Ringtones are fun things. In about 30 seconds they not only declare that you have a call to answer but also in a way declare what kind of person you are. That is why you have funny ringtones, serious ringtones, sad ringtones and all sorts of ringtones. Every phone comes with some of these built-in but there’s nothing like having exactly the sound you want. And it is quite easy to make your own ringtone for absolutely no cost. Here are a few easy ways to make them.
Free Ringtone Maker For Your Windows PC
AVCWare Ringtone Maker is a free desktop ringtone-making tool that anyone can use. It has a simple interface and comes with basic tools like choosing the format of the finished ringtone and some options for each format. It has precise controls that allow you to set up the start and end points right down to the milliseconds. You can also add custom fade in and fadeout and choose the volume of the ringtone. You can use any non-protected mp3 file on your hard drive to make your ringtone.
Free Ringtone Maker For Your Android Phone
Ringtone Architect is a simple little app with a great interface and easy controls. You choose a sound from within your phone’s music library. Then you use the onscreen controls to define which part of the track you want as your ringtone. The selection area gives you a large, close up view of the selected waveform, whilst a narrow strip on top of it gives you the full waveform overview of the track. You can also choose to have the sound fade in and out. Once you’re done, you can assign the new tone as your main ringtone or assign it to one of your contacts or you can set it up as a custom alarm or a notification sound — all from within the app.

Your ringtone can be of a maximum length of 40 seconds and you can choose to have a fade in/out on it.
In advanced mode, you can also control the speed and pitch of the ringtone. There are built-in presets that make it sound really fast or really slow, giving the ringtone hilarious effects. You can also record external sounds and use them as your ringtone.

It’s fast, free and simple.
