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 code can be tested using "Nyquist Prompt" under the Effect menu, or code for Nyquist plug-ins that generate audio can be quickly tested with Nyquist Generate Prompt.

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 .
