Creating mobile phone ring tones

Hi All,

Just wanted to know if we can create ringtones for mobiles on fly. For eg: I would expose my mobile to a song and the tune will be generated automatically. I understand that, I need to write some software to generate the appropriate codes for the ring tone. If I'm not wrong, some mobiles do provide a recorder. Can that be used to get the song and then convert it to equivalent ring tone?

Thanking in anticipation.

You can create rintones from midi files and there is software to create them from scratch.

Enter ( creating ringtones ) in the google search engine and you will find links to this information.

You are right SinclairUser.

However, what I'm trying to think about is, this software will be a part of mobile phone itself. In other words, this software will be embedded into mobile and create ring tones for that mobile. Hence, it needs to have some hardware as well for recording tones.

Wanted to know the feasibility of doing this and is there any mobile which allows to record songs or sounds.

Nokia has or soon will have a phone that records any sound you like.

Page 9 item 2.6

"Nokia's first MMAPI-enabled MIDP phones don't support recording of either sound or video, so recording isn't yet covered in this example."

The operative word is YET
