Singer Song Writer (SSW), developed by Internet Co., Ltd., 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.
