Do you have a love-hate relationship with your smartphone? You appreciate how it helps manage and organize many facets of your life, yet, a few features, like the subpar sounds, deemed ringtones, cause you to cringe? I, personally, find it somewhat perplexing how developers design apps that can tackle a world of tasks, but continue to fail at crafting slick audio files.

With names like Beep-Beep, Sparkle, and Orange, is it any wonder why most smartphone users find stock ringtones to be mediocre at best? Fortunately, there are simple programs for converting audio files to ringtones you will enjoy hearing.

You will find no scarcity in ringtone making apps, many of which can be complicated to use, are limited in file formats, or produce poor quality sound bites.

However, you won’t have to worry about any of these issues when using AVCWare Ringtone Maker.

Curious how you can use this app to create notable ringtones? Here’s the scoop.

How to use AVCWare Ringtone Maker

This free desktop tool converts many audio and video files to WAV, AMR, MP3, M4R, M4A, ringtone formats which are fully supported by most Android and iPhone models. Key features of AVCWare include drag and drop, fade-in or fade-out options, the ability to rename the ringtone and adjust the sound bite length, even after clipped.

Creating ringtones using AVCWare Ringtone Maker is quick and uncomplicated. After you download, install, and launch the program, select an audio or video file you would like to convert.

Enter the file either by browsing or dragging and dropping it into the button in the lower right corner. Choose the format you want to create. You don’t need to worry about the other settings, as AVCWare Ringtone Maker will automatically adjust them for you to help ensure your ringtone is of high-quality.

Click the ‘Play’ button to hear the music prior to creating your ringtone. Determine where in the composition you would like to create your ringtone clip.

Drag and drop the slider bar to your desired starting clip location. Repeat for where you want the sound clip to end.

To listen to your clipped area tap on the ‘Play clip’ button. Here you can edit or change your sound bite by moving the slider bar again to your new locations. In addition, try the fade-in or fade-out options which will provide smooth transitions during playback.

Although AVCWare Ringtone Maker provides defaults for output file name and folder, you have the option to rename the file and its destination folder.

To convert, click on the button in the lower righthand corner. You will quickly notice a progress bar indicating when your file is complete.

That’s it; you created a ringtone. Now, find your file, install it on your iPhone or Android, and you’ll never have to hear stock ringtones again. At least on your phone.
