Audacity supports Nyquist  effects on all operating systems, and includes a number of Nyquist plug-ins. You can download additional Nyquist plug-ins, or write your own. Nyquist Plug-ins are merely plain text files which can be read with any simple text editor. For example you can load the .lsp files from the Audacity "Nyquist" folder or the .ny files from the Audacity "Plug-Ins" folder into your favourite text editor and try to find out how they work. You can easily modify the ny files to do things like change a plug-in's default parameters. That's how many people learned Nyquist programming!

Nyquist and Audacity Computer Music Workshop
Held from June 1-7, 2008 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Musicians, composers, educators and students can get practical experience in hands-on interactive sessions learning about Sound Synthesis and Algorithmic Composition using Nyquist and Audacity. A certificate will be given to all students who complete the workshop. Additional information, registration, housing and travel information at http://music.web.cmu.edu/cmw .


There is some introductory information about programming in Nyquist on this page  of the main Audacity website . Additional information about programming Nyquist plug-ins can be found in the German forum  (documents are in English language). If you are especially interested in Nyquist in Audacity, we strongly recommend subscribing to our audacity-nyquist mailing list .

We host a large collection of third-party Nyquist plug-ins for use in Audacity. Simply place them in the Plug-Ins folder inside your Audacity installation folder and restart Audacity. Your installation folder is usually under C:\Program Files on Windows computers, or under Mac Hard Disk > Applications on OS X. The new plug-ins will be visible in either the Effect Menu, or sometimes in the Analyze or Generate menus.

There is no Nyquist console, but you can use Effect > Nyquist Prompt to run a single Nyquist command. Code for Nyquist plug-ins that generate audio can be quickly tested (without having to select audio first) with this Nyquist Generate Prompt .
