How to transfer iPod/iPhone files(Windows/Mac)and make iPhone Ringt
As an iPhone user, have you imagined to make your own iPhone ringtone without paying Apple $1 for a song and then $1 extra to make it a 40 second iPhone ringtone? Okay, here I will share with you the following methods to create free ringtone by ourselves.
Method 1: DIY iPhone ringtones by using iTunes
As we know, iPhone ringtones are usually m4r tracks with 40 seconds or less in during. The following tutorial takes Windows PC for example, but it can also go the same way well for Mac users on Mac.
Step 1: Go to iTunes -â€œPreferencesï¿½ï¿½ , then set AAC as the import encoder and ensure the BitRate is 128kbps.
Step 2: Select the song or video you want to make into a ringtone in your library. Right click on the song and press â€œGet infoï¿½ï¿½ . Then tab the â€œOptionï¿½ï¿½ to set the duration to a maximum of 40 seconds.
Notice: The song and video must be unprotected m4p or m4v. Otherwise, you have to strip DRM license via DRM removal software.
Step 3: Right click on that song and click â€œCreate AAC versionï¿½ï¿½ to start conversion. And an AAC copy of that song trimmed to the duration which you previously set.
After that, right click on that track and select the â€œShow in Folderï¿½ï¿½ and drag it onto the desktop. (Remove that track from iTunes library: right click -] Delete). Then rename it from â€œTrack name .m4aï¿½ï¿½ to â€œTrack name.m4rï¿½ï¿½ .? Just click â€œUse.m4rï¿½ï¿½ .
Step 4: Double click on the new .m4r file to add into iTunes as a ringtone which can be synced to your iPhone. Then you can trash the .m4r file on your desktop.
