FL Studio

FL Studio is a music sequencer program developed by Image-Line. Although its main use is to create music (mainly EDM), it is used by several blackers to create Black MIDIs. You can visit the download site here. FL Studio supports MIDI Input and Output like any other MIDI editor but also allows VST and Soundfonts as output. Because the program is made more for the creation of music and not MIDI specifically it is not optimized for MIDI editing but nonetheless still does a well job.

Version 12.4.1 is the last version available at this time.

is a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) used for composition and music production. In Black MIDIs, it serves as a MIDI player to display sheet music. This program is the reason how the Black MIDI Team got its name since the sheet music is solid black when a black MIDI is played.

Some functions of the program include MIDI and sheet music production, music recognition, and audio rendering. The program can also be integrated with VOCALOID, a singing voice synthesizer application software.

Singer Song Writer 10 (Standard and Professional) is the last release for the SSW series. It is now replaced by ABILITY, SSW 10's successor.
