4. On the left side of the iTunes window, double click to choose a file from the file lists of iTunes Library, Playlists or Genius or directly use the search bar to find the file you want to add.
Record an audio
Also, you can launch the recorder by clicking the “Recorder” button at the lower right corner or choosing “Audio Recording” of the “File” menu to record a sound with your microphone. When the recording is finished, the recorded audio will be automatically loaded and you’ll be forwarded to the main interface.
Step 2: Edit the ringtone

Trim the ringtone
2 ways are available to trim the desired part of ringtone off a whole audio or video.
1. Move the blue selection to locate your desired segment of the audio or video, and use your mouse to control the left and right adjustment handles to specify the start and end time. To adjust the display proportion of the selection in the whole audio/video duration, please use the zoom slider.
2. Adjust the “Start Time” and “End Time” spinners by either clicking on an up or down arrow or directly input the start and end time values recorded.
To verify whether the start and the end points are right, you can preview the segment with the preview button.
Most phones have the limitations on the sizes and lengths of ringtones:
e.g. iPhone (max 30 seconds);
Windows Phone (max 40 seconds and 1 MB);
Android phones (shorter than 30 seconds and smaller than 300 KB);
Blackberry (under 30 seconds).
Adjust output ringtone volumeIf you want to change the volume of the output ringtone, use the volume slider.
Set output ringtone formatUse the “Format” drop-down list to set different ringtone formats for different phones: .m4r (iPhone), .wma (for Windows Phone), .mp3 (for Blackberry, Samsung, Nokia, LG), .amr (for old Nokia), .ogg (for Android), for instance.
Bit rateThe number of bits that are conveyed or processed per unit of time. The higher the bit rate, the better the audio quality is, but the larger the file size is.
Sample rateThe number of samples of audio carried per second, measured in Hz or kHz (one kHz being 1 000 Hz). Lower sample rates have the benefit of smaller data size and easier storage and transport. Because of the Nyquist-Shannon theorem, sample rates higher than about 50 kHz to 60 kHz cannot supply more usable information for human listeners.
ChannelsYou can choose from audio channels like mono, stereo, and 5.1 surround. 5.1 surround is only available for .m4r and .m4a output and the original audio should be 5.1 surround sound.
Set Output Folder
To set the output folder, please first choose the “References” from the Aolor Ringtone Maker menu and then specify the output path under the default “General” tab of “Options” panel.
If you want the ringtone maker to open the output folder after the conversion, please check “Open Output Folder”.
Step 3: Convert to ringtone
Just click the “Convert” button, and you trimmed ringtone may be converted to the specified format automatically.
