Would love multi-track recording
Multi track recording is now released as part of the 1.50 update.
Thank you for your patience and have fun :)

Multi-Track Recording is a must future feature. I am using Hindenburg for all podcast projects (Radio Nukular even scored as high as #1 on the German iTunes Charts) but that function is something that would make a great software perfect.

lol Just found out that i can not record a a panel discussion in Journalist Pro? Is this correct I have a multi channel sound card allowing discrete channels to be recorded yet am limited in Hindenburg to selecting only a stereo channel to record from ! What an oversight! at a retail cost of $375 per licence this falls way below expectations.!!! Most of the competition out there can do a simple multi channel recording..... My students love your app for its ease of use ... however once u get beyond a basic level of operation this is a massively limiting factor! Needs to be addressed ASAP.

Just because a podcast requires voices, doesn't mean it doesn't have any musical or terrestrial-radio elements to it. Hindenburg would be perfect for me if it did multitrack recording: yes, for a SPOKEN WORD podcast. Why limit our creativity by limiting the program? I know you had to prioritize certain features in the initial rollout, and I'm glad multi-tracking is on the to-do list for future versions. The sooner, the better!

A little tip: I do all the Podcast recording in GarageBand and use Hindenburg for editing. If you save a GarageBand project and rightclik the file you can Access the AIF files with "show package content" under... "media" i think....
hope that helps ;)

We are using Reaper and Soundflower for production and liverecording, because we need a third track for music (before the show starts),jingles and the intro. For podcasters a third track is essential to have a jingle/music/intro track. The next point is the live recording. That's a very important point to. When we are doing a live recording the Skypepartners must hear the intros/jingles etc. When that's done, we will instantly buy the Pro Version. :)
Thanks for your suggestion and clarification. I will create this as a separate Idea since the one you posted under was for our laptop products.
Thank you Chris,
I see that the App is not a DAW, but that is not what I expect. I use different handheld recorders, same that are used for reporters. There are many hand recorders that have a overdub function. It would not be nessecary to create different tracks. Just one single Overdub would be great.
Yes, for podcasters, multi-track (even a limited version) would be useful - to have each host recorded on their own track (usually no more than 4). That's the only real reason left to use a DAW (and why we record in another program but edit in HJP).
Chris, CEO of Hindenburg here. Thanks for your input.
It seems that we may have been a little unclear in our app description if you have understood it to mean that you can add multiple tracks. That is not the case, Field recorder is a single-track editor on iOS.
Our wording is that you can "Add additional recordings to your session. This could be speaks or background sounds and more." Since this is made as a handheld recorder for radio, this is something we did not expect to be interpreted in any other way.
Multi-track recording is a feature that would be useful and we still have it high on our To-Do list for our desktop apps.
I have to point out though that we make products for story-driven audio, not music production. There are so many fundamental differences in the needs of musicians and storytellers in a DAW, that we would compromise our whole product range by trying to accommodate the needs of musicians. In fact, the reason we started our company was that, before Hindy, storytellers are forced to use DAW's optimised for music ;).

For me as a musician is is necessary to record several tracks in one project. For example when I have an idea of a nice melody that I want to show my band members, I would like to record the chords, and in a second take I would like to record the melody. In the description of the App it says that you can add tracks such as background noises or comments. But in the lite version I don't see this Option. I don't understand why it isn't possible to simply create a second track, to make overdubs. Please tell me if this is possible in the pay version. I would also appreciate to see a demo of this.
By the way, I think that you could reach more people if you would listen to the feedback of professional musicians. They often use handhield recorders to practice or to record concerts and rehearsals.
Many podcasters in Germany are using Reaper. But it is great pain to use.
So if you could bring this to Hindenburg. I'd even pay for the pro version.
