From where can I download these plugins? I searched a lot but the links given in Audacity site are not working anymore for Mac. I am not sure if I am overlooking anything. Could someone help me with this please?

Thanks and Regards

The "swh-plugins" for Mac were hosted by Ardour, but they don't appear to be available any longer.
I'm not sure if they are available from anywhere else.
You could try asking on the Ardour forum if the swh plug-ins are still available for Mac

I'll ask around and see if I can find them anywhere. If you find them first, please let us know ;)

I think Ardour have only recently removed that download. We are trying to make the installer available on the site we recommend for LAME and FFmpeg downloads. We'll post here when that it is done.

Meantime I do have a zip (not an installer) here: .

To use it, extract the entire contents of the zip into the "Plugins" folder in the directory where Audacity resides - usually in your "Applications" folder.

Alternatively, in Finder use Go > Go to Folder and type in either of these addresses
Code: Select all

Then extract the zip into one of those folders. If the directory does not exist you can create it.
