I'm trying to install one of these plugins.

The there is only a .txt and a .ny file.

The instructions ( ) mention putting it in a plugins folder, but I don't see said folder.

Where have you looked for the folder so far? – Simon Sheehan Sep 21 '11 at 23:25
Applications, and also inside the folder. instructions are not very specific. – cwd Sep 21 '11 at 23:28
up vote 1 down vote accepted /Applications/Audacity/Plug-ins/. The Audacity DMG comes with a folder called plug-ins as well. I guess you're meant to manually create /Applications/Audacity/ for the contents of the DMG.

As usual, audio units can be added to /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/ and VSTs to /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/.
