I am a guitar player, and I am completely computer ignorant. I have downloaded both audacity and hammerhead rhythm station, and use line 6 pod farm, with a toneport gx for guitar. I am trying to make hammerhead rhythm station a plugin on audacity, and have no clue what I am doing. please help if you can. my computer is a laptop hp pavilion g6 windows 8.

Mark, as far as I know Audacity is an audio editor, not a sequencer. The original Hammerhead software was standalone IIRC, not a VST plugin. Steps by xoxos is a port of Hammerhead to VST. It is a VST instrument, and I don't think Audacity supports VSTi's, only VST audio effects, like reverb or flanger, or PodFarm.
To use Steps you will need to get yourself a Sequencer DAW which supports VST instruments: drum machines, synths, sampled pianos, etc. I'd recommend looking at Cakewalk's Music Creator 6, it's HUGE value for money and has a mellow learning curve, with instructional videos readily available. A DAW like Reaper may have an unlimited demo version, but is extremely daunting for a beginner to get into.
