A new release of abcsound is in the usual place: http://www.kneuro.net/ezscore. This version fixes repeats (again). It also implements default Q: and L: tags, and a simple default orchestra (a plucked instrument), so running
python abcsound.py someFile.abc > out.csd
should produce a playable out.csd file.
The default note-length tag L: was not being interpreted correctly; this is fixed (I think).
I increased the default tempo from 60 to 100. Better too fast than too slow, I always say.
Finally, I have officially released abcsound under the GPLv3.
I tested this version with a couple of existing tunes scored by others. There were some quirks (it looks like I'll have to support chord notation pretty soon), but basically life is good.
Next release should have in-line pfield editing.
