Audacity 2.0.5 - where did the BassBoost effect go?

I just updated to Audacity 2.0.5, and I’ve noticed that the BassBoost effect, which I sometimes used in previous versions of Audacity, is no longer available in the Effect menu, and it has been replaced by a new effect called Bass and Trebel. I like the old BassBoost effect because it allows for boosting specific frequencies, which the new Bass and Treble effect does not. Is there any way to get the old BassBoost effect back and still have the new Bass and Treble effect?

You can get a Nyquist version of Bass Boost here: .

Put the Bassboost.ny file in the Audacity “Plug-Ins” folder and restart Audacity. The plug-in will be underneath the divider in the Effect Menu.

Would you like to vote for Bass and Treble to have a frequency control? Would you find it too complex if it was necessary for best results to have separate controls for Bass Slope and Treble Slope? This is the “slope” of the filter.


Thank you, Gale. I’ll download the Nyquist version.

I wouldn’t have any problem with the Bass and Treble effect having frequency controls, as long as the controls work properly with screen readers.
