    • 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.

      • Test

        Posting this because there isn't a way to find the status of requested features. Should have a link on the support section of the web site

        • Publish to MixCloud

          It would be nice to be able to Publish to MixCloud, which is in my opinion a better podcast platform than SoundCloud...
          Thanks

          • a few suggestions

            Hi there, I just started using Hindenburgh Pro since joining Annie Fredrickson, who I believe you met when you were touring Australia. Very sleek and powerful and I enjoy using it. But I have a couple of suggestions that may make it a bit easier to use- requiring fewer clicks and adjustments. Apologies if the functionality is already there and I simply haven't discovered it. Or if they are just habits I've picked up from using other software, and I just need to get more used to Hindy.
            All the best, Mic

            • Printable list of clips (w/timestamps?)

              In my workflow, I like to step away from the editor and look at the story as it stands on paper, to get a different perspective about its flow. One way I do this is to take screengrabs of the timeline at a level of zoom that shows the clip names, then print them out... it would be SO much faster and better if I could print a simple text file that listed the clips in the workspace in the order they appear - maybe even a printable version of the workspace? The most important thing would be that the…

              • Menu button to shrink or expand timeline to show full project.

                Add a menu button to show full project in the timeline. Beats having to repeatedly click the 'Out -' button.

                  • Voice Profiler on Field recorder

                    Just testing out Hinderburg Journalist and the Field Recorder (lite) for my podcast "Sleep With Me".

                    Really awesome products and impressed with it so far.

                    Any plans to add the voice profiler to the field recorder...just in case I wanted to test out recording and editing in the field?

                    Do you offer a discount if I purchase the Field Recorder and Hindenberg Jounrlaist or the pro version?

                    Thanks,

                    Drew

                    • The ability to cut clips and have it affect the whole session

                      I really love the new feature to cut a clip and only affect the region, instead of the whole track. Similarly it would be great to have a combination of hot keys that would allow you to cut and have it affect the entire session. The work around is create in and out points highlight all the tracks of the session and hit x, but I do this so much one I have a piece going it would be nice to hold command + (another key) + x and have the whole session move in sync without selecting every track.…

                      • Ctrl+arrows = super speed rew/ff

                        Hi, I'd like an option, for example ctrl + arrow keys, that would speed up ff/rew. Sometimes I want to run through audio faster than it's doing now. A modifier key (ctrl) that speeds it up a lot would be great.

                        Thanks!

                        • Make importing from a CD faster?

                          Some of our outside producers give me their shows on a disk with several tracks. With Soundforge I could import the entire CD in less than 2 minutes. On Journalist Pro I'm sitting at 5 minutes and only halfway done importing the CD. Maybe it's due to each track being normalized during the import? I DO like that feature.

                          • Jump-Key ( forward / backward ) to the next eevent

                            At the moment it is only possible to jump to the end or the beginning of a track.
                            in some time it is necessary, to jump EXACTLY to the beginning or end of a clip.
                            Positioning with the Cursor is not precise enough.

                            This function should work only for a marked Soundtrack.

                            • 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.

                              • Hindenburg Journalist (Pro) 64 Bit edition

                                By now, there are many 64 Bit DAWs and plugins. 64 Bit does offer some advantages over old 32 Bit software, especially when in larger projects.

                                Please provide a 64 Bit version of Hindenburg Journalist (Pro).

                                • More options while working on multiple individual files

                                  I do a lot of shorts like "A Moment in Time" and "90 Second Naturalist". As it is, all I can do is right-click->export selection about 30 times. an option to export multiple files individually would be amazing (something like Audacity has). This forces me to use Audacity for half of my work.

                                  It would be nice to have more metadata options that aren't JUST for the whole session. All I have right now is the option to change the name, which doesn't help me input the necessary information for ENCO.

                                  Thank you for your responses so far, and keep…

                                  • A preview window for clipboard items, similar to video editors

                                    I'd love to be able to scrub through items in the clipboard, mark in and out, and only bring that section onto the timeline. Also, to type in timecodes from transcripts and bring you to that exact time in the clip. I want this feature so bad, I actually made a video that shows you what I'm talking about: https://youtu.be/MK_1uXhWFRU

                                    • 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.

                                      • Add a "Publish to local folder" to the Publish tab.

                                        This could be useful if you would like to publish to your web services, a 'dropbox' derivate and to a local test folder at the same time.
                                        In short, this means to make the export dialog available in the publish tab.

                                        • Fix "save as"

                                          Currently when I use an existing project as a template for a new one Hindenburg only adds a new session file ("Project.nhsx"), not a new File directory ("Project Files"). That makes it impossible (or at least risky to the uninformed user) to save the new session file in another directory. It makes it also harder to share a project, as the File directory is cluttered with files which may or may not be needed after "saving as".
