It should appear in the "Effect" menu (below the "line").
Did you extract the "tonecontrol.ny" file from the .ZIP archive?
Which version of Audacity are you using?

The "Preview" button is useful, though the default preview length is very short. To increase the Preview length, go to "Edit menu > Preferences > Playback". I generally find between 5 and 10 seconds to be suitable.
Also, select a "typical" portion of the track that you want to process as a test area - after using the Preview button and adjusting as necessary, click "OK" to apply to the test area. Now listen to the test - if you like it, press Ctrl+Z
to undo, Ctrl+A
to select All, and Ctrl+R
to repeat the last effect (but this time it is on everything). If you don't like keyboard shortcuts, these functions are also in the menus. If you don't like the processed test region, Undo and try different settings.
