  1. PDF support for book importation for narrator

    I've received a book in PDF format I'm to narrate. Converting it to epub makes it unreadable (images of the chapter text extend beyond the screen).
    Importing PDF and .doc files should be added to the narrator software. As it is, it's unusable for me :(
    Also - add
    Import > Audio
    > Book/Manuscript
    into the "import" submenu and get rid of "open" for the manuscript. You call it "import" in your tutorials. It should be in the "import" function, not an "open" function.

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Compatible with izotope Rx plug in

            Hey guys,

            RX is now available as a plug in, compatible with most DAWs.
            https://www.izotope.com/en/products/repair-and-edit/rx-plug-in-pack.html
            Can you talk with them and get the plug in sorted out. Win win for both of you, and they need to know you are there to cater for.

            • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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!

                    • 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…

                      • Text/Narration parallel to the audio wave

                        In times when more and more audio transcriptions in better quality is available (e.g. Trint), it would be nice to combine these transcriptions with its time stamps and attach them to the audio in Hindenburg exactly in time, like it is possible in Audacity with captions.

                        • Add ability to preview an edit

                          Sound forge lets you make a selection and preview the edit (without the selection) by using ctrl-k. Is this available in Hindenburg? If not, it would be nice!!!

                          • 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.

                              • Recording more than two tracks on a skype/call record

                                I use the skype/call record feature often, it's helpful and wonderful! However, you can only record the call track + one other track. I often am recording two hosts interviewing a guest via Skype/call recorder and end up having to set up a separate audio recorder for the second host and sync it up later. That's a bummer :( It'd be awesome if we were able to record the call/skype on one track and then multiple mics on multiple tracks!

                                • Support for ContourDesign Shuttle

                                  Hello. I was attempting to get a Contour ShuttlePRO v2 working under Journalist.

                                  http://www.contourdesign.com/US/product/shuttlepro-v2/

                                  Normally it's possible to create a profile with unsupported software via keyboard shortcuts. The edit point controls in Journalist aren't really functionally compatible with the jog dials. Any chance either directly supporting the Shuttle SDK or having movement shortcuts included that are more functional with this product? Or if you can release a functional Profile for the software driver.

                                  The SDK from Contour can be requested in the Shuttle FAQ section here.

                                  http://www.contourdesign.com/US/support/

                                  Thanks for your time. This device really makes quick edits easy under other…

                                  • Different types of non-linear fades?

                                    I love Hindenburg. One thing I would use all the time is the option to use different shapes of fades, besides the linear fade that currently exists. Right now, I play with the fade shapes by hand and it takes ~30s to make a nice S fade. What if it only took 2 seconds! Any plans on that for the future? Thanks!

                                      but it would be nice to have edit icons such as 'Shuffle Trim' or 'Slide audio inside region' on the top edit bar and Loop, Play selection' and 'Rehearse' icons on the bottom play section

                                        I'm thinking of using Amazon S3 for my audio files. Since S3 doens't have traditional ftp access, it would be great if Hindenburg supported S3 upload.

                                        • Ability to hide tracks from the workspace and mixer window

                                          Ever since Avid's move to a subscription based ownership model I've been trying out DAWs to take over from ProTools.
