    Keep in mind that the iphone has problems with ringtones over a certain length. In my experience anything over 40 seconds won't work properly. So if something isn't working on your iphone then that's probably the reason.

    So far all the m4r tones I have downloaded were only 30 seconds. I registered also but you don't need to in order to get ringtones. FYI.

    The site seems to work pretty good. The search works best if you turn on the Native Audiko Search and don't use google. It keeps you on the Audiko site with direct download links and the play link to listen first.

    Cool. Maybe they knew about the 40 second thing so all the m4r files will be proper length. Solid site

    Been searching around for a little bit. They have a pretty awesome variety of music. Most of the metal bands I like have ringtones for almost every one of their songs. Thanks for the heads up on this one

    Arrow Making ringtones

    Just a side note, you can make your own ringtones using GarageBand and after you are done you just output it for the iPhone. This is an easily searchable process, and I've made about 20 of my own ringtones from various songs, etc.

    GarageBand does work great. I just don't have the Library or collection the web site has. It's very convenient to simply download it already done.

    I have spent way to much time on that site downloading ringtones.

    For those interested in using GarageBand here is a helpful Tudor

    Link


    PC Solution:

    First of all in iTunes, set the import settings to 'AAC Encoder' (Edit -> Preferences -> Import Settings)

    Now, right click the song you want as a ringtone in iTunes, Get info.

    In the Options tab, click the Start Time and the Stop Time checkboxes and set the times upto 30s apart (ringtones can be upto 30s long). Click OK

    Right click the song and do 'Create AAC Version'

    When the converting has finished, right click the new (<30s) song and 'Show in Windows Explorer'

    Rename the file's extension from .m4a to '.m4r'

    Drag the .m4r file into iTunes and the song should appear in the ringtones section and can be sync'd to the iPhone!

    Isn't GarageBand Mac only? That ruins it for a large chunk of the iphone userbase.

    Too bad there's no way of getting decent LOUD/LONGER Tones for Emails that come in and different tones to seperate SMS and Emails. I had to switch back from the 3GS to my Bold because I was missing too many work emails because I couldn't hear them.

    Has anyone see ESPN segment called "Come On Man". where they feature mishaps or mistakes from the games played.

    I would love to have that as a ring tone. Has anyone seen that tone anywhere?

    I use an app called "iRinger.exe". You dont have to worry about converting file types (it converts them all to .m4r for you), dragging files to your desktop, deleting the file from iTunes, adding back files, etc. With iRinger, you can edit the song to the length you want (iPhone limit is 0:30). If you pay for the full version, you will get extra editing tools such as reverb, delay, volume boost, etc. Upload the song to iTunes and sync your ringtone to your iPhone (I suggest manually syncing). It's as simple as that. The free version has an ad window attached. Best ringtone uploading tool. Enjoy.
