Aloha...I downloaded DeClicker.php (bc thats the way it was offered to me, even using "SAVE AS". Once it was on my mac, i right-clicked "Info" and Changed the extension from DeClicker.php to DeClicker.ny and tossed it in the Aud Plugins folder. Seems to be processing the file though its a 24-min file and has 30:49 to go. Doesnt resolve the problem but SEEMS to give access to the plugin.

You would probably have received help quicker if you posted on the Mac board (viewforum.php?f=47)

It's a well known issue that Macs do not like files to have unknown file extensions, and the ".NY" file extension of Nyquist plug-ins is not widely recognised (it is specific to Audacity). Macs will frequently add a known file extension in these cases, so we often hear of Mac users running into problems because macOS has changed the file extension from ".NY" to ".TXT".

In your case, the extension ".PHP" adds a new twist to the story, but basically the same issue of macOS trying too hard to help you.

I've just started using the de-clicker and it's cleaning up my voice recordings, but unfortunately it's also de-clicking the ends of words such as "said" and "it" etc. I don't really understand the settings - what settings (if any) would reduce this? Or, for example, is there some way to set the plugin so as not to de-click if the click is followed by a length of silence (i.e. at the end of sentences)?

@blinkyblinky: Can you post sample where it is de-clicking the ends of words, along with your plug-in settings and your audacity version/platform?

Hi tah, thanks for replying. I will do when I get time. Just to be clear, it's de-clicking the "duh" and "tuh" sounds at the ends of words like "said" and "pit", etc. It's not so noticeable in the middle of phrases, but very noticeable at the ends of phrases. It's clearly treating them as clicks, which they are really - but necessary clicks. I can't see how this could be avoided unless there could be some instruction in the program not to declick if the click is followed by a short silence. I read about the settings, but as I often find with many settings in plugins, the descriptions of the settings are rather brief and difficult to understand.
