* NEW TOOL: HINDENBURG - Audio Editing Software *
Transom is always interested in tools that make radio storytelling easier,
better, and cheaper. Lately, our Tools Editor Jeff Towne has been testing
some alternatives to ProTools and just test-drove Hindenburg from the
Danish Company, Nsaka, and finds it has the advantage of being designed
specifically for "us". Jeff says, "It's built by radio people for making
radio stories, podcasts and other documentary-style productions, rather
than multi-track music projects. The developers seem intent on keeping the
program simple and stable, easy to learn and use, even by non-technical
And they have a free version. For both Mac and PC. Check it.

"While we at Transom are not quite ready to abandon Pro Tools for all our
audio productions, Hindenburg is more than sufficient for many of them, and
provides a less-expensive, less-daunting entry point for reporters and
producers who wish to concentrate more on telling the story, and less on
the technique of digital editing."
