Vamp is a plug-in format developed by Chris Cannam (author of Rosegarden and Sonic Visualiser) for viewing and analysing the descriptive contents of music audio files. Typical things that a Vamp plug-in might calculate include the locations of moments such as note onset times, visual representations of the audio such as histograms, or curve data such as power or fundamental frequency.

Vamp can process selected audio and produce a label track with particular parts annotated with labels, based on various criteria.

Plug-in directories

  • Peter 20Mar17: removed (outdated links) for Vamp plug-ins - replaced with a link to the Manual page to avoid unnecessary duplication. Removed the P1

Currently Audacity only loads plug-ins from the standard directories defined by the Vamp SDK, not any of the Audacity-specific directories.

See this page in the Audacity Manual for where to locate your Vamp plug-ins.

Add / Remove Plug-ins

Selecting this option from the Effect Menu(or the Generate Menu or Analyze Menu) takes you to a dialog which enables you to load and unload Effects (and Generators and Analyzers) from Audacity. This enables you to customize your Effect Menu (Generate Menu or Analyze Menu) making it shorter or longer as required. For details see Manage Effects, Generators and Analyzers.
