Thanks!

It's two plug-ins, but yes, still working / valid.

Does this work with Mac? I'm getting an error message:No application available to open document using Chrome of Safari. Is there an app I need to use?

Thanks,
Bruce

Yes it works with Mac. You have to "install" the plug-ins. If you are using Audacity 2.3.2, the instructions for installing "Nyquist plug-ins" are here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/ins ... st_install

Do not try to "run" the files.
Delete any duplicates that you have downloaded. You should have one file called "PunchCopy.ny" and one file called "PunchPaste.ny".
These are "Nyquist plug-ins" for Audacity. They need to be installed and then enabled in Audacity.

The current version of Audacity is 2.3.3. If your version is an old version, update to 2.3.3 before installing these plug-ins.
Audacity 2.3.3 is available via the Audacity website: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/

Instructions for installing Nyquist plug-ins (Windows): https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/ins ... st_install

Hey, what would a good default fade time be to do comping with this? I might go ahead and edit it to just do comping (AKA change the defaults, name, and remove unneeded settings/code) :-) . I'd also like to see if I can punch in with the whole of the clip rather than have to select a region?

EDIT> It works better than I thought as-is - settings are permanent (I thought they were supposed to go away?). I'm using a 10ms fade time. It would still save me a click each time to have a "Punch Copy" that has no settings just like the "Punch Paste". I've used it to fix a couple bum notes/transitions in my bass lines which are generally repetitive so easy to copy a correct clip over the bad region. Also copied count-ins on a few songs from the scratch vocal to the final one (so I can transfer it back to my Zoom L-20 for adding more tracks).

This is so close to being a comping function in Audacity that I hope they add something very similar to the base code so not being able to comp goes away as an excuse to not use Audacity for simple projects. I'll be handing off the tracks to someone with a full DAW on this album mostly because the drummer insists he needs 8 tracks - I've been doing scratch mixdowns with just the overheads and kick and he hasn't noticed yet LOL. He can have his pissing contest with the DAW guy ;-) .
