How can I edit a ringtone that is too large?

Lew March 25, 2010

I recently downloaded some of the “9 ringtones that sound like real phones” and unfortunately the file I want to use is too large.
I have checked the WW and found “free” ringtone editors. However, at the end of the day they are not “free” or after editing they will not allow saving of the new file.
Any suggestions?

    Tried Myna? It's part of Aviary's online suite of tools.

    I did a tutorial on editing mp3 ringtones with Audacity here - //

    Audacity is a good program to use
    Direct Download Link:

    Also, make sure you install LAME MP3 encoder so you can save the edited file as .mp3

      Thanks for the information, I will give it a try, but instead of downloading LAME, can I save the edited ringtone into iTunes??

        Hi Lew,
        If iTunes accepts the WAV format, then you can (I don't use iTunes)

        Lame is just a .dll file that you just put in your audacity installation file (c:/program/audacity etc). Then when you go to save your audacity file as a mp3, it will prompt you to look for the lame dll file and your all done. I don't know why it isn't installed when you install Audacity though. But don't look for it when it is on your desktop, cos if you move it, you have to find it again.

    Use audacity which is a free audio editor.
