  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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?

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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!
                      Aengus Anderson

                      • 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.

                        • 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

                            • Noise Reduction

                              I get that you have to make money and one way to get people using the product is to offer an inexpensive version (Journalist) and hope they'll upgrade ... but it seems to me that you don't include the Noise Reduction tool in Journalist. The free program Audacity has it. So I find myself removing noise in Audacity then loading Hindenburg. To me, when it can be done for free, it doesn't make sense to not include it in Journalist. Noise Reduction would seem to be a fairly standard requirement.

                              • 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!

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.
