- On Windows the "Plug-Ins" folder is in: Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\audacity\Plug-Ins
- On Mac place them in Audacity's "Plug-Ins" folder at ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/Plug-Ins.
- On Linux, the "plug-ins" folder is in usr/share/audacity if you installed an Audacity package supplied by your distribution, or usr/local/share/audacity if you compiled Audacity from source code. Alternatively, create a directory called .audacity-files in your home folder and then create a plug-ins or plugins folder inside that. Audacity can currently load Nyquist plug-ins from other locations, but it is recommended to use the Linux locations listed above. In particular, ~/.audacity-data/Plug-Ins is now deprecated as a location for Nyquist plug-ins, but at the moment can still be used for these.

Use the latest Audacity version
More recent Nyquist effects may not appear in old versions of Audacity or may not work correctly. It is recommended to use the current version of Audacity which is always available on the Audacity website.
If you do use an older version of Audacity there may be no Effect Manager. In that case you must place the NY file in the "Plug-ins" folder as above, then restart Audacity.
