I just got the new iPhone, and I thought I’d post this tutorial on how to make your own custom ringtone.
I used the free software called Techlogg.com ToneShop
I picked a song from my iTunes library, started up the software, then started filling in the fields.
The output format should be set to .m4r
I loaded my song from iTunes, set my Save directory to a directory called RingTones where I keep all my ringtones.
Ring tones need to be 30 sec or less. I listened to my song to decide where that 30 second clip should start. You can click Preview to listen to what you’ve cropped the sample to. Once you’re happy with the start and stop time, click Convert.
Find your new ring tone in your RingTones directory, and drag and drop it into the folder:
C:\Users\you\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Automatically Add to iTunes
Now, in iTunes, click on Tones, and you should see your new ring tone there!
Plug your iPhone into your computer and sync it, and now you can use your new ring tone on your iPhone 4S.
