Loudness - 16 LUFS ... again. 

In Hindenburg Journalist the publish target of -16 LUFS was accidentally changed to -14 LUFS.

Version 1.70 Build 2200

  • Time Stretch
  • Open Hindenburg in ProTools 
  • Open ProTools in Hindenburg
  • New Loudness Levels
  • ASIO 


Time Stretch

With Time Stretch it’s possible to make the audio slightly shorter or longer. 

This can be used to slightly adjust a Voice Track or to make changes to the segment time.

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. 

With the export format AAF allows Hindenburg producers to exchange work with ProTools ™ users. 

All tracks, audio offset gain settings and fades are ready for continued production. 

See how it works



Open PT in Hindenburg

Hindenburg can now open ProTools ™ sessions. 

The formats supported are:  


  • ptx
  • ptf


This is especially useful for former ProTools users that have switched to Hindenburg. Old session can be revisited. It can also be used when collaborating with producers using ProTools.

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.

Version 1.65 Build 2132

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

New Feature


“Select to end” is probably the feature most wanted by audio producers.

Hindenburg has had that feature for some time - but now we have improved it. 

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 


Skype problems solved

Lets us begin by apologising for any inconvenience this bug has caused. We do realise that you are dependent on the Call Recorder recording the Skype interview, without any fallouts. 

We have been trying to find the bug for some time and we are now happy to say that we found it. 



USB Microphone stereo input

Some USB microphones did not show up in the options list as a stere device. The input selector was greyed out. This has been fixed in Build 2090



Plug & Play 

Plug & Play had a bug in build 2089. 

“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.  



Version 1.51 Build 2088

New editing features have been developed based on user feedback. Here are a few of the latest additions:
