Since many fresh users of iPhone do not know how to make their own ringtones via iTunes, this post aims to solve this problem, if you are in need, please go along with it, if not, just skip it at will.
The iPhone Ringtone Maker was made with the ease-of-use in mind; instructions are provided on each step, guiding you through the process of making your own ringtones.
This method is available from firmware 1.12 to the latest firmware 3.12. Suggest you to rename the ringtones in iTunes after they are made well. So that it will never occur the problems that iPhone can not find ringtones while sync or iTunes prompts the ringtones can not be synchronized.
Okay, now let’s begin.
YouTube Video Converter is a powerful video downloader and converter made specifically for youtube.com to convert any YouTube videos.
Open iTunes, get into the Music list, and find the song you want to make as iPhone ringtone. For example: Symphony No. 9 (Scherzo), double-click it to play, and then you can see iTunes showing the playing time. Record the start time and end time of the climax part which will be made as ringtone, such as 0:10-0:40, do remember that the length of iPhone ringtone can not be more than 40 seconds.
Right-click on the song, select “Get Info” > “Options”. Insert start time and end time, then click “OK”. If you want to have a larger volume ringtone, you can adjust it here as well.
Back to the iTunes music list interface, right-click the song again, and select "Create AAC Version" in the menu, after that you will see there is another similar file in the list with shorter playing time. This is the original source of your ringtone.
Right-click on this file, and select “Show in Windows Explorer” in the menu, then change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r.
Double-click on the .m4r file, and then you will see it is added to Ringtones list.
The next is very important! Right-click on this file, click “Get Info”> “Info”, and then change the file name.
Well, finished. By the way, do remember go back to the music list to uncheck the start time and end time of your song, otherwise, only the selected part will be played each time you play the song.
I wish AVCHD Converter to convert mod files to an alternative format to AVI, MPG, WMV.
If you have higher expectation of making audio files in movies or videos to be as your iPhone ringtone, iTunes can not meet your requirements so far. In that case I recommend you to use Pavtube Ringtone Maker, I’ve been in use of it for sometime, and it works well to extract audio files from my video files, which enriched the ringtone source for my iPhone. Share it here, and hope it would be of some help for you as well.
