Create your own iPhone ring tones

I’ve had my iPhone for a week (loving it!) and of course I want to make custom ring tones for some of my contacts. I figured out how it worked from posts like create-free-iphone-ringtones-using-itunes-in-windows but I developed my own workflow:

1. Find a source file

2. Create the 15 – 30 sec tone in MP3 format

Make iPhone ringtone with Audacity

3. Export to MP3

4. Convert with ffmpeg to MPEG4 ringtone

5. Open file with iTunes

The lazy way:

let’s make a batch file that will automatically convert the first 30 seconds of any MP3 file into an iPhone ringtone:
SET INPUT=%1<br /> SET NAME=%INPUT:.mp3=%<br /> SET OUTPUT=%NAME%.m4r<br /> echo CONVERT %INPUT% to %OUTPUT% ...<br /> ffmpeg.exe -i %INPUT% -t 30 -ac 1 -ab 128000 -f mp4 -acodec libfaac -genre Ringtone -y %OUTPUT%
