  1. Saving effect presets

    I'm missing the functionality of saving presets of effects or VST's.
    So you can choose from your favorite settings instead of recreating them each time.

  2. Narration view configurable

    On a small laptop screen it can be a problem to see all of the text, if the book has a bigger width. The text is not breaking! Flexibility with the display of the text being narrated in the narration view would surely be appreciated: Font Family, Font size, background color, highlighting color configurable by the user.

  3. Detect and delete silence

    When working with separate tracks of several remote guests on a podcast or talk show it is essential to delete "silent" parts of the track when someone isn't talking. Sometimes these parts are not silent at all (because of a lot of background noise or leaking audio from headphones), but that makes it even more important to have them removed.

    I would like Hindi to be able to identify and insert breakpoints around these sections automatically and remove them upon request. That would make my life soooo much easier.

    We have been looking at how we can implement “delete silence” in Hindenburg. I think we should be able to come up with a solution for that in the near future.
    We have been working on some other features that touch the same area, with out latest Beta feature called “Magic Levels”.
    It’s a non destructive way of applying Side Chain Gate – so that mixing multiple recordings become very easy.
    No the same, I know – be it might help out in the situations where you are looking to reduce Bleed or Noisefloor.

  4. Affiliate Program

    Podcasters are in love with affiliate programs to monetize their stuff... Every podcaster should be using your software to edit... it is awesome.

    This is a cool service I recommend - several companies I like use it: https://www.refersion.com?rfsn=280857.7b3ac (yes it is an affiliate link)

    Hope to see you set one up... so when I create the ultimate podcast course I can monetize it ;-)

    Thanks for all the input.

    Unfortunately we still don’t have the resources to get an affiliate program in place. However, we will be moving to a new payment solution in the next months that will have an affiliate option built in, so once we have that daunting project in place, we will look into the implementation of the affiliate program option.

    Thanks for your continued support everyone.

  5. Stem Export

    Hi there. I really enjoy working with Hindenburg. One feature I would love to see is stem export. I do all my edits, tweak eq, compression and all that, but would like to export the stems of the project for archiving, as I delete my RAW files once a project is done.

    Thanks

  6. Templates for ID3 Tagging

    It would be great if you could add templates for the Podcast ID3 tagging under properties... there are just so many items to fill out and for episodes of a show, that is a silly amount of work to do over and over again. Not only that, but it is hard to remember exactly how you did the previous episode without pulling it up.

    This means I need to export the mp3, use the ID3 Tag Editor, look at a previous episode, etc. and can't just push directly from Hindy to libsyn.

  7. 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.

  8. Change order of tracks

    It would be nice to be able to change the order of the tracks just by dragging them to a new position. Minor thing, but if it is possible...

  10. Lock Track

    Add a LOCK TRACK button so that an individual track can be locked so other editing operations will not change it. All regions would stay in place on that track and could not be deleted if locked.

    Journalist PRO is GREAT!!!!!

    This control could be added to this drop-down in the photo attached. Then the blue could turn red to show the track is locked.

    We do already have that in Hindenburg ABC and it has it’s uses rearding recording lamps, silent buttons and transport … but we have not implemented it in Hindenburg Journalist, as things like automating volume curves would not be possible. This might result in more confusion and frustration – that it would solve. But we will keep it in the back of our minds.

  12. Adding handles to a section of track

    I'd like to have the ability to have more ability to fade in and fade out a track. For example, for an audio track I'd like it to fade in, then 20 seconds later it will need to increase in volume during a gap in the vocal track. After 5 seconds it will decrease to a backing track and then fade out completely.

  13. Text editor/scroller

    I would like a built-in basic text editor for writing a script that would then be saved automatically with the audio files for a particular project.
    It would be useful if the script could be scrolled across the screen autocue-style while recording in Hindenburg.

  14. Fix "save as"

    Currently when I use an existing project as a template for a new one Hindenburg only adds a new session file ("Project.nhsx"), not a new File directory ("Project Files"). That makes it impossible (or at least risky to the uninformed user) to save the new session file in another directory. It makes it also harder to share a project, as the File directory is cluttered with files which may or may not be needed after "saving as".

  15. I want more colors!

    This is the only feature I miss from the previous editing software I used: the ability to color different regions different colors. It helped me, particularly, to keep things sorted in stories with more than two or three different speakers. A bonus feature was that the old program allowed me to select all of the regions of the same color. Thanks!

  16. "Linked track editing" should work as "editing all tracks"

    Hi,
    I do long narrative recordings. Whenever there's an error, I drop a marker. I then edit it, and to keep the markers to stay at their position (e g to follow with the audiofile when editing), I make sure that all tracks are marked.
    I was glad to read about the Link Tracks feature, but disappointed when I tried it. I expected that editing on Linked tracks worked as mentioned above, but it didn't. Audio markers stayed at the same place on the timeline, instead of following the audiofile(s).

    I'd be very happy if you changed this! :)

  17. Color Coding

    I wish there was an option to color code clips. That way it would be easier to identify splits you want to come back to.

  19. Export all (or all selected) clips from the whole clipboard or a clipboard group

    I'd love to mark several clips in the clipboard and have them batch-exported automatically as separated single audio takes. This would on the one hand allow for reducing the project size dramatically if the original audio source is very large, i.e. an interview or material from a press conference etc.
    On the other hand this feature would help to forward single takes to the editorial office or to other applications.

  20. Search/Filter Within Clipboards

    Editing large projects with many clips, I regularly spend a lot of time scrolling through the clipboard to find a specific clip. It would be really nice to have a search field or other filters to narrow down the number of clips in the list.
