My issue is that I downloaded Noise Gate and, although it is showing as “Enabled” on the list of plug-ins under the “Add / Remove Plug-ins…” section, it doesn’t show under “Effects” and thus seems unavailable to use.
disabling and re-enabling the plug-in
restarting my PC
running Audacity as admin
I should have specified before that I slowly and thoroughly “walked” down the list multiple times just to be sure that I didn’t simply miss the option. I just did so again several times and have been after each attempt to make it appear. I was so desperate I even slowly checked the list of “Tools”, “Analyze”, and “Generate”. I even kept looking for any indicator that I could scroll down further. There is no arrow or anything like that because I don’t have enough plugins for that. My grey bar is towards the bottom of my list.
Yes and No, to the second. I installed it manually but it was to the correct folder. Or at least I thought it was. Just tried installing using the installer of Audacity and it sent the plug-in to a different location. The result is exactly the same however. Shows as “Enabled” doesn’t show in the “Effects” menu.
This doesn’t appear to resolve the issue. Still not showing after trying these instructions multiple times. Removing and then re-installing the plugin then following these steps. Tried doing the same with another Nyquist effect called Pop Mute and I am having the same problem there as well.
I have two locations for plugins:
And I’ve tried one then the other and then tried both of them at the same time.
They continue to show as Enabled even after I close Audacity and restart it but do not show in my Effects menu.
I’m a little confused by the question. Is there another place where plug-ins can show as Enabled other than the one(s) I mentioned called “Plug-Ins Manager”? If there is a section called Plug-Ins Manager that isn’t “Add / Remove Plug-ins…”, I don’t see it.
Lol, I understand how unbelievable this all sounds but yes, the title of the topic actually is the case. I also believe I mentioned that this is true even if I close and restart Audacity. Meaning it shows as Enabled but doesn’t appear on the list. Close Audacity, restart Audacity, it still shows as Enabled, still doesn’t appear on the list.
Before I created the topic, I checked more times than I can count. Got some sleep, tried again the next day and so forth. I’ve been trying and Googling this for about 3 or 4 days before I created the topic.
