BEAST/BSE version 0.5.5 is available for download at:

ftp://beast.gtk.org/pub/beast/v0.5
or
http://beast.gtk.org/beast-ftp/v0.5

BEAST (the Bedevilled Audio SysTem) is a graphical front-end to
BSE (the Bedevilled Sound Engine), a library for music composition,
audio synthesis, MIDI processing and sample manipulation.
The project is hosted at:

http://beast.gtk.org

This new development series of BEAST comes with a lot of
the internals redone, many new GUI features and a sound
generation back-end separated from all GUI activities.

The most outstanding new features are the demo song, the effect and
instrument management abilities, the track editor which allowes
for easy selection of synthesizers or samples as track sources, loop
support in songs and unlimited Undo/Redo capabilities.

Note, if you encounter problems with .bse files from previous BEAST
versions, this may indicate bugs at the compatibility layer.
A bug report accompanied by the problematic file can be send to the
mailing list and is likely to get you a fixed file in return.
