Noise Gate Plugin - not showing up in Effects Menu [SOLVED]

Hello

I've just downloaded the Noise Gate file for Mac using the ZIP folder because the Download link only gives a text file and not the .ny file. This is the link:

http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyqui ... Noise_Gate

However, once I am putting the Noise Gate plugin file into Audacity Plugins folder, while it does show in the Plugins Folder, when I open Audacity (after having closed it down and reopening). I cannot see Noisegate in the Effects menu.

When I click in Add / Remove Plugins, to enable NoiseGate, again, I cannot find Noise Gate in the Effects drop down menu.

Please can you advise?

Kind Regards
Smita

Nyquist plugins are plain text files with ",ny" file extension. If macOS adds a ".txt" file extension you can just rename it back to "whatever.ny"

Or what I perceive to be versions 3. Versions and Revisions are different in Nyquist.

Thank you Koz - I reinstalled the version you sent but I'm still not seeing Noisegate in my Effects dropdown menu to enable it ...

I'm trying to clean up the sound re: breathing and clicks, etc. on a podcast without any background music.

Is there another simple and easy way I can do this without using Silence under Generate dropdown menu?

It's an hour long podcast and I don't want to go through each and every sentence.

Hi there

I am having this problem too. I had a look at the online manual and it mentions going to Add / Remove Plugins to enable or disable installed plugins, but this menu item is completely missing under Effect, Generate and Analyze on my version of Audacity (2.1.0)

Thanks in advance for any assistance

That's because 2.2.0 did not have that feature.

It came in with 2.1.1 and was called "Manage" then

In 2.1.2 the nomenclature was changed to the "Add/Remove Plug-ins

All of those versions are way out of date and superseded (Unless you are visually impaired and need screen reader functionality - in which case 2.1.1 is the current version).

I suggest you download the latest Audacity version 2.2.0 from here: http://www.audacityteam.org/download/mac/

Thanks very much for your help. I'm not sure how I ended up with an old version of Audacity since I only installed it a few weeks ago! I must have clicked on the wrong link.

Thanks for your assistance :)
