How to customize ringtones on iPhone using MacBook

Go to iTunes

Right click on the song you want to use as you ringtone or text tone (if you already have the song)

Click on get info on iTunes

Select options

Click on the start and end button and input the song duration: usually I use Myxer(an app that is free on iPhone, with that you can determine the duration of the song, to not exceed 40 secs)

Use a maximum of 40 secs for the song duration

Go back to the song and right click

Scroll down to Create ACC version and click on it

Once created, you would hear a sound and see a duplicate of the song created

Go back to the created ACC song and right click again, scroll down to show in finder and click on it

A new windows pop up with the song selected

Rename the file extension

Change the file name from m4a to mvr

Sample file name:

Party & Bullshit (www.SongsLover.com) 1.mva

Change to Party & Bullshit (www.SongsLover.com) 1.m4r

Click ok, and chose the option to use m4r

Drag the song with file format mv4 to iTunes

And it should appear on your tones in iTunes

Then sync to your iPhone

Go to settings on your iPhone, click on sound, scroll down to ringtone or text tone and select your new tone

Exceptional cases:

There might be some cases whereby the song doesn’t appear on tones if so

Click on the songs on iTunes and delete the songs, please keep file don’t move to trash

Click on finder and locate the song you created with the file name MV4

Drag it to the iTunes

And it should appear on your tones in iTunes

Then sync to your iPhone

Go to settings on your iPhone, click on sound, scroll down to ringtone or text tone and select your new tone


Note: The audio song you are converting to a ringtone, must not be a track purchased from iTunes: Apple has strict restrictions that won’t able you to do that

It is quite a long process, but once your get use to it, it is not nothing compared to paying for every single ringtone on iTunes!
