Do blackers still need a program specifically designed for black midi creation?

Hey everyone. I'm hoping I'm posting in the right place. I discovered black midis a few days ago, and I can't get enough of them. I started delving into research on it, and it seems like the art form is still burgeoning, which is really exciting.

I'm a computer science major who read an article posted in 2013 where it was mentioned that black midi specific programs were needed. I would love to see what I can do towards that effort!

I've played the piano classically my entire life, and studied classical composition/instrumentation endlessly (though from what I've seen from you guys, my talent pales in comparison). Musical programming has been my major focus while in school. If you're interested, my compositions over the years are all on soundcloud.com/bustthenotes.

Anyway, when I discovered black midis I instantly saw the artistry involved. I feel like black midis are a groundbreaking, sophisticated new artform where visuals are as important as sound, and whose goal is to push technology as far as it can go. I'm hooked, and I want in.

We need both new Black MIDI players and Black MIDI Editors. xD

It's nice from you btw to offer your programming skills to help us! :D

Quite welcome KaleidonKep99 :). I'm looking to see if my computer is actually decent enough to do some black midi compositions. If it is... expect a ton of old school final fantasy remixes ha. And thanks Linux.gemini :).

I was looking into the some plugins and such you guys already have. It looked mostly closed source. Do you know if there are any active open source projects at the moment? I'm just trying to narrow in on where I can jump in programming wise.

I write my own programs that output black midi. A nd faster than I can listen to it.
