getting and installing audacity plugins

I just upgraded to the audacity portable 3.2.1 and I see there are now real-time effects. However, none are installed with the portable version, as far as I can tell.

Where can I find these realtime plugins (it would be nice to install a whole batch at once). In the 3.2 intro video, it shows many of these effect plugins in the effects panel on the side. Mine shows none, with a button to get effects.

The instructions on plugin install mentions various directories, (e.g. C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VSTPlugins) on the system drive where these can be located. However, that doesn't seem like it would apply to a portable install.

None by Default, Location

No realtime effects are included with Audacity when installed either locally or portably. You have to add them yourself.

You can save your VST plugins to the AudacityPortable\App\VSTPlugins64 directory. Or the AudacityPortable\App\VSTPlugins directory if running under 32-bit Windows.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
