You download the zip file for your platform (e.g. and extract the contents to the Albion directory, where you have ALBION.EXE etc. You run it via Albion.cmd or SR-Main.exe.

It should work straight out of the box, but I recommend editing Albion.cfg and setting Audio_MIDI_Subsystem=bassmidi, in addition to pointing Audio_SoundFont_Path to a soundfont of your choice (basically a soundfont is a sound “palette”, defining the actual sounds for MIDI instruments). I recommend using 8MBGM.SF2, so for example if you download that and place it in the DRIVERS directory (rename it to 8MBGM.SF2), you just set Audio_SoundFont_Path=DRIVERS\8MBGM.SF2 in the config to use it.
