Are you looking for an easy way to make custom ringtones without Garageband? You've come to the right place! Custom ringtones can be a great way to personalize your device and make it stand out from everyone else's. It can also be a fun way to express your creativity. In this blog post, we'll discuss how to make custom ringtones without Garageband.

If you have an iPhone, making a custom ringtone is extremely simple. All you need to do is find the song that you want to use as your tone, screen record it while playing the song, and then convert the video file into an MP3 with MP3 Converter. Once it's converted, hit “Export” and select your MacBook Pro for AirDrop. Then open iMazing and connect your iPhone. Navigate to Ringtones and drag and drop the ringtone into the Ringtones Library. Finally, head over to Settings and select your newly-created ringtone!

For Android users, making a custom ringtone is also fairly easy. First off, select the file that you want to use as your tone. Once it's in the correct folder, go into Settings > Sound and vibration > Phone ringtone. Tap on the My Sounds option and then select the audio file that you want to set as your custom ringtone. Hit the plus (+) button and then tap Save.

It's also possible to make custom ringtones without using any at all! All you need is access to an audio editings program such as Audacity or Adobe Audition, or even just a basic text editor like Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on MacOSX. Simply open up the audio file that you want to use as a tone in one of those programs (or copy/paste it into Notepad) and then edit it so that only 10-15 seconds of it are left – this will be what plays when someone calls or texts you! Once that's done, save it in either MP3 or WAV format and copy/paste it into iTunes or another player app on your device so that it shows up in its own library section (usually labeled “Ringtones). Finally, head back over to Settings > Sounds & Vibrations > Phone Ringtone and select your newly-created tone!

As you can see, creating custom ringtones without Garageband isn't difficult at all – whether you have an iPhone or Android device! So go ahead – get creative with your devices today by making some unique tones for yourself!

Creating a Custom Ringtone Without GarageBand

Making a custom ringtone without GarageBand is actually quite simple. All you need is a compatible audio file, like an MP3 or AAC, and a ringtone editor app such as WALTR RPO. With this app, you can easily trim, edit and customize any song to make it your own unique ringtone.

First, open the WALTR RPO app on your computer or device and connect your iPhone via a USB cable or Wi-Fi. Then select the audio file you want to use as your ringtone. You can then use the in-app tools to trim the file down to your desired length and customize it with fade-in/out effects or other settings.

Once you're finished editing the file, save it and head to the Settings section of your device. Here you will find your newly-created custom ringtone listed in the Ringtones section of the Settings menu. You can then set this as your default ringtone and enjoy hearing your own customized tunes whenever someone calls!

Creating Custom Ringtones

To make custom ringtones for your Android device, you'll need to first select an audio file that you'd like to use. You can find free audio files online or create your own using audio editing software. Once you've found the file, move it to the phone's internal storage or SD card, depending on which option is available for your device. After the file is in the correct folder, go to Settings > Sound and vibration > Phone ringtone. Tap ‘My Sounds' and then select the audio file you'd like to set as your custom ringtone. Then hit the plus (+) button and tap Save. That's it! Your custom ringtone will now be available to choose from in your list of tones.

Saving an Audio File as a Ringtone on an iPhone

Saving an audio file as a ringtone on your iPhone requires a few steps, but it is relatively easy to do. First, you will need to launch the iTunes App on your Mac or Windows computer and add the MP3 file you want to use as a ringtone. Once the MP3 has been added to iTunes, you will need to trim the file down to 30 seconds or less. After that, convert the MP3 file into an M4R ringtone format by changing its extension from “.mp3” to “.m4r” and renaming the file accordingly.

Next, connect your iPhone to your computer and copy the trimmed M4R file over to your device. To verify that the ringtone was saved correctly, open up your iPhone's Settings app and navigate to Sounds > Ringtones where you should be able to find and select the newly created ringtone for incoming calls and notifications.

How to Put Custom Ringtones on an iPhone for Free

To put custom ringtones on your iPhone for free, you will need to use a third-party app. There are many free available in the App Store that allow you to customize and create your own ringtones. Once you have created your custom ringtone, you can then transfer it to your iPhone by syncing it with iTunes or using AirDrop. Once the tone is on your device, open the Settings app, tap Sounds (also called Sounds & Haptics), then Ringtone. Your custom tones will appear at the top of the list, above the default Ringtones. Just tap on one to make it your ringtone.


In conclusion, custom ringtones are a convenient and creative way to personalize your phone. Whether you choose to use an MP3 file or an audio file from a music service, there are a few steps involved in creating and using custom ringtones on both iOS and Android devices. The process is relatively simple, but it can be time-consuming if you choose to create your own audio file. With the right tools and knowledge, however, customizing your phone's ringtone with a personal touch is easy and fun.
