As the use of mobile phones increase, making ringtones with an MP3 ringtone maker is now a popular activity for many. The earlier mobile phones used traditional ringtones that were preset in the device and simply consisted of repetitive rings. However, now ringtones have much more to offer as they are made of different songs and music presented in a blended fashion. All of this can be simply done with an MP3 ringtone maker.
History of the MP3 Ringtone Maker
As the name implies, an MP3 ringtone maker is a software that is used to make customised ringtones for mobile phones. The first mobile phone that had the customisable ringtone feature was developed by a Japanese company, DoCoMo, in 1996. The next phone that had this feature was released in the same year in September that allowed users, for the first time, to create melodies and use it as a ringtone. As this feature became popular, the first downloadable ringtone maker, known as ‘Harmonium’, was created by Vesa-Matti Pananen in the year 1997.
How does an MP3 Ringtone Maker work?
An MP3 ringtone maker works in three simple steps once it has been downloaded:
1. The user needs to select an MP3 song of his or her choice.
2. Thereafter, the starting and the end notes of the song can be set by selecting the favourite part of the song along the timeline by sliding the arrows.
3. Finally, the clipped audio file can be saved as a new file and later set as a ringtone directly in case of a smartphone. For other phones, the file needs to be exported from the PC to the mobile phone and then set as the ringtone.
As the number of mobile phone users increase, so does the need to make the phone more personalised in terms of theme, background, colour and most importantly, the ringtone. Therefore, MP3 ringtone makers are extremely popular, especially with those who like their ringtones reflect their tastes and fluctuating moods.
