Plug-in Not Listed in Menu

Post by flood » Wed May 05, 2021 11:29 pm

Hi all, new to Audacity and ran across an easy problem!
I want to use the pseudo stereo plug-in. It just isn't listed in the effects (or other) menu after I enable it.

I have followed the install instructions and put the Pseudostereo.ny file in /usr/share/audacity/plug-ins folder
I have enabled it in the audacity application (Effect / Add remove plugin)

It doesn't show up under any menus. I am trying to add stereo effect to a mono recording.


My Info:
5.4.0-72-generic #80-Ubuntu
Audacity 2.3.3
Installed via apt-get

;nyquist plug-in
;version 3
;type process
;categories "http://lv2plug.in/ns/lv2core/#SpatialPlugin"
;name "Pseudo-Stereo..."

Make sure that you are looking in the right place. It should be in the "Effect" menu, down in the bottom sections below the dividing line.

Ah ha!!!

I didn't even bother to look in those sub menus below the dividing line. Thanks for your help!

Just for your information, there are a few options for how effects are listed: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/eff ... ences.html
(Most Audacity users, including myself, use the defaults)
