Blackbird

Blackbird is a modern music editor for the Commodore 64. It was released at Datastorm 2017 (outside of the compos). The software has been designed to work well both on real hardware and in emulators, and it comes with a comprehensive User's Guide.

For some time, I've been making my C64 music using hacked-together cross-platform tools. Here the various features of those tools have been brought together into a polished native tracker. Thus, the included example songs were not made in Blackbird, but each was made in a conceptually similar tracker, and then converted into the new format.

Note: The User's Guide is also included in the zip-file.

Here are the CSDb pages for Blackbird 1.0 and Blackbird 1.1.

hey, im a C64 Fan/User since back in the days 1987. Always loved demos and rob hubbard´s music more than gaming. I always wanted to make my own music on the C64 but never could work out how DMC and co worked. I hope i get this one running a few sids of mine sooner or later. I def. like the design and love crows. Rar Rar rar ;) the sound from my trees outside ;) Got the feeling you like them too ;) so also your music is quite jazzy and complex so i guess youve packed that "all YOU (LFT) need" to do your stuff into blackbird. I wonder why there is no comment or vote yet on CSDB.dk but i hope there will be soon. I really hope to find some time to work it out. Anyway.. Thanks for all your efford on that PRG man.. Take care
