  1. 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.

  3. 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")

  4. MacBook Pro Touch Bar Support

    I noticed that Journalist does not include support for the MBP Touch Bar. It might be useful to have some of the basic editing commands, record button, channel muting, or other options available using the interface.

    I realize this is only available to a small subset of overall users, so I understand it's not a priority.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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!!!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Please make Hindenburg Jounalist Pro available on the Mac App Store

    For various reasons, I *will not* install any software on my Mac that does not come from the Mac App Store. I willing accept that that will mean a higher price, but it's worth it for me.

    Please put Hindenburg Journalist Pro on the (UK) Mac App Store. If you do, I will buy it at pretty much any price.

  17. UI colors could use some fixing

    Thin orange cursor lines and blue waveforms create a poor contrast, which makes it unnecessarily hard to drag markers around–it's really difficult to tell where the cursor actually is at any given moment. Maybe thicken the line a few pixels or look for a stronger contrast in colors?

  18. Export multiple clips at once to the clipboard

    I don't see anyway to do this, but I'd like to be able to place multiple clips from the tracks to the clipboard in one piece. Right now, I think I can only go one by one.

  19. Could you support podcast output at -18 LUFS?

    Based upon the AES report on loudness standards (http://www.aes.org/technical/documents/AESTD1004_1_15_10.pdf), many professional resources like Transom.org suggest outputting podcasts at -18 LUFS -- particularly if they focus on spoken voice content like interviews.

    Does Hindenburg have any plans to develop an output option for -18 LUFS?

    Thanks in advance for your consideration of this potential product upgrade.

  20. The option to compress the audio files of the project for archive

    Hindenburg save the project's files in wave, when you use several years you have plenty of GBs used in the HDD.

    An option to compress file projects in mp3 or AAC would be fine.
