Post by Tim Jani » Tue, 24 Jun 2003 01:40:08



BEAST/BSE version 0.5.2 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 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 any GUI activities.

The most outstanding new features are the track editor which allowes
for easy selection of synthesizers or samples as track sources, loop
support and unlimited UnDo/ReDo capabilities.

Note, the .bse file format hasn't fully stabilized yet, so
incompatibilities with future versions may occur, though we're
making every possible attempt to maintain backwards compatibility.

Overview of Changes in BEAST/BSE 0.5.2:

* Implemented unlimited Undo/Redo facilities
* Tracks now support waves directly as Synth input
* Added wave/synth selection dialog for tracks
* Major improvements to file/wave selection dialogs
* Added ability to monitor PCM output to WAVE files
