I'm an avid music maker, and I own a Mac. What kind of file would I need to make music for RPG Maker MV, and what applications could make them?

I want to start planning my music for my projects.

While I don't have a definite answer, I'd have to assume there's so reason we'd move away from .ogg and .mp3. And beside, file format is pretty easy to change!

:|  I didn't even think about changing the file extension... Well, that makes things easier.

Now to find a decent composing program...

The only problem is that this is the first time I'm breaking into PRG Maker, since it's now going on the Mac. I'm so pumped! I just have so much to learn...

Well, since there's an HTML5 export, we have to assume that formats playable on a web browser are supported. Most support at least Mp3 and OGG, but OGG was preferred because it allowed you to skip to a certain time and loop files easier.

Midi + soundfont will be nice if it is available.

If there is no support for them in MV, I am really sure it can be fixed as the engine (not the editor) is open source now.

i think this is due to multi-platform/browser. Not all platform can read midi file unlike .ogg and .m4a

also as i know .midi file doesn't contain any sound file so from computer to another computer depending on soundcard , all sound cannot be the same as first computer. i think this is why

That's true. But I would have assumed every modern device has a way to play MIDI. So MV should support that. Sound font support would be cool, though.

I hope there is MIDI support! I write my game music in MIDI and I use old tech (got a bunch of 80s and early 90s Casio Yamaha realistic and concertmate synths & keyboards over here...)

Yeah I think MIDI support would require coding a MIDI player in JS. Which is possible, but isn't exactly perfected technology.

javascript and media based technology is still new and thus players in javscript are not as advanced, how ever: html5

Bluh... glad this present heatwave is coming to a close...
Look what I found, it was my first ABS.

This project was never completed because I had lost the computer where it was stored.

Is there any way to get more than 8 enemies in a troop in RMMV or is that limit pretty much hardcoded into the engine?
