I think this version should be compatible with any official Audacity 3.x version.
  • With Audacity 3.0.0, the effect should do nothing (Audacity 3.0.0 had the old behaviour, so the plug-in does not need to do anything).
  • There wasn't a 3.0.1 release, so attempting to run on Audacity 3.0.1 is handled as an error.
  • For 3.0.2 or later, the plug-in will set the "macro-output" location to the same directory as the files are imported from.
  • For the current "Audacity 3.0.4 alpha" code, the plug-in fails due to a bug in that version. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
Let me know if you find any problems.

Here's a version that "may" work in Audacity-3.0.3-RC2.
It doesn't work in the latest code, but the bug that I referred to in my previous post is very recent, and I'm not sure if it affects RC2.

Thanks Steve for the quick response. I will give this a try today.

This version works for me in 3.0.2 and 3.0.3-RC2, 32 and 64bit.

Once again, Steve to the rescue. :D

Thanks for what you do.
