How to quickly create a ringtone in iTunes and GarageBand

Yes it is possible.

iPhone today is not uncommon. As soon as there is a familiar melody in the room where there are several people, all the owners of the smartphone from Apple grab for the pocket. "No, it was not mine" ...

Let's figure out how to make a unique ringtone from any song you like with the help of the Apple GarageBand application and the staff player iTunes without extra dancing.

Note: Note that you can only cut a track that does not have DRM protection installed. And this means that the songs purchased in the iTunes Store and the songs downloaded from Apple Music will not work. To install, you need a track that is not tied to Apple services.

The whole operation for creating a ringtone will take no more than 3-4 minutes, and the created audio clip will be available in the "native" settings of the iOS device without additional applications.

How to create a ringtone in iTunes


1. Open iTunes and find the MP3 song that you plan to install as a ringtone. Drag the song to your playlist. On the request associated with storing songs available in iCloud , select Delete and continue .

2. Listen to the song and select the exact location from which you plan to start sounding the future ringtone. Note the value in minutes and seconds.

Call the context menu of the track and tap on the Information item (as an option - follow the song and press CMD + I)

3. Click the Settings tab and specify the exact start and end time for the ringtone.

The exact timing should be calculated from the calculation: 4: 36,532, where 4 - the value of minutes, 36 - seconds. The value of milliseconds (numbers after the decimal point) can be neglected.

4. After specifying the start and end value, click OK. Call the context menu of the track (right click) and tap on Create a version in ACC format .

Click the Music tab In the song list, a duplicate of the track appears, cropped by the time values you specify.

5. Call the context menu of the song you just created (short version) and click Show Finder .

The file manager Finder opens with the exact directory of the song.

6. Call the context menu of the song (short version) and open the Properties item In the Name and extension line, change the value of m4a to m4r , and at the same time give a new name to the file. Under this name, the file will be available in the iPhone settings menu.

After making changes, press Enter and in the dialog that opens, select Use m4r . Move the renamed track to any other folder (you can on the Desktop ).

7. Return to iTunes and delete the short track from the list, confirming Delete song - Move . Moved and renamed to m4a format, move the song back to iTunes. Immediately after moving, the file disappears from the playlist.

8. In iTunes, open the Sounds tab by first enabling them on the panel (click on the three points - check the Sounds box ).

The created ringtone will be displayed in the Sounds category .

9. Connect iPhone using the USB cable and synchronize the Ringtones .

After the synchronization process ends, disconnect the iPhone. Open Settings - Sounds - Sounds and Vibrations . In the list you will find the newly created ringtone.
