Why pay $15 for a piece of software that can turn your music into ringtones when you can achieve the same for free?
The first application you will need is MakeiPhoneRingtone from Rogue Amoeba. This is a very simple app that you just drag your AAC file onto, and it will convert it to the right format and import it in iTunes, directly into the Ringtones section.

If your original file is not in the AAC format, or you want to just use a portion of the file, you need some basic editing software too. The best free alternative is Audacity. If you want something that feels more Mac-like, give Fission ($32) (below) a try (from the same developer as MakeiPhoneRingtone).

And that’s all there is to it. Happy ringtone making!
