How to make ringtones on iTunes
1: Launch iTunes on your Mac or Windows Desktop of Laptop.
2: Choose or pick the song or audio file you want to use from your iTunes library.
3: Right click on the song and select “Get Info.”
In this window, select the Options tab and change the Stop and Start Time accordingly to your needs and duration of audio you want to save as a ringtone. The ringtone length cannot exceed 30 seconds.
If you want to start at the beginning of the song, set the start time to 0:00 and the end time to the number of seconds you want the ringtone to be.
If you want to start at the chorus of a song, play it first to determine what time the chorus starts and then use that number as the Start Time, and no more than 30 seconds after that as the Stop Time. For example, Start Time – 2:15, Stop Time – 2:45. When you have entered the Start and Stop Time, click OK.
4: Right click on the song or audio clip again and select “Create AAC version.”
iTunes will take the segment of audio file you have just selected from the song in Step 3 and use it to create a new file. A second song with the same name but new length should appear right next to the original in iTunes. If it doesn’t appear right next to the original, make sure you sort the song title column in iTunes by alphabetical order.
5: Right click on the new song and select “Show in Finder” or “Show in Windows Explorer” for Mac and Windows users respectively. The new song will show up in your Finder window or Explorer’s window as an .m4a file. Click on it to select it.
