Any Music-Porting Tool?

I know that the Title is Self-explanatory but can someone send me a reply for a Music porting-tool? I really want to port some music by myself... #tb{;)}
There's no singular tool for porting music, you need a variety of things to get started.

-PetiteMM (for converting midi files to MML format)
-Notepad (for editing your MML data)
-SPC700 (for listening to your port after inserting it into your ROM with AddmusicK)

Also, Notepad++ is recommended, as there are useful shortcuts for porting.

If you need any more help getting started, PM me or feel free to ask more questions here in the music forum.
You can also use MML Editor (along with the tools that Decoy Blimp provided), but this doesn't do everything for you, you still need some background of playing with the instruments to use and all. I had to learn the hard way. #tb{^V^}

And, I don't know if you know about MVS's Ultimate Music Tutorial already (it's quite outdated), but this is the most that we are able to use for now until someone is able to make an updated tutorial.

Out of curiosity, what does Notepad++ do that aids in porting? I've not used it much so I don't know much about it.

Make more of less, that way you won't make less of more!
Notepad++ can highlight pieces of text that are similar by selecting a string and right click > style token. Useful for looping.

It can correct all instances where PetiteMM exports ties as c8^c16 (for example) into c8^16, by setting the Replace function in "Regular Expression" mode and plugging this command in the Find field: \^[a-gA-G][\+-]? and this in the Replace With field: ^

It numbers each line the txt contains, and you can mark lines you may need to return to later.

There are more I'm sure I've also used extensively but I can't remember from the top of my head.
