For Audacity 1.2.x on any platform you need the VST Enabler plug-in before your VST plugins in your Plug-Ins directory will be recognised. You can get it from here: [http://www.audacityteam.org/vst/]

VST plugins need to be placed directly in Audacity/plugins in order for them to show up in the Effect menu. The next time you open Audacity, the Plug-ins will be in your Effects menu. Synth plugins and others that generate signal rather than processing it will appear in the generate menu, and signal analysis plugins in the Analyse menu.

VST support in audacity is not complete for two reasons - Steinberg places restrictions on the use of the VST SDK code, and there are a very wide range of plugins from many sources, all of which it is impossible to test. Please let us know about plugins that do not work properly in audacity.

Plug-ins with a graphical interface won't display that GUI in audacity, but all the controls should be correctly exposed in a basic slider interface.

Reports of plug-ins that work well

Voxengolampthruster (a VST amp simulator), Voxengo-Dot-Com has about 8 HIGH QUALITY FREEWARE Vst pluggins. Please, post lists of plug-ins that work well with Audacity, to save others time... Buzzroom VintageMaximizer beta works fine, and it's free. Ambince, the best free (donationware) reverb also work

Questions and Answers

I have installed the VST Enabler plugin by copying "VST Enabler.dll" to the Audacity plugins directory (C:\Program Files\Audacity\Plug-Ins). However, when I apply a VST effect to a selection, it results in silencing the entire selection (the whole waveform becomes all zero). I have tested this with the MoogFilter and Classic EQ plugins. On the other hand, plugins like "mda Bandisto" work fine. Could someone please help?

I insert the VST plugins into the plugins folder but they still don't show up in the effects toolbar. I have the VST Enabler. If you know what is wrong email me at Negativecreep351 at hotmail dot com [Never publish your e-mail as [email protected], or spambots will shred your inbox!]. I will appreciate it.

I am having the same problem as Ngegativecreep! PLEASE HELP US!!

I am trying to use some SimulAnalog GuitarSuite VST plugins (amp modelers) with Audacity, specifically the JCM900 and Rednef Twin plugins. I use the VST enabler, and both show up in the Effects menu, but when I press OK to apply the effect, the whole Audacity program crashes. Can you help me please?

none of those guitar suite plugs work in audacity, unfortunately...pink jimi photon


For all problems, there is a recent bug in working vst enabler together with the mac. In Windows most of the VST Plugins work fine, but in MAC nothing happens or system crashes.

I am using a pc and the plugins don't show up. I also noticed that the plugins that came in the plugin folder with Audacity don't show up either.PROBLEM SOLVED. Download and run the installer version instead of the zip version.

I've tried both the installer and the zip files. The plugin files are not included in either. Using newest version. The address for help is also non-functional. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ here is A-Z of VST plugins that all work well with audacity 1.2.3 on Win XP (most work on win 98 as well)..)...ALL FREEWARE or DEMOS....sorry, don't have time to look up URLS for 323 + plugins...google the names, and you should find them hopefully, i found all of them surfing the net, most thru google...many will lead you to new sites with more plugins as well...i will update this with yet more plugins at my earliest opportunity.all of these have been tested and do work in audacity!!! happy surfing!!!
