It would be great to see a version released which supports the M1/ARM architecture.83 votes
Freeze playhead and scroll tracks
I would love fro be able to freeze the playhead and scroll the tracks. This way I can keep my eyes fixed on the playhead in the center and, when I stop playback to make an edit, I would know that the audio to be corrected is just to the left of the center of the screen. It would require much less eye and mouse movement.39 votes
Fixed playhead is unfortunately not something we can do in the current version, but we are hoping we can implement it in the upcoming 2.0
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...

This is in our backlog for features in Hindenburg 2.0.
We are still working on it and how to be able to bring more news regarding the development.
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.28 votes
I routinely edit 4-6 hour long podcasts with multiple tracks, some of which only contain short interview snippets. Although I have streamlined my workflow with Hindy considerably, now and then a minor mistake on my part can lead to massive problems. For example: If I cut (ctrl+x) something out of the project and forget to select all tracks, the audio is no longer arranged in the same way that I want it to. Yes, this is visible but when projects become this large, even on a bigger screen you might not be able to spot a mistake only a minute long in a six hour project. Yes, I can partially avoid this by grouping audio from different tracks together but that function has its own pitfalls and is no sure way to prevent this.
What I am proposing is an analoge to the de-bugging feature we find in coding: A function that automatically checks the overall/master audio of the project for silences or overlapping audio files (of course, quite often this is something we actually want: background music or people talking at the same time etc. Usually though, I work with an edited version of the main spoken word part of my audio and then add music, interview snippets and commercials), highlighting those as a de-bugger would source code and then let us browse through them to see, if there actually is a problem. It would be best if we could tell the de-bugger to not involve chosen tracks in this analysis in order to prevent mass-bug detection if we have a background sound/music track somewhere in the project.
This would really make my work a whole lot easier.

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.15 votes
It is a good idea. I’ll add it to the Backlog.
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.15 votes
Support for double-ender recordings (SquadCast, Ringr, Zencastr, etc.)
Since quality from Skype and Google Hangouts is often dodgy (not studio quality), and not fool-proof (e.g. difficult to get secondary, back-up recordings), I use SquadCast and Ringr as my preferred platforms for double-ender recordings. It would be fantastic if Hindenburg Journalist PRO could natively support dealing and integrating with one or more of these platforms.14 votes
Improved handling of cue points
Working with cue points is very uncomfortable, they are not listed in the marker window, so it's hard to keep an overview. Could you list them in there or give them their own window?12 votes
You know how it goes: you're editing a multitrack file, think you're deleting portions from all the tracks and five minutes later realize you'd only activated one track, thus pushing much of the project out of sync.
Cmd-z to the rescue, but that means losing all the cuts you've made.
So what about a way to restore the sync between two or more audio files? I'm not quite sure how to implement it UI/UX wise, but I'm pretty sure that even a clumsy version would be super helpful.
Very preliminary sketch of the result attached in clumsy screenshots.12 votes
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.11 votes
When my colleague tried to save her project at the end of the day, Hindenburg crashed and her whole work was gone when she reopend the project.
Is there something like an auto-save feature that prevents such incidents in the future?10 votes
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")10 votes
I would love to change the keyboard settings and use my own shortcuts. Is there a way to change the commands on Hindenburg (currently trial version, Windows).

Maybe you can already do this, but it would be great if you could mark the audio track AS you're recording.8 votes
Automatic crossfades for all cuts
I use Hindenburg for podcast editing, and one thing I'd love is the ability to shift-select across several cuts and hit 'F' (or some other key/combination) to add crossfades between every cut in the selected region. Right now, I have to crossfade across all my cuts manually, and it's very time consuming. If I could pave over abrupt cuts and clipped breaths automatically, it would be so, so useful. Thanks!8 votes

Tell us what plug-ins Hind works with.
I'm initially interested in Izotope (individual plug-ins now, more later) Acon and Plug-in Alliance. I'm only interested in their products that might be of use for a spoken-word podcast. Can these be launched from inside Hindy? If so, my idea is to do another one of your very thorough videos (truly), and show us how. If not, my idea is to make that possible...then do the video.
Thanks for listening.7 votes
Add an adjustable true peak option for Journalist Pro
I love the option to change loudness targets when publishing or exporting in Journalist Pro. I would also like to have the option to change the true peak limit to -1.5, -2, or -3 dB to allow for different platform and media needs.7 votes
Keep the display centered on the cursor position when zooming in
I think I've previously submitted this, but just in case I haven't...7 votes
We will see if we can improve on the Zoom settings. But here is a Tip. If you press F6, then the playhead will center.
