  1. Bug: Wrong channel recorded

    OS: Windows 10
    Version: Hindenburg 1.82.2302

    I noticed the following behavior and I think, this is a bug:

    When I connect a Zoom H6 Fiel recorder to the computer and use the the H6 in as interface in multi track mode, I can choose different inputs for different tracks, for example Microphone 3 and 4 in Hindenburg for H6 channels 1 and 2 (XLR inputs).

    I can see the levels of both microphones in Hindenburg separately on both tracks, just as I would expect.

    But ony the first of the both channels is recorded on both tracks. The second microphone…

  2. Freeze playhead and scroll tracks

    I would love fro be able to freeze the playhead and scroll the tracks. This way I can keep my eyes fixed on the playhead in the center and, when I stop playback to make an edit, I would know that the audio to be corrected is just to the left of the center of the screen. It would require much less eye and mouse movement.

  3. 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…

  4. Add the exact time point where the track was cut for clipboard

    Hi,

    I'm currently running into a serious issue because I'm working with two distinct audio tracks that go hand in hand (an interview). I'm torn between just editing from the track or organizing everything into the clipboard first. The issue with the latter is I don't know how to sync my clips up later, especially when there's interjection. Currently, all the clipboard does is show how long the clip is (which isn't really important) instead of at what time the clip was cut (for example, 45 seconds). If I had that, I would know exactly how to put the puzzle…

  5. Warning when overwriting a file when publishing

    I produce a podcast every day, and do this by trying to remember to "save as" a new file every day. I don't always remember.

    When publishing audio, Hindenburg never checks if you're overwriting a file that already exists. This is not what normally happens on MacOS or Windows - you're normally told "do you want to overwrite this file?" or something - and this behaviour ought to be the default within Hindenburg, to my mind.

    (I can see the merits of being able to switch an error message like this off, too).

  6. Support for double-ender recordings (SquadCast, Ringr, Zencastr, etc.)

    Since quality from Skype and Google Hangouts is often dodgy (not studio quality), and not fool-proof (e.g. difficult to get secondary, back-up recordings), I use SquadCast and Ringr as my preferred platforms for double-ender recordings. It would be fantastic if Hindenburg Journalist PRO could natively support dealing and integrating with one or more of these platforms.

  8. Export / Publish Efficiency - Temp Files and Duplicate Settings

    Hindenburg is incredibly powerful but mixdowns / renders can be very time consuming if effects have been used, particularly if there are several tracks to process.

    While I realize that some of that is unavoidable, the way Hindenburg matches loudness targets is to process the mix twice - once to determine loudness processing needs and again to apply them. It seems like the duplicate processing could be cut in half if the mix was first rendered to a temp file and then that file processed for final loudness and export / publish.

    Depending on the amount of processing in a…

  9. Hello, I am a blind and it is not possible for me to use and modify the volume. Do you have some short cut for that? Could you work on this?

    Hello, I am a blind journalist and I would like first tou congratulate you for the accessibility's work that you did in this program. Neverttheless, it is not possible for me to contrôle and modify the volume of my traks because this fonction seems to be only visual. Does it exist some short cut which allaws blind people to increase or decrease a track's volume? Otherwise, maybe you could include a parameter in the menu for this? Anyway, I hope you will be able to suggest me something quickly about that.
    I am French and I am using Hindenburg on…

  10. Zoom in

    When you click "Command and +" to zoom in on content, that content should be centered automatically so that the section at the cursor is easy to see and work with.

  11. Color Coding

    I'm aware there has already been a feature request for this, but nothing seems to have happened since 2015. Is there any chance you might introduce color coding at some point? It seems like a simple enough feature and it would really improve the product.

    Thanks!

  12. Auto-save/Back-up Feature

    When my colleague tried to save her project at the end of the day, Hindenburg crashed and her whole work was gone when she reopend the project.
    Is there something like an auto-save feature that prevents such incidents in the future?

  13. Change Shortcuts/Commands

    I would love to change the keyboard settings and use my own shortcuts. Is there a way to change the commands on Hindenburg (currently trial version, Windows).
    Thanks!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Mixing Stereo Down to Mono

    Instead of splitting stereo tracks to the left and right, I wish there were a way to combine them together, "mixing it down to mono," for a fuller sound. Audacity does this reasonably well.

  17. EQ preset

    Knowing the frequency response of the microphones I am using (e.g. Sennheiser MD 42) when working on recorded material I always find myself repeating the same EQ settings for the same source (microphone).

    It would be great to be able to save personal presets.

    (like already with the more complex "voice profile")

  18. A horizontal line for sound level

    I'd love to be able to place a line, that you could see and that would reach from one end of the track window to the other side, at a certain decibel level. That would help set all fades in different places to the same level. So if I always start my vocals over music when the music has faded to a certain point, I can then easily replicate that by seeing a horizontal line, which can be adjusted up or down, to ensure that I align my next inserted vocal at the point the music reaches the same level.

  19. Coloured boxes

    Hi Hindenburg,

    I'd love a feature where I could change the default blue colour to red or green or whatever, depending on my editing process.

    When editing, I have to use a separate notepad with time markings to say what needs to be changed. But I'd love to be able to highlight the audio boxes with different colours (red for re-record narration, green for adjusting P-pops, yellow for audio quotes that need to be verified by an independent source etc). This is how I run my email software - different colours for different types of emails/work. This is super handy…

  20. Resync tracks

    You know how it goes: you're editing a multitrack file, think you're deleting portions from all the tracks and five minutes later realize you'd only activated one track, thus pushing much of the project out of sync.

    Cmd-z to the rescue, but that means losing all the cuts you've made.

    So what about a way to restore the sync between two or more audio files? I'm not quite sure how to implement it UI/UX wise, but I'm pretty sure that even a clumsy version would be super helpful.

    Very preliminary sketch of the result attached in clumsy screenshots.
