I want to add binaural beats to my subliminal meditation. I watched a youtube video on how to do this but I still have a question.
In the video the lady says that when we are creating the binaural beat we have to click the audio option under tracks and add new but I dont have the audio option. What can I do? I need this to sound perfect. I’m using the el captain os
Which Audacity version was she using and which one are you using?
Did she end up with two new blue waves or only one when she did this? Mono Track will give you one, Stereo Track will give you two.
We have unending problems with YouTube videos because they’re Frozen In Time and nobody ever goes back to correct errors when the Audacity version and tools change. It’s the main reason Audacity doesn’t produce training videos.
Click on “Manage” at the top of the generate menu, then a list of plug-ins will appear.
Select the binaural* plugin and “enable” it, the click on “OK” [below “Enable”] , then binaural plugin will be added to the “Generate” menu.
Then “Add New” “Stereo Track” , then use the binaural generator.
[ * assuming you have downloaded the Binaural plugin, unzipped the “.ZIP” file, and put a copy of the “bitone.NY” file therein, into the Audacity plugins folder ]
Don’t open the bitone2.ny file with any application.
If the file I attached is not already in your Audacity plug-ins folder, select the file by clicking it once only, then right-click or CTRL-click and chose “Copy bitone2.ny”. Navigate into the plug-ins folder, delete the old bitone2.ny, then paste using right-click/CTRL-click or COMMAND + V.
Then locate the bitone2 file using Generate > Manage… in Audacity.
I moved this from an unrelated topic you jumped into.
The moral of the story is - don’t look at YouTube videos unless you accept they may have been written for some other version of Audacity than the one you are using. Also, most YouTube videos don’t tell you what version of Audacity they used.
You have to paste into the “plug-ins” folder that is in the folder you run Audacity 2.1.1 from.
You could try restarting Audacity, then open Effect > Manage… again. There is an intermittent bug that sometimes Audacity needs to restart before it sees new plugins added to the file system. I have seen it for all plugin types. I don’t know what the cause is - it could be a corrupted pluginregistry.cfg file.
