i have attempted to d/l both acon and black cat[both 32 bit]
acon only installs setup wizard…cannot proceed; when i try to ‘‘open’’ it goes back to setup wizard install.
black cat installs but when opened shows 3 options 1. manual 2. web page 3. uninstall
i have tried in google chrome and firefox and also 64 bit versions.
thanks for your description of my song record problem…v good
from what i have learned from you tube the duplicate copy does not work because it is an exact copy ; whereas the recorded copy is not true and therefore the result produces the effect of two vocalists singing the same song.
the duplicated version is exactly the same as the original …only one vocalist.
is it possible to make a recording in audacity?? maybe it is incapable of this.
i acknowledge your comment that this method of producing a chorus effect is the hard way to go about this.
After you’ve created 2 duplicate tracks, you can time-shift them, say +/- 10 milliseconds,
pan one full Left , pan the other full right , then you get a chorus-effect if you mix them with the original …
The chorus plugins can produce richer chorus-effect than doing it manually …
i have been trying to install the chorus vst plugins recommended.
both are in my vst plugin folder.
i have moved the multi voice chorus to audacity add/remove but it will not remain enabled,it goes back to disabled after clicking ok.
i cannot move the bluecat chorus to audacity…it does not show in add/remove box.
If you delete “pluginregistry.cfg” the data in it will be lost : no way back from that, unless you have a copy of it.
If you rename “pluginregistry.cfg” to say “pluginregistry-old.cfg” Audacity will generate a new “pluginregistry.cfg” when it is restarted.
If in the future you need to reinstate (or inspect*) the old cfg file you have a copy called “pluginregistry-old.cfg”
[ * it’s a list to remind you of all the of all the plugins you’ve installed ]
It’s heresy to mention it here, but there are other free audio editors which are more user-friendly than Audacity,
e.g. OCENaudio which has built-in chorus effect & can accept VST plugins.
Unlike Audacity, OCENaudio doesn’t do multi-track editing : Just one stereo-track.
with regard to the info you passed on to me in your last post…it was good info;thanks.
i would like to add some things i have learned about loading effects plugins into audacity.
i have d/loaded two effects …chorus and vocal harmoniser into my downloads folder[ they appeared as zip files].
unzipped them with windows utility.
opened them [ they showed dll at the end which i am told is good]
r/c c: disk > program filesx86 > audacity > plugins.
from the folder containing the effects files i grabbed them and inserted into ‘plugins’
in audacity i opened add/remove manager and the effects were in the ‘new’ box waiting to be enabled.
the chorus is great but i am having no luck with the harmoniser.
it is called ‘pitchproof’ and i have tried varied and numerous settings but i cannot get it right… am wondering if this was designed for guitar not vocal[ it was recommended though]
