You can download Beatformer from this link.
Locate the .zip file you have just downloaded and extract it. You can use the default MacOS extract feature or your favorite decompression utility.
Double-click the .pkg file that appeared to start the installation process.
If MacOS asks if you are sure you want to open this file (downloaded from the internet), click Open to proceed with the installation.
Click Continue afterwards, and a roll-down window will appear
Click Agree to continue
In this screen you can select to install everything or to skip some items that you don't need. For example, if you don't have Pro Tools installed, it is safe to un-tick the AAX option.
When you are ready click Continue
Note: It is strongly recommended to leave this at the default MacOS system location for plug-ins and just click Install.
Enter your Mac password here and click Install Software
Click Close to exit
...Not quite there yet
As you may know Beatformer is an effect plug-in, so after installation there is no way to run it as a standalone app.
Instead you will need a hosting application that supports the VST or Audio Unit or AAX format in order to use Beatformer.
Some common DAW or NLE hosting applications that can run Beatformer:
- Ableton Live
- Logic Pro
- Presonus Studio One
- Cockos Reaper
- FL Studio
- Avid Pro Tools
- Propellerhead Reason
