Magic Levels

- adaptive levels, auto mix, auto ducking and de-bleed - with a single click.

Magic Levels are an extension of the regular Auto levels. While Auto levels will set the correct overall level for a region, then the Magic levels are content aware.
Magic can set adaptive levels - the volume changes within the region.
But Magic levels can more that that. It’s also aware of other selected regions and can set levels that respond to the level in other regions. This can be used for auto mix, auto ducking and de-bleed.

See the tutorial


Merge - Smart Regions

Working with multiple regions can be tricky. Moving then together as one or trying to make volume changes to them. 
With *Merge” you cab create a Smart Region. It’s a region that swallows up all the small regions, but acts like a single region. 
You can add fades, ducks, soundbeds to the Smart Region and even edit it. 
But all the small regions are still living in the belly of the Smart Region - and you can at any time Un-Merge the Smart Region and continue editing your original material.


> See the tutorial 



Top & Tail

Trim the beginning and end of a region with a single click. Just place the playhead where you would like to edit the region. 
Trim the beginning of the region with Q and the end with W.
Preserve the sync

When working on complex multitrack sessions it it important to be able to edit without affecting the current work. 
Top & Tail has a trick up it’s sleeve. Holding Shift while trimming the region will only affect the current region. 

> See the tutorial


Music report

Do you need to hand in Music Reports for copyrighted music in your show? 
Then you w how long this can take. 
With Music Report you will get all the information you need to file your report.

Loudness Levels after FX
Help try out this feature where the autolevel measures after the effect on the track. We have found that it works in most cases, but there are some situations when measuring after compression the results can be counterintuitive.
This has to do with the fact that we are using loudness to set levels - and loudness is designed to eliminate the need for compression.
But, please do try it out and let us know what you think. If you would like to try it out, then you can open the features from Permissions.

Time-Stretch in Hindenburg is reel time. No preview or rendering is necessary. You can work directly in the track and see how your final work will be. It’s also non destructive, so you can always go back to the original audio. 


Time-stretch works best for minor adjustment with -10 & +10 % 

See how it works


Open in ProTools

Save sessions in a AAF format that can be read by Protools ™


Stations using ProTools can now accept work from producers that work in Hindenburg Journalist PRO.

See how it works



Open PT in Hindenburg

Audio offset, gain and fades are all preserved from the original ProTools session. 


See how it works

New Loudness levels

  • -14
  • -18

-16 LUFS has been the loudness standard for podcasts for some time. As users have gained more experience with loudness over the past years, new levels have come into play.
At Hindenburg we try to limit the options to what is industry standards. The latest loudness levels are added to meet the audio market. Smart speakers like Alexa Echo are recommending -14 LUFS, slightly louder than the -16 LUFS commonly used for Podcasts. At the other end BBC are recommending -18 LUFS for there productions.  





ASIO is used for multi channel audio devices.
ASIO stands for Audio Stream Input/Output. ASIO is a sound card driver protocol used by some multi channel audio devices. Hindenburg now supports ASIO.

Call Recorder integration with Skype is working again:

(PRO, Broadcaster, Educator) 


We have been struggling for some time to get Skype and Hindenburg to integrate as seamlessly as they did before Skype made changes to their API. And for that we apologise.


The good new is - we have found a solution! Here is a quick brush-up on how it works: 


> see how it works


On Mac OS, part of the solution is to use a small program called Soundflower, which allows you to route any audio signal from your computer to Hindenburg. Soundflower is now installed together with the latest version of Hindenburg.


On Windows we use a built-in routing system called "Communication devices". 


Linked Tracks improvements:

(all versions)


Hindenburg has been able to link tracks for some time. We were right chuffed about that until a very talented audio editor fra NPR pointed out a number of possible improvements. So now you can Break, Edit, Trim, Fade, Crossfade, Shuffle, Insert Silence and more when tracks are linked! Thanks very talented audio editor for kicking our butts!


> see how it works


Mute Regions:

(all versions)


It is now possible to mute individual regions. This can be practical for a quick preview of a mix - or muting part of a interview. Select the region and Cmd+M (Mac) or Ctrl+M to shut him up for a second!


> see how it works


OPUS & FLAC import:

(all versions)


Hindenburg already imports a long list of formats and converts them automatically to .wav for editing. 

Recently two really good compressions formats, FLAC and OPUS, are gaining popularity, so we have added them to the list.


> see how it works


OPUS & FLAC export:

(PRO, Broadcaster, Educator)



In addition our PRO users can now export to FLAC and OPUS. We are particularly impressed with how great OPUS sounds despite extreme compression. Please do try it out - even at very, very low bitrates it sounds amazing!







Version 1.60 - build 2124

Break / split on all tracks

A few weeks back it was pointed out that slitting regions on multiple tracks back a bit cumbersome. 

So we came up with a solution. 

Split on all tracks: Alt (all tracks)  + B (Break /Split)  



Draw bug fixed

When adjusting fades on a group of multiple regions, there was a bug when rendering the graphics. 

Thanks for pointing that one out - we had not tried that.

Version 1.52 Build 2092

Region Cut

This feature is also known as “The Lasse Edfast”. 

He was kind enough to point to a missing feature. 

The situation is that you are editing a large session with multiple tracks and edits. Everything is in Sync  - but you need to cut out a sentence. How to do this without messing up the sync. 

If only the edit only effected the region and not the entire track … 

So, with no further ado, we proudly introduce the latest Hindenburg feature “Region Cut”


>See the Tutorial






Version 1.51 Build 2090

Now you can option click on a region and have all subsequent regions selected. 



  • Alt + Cmd + Click region (Apple) 
  • Alt + Ctrl + Click region (Windows)


 > See the Tutorial



Bug fixes

“Could you please remove Air Play from the plug & play list?” has been a question frequently asked. This we fixed in build 2089. Unfortunately we created a bug at the same time. 

In Build 2090 Plug & Play is restored to it’s old self - just without AirPlay.

Open books as DOCX

I The latest addition to supported text formats is DOCX. It is practical to import a book directly into Hindenburg ABC and read directly from the screen. This way you can easily navigate the manuscript and record the book. This has been possible with ePub and xhtml - and now also DOCX. This will in particular be useful for anyone narrating books for ACX.


Version 1.32 Build 2260

ACX validation & export

If you are producing a book for ACX and are not to sure if you are upholding the ACX specifications, then Hindenburg Narrator can help.
The ACX export will validate the book you have created. A dialogue will tell you if your noise floor, levels and pauses are all as they should be.
The ACX export will then continue to export the book in single chapters - or headings.
