You can download Beatformer from this link.
Locate the .zip file you have just downloaded and extract it. You can use the default Windows extract feature or your favorite decompression utility.
After double-clicking the file, you will be greeted by the Windows User Account Control screen, unless you have disabled it.
Click Yes to continue!
Accept the agreement and click Next >
In this menu 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 Next >
In this screen, the default location for all VST plug-ins has already been entered for you automatically, but if you want to use a custom folder location you can click Browse... and enter your custom location.
Note: It is strongly recommended to leave this at the default Windows system location for plug-ins.
Ready to install!

As you may know Beatformer is a plug-in effect, 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
Note: Not every DAW is supported officially.
