Problems getting a plugin to work.

Hi. I am having problems with the getting the Torpedo Wall of Sound plugin to work. I look at diagnostics slow long and it printed this out:

20:53:11: Audacity 3.1.3

Trouble is, I don’t know what any of this means of how to repair the problem. I downloaded the plugin and pasted it in the plugins folder, but still the same problem. It is a VST plugin.

Currently only VST (not VST3) plugins can work in Audacity.
Also 32-bit plugins will only work on 32-bit Audacity, similarly for 64-bit.

Also you need to have an account to activate this particular plugin …


So just pasting the dll will not be enough to have the effect work: you need to have an account & password.

I have an updated license and a password and my account is active. It worked right one time and I came back to it the next day and now it does not work.

Also I have the 64 bit version.
