  1. Having an undo button in the Narrative window in HABC

    Hi
    for easier access i would like to have an Undo button i the recording mode/narrative. The panel is so small at the top (on my normal laptop) and also at work, on a bigger screen, I have to lift my arm to press the button everytime i make a mistake. Not good when you are using the program every day. (i'll try to use the keyboard comands but easier with mouse...

    Best regards Christin

    • Session Name for easier iTunes sharing

      Hi!

      I am a musician and filmmaker and love your app for quickly recording and editing ideas. The one thing I want, however, is that I can name my session as soon as I open the app and then, most importantly, that that name shows up in the iTunes folder when I want to move it off my iPhone to my computer.

      Currently, the folder in iTunes File Sharing looks something like this: "2014-11-11 10-38-41 Files"

      I would like it to look like this: "Song Name" OR "Song Name 2014-11-11 10-38-41 Files" OR "2014-11-11 10-38-41 Files Song Name"

      I realize…

        Good point.
        The field recorder was implemented long before file sharing became available, so the internal format was sufficient back then.
        We’ll see if we can rename the file/folder on the fly if you give it a name in session properties.

        • Automate plugins

          This is the one feature that I still have to use Logic/Cubase or another DAW for.

          • Clipboard always visible

            Hi there!

            I would love, if the clipboard with all the clips that I extracted and named would be visible all the time – also if I switching from Hindenburg to, lets say, Microsoft Word, for writing the script parallel on a second screen.
            Now it is a problem. I switch to a different program then Hindenburg, and the clipboard disappears. So I cannot peak, which soundbites I can use in my manuscript.

            Thanks a lot!
            Florian

            • Ability to mute the person, that makes the call

              It would be good to be able to mute oneself, when the source is talking to avoid breathing and background-noise from myself.

              • Export all (or all selected) clips from the whole clipboard or a clipboard group

                I'd love to mark several clips in the clipboard and have them batch-exported automatically as separated single audio takes. This would on the one hand allow for reducing the project size dramatically if the original audio source is very large, i.e. an interview or material from a press conference etc.
                On the other hand this feature would help to forward single takes to the editorial office or to other applications.

                • empty bin

                  there needs to be a feature that allows you to empty all the unused takes once the seesion is done. These wav files are eating up my hard drive.

                  • Duplicate track

                    Once you have applied plugins to a track it would be very usefull to be able to copy or duplicate the track - complete with its plugins settings and perhapsalso audiofiles.

                    For example if I edit version one then I want to continue with the short version or the alternative edit version two.
                    Thats when I miss the duplicate track utility.

                    // thanks

                    • Preserve groups on clipboard import

                      When importing clipboards from project A with groups A1...A4 into project B all clips in group A1 are added to B1, A2 to B2, and so on. This also happens when groups have custom names. At least in this case it would make sense to add the custom named group as it is in project A as an additional group in project B. If groups in A and B have identical names or standard names, I would like to have a choice to either merge the groups as it is happening now or import them as additional groups.

                      • Add option to colorize portions of the tape

                        First, thanks for making this product. It's saved me so much time since I started using it.

                        I think if we could change portions of the tape for labeling purposes it would be useful in a number of ways. I mostly use your software to edit interviews for broadcast - and so a big part of the job is whittling down 15 minutes of tape to 10 minutes of interview. If I could colorize portions of the tape, then on the first pass through I could indicate which parts I definitely want to keep in, and which parts are "maybes."…

                          Hi Keith (and supporters ;),

                          Apologies for not responding earlier. We are looking at the option to provide colour-coding options in general. As you can imagine, there are many ways one could use colour-coding, some of them at odds with each other, so it will take us some time to document all the options and find the right solution. But we are taking this seriously, thanks again for the feedback.

                          Editing large projects with many clips, I regularly spend a lot of time scrolling through the clipboard to find a specific clip. It would be really nice to have a search field or other filters to narrow down the number of clips in the list.

                          • Move the order of headers in TOC

                            Would it be possible to move the order of the headers in TOC? At the moment of the recording the definive order is not always known, so it would be necessary tot move the headers with the connected audio in the right order.

                            • Plugin flexibility

                              Hi,
                              it would be great to have the opurtunity to move the plugins around a little bit not only on each track but also between the tracks.

                              For example if I on one track have put a limiter, eq and then a compressor in that order, I then might want to change the order or even insert another eq in between the signal chain to do a A-B test between two different eq's.
                              i'm a soundengineer and I use waves plugins wich works fine in Hindenburg theese days.

                              // thanks

                                • Noisegate

                                  Actually I am recording with different microphones and use the whole tracks with and without speach on them. So every track is a mixture from speaking and not speaking. This makes cutting for me much easier but when we sit next to each other of course the microphone(s) which are not active also get some sound from the speaker. To improve sound, a noisegate feature would be a good thing.

                                  thanks!

                                    Is it possible to add the following feature in your HABC program: at the moment we are using a Daisy recording tools which had the ability to produce data of the session time (how long is this project open) and the recorded time. Knowing this you can calculate if the narrator makes many mistakes or is an efficient reader or not. F.i. some narrators produce 60 minutes of spoken word in 120 minutes of recording. So this score is 50%. Other narrators produces less than 50% while some narrators are very efficient in the score of 70% or more. We…

                                      • Preserve Timestamps

                                        When Hindenburg copies audio files to the project directory it modifies their timestamp, even if the files are not being re-coded. I would prefer Hindenburg to preserve the "created" time stamp of the original file, so I could delete the original file and still know, when the recording was made.

                                        • Add nfs export to enable mounting as a network share

                                          None of the exporting options work for me apart from wired transfer into iTunes. I am currently using Audiofile Engineering Wave Editor on OSX.

                                          I can't find a useful way to transfer files wireless to my MacBook. Email can hardly handle such huge files. FTP is no longer practical since Maverick. Soundcloud is no local transfer.

                                          Of course, any WiFi transfer would be helpful. I haven't figured out how to use Bonjour yet.
