  1. Flip UI 180 degrees when recording

    When I'm recording with the field recorder, I point the mic, which is at these bottom of the phone, at the subject. This causes the UI to be upside down too me ( since the mic is pointing away from me). It would be great if there was an option to flip the UI by 180 degrees so the it appeared right side up to me during recording.

    • Support podcast chapters for mp3s

      Marco Arment's popular iOS podcast app Overcast supports mp3 chapters and it's become more popular among notable podcasts to support it.

      According to Marco, "There’s an MP3 ID3v2 Chapters spec that’s extremely easy to read and write."

      Hindenburg already has chapter support for aac files, it would be nice if it was able to write chapters for mp3 as well.

      View of what chapters look like in Overcast attached.

      • Text export of chapters

        I really would like a function to copy chapter times and titles as simple text to the system clipboard:

        00:00:00.000 Chapter Title 1
        00:00:56.640 Chapter Title 2
        00:12:14.340 Chapter Title 3
        00:14:47.131 Chapter Title 4

        This way it could be pasted right in Podlove Publisher, a popular way to manage podcasts (at least in Germany).

        • FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) Support

          Dear Hindenburg team

          I would like Hindenburg Journalist to support .flac (Free Lossless Audio Codec) files.
          Many people are using this file format within their workflow, when uncompressed files (e.g. .wav) are too clunky.

          • Publish to a 'shared' watch folder

            Jeg kigger på hvordan vi i DR kunne bruge Hindeburg til flere brugere som fesk Nyhederne. Hertil kunne det være en brugervelig funktion at have en mulighed med 'Publish' at publicere sit færdige nyhedsindslag til en folder som vi så vil lave som watch folder. Denne watch folder vil så bruge til at overføre det til vores rundown planlægnings system.
            I dag har Hindenburg jo en Publish til feks ftp server men ikke direkte til en 'inhouse' server/storage.
            Kan godt lide udtrykket publish til denne funktion, for det giver bedre mening end export , da vi vil bruge det til…

              Hej Lars,
              Det kan man allerede (det er sådan Harddisken levere ;) men vi er helt enige det ikke er indlysende fra interfacet. Hvis du skriver en server sti i samme “Publish” konto istedet for ftp adresse opnår du det ønskede effekt. Vi kan endda lave det sådan så alle installationer på DR Nyheder kommer Publish target “Watch folder” automatisk konfigureret ved installation.

              I need a button that can immediately zoom out to the whole project.

              • Doubleclick between two markers selects the area inbetween

                This would make it a lot easier to select the given area for processing.

                • keyboard shortcuts

                  I'd like to see some keyboard shortcuts. When I am selecting audio from the raw track to put into the clipboard, I now use the mouse to select it. I'd love to see a keyboard shortcut for "in" and "out" points of the selection and then a keyboard shortcut to place the clip in the clipboard.

                  • Help

                    On the whole, the help pages are good, with Step-by-step and videos. But sometimes more detail is needed, especially on sound-related matters. I suggest you describe the Why, not just the How.

                    • Option-click on 'Solo' button will clear other currently solo'd tracks

                      This is quite common on most DAWs. You really want to 'solo' one track, but don't want to find, and click-to-clear, all the other currently solo'd tracks. Less of an issue on the scale of Hindenburg projects, but *such a time saver*. Should be easy. :-)

                      When you're in the neighborhood (code wise), might consider it for the 'Mute' buttons as well. Same concept.

                      • MP4 export

                        Please consider adding MP4 to the list of audio export formats. NPR says this is preferred for its new NPR One app. (See, for example, https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1237299-instructions-for-adding-content-to-npr-one.html.)

                          Click, drag across multiple tracks, select a block of regions. Would turn 20 seconds of clicking and holding shift into a 1 second of click and drag.

                          • Ability to lock tracks into groups

                            It would be nice to have a feature that "locks" tracks so that the default is that they're edited together. This prevents a synching hassle when you forget to select multiple tracks before editing.

                            • Automatic Updates

                              Please allow Hindenburg to automatically look for updates. I just realized, there was a newer version available, that fixed an annoying bug, but I had to manually check on the website.

                              Making changelogs available would help, too.
