Hindenburg Broadcaster

Hindenburg is packed with features developed for and with audio journalists. The list is long. Here are a few highlights:

 

 

Many more features can be found in Hindenburg Broadcaster. Outstanding features can be found in the Feature list.
But sometimes less prominent features, like “Insert Special” and “Snap Regions” become personal favourites.
Many such features can be found in the Online Guide.
Video tutorials are also available for guidance and inspiration.

 

Help is at hand if you have any questions or run into problems. Our support team is always happy to answer questions. 

 

Hindenburg Broadcaster is a unique DAW made for journalists. Do complex multitrack editing with ease. Record Skype calls and upload the story to watch folders, archives or podcast.

Hindenburg has all the tools an audio journalist needs.

Setting correct broadcast levels can be tricky. 

Hindenburg is the first DAW to be a fully Loudness-compliant audio editor. Levels are set automatically to broadcast standards. If you are a European broadcaster, levels are set to -23 LUFS.  PRSS has defined -24 LUFS as the recommended level for the US market. 

Automating the levels saves hours in production and delivers consistent radio segments. 

Hindenburg Broadcaster also comes with two built-in Loudness meters for monitoring. 

 

Sound is your radio station's brand, and automated equalisation makes sure the radio talent has the same on-air sound every time. 

No more spending time with complicated filters. One click and the EQ is set. 

 

Publishing a radio segment can be a time-consuming task. 

The audio needs to be published to different destinations, like a watch folder at the radio station. Saved in an archive or uploaded as a podcast. Multiple files in multiple formats and levels. 

With the Publish tool multiple destinations can be set up in advance. 

Use FTP, dira!, NPRone, PRX, Soundcloud and more.  

 

The output file type and level can be pre-set.
Levels can be loudness normalised to: -23,-24,-20,-16 LUFS.

“As it turns out, you can make great-sounding productions without tweaking every fade for an hour, without creating complicated mixer-routines, without stacking 17 plug-ins on every channel...”
