Why can't I enable iZotope vinyl to Audacity 2.4.2 running on my Windows 10 laptop?"

Post by tprattyman » Wed Jan 13, 2021 8:08 pm

Downloaded iZotope Vinyl plug in for Audacity 2.4.2 running on my Windows 10 laptop. When I go to Effects>Add/Remove Plug-Ins, the iZotope files appear as "New", but after I click to enable them, then click OK, I receive the error message: Effect or Command at C:\Program Files(x86)\Audacity\plug-ins\Steinberg\VstPlugins\iZVinyl.dll failed to register: could not load the library.

Any known fixes for this?

It's because Audacity is a 32-bit app and the iZotope Vinyl plug-in is now 64-bit.

If you contact iZotope through their website they can still supply the old 32-bit version - they did this for another Forum poster recently.

And I know it works as I have it on my PC with Audacity - it's a fun plug-in
