Customizing your device is something that can help you be different from everyone else around you. You are the one who listens to the ringtone and the notification sounds all the time, so it is best to choose something that makes you happy, and something that it is going to help you find your device with ease, without it disturbing you. In this article, we are going to give you some tips for creating custom ringtones for your smartphone.
1. Use a special software
The first thing you can do if you want to fully customize the notification sounds on your device is to try and create a melody on your own. You can do this easily, without needing any special skills by implementing the right type of third-party software.
The great thing about these specialized types of software is that you can just download and install them on any device of your choosing, play around with the beat, test different things out and see what comes out of it.
The issue that you may encounter with this is that you may not be able to create the melody that you want or you may not end up with the sound that you desire.
2. Download a song you like
If you’re not interested in doing everything from scratch, and if you want to save yourself a lot of time and trouble then the next best thing you can do is download a melody that you are interested in.
You can easily download any song from YouTube, TikTok, or any other platform that allows you to save the tunes on your device directly. The small problem that you may encounter here, is that you may not be legally allowed to save all the songs that you want or you may need to utilize a third-party application that is going to let you directly save the tune of your choosing.
3. Use the right website to download the ringtone
The easiest thing that you can do and the option that is going to let you customize not only the ringtone but also all the other sounds including notifications you use, is to just use a website to download and set up any song of you’re choosing.
On websites like ZoneRingtones.com, you can find a library that is filled with thousands of different songs, tunes, and sounds that you can access, listen to, and then download and set up completely for free.
The only thing that you need to be careful about when choosing this option is the website that you use. Always use recommended and trustworthy sites, that will not make you subscribe, pay for, or do anything else for them so that you can just access the tunes that you desire. Also, pay attention to sketchy sites that may end up putting malicious software on your device right after downloading the song.
4. Cut any parts of the song you like
We all know that when we download and use a song that we want as our main notification or ringtone sound, chances are, the song is going to start at the beginning, and every time your phone rings you’re just going to listen to the beginning of the song instead of the course or any other part of it that you prefer.
In this case, you may want to use software that will allow you to edit and cut every part of the song that you want or don’t want to include. You can use different editing apps that you can usually find for free online to select the part of the melody that you want and set it up as your main tone.
Remember that if you’re choosing this option you have to be extremely careful and it is better to use a free platform than to download and install software that may be malicious.
5. Don’t forget that your device can help you out as well
Finally, you need to remember that devices nowadays are not the same as they were a decade or two ago. Now, we use smart devices that are made to help us with everything no matter if our purpose is to make a call or to choose a part of a song that we want and set it as a notification sound.
Modern, smart devices can help you eliminate third-party software that may or may not be harmful to your unit. If you play around with your device a bit, you will see that when choosing the ringtone or the notification sounds, you can select the tone that you desire and you can also choose which part of the song or the tune should be added as the main tone.
This is especially true if you have chosen a melody that is longer than one minute and if you want to use maybe just half of that sound or 10 to 15 seconds. Depending on the make and model you have, you should be able to choose which segment of the tune you want to set as your customized ringtone and adjust it as you go.
Nevertheless, this does not mean that your make and model are always going to support this. If your device does not allow you to select the part of the melody that you want then you can just use third-party trusted software that is going to help you cut any parts of the song that you like and use it as your main sound.
As you can see, there are so many different ways to customize your smartphone when it comes to ringtones and other system sounds. Since most of these things are completely free for you to use, you can test all of them out to see which one works for you the best and make your decision on the spot. Our recommendation is to save yourself a lot of time and trouble and just use a website that is going to let you access a huge library and allow you to change your system sounds whenever you want and however often you desire. Be extremely careful when it comes to third-party apps and software that you need to download because they may be far less safe than you think they are.
