Downloading or viewing plug-ins

  • Download the plug-in:
    • Left-click the download link to download the file in almost all web browsers. If this only displays the plug-in code, right-click the download link and select "Save Link As...", Save As..." or some similar "Save" or "Download" command. For further information, please see the documentation for your web browser.
  • View the plug-in code:
    • Chrome: Download any plug-in once, then right-click over the download button at the bottom of the browser and choose "Always open this file type".
    • Firefox: Open Options or Preferences, then click the "General" section at the top. In the "Downloads" section, choose "Always ask me where to save files". When you click the download link, you now have an extra option to open the file in a chosen application instead of save it.
    • Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge: Right-click the download link, choose any of the "Open" options then in the box that appears, click the "Open" button. In Edge, this also downloads the file.
    • Safari: Downloaded plug-ins will automatically open in your default text editor after download. You can disable automatic open after download in Safari Preferences.


Installing plug-ins

To install a Nyquist plug-in, place its ".NY" file in the Audacity "Plug-ins" folder. In Audacity 2.1.1 or later, use Effect > Manage... or Effect > Add / Remove Plug-Ins... to open the Effect Manager. Select the plug-in(s) you want to install, then click Enable and OK. {{Hint|1=
