Create your own ringtones using Ringtone Editor

Have you ever listened to a song and wished you could turn a specific part of it into a ringtone?

Sure you did, and in Vito Technology people understood that and decided to develop an application that does it perfectly.

Vito's RingtoneEditor is the quickest way to create your own ringtones. All you need to do is listen to the melody and choose the part of it you want to assign as a ringtone. User-friendly intuitive interface greatly simplifies the process. You can create ringtones from mp3 or wav music files with optimized sound quality.

Since RingtoneEditor is now a part of a special spring package deal called "Tuned-In" - I decided it's a good opportunity to check out the 3 applications included in the package.

The first one is RingtoneEditor:


RingtoneEditor is designed in a practical way. The first thing you do is select a file. The file you would like to pull a ringtone from.

The song I've selected is one of my favorites; it's called Lie lie lie by Serj Tankian (video attached below), and it starts with some piano sounds (9 seconds) followed by a great music part (30 seconds), and then the song itself which is good but doesn't fit as a ringtone.

All I wanted to do is pull those 30 seconds (second 10 to 40) and turn them into a ringtone.

(Sounds hard? Actually not at all!)

So as said, the first thing you do in the welcome screen is to select the song you wish to edit.

Then, the song starts to play, and all you need to do is click on the start button (which will start recording), and then, after recording enough portion of the song - click on the Finish button (after all, you do want to limit the size of the ringtone).

The bottom progress bar presents the portion of the song which will turned into your ringtone.

After recording is finished, there are a few steps that can be done using the Editor's main menu. You can play the track you recorded, edit it, save as a ringtone and also, assign it directly as a ringtone.

The Exact Edit option is huge; the application assumes you could have missed the exact start / finish points so it lets you fine tune them using a very simple and friendly user interface.

If you ever tried doing such kind of tuning with one of those PC based songs editors, you probably know it's not an easy task to do, and it usually involves accuracy and a lot of patience. 
RingtoneEditor makes it simple and easy thing to do which in my eyes, is the strongest features of the application. 

Another cool thing is that once assigned, the ringtone is automatically copied into the ringtones folder of Windows Mobile, which of course, is required, but it's nice that you don't have to do it manually later on.

Summary:

Vito's Ringtone Editor is simple to use and does exactly what it needs to do. It's working fast, and really "spoils" the user with a friendly user interface and a strong editing capabilities.

I recommend you jump over to Vito Technoligy's website and check out RingtoneEditor. There's also a 14-day trial version.

And now, since I've mentioned it - here's the song I turned into a ringtone in just 2-3 minutes:

Enjoy!
