Missing effects

A buddy of mine and I both have the 2.0.2 versions of Audacity installed on our computers. He was telling me that he has plate reverb and a few other effects that I don’t have in my copy. And what’s weird is we’re both running XP Pro 32 bit . . . any ideas how to get those missing effects onto my machine. Thanks in advance, Roger

Audacity does not ship with a “Plate Reverb” effect.
He must have installed some plug-in effects separately.

See here for more information about plug-ins: http://audacityteam.org/download/plugins

It’s this http://plugin.org.uk/ladspa-swh/docs/ladspa-swh.html#tth_sEc2.80 in the optional LADSPA plug-ins package http://audacity.googlecode.com/files/LADSPA_plugins-win-0.4.15.exe .

Restart Audacity after installing the plug-ins in the Audacity “Plug-Ins” folder.
