Nyquist effects missing

Help for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X.

ImageThis forum is for Audacity 2.x.x on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.
Please state which version of macOS you are using,
and the exact three-section version number of Audacity from "Audacity menu > About Audacity".


Audacity 1.2.x and 1.3.x are obsolete and no longer supported. If you still have those versions, please upgrade at https://www.audacityteam.org/download/.
The old forums for those versions are now closed, but you can still read the archives of the 1.2.x and 1.3.x forums.

None of those are the correct place to put Nyquist plugins, except for /Applications/Audacity/Plug-ins, assuming that is what you meant to write.

It is best to write our paths fully and carefully, without abbreviations, to save confusion.

sorry correction to my spelling. They are located in applications/audacity/plug-ins. Then additionally I copied them to the user and system libs in audio/plugins. I thought I saw by default they are listed as applications/audacity/nyquist, when I unzipped the nightly build? I could swear they were outside the applications/audacity/plug-ins folder out of the zip file. In any case they are copied to the correct directories and everything else is just overkill and reaching to see why they arent working anymore. I did try the xattribute terminal solution proposed and after reboot, running add/remove effects and enabling them, they are still not showing up as enabled or listing in the effects menu at all. Running add/remove effects again shows them as still with "new" status.

We have indicated that Nyquist plugins are not to be installed in Library folders. Remove them from there.

Perhaps you should check that you ran the xattributes command correctly:
Code: Select all
xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Audacity/

Reboot after running the command.

Also it would probably be a good idea to quit Audacity, delete the file ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/pluginregistry.cfg then start over enabling the effects in Plug-in Manager.

You can also right-click or CTRL-click > Get Info over any plugin to see the permissions that different users have on the file.

I am also having trouble getting the nyquist effects to load. I upgraded to 2.1.2 (via .dmg); I also just upgraded my system to Sierra 10.12.1. I reinstalled audacity after updating the system. I've restarted my machine in between each system and program install

I have copied the nyquest effects files into the plug-ins directory; they do not appear in the effects dropdown, nor do they appear in the list under "add/remove plug-ins". the only nyquist-related entry in that list I see is an un-named, disabled line with the path nyquest prompt--it will not let me enable it. I have tried the terminal command given on page one of this thread, and also opening via Show Package Contents.

I am attaching the log file, second line seems ominous:
19:57:34: Audacity 2.1.2
19:57:34: Warning: Critical Nyquist files could not be found. Nyquist effects will not work.

It looks like you may be trying to run Audacity directly from the DMG. That won't work properly.
Ensure that you have fully installed Audacity following these instructions: http://www.audacityteam.org/download/mac/
When the installation is complete, eject the DMG "disk".

after installation as per the instructions, i ejected the DMG and start the app by double-clicking the "audacity.app" file. i've also opened via terminal as per other instructions (control-click on .app, select Show Package Contents, go to Contents, then MacOS, then double-click the Audacity executable to open in Terminal). same results via either method.

Are you still getting "Warning: Critical Nyquist files could not be found. Nyquist effects will not work." near the top of the log (for all methods of launching)?

yes. i installed FFMP and LAME, which cleared many of the other log errors I was getting earlier (see attached), but still have the Nyquist files not found error.

Make sure at Audacity > Preferences..., Effects section that the "Nyquist" box is checked (ticked).

Then open a terminal and type
Code: Select all
sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Audacity/

The Terminal will ask for the admin password. Type it in and hit ENTER on your keyboard. You won't see the password as you type it, for security reasons.

Then reboot and try again.

Gale -- yes, under Preferences/Effects the box for "Nyquist" is checked. And as previously stated, I have run the sudo command multiple times, and rebooted before and after. Still no luck.
