  1. 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.

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

    • 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

      This would be great for Hindenburg.

        • 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!

          • More icons

            Loving the program
            but it would be nice to have edit icons such as 'Shuffle Trim' or 'Slide audio inside region' on the top edit bar and Loop, Play selection' and 'Rehearse' icons on the bottom play section

            • Improve Journalist PRO

              After a good month of using Journalist PRO every week I have these suggestions to make this product better and more competitive with the current marketplace of DAWs.

              - Ability Save session as template
              - Clock removable and visible when in another app
              - Ability to make individual tracks different heights
              - Makers 1 and 2 should not be in/out
              - I should be able to drop a marker in the tracks playback/record area even if the “Marker” window is highlighted. This is VERY important.
              - ability to delete ALL markers Select all markers to delete
              - Shuffle trim and…

              • Make recoding and editing waaaaay quicker.

                Three things:
                1. The first 2 markers used always have an "In/Out" designation. That means that all my sessions that have markers will begin with Marker 3. Kind of silly, no? The "In/Out" selection would better be available only in Edit mode, or when I consciously drag over a selection. Then, if it were available, I could preview the edit by playing it when I hit the spacebar. Then I could Commd+X if I wanted it deleted.

                2. If a person accidentally clicks on the "Markers" window when recording OR playing they can no longer drop a marker. This is…

                • Upload to Amazon S3

                  I'm thinking of using Amazon S3 for my audio files. Since S3 doens't have traditional ftp access, it would be great if Hindenburg supported S3 upload.

                  • 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.

                    • Minimize Clipboard Groups / Folders Within Groups

                      I would love both the ability to quickly minimize or expand a particular clipboard group and the ability to have folders within groups that can also be quickly minimized or expanded.

                      Having to manually expand each group can be quite clunky when there are several groups in the clipboard, especially on a smaller screen.

                      Thanks!

                      • Ability to hide tracks from the workspace and mixer window

                        Ever since Avid's move to a subscription based ownership model I've been trying out DAWs to take over from ProTools. I do a lot of work producing radio programs so Hindenburg caught my interest. I just downloaded the Trial and am pretty impressed with Hindenburg's easy interface. I figured out most things in a few clicks and only had to look up a couple of things... BUT here are a couple ideas that would make my life easier.
                        1) the ability to hide tracks. I like to use a Master channel for my metering and limiting plug-ins. But once I've…

                        • 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.

                          • Apply effects live/in real-time (Studio Link support)

                            As of now, Hindenburg Journalist (Pro) is one of those rare DAWs that can only apply effects during playback.
                            But: For some (live) applications we need to apply effects in real-time.

                            I'm specifically talking about the new Skype-Killer called "Studio Link" (basically Skype with way better quality, no account, no delay, direct recording in your DAW and only browser-based for your guests in the near future). This plugin demands processing in real-time in order to work.

                            • 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.

                              • Skype to Skype - Good to Great

                                Being able to record phone calls via Skype is good but it would great if we could record conversations Skype user to Skype user. The fidelity is superior using VOIP than using the phone system. i would still want to be able to record my studio mic into the transmit side.

                                I hope that makes sense.

                                Thanks

                                  • Exporting all tracks dry

                                    I would love to have an option for one-button exporting. I use Hindenburg for editing and like to do my mastering in a different program, so having the possibility to export all tracks in one go would be lovely. (Extra points for having the option to disable all channel effects during the export.)

                                    • Custom File Names, IOS 10 fix, Dual Mono record and others

                                      Hindenburg:

                                      First, I love your iPhone app and use it all the time. I am not a journalist, but a musician, and I find your app the easiest to use for getting ideas down quickly. The scrubbing is great amongst many other features.

                                      However, there are a few things I would love to see.

                                      * in IOS 10 the interface is not correct and has some artifacting around the playback line

                                      * MOST IMPORTANT: Able to custom name audio files especially for easy ID in iTunes file sharing. I can rename Sessions in the Sessions window, but those file names…

                                      • Give ability to reduce track size even smaller

                                        Often in one session I end up working with 20 tracks. I would love the ability to see them all on the screen at the same time. Currently there's a fairly large Minimum track height. Can that easily be changed?

                                        • 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...
