I love to create ringtones for my iPhone and I love to do it for free if at all possible. Well, I am sure there are a lot of you that are the same way. I think I have got the solution for you. All you need is your favorite song, GarageBand, and about 5-10 mins. It is really simple, actually, let me show you.
The first thing you need to do is open up Garageband. When you open up Garageband you are going to want to choose the instrument option for your ringtone. Then you are going to want to click on the media icon on the bottom right corner so that you can select your song.
Next, you are going to want to choose the song that you want to use for your ringtone. Be mindful that because ringtones are generally about 40 seconds long, you will not be able to use the whole song. So you are going to have to figure out what part of the song that you want to use. If you look above the song, you will see the yellow bar. This will act as your guide for how long your ringtone can be. You can stretch it and shrink it for about 45 seconds, but keep in mind that your ringtone will not go that long. Then you have to pick which part of the song you want by moving that yellow bar to the section of the song that you want as your ringtone. You can press the play button to hear that specific section.
Once you are done figuring out the section you want for your ringtone, you now need to export it to iTunes. To do this, click on the “Share” tab, then you are going to want to click on “Send ringtone to iTunes”. Your ringtone will now be exported to iTunes and should open up in iTunes as well.
Now you have to sync your iPhone with iTunes so that you can get the ringtone onto your iPhone. Once you sync up your iPhone you are going to want to make sure that you select the ringtone so that it will sync.
Once your iPhone is synced, you now just need to set your ringtone on your phone so you can use it. Go to the Settings icon and then click on “Sounds”. After this you are going to want to click on “Ringtone” and then your ringtone that you made should be there. Select it and now this will become your new ringtone.
And there you have it. Once you get the hang of it, you will find that it doesn’t take you long to create a new ringtone. Hope you like it and have fun creating those new ringtones.
