  1. Session import: option to specify into existing tracks or new tracks and to specify whether effects should be imported as well

    I think the session import feature is stellar. However, I wish there was an option to specify whether the imported tracks are to be imported into existing tracks or should create new tracks. Additionally, if they are to be imported into new tracks, it would be great to have the option to also import any effects and settings.

    Also, if it were possible to import across sample rates, that would be great.

    It’s probably an edge case. But it would be nice.

    Still convinced Hindenburg is the best :-)

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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!

  6. 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…

  7. Export all markers as text file

    Dear Hindenburg staff,

    many thanks for your great product. I often use it while putting together pieces for German public radio.

    I have a very simple request. Would it be possible to make all markers exportable as text files, not just the chapter markers?

    I often use markers for notetaking. I know that you can find them in the nhsx-File, so I'm wondering how difficult it would be to export them directly in the software.

    Reaper, for example, can export its marker list as both txt and csv. Basically, at the moment, I listen to my recordings in Reaper, and…

  8. Reverse a section

    I play songs for broadcast that have sections with explicit language. Would be great if I could reverse those sections so the music could stay in key and on tempo.

  9. aaf/omf import

    Please enable AAF and OMF importing. This would allow me and my company to use Descript to edit audio and then pull it into Hindenburg. I'm considering switching DAW's company wide since we can't do this currently.

  10. 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!

  11. Reference source files instead of copy to project folder

    I'm producing podcasts and notice that my source files (intro music, interview recordings, audio tags, etc.) are being duplicated in the project folder. Since I record ~1hr multitrack interviews, this adds up.
    It would be great to have Hindenburg reference the source files similar to Final Cut Pro X or Lightroom.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Improved Rehearse with loop and fixed focus

    I use the Rehearse function all the time, but setting the correct boundaries for the final cut often requires dozens of replays. It would be nice to have the option to specify a "post-roll" value, and have the Rehearse function loop endlessly through the selected area from pre-roll to post-roll.
    The other part of my suggestion concerns focus. While rehearsing, one fiddles with the boundary markers, so its gets a bit annoying when they get out of view while the playhead sweeps through. So an option to lock the view on any part of the audio (the selected area, or…

  15. Hotkey/Icon for "Properties..."

    It would be nice if I could quickly access the "Properties..." option without having to click through the File menu. Either a hotkey or an icon on the top bar would be lovely!

  16. Audio Transcription

    It would be so awesome if Hindenburg provided an audio transcription feature to print out recorded audio as a MS Word document. When editing, (especially interviews) this would certainly speed up the podcast post-production process:).

  17. add feature "share to webdav" for field-recorder

    As a journalist i'm very picky about who I do share my data with (even indirectly). So I really don't want to upload my recordings to soundcloud (and neither i'd do with dropbox, google-drive, etc).
    if you would add an option under "share" to upload recordings to a free-to-pick hoster, using the webdav-protocol it would help much. like i have set-up my own little cloud (using nextcloud/owncloud) to exactly control access of my data. and - as a nice side-effect - they stay with me!

    so the feature-request is: pls add an option to upload files to nextcloud (aka webdav)
