Ring Tone Becoming a Little Old? Your Options Will Soon Be Wider
By Ian Austen
The novelty of musical mobile
phone ring tones can expire long before the subscriptions that provide them. As
an alternative, Magix, a maker of sound and video editing software, is proposing
a do-it-yourself approach, using music you have on hand.
The Magix Ringtone Maker can take virtually any audio clip - from music CD's,
DVD soundtracks and recordings in MP3 and other digital formats - and convert it
into a ring tone.
"You don't have to choose from what's available through subscription services,"
John Auvil, a spokesman for Magix, said. "With this, any sound is available."
The $20 program, which will be available by the end of the month from retailers
and at www.ringtone-maker.com, not only helps pare songs to a suitable length
and sound level for phone use, it also lets users remix existing ring tones and
add audio effects like reverb or echo. It then uploads the melodies in a variety
of ways, including Bluetooth wireless and infrared transmission. The program
supports most major ring tone file formats.
Mr. Auvil said the most time-consuming part of the process was also the most
subjective: deciding which sounds make an attention-getting ring. Ian Austen
