This course will walk you through two different ways to create an original custom ringtone of your own for any smart phone.
Each method demonstrates creation of a different style of ringtone - step by step - and guides you through the process of getting a ringtone ready for your phone. The methods shown do not involve sampling music.
When tested with students, most completed their ringtone in 15
minutes or less but you may choose to spend a little more time getting
sounds just right for you.
This course is optimised for GarageBand for iOS version 2.1 - however, Apple released version 2.2 of the App in January 2017. There is a section of Additional Information videos at the end of the course that cover the changes that were introduced with the new version. Features of version 2.3 (released November 2017) are not shown in the videos of this course.
Note: Methods to transfer audio to phones will be shown but it is up to you to know how to assign a ringtone on your phone.
Most of my students will know that I am currently working on my Advanced GarageBand for iPad course. Making a custom ringtone was originally going to be a section of that new course. However, the Advanced course has been taking more time to complete that I hoped, so I am offering this part of it completely free!
