The first time
After making sure Beatformer is installed correctly,
open a new instance of Ableton Live and click Options on the top toolbar menu
Click on Preferences...
Click the File Folder tab
Make sure the correct VST folder path is showing under VST Custom Folder,
by clicking the Browse button
Default VST folder location for 64-bit VST
Default VST folder location for 32-bit VST
c:\Program Files (x86)\Steinberg\VstPlugins\
If you have a custom folder that you use to place your VST's, you can enter it here.
Be aware though that the same folder should be entered during Beatformer's installation.
Use VST Plug-In Custom Folder should be On if you used the defaults during installation
Now click Rescan and close the Preferences window
In the Browser Sidebar
Click on Plug-ins
You should be able to see the accusonus folder, or depending on your custom configuration Beatformer might appear directly on the Plug-In list
Tip : If you have many plug-ins installed, take a moment to look carefully in your plug-in list before panicking !
You can drag & drop Beatformer in MIDI, Audio, Send, Return and Bus tracks.
Place it anywhere in your chain of effects, but expect different creative results depending on the position.
Note: Even though you can apply Beatformer in the Master channel, or even apply it twice, it is not the recommended use. We won't stop you though :)
