There seems to be a problem with the Snap package: https://github.com/diddlesnaps/audacity/issues/17

I'd suggest that you completely remove the Snap version of Audacity, then:
1.Delete the hidden folders:
~/.audacity-data
~/.audacity-files
(where "~/" means your home folder)

2. Install Audacity 2.4.2 from a Terminal window with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install audacity
Then look in the Effect menu to see what effects are installed. In particular, what effects are enabled in the section at the bottom of the Effect menu below "Wahwah".
