  1. 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!!!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Ability to sort markers by time not assigned number

    In HABC NLS, it would be really helpful to have the ability to sort the markers by time. We use markers in the editing & recording processes to id corrections that are found in the reviewing process and to id spots where a narrator has redone a section. Ability to sort by time would mean that its easy to identify time frame and book section for corrections.

  10. 96khz support would be a huge help.

    Hi, I have been using Hindenburg for several years as a podcaster (findtheconversation.com, tucsonense.com) and 44.1khz has always been ample for my independent production needs. However, in my professional life, I am an oral historian at the University of Arizona Libraries, where we recently purchased Hindenburg to help clean up and edit our archival audio. Because we are an archive, we work entirely at 96khz/24bit. I realize this audio resolution may still be a bit niche, but it would be exciting to see that capability added to Hindenburg.

    Thank you!

  11. Saving a default session

    I love that I can save a default session with all the tracks I use for my usual podcast. But is doesn't save my plug-ins on the track. So every time I start I waste a couple minutes adding compressors, eq, etc to the tracks. Is there a way to save the plug-ins with the default that I"m missing?
    If not that would be a great time saver.

  12. try the upgrade

    Hi I bought Hindenburg but it's a bit limited for my needs and I'd like to upgrade soon. I wanted to get a free trial of the Hindenburg Journalist Pro to see if it what I'm after, but it says that I can't as I already tried the trial (before my first Hindenburg purchase.) Is there a way I can still try the trial for Journalist Pro before possibly buying?
    Thanks
    Sofia

  13. Recording more than two tracks on a skype/call record

    I use the skype/call record feature often, it's helpful and wonderful! However, you can only record the call track + one other track. I often am recording two hosts interviewing a guest via Skype/call recorder and end up having to set up a separate audio recorder for the second host and sync it up later. That's a bummer :( It'd be awesome if we were able to record the call/skype on one track and then multiple mics on multiple tracks!

  14. Visualize content filled with audio in the Manuscript and Narrator View.

    Make visual what has been filled with audio or not in the manuscript and especially the narrator view. Like it is in the contents view now. Or just with a different colour for the chapters that have been read and filled with audio. It makes it so much easier to navigate for readers that use the narrator view only.

  15. Queued/Bulk Exports

    It would be really awesome Hindy could queue projects to be exported. That way a whole bunch of projects could be rendered at a given time, instead of twiddling my thumbs for ten minutes each export.

  16. Navigation and Exporting

    Hi, I've been using Journalist PRO for about 6 months now. I have high hopes for this platform but there are some things that need addressing.

    1. Ability to Export all chapters at once with either auto naming (name_01.wav) or name of chapter.

    2. Option to make the Export progress window disappear after export. Please!! Having to close that window and export each chapter one at a time is a time killer!!

    3. When adding a Master track it should automatically create it at the bottom of the window, and...

    4. Master track should be size adjustable independently from the…

  19. Support for ContourDesign Shuttle

    Hello. I was attempting to get a Contour ShuttlePRO v2 working under Journalist.

    http://www.contourdesign.com/US/product/shuttlepro-v2/

    Normally it's possible to create a profile with unsupported software via keyboard shortcuts. The edit point controls in Journalist aren't really functionally compatible with the jog dials. Any chance either directly supporting the Shuttle SDK or having movement shortcuts included that are more functional with this product? Or if you can release a functional Profile for the software driver.

    The SDK from Contour can be requested in the Shuttle FAQ section here.

    http://www.contourdesign.com/US/support/

    Thanks for your time. This device really makes quick edits easy under other…

  20. Audio-to-Text-Transcription

    Imagine your audio quotes being transcribed into text automatically. I was impressed to see how the start up Detour does that
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1evmLntTT20#action=share

    This would be great for Hindenburg.
