Nyquist Effects do not appear under the effects menu when I open Audacity in Mac OS X. Anybody know why? I can see that they exist in the plugin folder found in the audacity installation folder under applications, but I can’t find these effects in Audacity itself. Any help is much appreciated.
What version of Audacity and what version of OS X? How did you install Audacity?
Did you drag the entire Audacity folder from the DMG to the Applications folder?
Have you turned off Nyquist effects in Effects Preferences?
I installed Audacity 2.0.6 and I am using OS X 10.8.5. I did drag the whole folder into applications when I installed it.
First thing: check that Nyquist effects are enabled (as per the link in Bill’s post).
If that does not fix it:
I don’t use Macs, but I do know that Nyquist effects don’t work if Audacity is not installed correctly on a Mac.
I’d suggest trashing your current installation and reinstalling. Follow the instructions given here to the letter and it should work: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/installation-do-not-run-audacity-from-the-dmg/31711/1
