Chris's Dynamic Compression Not Longer Working

I have Windows 8.1 and Audacity 2.02. I just had a bunch of Windows updates install over the last week. I’ve been using the Nyquist plugin called Chris’s Dynamic Compressor forever. Suddenly, when I try to run it, nothing happens. It launches the controls for it and I adjust them and hit ok, then…nothing.

So, the larger question is: did the latest round of Windows updates break the Nyquist plugins somehow in Audacity?

Anyone else experience this?


No other reports of such to date, so not likely.

Do other Nyquist plug-ins work? (for example Adjustable Fade)?

Unless you have a reason to use 2.0.2, install the latest 2.0.6 from This will fix any installation reasons there may be for the problem.
