  Tips and Tricks about Google Converting Ringtone Formats

Converting Ringtone Formats

Wave 2 MIDI:-

Wave files can be converted to MIDI but there are some limitations. Only one instrument can be selected in the MIDI file and WAV to MIDI files can not contain any voices as in the case of WAV to MMF.

For converting wave files to MMF you can use some tools like Akoff Composer, Mobile music polyphonic, Intelliscore polyphonic etc.

According to my experience converting general wave files into MIDI is useless because the detection is very bad. But if you want a song to be converted to ringtone you can do one thing. Buy a good Mic and record the main theme of the song in your voice. Then convert your voice into instrumental tone using these softwares.These software’s do well in converting human voices or piano tones into midi.

WAV/MP3 to Samsung MMF format (Used in Samsung C100 and other phones)

Converting wave files to MMF format is very difficult work. The sound quality of the wave get distorted and sound becomes very scratchy. Phones don’t support wav format as ringtones because wave files have very big size and phones only have limited memory.Nokia 7650 is among fewer phones which support Wav as ringtones.

Wav to MMF conversion can be done in following ways.

One thing you need to realize is that due the limited phone memory, you can only make little less than 20 seconds length of mp3 ringtone & you could store up to 3, maybe 4 converted mmf ringtones.

To do this, you need 2 software’s.

  1. Sound forge 5.0 or 6.0 (I got this at Kazaa. I hope you have fast internet connection to download b/c it's little big)
  2. yahama converter program; exact name of this file is WSC-MA2-SMAF-u.zip. (you can find this at yamaha website. Go to smaf) .Yamaha Software only supports 8000 bit Mono Wav files.

After you've got the software’s, open them.

Open the sound forge software.

  1. Go to File>Open. Select the mp3 or wav file you like to convert.
  2. Due to the size of the file, you need know that the maximum size to convert is 19~20 sec. The phone cannot contain the whole song. After it opens, you need to click & drag (like highlighting the sentence in word processor) the segment that you want to convert. Remember maximum you can convert is less than 19~20 second.
  3. Press play button to see if it plays only the dragged segment. If I were you, I would play with this software little bit. It’s not too difficult to use.
  4. After you have click & drag the segment, go to Edit> Copy.
  5. Then Go to File>New. It will open up a new file window. Then Go to Edit> paste.
  6. New Go to File>Properties. Then click on the Format tab.
  7. Leave everything as it is except for the Channels which switch it to Mono.
    -So Sample rate= 44,100/// Bit-depth= 16 bitt//// Channels = mono.
  8. After you click OK, it will ask you ¡Stereo to Mono . Click Mix Channels and click OK.
  9. Now go to Process>Resample .
  10. As it opens the Resample window, go to Preset> Resample to 8000 Hz with anti-alias filter. Leave everything as it is. Click OK.
  11. You have just created mp3 to wav file, but the sound quality has not been badly affected even though it's down to 8000 Hz and the file size has been tremendously decreased.
  12. Go to File> Save as and Save this wav file you have just created. Don't forget where you save this file.
  13. Now open the yamaha converter tool. It will say drag wav file into here. Find the wav file you have just created. Click and drag into the yamaha program. DON'T FORGET TO click 8 kh to 4 kh. This will definitely affect the sound quality of the file, but you have no choice to do this b/c phone can't be downloaded big size of file. Now, it will create the *.mmf file. (I think it also creates *.sfx , but you don't need this). All you have to do now is use GPRS program to download the file.

Several things to know. The max file size you can download to phone is 39~40 kb. I believe 20 seconds of mp3 file is about 39~40 kb. Also phone does have limited size of memory so you could only put few converted mmf file in your phone.

If you don’t have Sound Forge then you can do one thing. You can use windows sound reorder to do the task for you.

If you want to convert wav file to MMF, just open WAV file in windows Sound Recorder. If you need to convert MP3 then play MP3 file in player like winamp and run sound recorder on the other side. Then record the sound from MP3 and save it as wave file. Now you can convert this wav into MMF through following procedure.

Open WAV file in sound recorder.

Go to file/Properties/Convert Now and reduce the sound quality to 8000 bit Mono and click OK.Then save the wave file.

Then follow Step 13 written above to convert this wave file into MMF using yamaha converter.
