How to install Nyquist noisegate on my macOS High Sierra 10.13.16

Hi! I use a mac but am a recent switcher from PC and struggling…I want to install the nyquist noise gate plug-in, but so far can only download it, and can’t get it into the plug-ins folder (as instructed by the wiki) - I mean this one ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/Plug-Ins.

I can find the plug-ins folder when I search via terminal, but I don’t know how to view/connect the two…

So far I have just the ‘noisegate.ny’ file in my downloads folder.

I should add that in my quest to do this, I have now downloaded the latest version of audacity 2.3.3

Could you give me the steps I need to take to install this fully?

thanks so much :slight_smile:

If you have Audacity 2.3.3, follow the instructions here:

Desktop > Go (top of the screen) > Go To Folder

Those are all the housekeeping files and folders.
