  2. MIDI or HUI control

    My workflow would greatly improve if I could use a control surface/mixer interface with Hindenburg. Most of them use MIDI to connect (e.g. behringer, presonus faderport, etc.). It's incredibly disappointing that software this expensive has no compatibility with any of the control surfaces I use.

  3. Hotkey/Icon for "Properties..."

    It would be nice if I could quickly access the "Properties..." option without having to click through the File menu. Either a hotkey or an icon on the top bar would be lovely!

  5. Custom Keyboard Shortcuts

    Custom keyboard shortcuts are the way to streamline the workflow. So far, I find the predefined shortcuts clumsy and awkward. I know you're product is different, but if there's one thing you can emulate from Adobe Audition, it's the ability to create custom keyboard shortcuts. that's going to be a game changer.

  7. View > Cue Points

    The menu item View > Markers does not show Cue Points which is a pity. I propose inserting a new menu item View > Cue Points which shows a list of all cue points.

    Cue Points are tricky as you can have multiple versions of the same cue point at different places in the timeline.
    As Curpoint are related to the audio – then it will also move, copy, delte, tase …as the audio does. So having a Cue Markers list is a bit of a moving target.
    It’s possible to set and export other markers, if that is what is needed. You could for instance use the Chapter Markers and then export them as text.

  8. Make Hindenberg behave more like an NLE

    Hi there, I'm a former video producer. I've been using DAWs like Hindeberg, ProTools, and Audition for a while now. Given that DAWS are almost always designed for something other than podcast/radio/narrative workflow, I think Hindenberg should consider adopting some of the workflow features of NLEs like Avid or Premiere. Specifically, I am talking about having a separate window for your source material, where you can type in a timecode, or make a selection, and then insert it into wherever your cursor is on the project timeline. This would be a far superior way to work than making a ton…

  9. Add navpoints on audio import

    Often, when producing DTBs, my team is dealing with audio files which has already been logically organized according to a book structure element, whether that is primary headings, or pages. What would be an incredible addition from our perspective is the ability to place navpoints in bulk at the beginning of each audio file.

    An example case would be creating a DAISY 2.02 DTB in which the source audio files each represent a page of text. In the existing HABC build, a user would have to Tab->Click "Page" (or key-press) to add each nav element.

    I'm happy to discuss this…

  11. Mixing Stereo Down to Mono

    Instead of splitting stereo tracks to the left and right, I wish there were a way to combine them together, "mixing it down to mono," for a fuller sound. Audacity does this reasonably well.

  12. Use Multiple Cores for Book Exporting

    Having observed many a book exported in HABC (NLS), I've noticed that Hindy uses a single core to encode audio files even if there are multiple cores available (see attached). I think it would speed up the process (and reduce the thumb-twiddling) if Hindy could make use of all available cores.

  13. EQ preset

    Knowing the frequency response of the microphones I am using (e.g. Sennheiser MD 42) when working on recorded material I always find myself repeating the same EQ settings for the same source (microphone).

    It would be great to be able to save personal presets.

    (like already with the more complex "voice profile")

  14. MacBook Pro Touch Bar Support

    I noticed that Journalist does not include support for the MBP Touch Bar. It might be useful to have some of the basic editing commands, record button, channel muting, or other options available using the interface.

    I realize this is only available to a small subset of overall users, so I understand it's not a priority.

  16. A horizontal line for sound level

    I'd love to be able to place a line, that you could see and that would reach from one end of the track window to the other side, at a certain decibel level. That would help set all fades in different places to the same level. So if I always start my vocals over music when the music has faded to a certain point, I can then easily replicate that by seeing a horizontal line, which can be adjusted up or down, to ensure that I align my next inserted vocal at the point the music reaches the same level.

  17. Coloured boxes

    Hi Hindenburg,

    I'd love a feature where I could change the default blue colour to red or green or whatever, depending on my editing process.

    When editing, I have to use a separate notepad with time markings to say what needs to be changed. But I'd love to be able to highlight the audio boxes with different colours (red for re-record narration, green for adjusting P-pops, yellow for audio quotes that need to be verified by an independent source etc). This is how I run my email software - different colours for different types of emails/work. This is super handy…

  18. Close file without closing Hindenburg

    It would be nice to be able to close a session without having to Exit from Hindenburg.

    Most similar programs let you do that.

    Thanks!

  19. Text/Narration parallel to the audio wave

    In times when more and more audio transcriptions in better quality is available (e.g. Trint), it would be nice to combine these transcriptions with its time stamps and attach them to the audio in Hindenburg exactly in time, like it is possible in Audacity with captions.

  20. More radiant color for Solo

    When we click on "Mute", the color change is a nice bright yellow. But when we click on "Solo" the color change is not as noticeable. Please make the activation of "Solo" the same bright yellow as "Mute". Perhaps even make it "Bold".

    I have many times scratched my head wondering why a track can't be heard. Then I squint at "Solo" as see that it has been activated.

    Thanks!
