How to create a ringtone?

Are you ready to create your very own ringtone? Mad Ringtones makes it easy.
First, click the orange button shown here.
This will bring you to the editor - the heart of this website and the pride of our development team.

Once you're in the editor, you can choose one of three modes:
1.  Edit from YouTube. This mode lets you extract the soundtrack from a YouTube video and edit it to get the best and leave the rest. To use this mode, enter the video's web address in the field and click the "Load" button.
2.  Edit from the URL. This mode lets you edit the song in the URL for a specific mp3 file. Check out this video to see how it's done. Just enter the web address and click "Load" to get a waveform of the track.
3.  Edit from Local. This mode lets you edit an mp3 file that has been saved to your local drive. Click the "Browse" button to locate the file on your drive and begin creating a ringtone.

Once you've made your selection, the editor automatically layers the entire track on a single timeline.

At this point, the entire screen is overlaid on a waveform of the song. You can toggle to decide whether you want the ringtone to fade out, which can be helpful if your phone doesn't automatically do it for you. Choosing to have your ringtone fade out makes the sound gradually decrease in volume for the last few seconds until it becomes silent. A nice feature, isn't it?

Next you'll want to edit the soundtrack. This image will help you choose the best segments. If you need to merge a few segments to get what you're after, just hold down the Ctrl button on your keyboard. Gonna delete a segment? Hold Ctrl and click on the unwanted segment to drop it from the timeline.

Here you have the option to enter some information about the song you've used. Of course, you don't have to type anything at all here. It's up to you.

Ready to hear your new creation? Just click the "Play" button to hear how it sounds. If what you hear isn't quite the masterpiece you were hoping for, just keep editing the file. Once you have exactly what you need, click "Save" and you'll be redirected to a page where you can download your new ringtone to your mobile phone.

Here you'll find four simple options for downloading the file. One of the options will save it as a normal mp3 ringtone that is compatible on most major handsets. Another option lets you download your file as an .m4r ringtone that works on an iPhone.

Your final musical creation is added to a pool of other songs that Mad Ringtones users have created. When you're finished, you can choose to listen to other ringtones that have been created by other Mad Ringtones users based on music from the same artist. If you like them, you can download them to your phone, too. And other users can choose to download your creation in the same way.
