HOW TO – Stop paying for ring tones

Img413 108
Wired has a good article/how-to on making your own ring tones using our favorite audio tool, the open source Audacity.

You’ll need –

  • Cell phone with MP3 ring-tone support
  • CD or MP3 of the song
  • Audio-editing software that allows export to MP3. If you don’t already have this, Audacity is a good open-source program you can download for free, and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. You’ll also need the LAME library for Windows, Mac or Linux. (LAME is a free downloadable MP3 codec that enables Audacity to encode to MP3.)
  • About 20 minutes
