Nyquist plug-ins may be available as plain text files with the file extension .NY, or as a ZIP archive file. The NY file must be extracted from the ZIP archive before it can be used.
To install Nyquist plug-ins, place the NY file in the Plug-Ins folder inside the Audacity installation folder.
- On Windows computers, this is usually at C:\Program Files\Audacity ( or C:\Program Files\Audacity 1.3 Beta (Unicode) in legacy 1.3 versions ). On 64-bit Windows this directory will be "Program Files (x86)" then as appropriate.
- On Mac OS X, it is usually under /Applications.
- On Linux this is usually /usr/share/audacity/ if you installed a repository package of Audacity or /usr/local/share/audacity if you compiled Audacity. Note: You must log in as root to access /usr. Repository packages of Audacity may overwrite this folder. An easier alternative may be to create ~/.audacity-files/plug-ins/ in your home folder (the "." in the path means it is a hidden folder).
Restart Audacity, then the plug-ins will appear underneath the divider in the "Effect", "Generate" or "Analyze" menus.
In the lists below, click a "Downloads" link to go to the page for Generate, Effect or Analyze plug-ins, or click the individual links to go directly to the description of that plug-in. Each description has links to View and Download the plug-in.
- Left-clicking the View link displays the plug-in code in your browser. You can right-click over the link and "Save Target As " or "Save Link As" to download the NY file.
- Left-clicking the Download link will download the same NY file archived inside a ZIP file. The ZIP archive may also contain help files or other useful information. The contents of the ZIP file must be extracted before they can be used.
- If left-click does not download the ZIP correctly, right-click over the link and "Save Target As " or "Save Link As" instead.
- Plug-ins denoted in these lists as "Type 3 plug-in" will not function correctly in Audacity 1.0, 1.1.x, 1.2.x or 1.3.0 to 1.3.3 inclusive.
- Some plug-ins may be denoted as requiring a specific minimum version of Audacity. The current Audacity version should support all listed plug-ins unless otherwise stated.
