  1. 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!
    Sandra

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

              • Feature that make it possible to add description in text to a clip in clipboard

                Working with multiple clips it can be hard to remember the exact content of the clip even with a new name. I would suggest a feature that make it possible to add a description in text to a clip in the clipboard. The text will show when you highlight a clip.

                • Kind of Ducking

                  To duck a soundbed of music or ambience you have to select many regions and reduce the levels by draging with the mouse and watching the target levels in the little window above the region.

                  If these target levels are the same over a wide range of the session, a big improvement could be this workflow:

                  You type the target level into an additional window of the session properties (or somewhere else).

                  Then select the ducking region as usual and press a shortcut - and the level will be reduced automatically to the predefined number.

                  What a time saving feature!

                  • Soundboard

                    In Ultraschall.FM (a Podcasting Template for Reaper) you can implement a soundboard as VST-Plugin and a ducking automation as VST either. For producing a live-podcast in Hindy this would be nice to heave.

                    • Lock positions of grouped regions to each other

                      As of now, we have the ability to lock regions into groups, even over different tracks. That's nice. But:
                      I have grouped regions on two tracks. If I make a cut on track 1, the position of my grouped regions to eachother will be changed. This defies the purpose of grouped regions.
                      Please lock the positions of grouped regions to each other.

                      • Add "file replace" to your FTP function for Soundcloud

                        It would be nice to automatically overwrite dated files, such as newscasts, when uploading new content to Soundcloud. WSKG uses it to create an RSS feed for the Alexa Flash Briefing.

                        • Edit Count

                          Just for the fascination of knowing, I'm curious about my edit counts when I'm working on a project. Think "word count" but for audio editors.

                          Fun idea.

                          • Silencium

                            Where I can find the function of inserting silence. Very useful function in radio. The Silence is not the same as "nothing" or white noise.

                            Jerzy.

                            • 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")

                              • 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.

                                • 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…

                                  • More radiant color for Solo

                                    When we click on "Mute", the color change is a nice bright yellow. But when we click on "Solo" the color change is not as noticeable. Please make the activation of "Solo" the same bright yellow as "Mute". Perhaps even make it "Bold".

                                    I have many times scratched my head wondering why a track can't be heard. Then I squint at "Solo" as see that it has been activated.

                                    Thanks!

                                    Rowby

                                    • 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.

                                      • Automatic crossfades for all cuts

                                        Hello,

                                        I use Hindenburg for podcast editing, and one thing I'd love is the ability to shift-select across several cuts and hit 'F' (or some other key/combination) to add crossfades between every cut in the selected region. Right now, I have to crossfade across all my cuts manually, and it's very time consuming. If I could pave over abrupt cuts and clipped breaths automatically, it would be so, so useful. Thanks!

                                        • Backspace functions like the Mac does...

                                          I work between my Mac and my PC. The Backspace (PC) and Delete key (Mac) serve different functions between Hindenburg PRO. Would it be possible to make the Backspace key function as the Delete key does on the mac, deleting the selected region?

                                          Constantly launching myself back to the start is driving me nuts.
