Just curious to hear how (or if) you guys get your ringtones.
I create them using garageband. It's the only reason that I leave it installed on my computer... plus they can go up to 40 seconds that way.
Garage Band is great if you have an iPhone. Pre iPhone I used this wonderful website called myxer.com. It's great, and free.
Wow... does it work well?
Sound Studio -> Crop -> Save as m4a -> rename to m4r -> import & sync via iTunes (if that doesnt work just SSH)
GarageBand is my choice for all my ringtones.....
+1. I don't know why anyone does it any other way. So easy.
No distructive crop, export, rename, import. SO EASY.
I use Garage Band as well, import, crop and export as ringtone. Could not be easier. I have bought a few .99 ones also.
I hit import select the part of my song i want and click export and it adds it to my ringtones file.Done in about 20 sec and its a free.Called iringer!!
that 17 step thing looks way to time consuming unless its easier then it looks. I'll have to try it I guess...
Trust me, it's really easy. Just try it. And it's free.
I use Tonzr.com and the built-in iTunes program. Tonzr.com is great because it's simple to make iPhone ringtones.
I'm so glad apple didn't cave to the record companies and left this blantant work around to get free ringtones.
i looked at the steps. so 40 sec max guess thats better than the 30 i use now. i'll try it tonight. thanks for the link!
I make my own using iTunes. It's pretty easy to me. I can make them ad long as I want and what parts I want and as man as I want...
Doesn't matter cus it can't ring for more than 30 seconds.
Actually, the max they specify is just what is recommended. I've heard of people doing 45. I don't think it matters how long (we had a discussion about this in a thread awhile ago). But, who would want one any longer, since you should've answered your phone by then.
Edit: HarrisonB, you're probably right about the 30, but for some reason people wanted to know if there was a max they could put on. Seems like it doesn't matter, but you're right that maybe only 30 secs can play anyway.
true didnt think of that. plus i never just sit and listen to the song while i wait to answer the phone... so anything over 30 would probably never be heard anyways.
I think the default set by the carrier is 20 seconds, but this can be increase to 30. The only reason to upload a longer track would be to use as an alarm. Someone feel free to correct me because I'm prolly wrong.
IMO... The work is done for you... the extention is what it should be and you can preview and listen to the parts you want to cut out and more.
I use www.phonezoo.com
accounts are free and after you set it up you download the ringtones as .m4r (i thinks thats it. What ever the itunes ringtone file is..) all you need to do is open it in tunes and it loads into your ringtone library. Works wonderfully for me.
I disagree. Audiko doesn't optimize the audio for a tiny speaker. At all. No high pass, no peak limiter options, nothing.
I use Audacity. Trim, fade ins and outs, high pass @ 100hz, peak limiter to loudness war status, export as m4a, rename to m4r, put in iTunes, done.
Sure, it takes more steps and is more complicated but the quality is well worth the effort.
