I can't find the 2 plugins separate to download
I have installed and re-installed Audacity 2.4.2 run the Nyquist installed but yet I can't see the 2 plugins under Effect :(

If you can't get the Nyquist installer to work, just put copies of the two ".ny" files attached (above)
into this (hidden) Windows folder, (the Audacity plug-ins folder) ...

Code: Select all

C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Roaming\audacity\Plug-Ins
Then they will appear in the plug-in manager, (you may have to restart Audacity).

Then enable them in the plug-in manager, then they will be available in the effects menu ...

thank you for your patience and kindness I was able to apply the effects now!
Would you recommend any other?
The volume maybe a bit high still?
How about the NORMALIZE effect?

RMS normalize, (yet another plugin :roll:), as a final step before you upload the podcast.
-18dB RMS is a typical value for speech,
but the platform you're uploading to may have their own standards for RMS loudness.
e.g. apple podcasts -15dB to -17db, others say -19dB.

RMS normalize to -18dB.gif
