  1. Sample Projects for practice

    I would like to Journalist Pro have some practice exercises created so new users could get some hands on experience. These projects would include the audio files with basic instructions. Here are some examples that I would like to see.
    Radio news story with one actuality included
    Radio news story with two actualities included
    Radio News feature with multiple interviews
    Radio Commercial :60 with narration, background music and ambience
    * Five minute mini podcast to edit from start to finish
    These examples I believe would allow new users to learn some valuable skills as the complexity of the assignments increased…

  2. Automatic fades by shortcut

    I´m happy to see that there are some new features are to come with the next update, including fades.

    As a Protools user I love the feature to fade the start and the end of a region automatically by pressing "F". It would be nice to have this in Hindy too. Do you think you could add this on the todo list for the coming update?

  3. Cursor Behaviour like in Protools

    I guess, many Hindy users may work with both Hindi and Protools as I do. I´m still confused a tiny but permanent problem: the behaviour of the Cursor (move/edit) in Hindy and PT is interchanged. Hindi: move = above top, edit = below; PT: move = below, edit = above. It would be nice to change this or better: make it possible to choose the favorite behaviour in the settings.

  4. Full Screen Mode

    I love Full Screen Modes - press F11 and get a clutter-free screen, allowing you to focus entirely on your work. Is it difficult to implement?

  5. Full DAW for iOS

    As many media content providers are using the iPad in favour of a laptop, it would make perfect sense to offer a fully featured DAW.
    The success of apps such as Lumafusion and FilmicPro and Affinity photo are leading the way... but we are still waiting for the first serious iOS DAW

  6. Freeze playhead and scroll tracks

    I would love fro be able to freeze the playhead and scroll the tracks. This way I can keep my eyes fixed on the playhead in the center and, when I stop playback to make an edit, I would know that the audio to be corrected is just to the left of the center of the screen. It would require much less eye and mouse movement.

  7. Bug: Wrong channel recorded

    OS: Windows 10
    Version: Hindenburg 1.82.2302

    I noticed the following behavior and I think, this is a bug:

    When I connect a Zoom H6 Fiel recorder to the computer and use the the H6 in as interface in multi track mode, I can choose different inputs for different tracks, for example Microphone 3 and 4 in Hindenburg for H6 channels 1 and 2 (XLR inputs).

    I can see the levels of both microphones in Hindenburg separately on both tracks, just as I would expect.

    But ony the first of the both channels is recorded on both tracks. The second microphone…

  8. Smoother Scrolling

    Scrolling around in Hindenburg's editor is visually slow and choppy, I would love this smoothed out with hardware acceleration.

  9. Add the exact time point where the track was cut for clipboard

    Hi,

    I'm currently running into a serious issue because I'm working with two distinct audio tracks that go hand in hand (an interview). I'm torn between just editing from the track or organizing everything into the clipboard first. The issue with the latter is I don't know how to sync my clips up later, especially when there's interjection. Currently, all the clipboard does is show how long the clip is (which isn't really important) instead of at what time the clip was cut (for example, 45 seconds). If I had that, I would know exactly how to put the puzzle…

  10. Silence detection

    Occasionally, when producing a podcast you leave a little bit of audio at the far right - you might have moved it there on purpose while editing. The result is your lovely podcast, which plays all the way through, then a big gap, then a little clip of audio.

    As a suggestion, when publishing or exporting a file, you could detect long periods of silence and place this in the dialog box at the end, as an advisory for editors. "For information: this audio contains 183 seconds of silence." That, alone, would be enough to at least notice that something…

  11. Support for in-app browsing of Garageband sounds/loops

    The in app browser of media such as Garageband sounds and loops, or FinalCut sound effects, etc. is a handy feature of Apple's pro apps. It would be super helpful to be able to easily access these within Hindenburg.

  13. Using Logitech MX Master 2S thumb wheel with Hindenburg Journalist

    The ability of using the thumb wheel would be a nice feature for scrolling the audio. However, currently the rolling of the thumb wheel of the Logitech MX Master 2S mouse only moves the scroll box on the scrollbar, while the waveform display stays at the same position.

    Maybe there is just a small setting to be reconfigured for this to work.

  14. Drag view / jump half screen

    When editing a track (cutting out unnecessary repetitions, breaths, and such) the playhead sweeps over the region to be cut out, so one must scroll back to get the relevant part in view. Doing this with the scrollbar at the bottom is not easy - dragging the slider is too fast, clicking on the empty part of the scrollbar is too slow.
    I see two good solutions to this problem which could be implemented simultaneously:
    1. Some key + mouse drag transforms the cursor into a hand (like Space in Adobe Photoshop, or the Hand tool in Acrobat Reader), and…

  15. Move all markers 10-15 seconds earlier

    USE CASE: Recording in-person customer interviews with your mobile app -- which is awesome by the way.

    PROBLEM: my customer says something great. I add a marker. When I play back the audio from the marker, I always have to go backwards 10-15 seconds, because I set the marker after I realize something great was said, not before it. :) I have to do that with every marker made with the mobile device.

    OPPORTUNITY: I believe you would be the only recording application which actually solves this problem for journalist, marketers and others.

    if you solve the problem I would…

  16. Locking the Manuscript

    In an organisation that has multiple recording studios It is common to prepare the structure in advance, send it to a studio and after the recording someone does a quality check on the end product.
    One of those checks is very evident: checking if the structure of the book is intact.

    Hindenburg ABC has already a difference between a reading mode and edit mode on the manuscript but we believe we could gain more security if you could activate an overall lock on the entire manuscript. For example with a menu option, or with a lock button on the manuscript…

  17. Enable Win10 shortcut on Narration View window for moving to another monitor

    In a studio-environment it can be quite messy when you need to drag the Narration View window with the mouse to an external monitor for the reader in the cabin. You don't see that monitor, so it is a bit odd.

    Windows 10 has a set of very nice shortcuts for Window management. Although the shortcut for maximizing (Windows key + arrow up) works perfectly fine, the combination Windows key + SHIFT + arrow left/right doesn't.

    With Windows key + SHIFT + arrow left/right you can move a window between monitors. This is a very handy shortcut! This works with…

  19. Jump to previous/next marker

    Currently PgUp/PgDn navigates to the previous/next event. Often there are quite many of these events because of the numerous splices. It would be a nice feature to have a shortcut that only jumps to markers (and maybe cue points) ignoring splices in between.

  20. Warning when overwriting a file when publishing

    I produce a podcast every day, and do this by trying to remember to "save as" a new file every day. I don't always remember.

    When publishing audio, Hindenburg never checks if you're overwriting a file that already exists. This is not what normally happens on MacOS or Windows - you're normally told "do you want to overwrite this file?" or something - and this behaviour ought to be the default within Hindenburg, to my mind.

    (I can see the merits of being able to switch an error message like this off, too).
