Why should you pay 3 to 4 bucks for a one ringtone? This is a tutorial about how to make one for free. For this tutorial you need audacity, lame, and razorlame (lame gui). You can get audacity and lame here: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows And razorlame here: http://rapidshare.com/files/24544393/razorlame115a.zip First open the mp3 you want (I'm using green days' basket case ^_^) Select end of the song, and delete it (shown below) (I left only 15sec but it could be more if you like) Then select about 2 last seconds of your mp3 and put a "fade out" -effect (shown below - optional) If there's too much silence in the start of the song, you should delete it too (shown below) Now export the final edition of your tone as wav. You could export it directly as mp3, but I didn't find out how to change the quality. That's why you'll have to get razorlame. In razorlame use the settings shown below for optimal filesize and decent quality Then add your exported wav and push the encode-button -> ready ringtone!
