risky to the uninformed user) to save the new session file in another directory. It makes it also harder to share a project, as the File directory is cluttered with files which may or may not be needed after "saving as".

  18. '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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
