It is very common for someone to use a default ringtone on their cell phone, such as the classic ringtone from the 60’s. We normally substitute it with a popular song at the moment, or one that we like, whether it is the entire thing, or just a part of it. But, sometimes it doesn’t turn out how we would like, which is why we are presenting you with this tutorial for Audacity so you can create personalized ringtones with specific parts of songs, so your Android will sound unique.

Import the MP3 song

The first thing you have to do is duplicate the MP3 file that you want to use as a ringtone so that the new one doesn’t overwrite the original song. Once this is done, importing the file to Audacity is simple: Just click File > Import > Audio and look for the folder where your song is located. When you find it, just select it, and it will open up in the program.

Make the ringtone

Once your audio file has been imported, you will see an audio wave playback in a blue hue on Audacity’s screen. The easiest way to select the part that you like from the song is to zoom (from the magnifying glass icon), and you will be able to see a lot better at which second your selection begins and ends. To cut your selection, click the selection tool  – situated just above the magnifying glass – and highlight the seconds by dragging the mouse (without letting go) over the that fragment of the song. If you do it right, the ringtone will be highlighted in dark grey.

Export the selection

Once you select the segment that will play when you get a call, you have to export the file so that it only contains that selection. It’s really easy – go to File > Export Selection, and save your track wherever you want.

Don’t forget to test that the format is in MP3 before you save it so you can play it without any problems on your phone.

Perfect the ringtone

As you will see, when playing your new ringtone, the sound starts abruptly with a loud blow, just as it was extracted from the original song. If you want your selection to be perfect, you can include a fade at the beginning and end of the track so that it begins playing progressively. To do so, you’ll just have to open your ringtone again in Audacity, and, once it is imported, highlight the first 2 seconds of the song with the selection tool. Once this is done, click on the Effects menu, and look for the Fade In option. You will see how the waves of the selected portion decrease in size. If you follow the same steps for the last portion of the song, you will have a clip that will play perfectly without a garish start.

Save your ringtone on your cell phone

Once you have the new ringtone on your hard drive, you have to copy it over to your Android phone by connecting the phone as a multimedia device to your computer. Once the computer recognizes your phone, all you have to do is go to Internal Storage > Ringtones and paste your song in the folder. Next, securely disconnect the phone from the USB, turn it off, and reboot it. You will see then be able to see and select your song as a ringtone.
