Mac OS X 10.10.5
Have followed steps from other threads but can’t seem to get the Noise Gate plug enabled.
Downloaded Noisegate.ny.txt → changed to Noisegate.ny (still opens as a regular text file however, not sure if that’s proper or not)
Copied file into ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/Plug-Ins
Relaunched Audacity, went to add/remove plugins under Effects. Noise Gate is not present.
Rebooted computer, Noise Gate still not present.
Copied Noisegate.ny into the Audacity plugin folder within the public library for the hell of it. Relaunched Audacity, plugin still not present.
Copied original file, Noisegate.ny.txt into both Library’s, relaunced Audacity, plugin is STILL not present.
Rebooted again, still nothing.
Been at this for over an hour, don’t know what step(s) I’m missing and am beyond frustrated. Hoping it’s just something simple I’ve overlooked.
