  1. Add navpoints on audio import

    Often, when producing DTBs, my team is dealing with audio files which has already been logically organized according to a book structure element, whether that is primary headings, or pages. What would be an incredible addition from our perspective is the ability to place navpoints in bulk at the beginning of each audio file.

    An example case would be creating a DAISY 2.02 DTB in which the source audio files each represent a page of text. In the existing HABC build, a user would have to Tab->Click "Page" (or key-press) to add each nav element.

    I'm happy to discuss this…

  2. View > Cue Points

    The menu item View > Markers does not show Cue Points which is a pity. I propose inserting a new menu item View > Cue Points which shows a list of all cue points.

  3. 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.

  4. Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

    Custom keyboard shortcuts are the way to streamline the workflow. So far, I find the predefined shortcuts clumsy and awkward. I know you're product is different, but if there's one thing you can emulate from Adobe Audition, it's the ability to create custom keyboard shortcuts. that's going to be a game changer.

  5. 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.

  6. Use Multiple Cores for Book Exporting

    Having observed many a book exported in HABC (NLS), I've noticed that Hindy uses a single core to encode audio files even if there are multiple cores available (see attached). I think it would speed up the process (and reduce the thumb-twiddling) if Hindy could make use of all available cores.

  7. Tooltip for Stereo (L/R) panning

    This is a rather simple but helpful one:

    Aso of now (build 2182), we can achieve left/right stereo panning by using a simple slider. That's great.
    But to do this precisely or symmetrically, one has to count pixels on that slider.
    I'd like to see some sort of simple tooltip to help us with that. Something like:
    100% Left ... 1% Left ... Center (or 0%) ... 1% Right ... 100% Right

    That's all.

  8. Close file without closing Hindenburg

    It would be nice to be able to close a session without having to Exit from Hindenburg.

    Most similar programs let you do that.

    Thanks!

  9. Allow an option to publish to Spreaker

    There is other services than Souncloud. Add Spreaker to publish will be great ;-)

  10. Multiple Sessions

    It would be helpful to allow multiple sessions. Many times I need to cut and past audio from a previous recording. That requires many steps: open old session, copy. Close old session. Open new session. Paste. Repeat.
    Multiple sessions opened at the same time would be really helpful.

  12. Compatible with izotope Rx plug in

    Hey guys,

    RX is now available as a plug in, compatible with most DAWs.
    https://www.izotope.com/en/products/repair-and-edit/rx-plug-in-pack.html
    Can you talk with them and get the plug in sorted out. Win win for both of you, and they need to know you are there to cater for.

  13. Different types of non-linear fades?

    I love Hindenburg. One thing I would use all the time is the option to use different shapes of fades, besides the linear fade that currently exists. Right now, I play with the fade shapes by hand and it takes ~30s to make a nice S fade. What if it only took 2 seconds! Any plans on that for the future? Thanks!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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...

  20. 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.
