I have read the numerous posts about ACX check plug-in and how, after being downloaded, it won't appear in the audacity "add/remove plug ins" list.
I have followed every one of the threads. I have tried multiple solutions.
I'm currently on a MacBook Pro with OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 I have Audacity version 2.1.2
Upon trying to fix the problem myself, I noticed that when I was trying to locate my "plug-ins" folder in finder, I couldn't find any folders in Audacity. I then read in another thread about how you have to drag the entire audacity folder into applications to find the folders. I then added the ACX Check.ny file into my Plug-ins folder....still no luck.
I also see that all of the plug-ins listed in the "plug ins" folder are not under my "effects" menu in audacity. This seems to be all of the nyquist plug-ins. I also checked my preferences, and the nyquist box was checked, so that's not an issue either.
I also went into terminal and tried to allow the plug-ins because Gatekeeper won't allow them sometimes since they are from the internet. But no...under terminal, after I copied and pasted: sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Audacity/
Terminal says, that file was not found.
So, now I'm completely confused and don't know how to get ACX Check to work. I have tried every solution, and none of it seems to work. Any help??
