  1. exporting metadata

    I'm working on creating a multimedia slideshow. I'd love to do it in Hindenburg, but Hindy doesn't offer all the visual transition effects and video editing that I need. So I'm using Adobe Premiere instead. However, I'd like to log my tape in Hindy before importing it to Premiere. Is there a way of transferring the metadata on my tracks in Hindy to Premiere? I want to label my clips in Hindy and then have the labels show up in Premiere. Is there a way to do that?

  2. More flexible clipboards

    It would be nice to be able to have two columns in the clipboard section, or create a custom grid pattern so I'm not limited by the height of my screen (I currently have my clipboards on a separate screen than the rest of Hindenburg Journalist, and also using the max number of clipboards)

  3. Merge multiple sessions in HABC

    When we produce large books (studie literature) or books containing several languages, several narrators are working on the same project at the same time, readig different parts.
    It would be a nice if we could merge these parts, included structure, pagenum or other elements. Importing audiofiles and adding these elements afterwards takes to much time..

  4. Cursor behavior for marking and selecting

    When I listen to my raw audio, I want to select clips that I will put on the clipboard. To do that I will set marks. But the cursor behavior changes when I hover over the mark in such a way that I cannot begin a selection there. So now I delete a mark in order to start the selection there and move the outpoint to the other mark. But that deletion is just one step that hinders my workflow. It is cumbersome. I'd love a way to have a little space above the mark where I can begin to…

  5. Record Timer

    I've decided to use Hindenburg's interface to transfer archival interviews stored on DAT to my computer. A helpful feature would be a timer that would stop recording at a pre-set length.

    All the best.

  6. A bit difficult to move the white forward and back track at det bottom

    Is it posible to... in an easier way move the 'back and forth'- arrow at det bottom. I would like to have it right under the recordingarea. But it is not easy to move up. And also maybe make it a bit bigger/higher/wider for easier access.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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
