Description

Most of my students will know that I am currently working on my Advanced GarageBand for iPad course. Making a custom ringtone was originally going to be a section of that new course. However, the Advanced course has been taking more time to complete that I hoped, so I am offering this part of it completely free!

This course will walk you through two different ways to create an original custom ringtone of your own for any smart phone. When tested with students, most completed thier ringtone in 15 minutes or less but you may choose to spend a little more time getting sounds just right for you.

Each method demonstrates two different styles of ringtone step by step and guides you through the process of getting a ringtone ready for your phone. 

This course is optimised for GarageBand for iOS version 2.1 - however, Apple released version 2.2 of the App in January 2017. There is a section of Additional Information videos at the end of the course that cover the changes that were introduced with the new version. 

Note: Methods to transfer audio to phones will be shown but it is up to you to know how to assign a ringtone on your phone.

Who is the target audience?
  • You want to learn how to create a ringtone
  • You want to make more and better ringtones in the future
  • You want to share your custom ringtones
