Post recording dead mic noise

Noisegate.ny attached, thanks.
Noisegate.ny (740 Bytes)

Seems odd that when I search for Noisegate it only surfaces the one I put in the regular Audacity plugins folder but there is also a version in the /Users/dperkins/Library/Application Support/audacity/Plug-Ins/ folder as shown in the screenshot.

When you search how?

That file is trash (corrupt).

Do you know how to extract a ZIP file?

Interesting, I downloaded it from the wiki page linked to the Audacity page. I do know how to unzip a file.

Here’s the noise gate plug-in in a ZIP file. Hopefully being in a ZIP file will prevent macOS from mangling it.

Before you extract “Noisegate.ny” from this ZIP, I’d highly recommend that you delete all other copies of Noisegate.ny from your machine so at to avoid confusion.

Thanks, that seems to have done the trick…I’m seeing the Noise Gate effect in Audacity now. I appreciate the help and will try to use it on my next podcast episode!

Thanks again for everyone’s help…editing a podcast this morning and the noise gate has definitely saved me some time!
