  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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...

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
