I will have a gallery up for you tonight m8

Retro Ringtones featuring Amiga Ringtones

I have a good feeling about this. and this would be a boon for so many peoples and is great for the community, sharing ringtones is a playground thing and one we should have in our playground HERE at the EAB!

Audacity wave 44.1kh, cut around 2 full beats, aprox 20 seconds.

some dynamic compression, if needed.
filter some bass
normalize the volume

64kbit mono mp3, lame usally under 160Kb, or the size limit for MMS.

I did some 48kbit tests but the freq cut off and warbling compression artifacts were a bit too much. Same thing for 96kbit stereo.

*edit* Found another one on the hard drive, bit overfiltered, but it's got that classic chip feel.

I'd say time isn't really relevant, I just cut when the beat finishes. This is usually around 20 seconds (very rough estimation). But anyone who requires more then 30 seconds to answer the phone will drive his coworkers insane.

A good ringtune is around 7 seconds ("normal" answering time), the best part of the song (no, you won't wait another 5 seconds for the verse) and easy to hear above the background noise (like chip tunes).

Hello there Boomtopper

okay, some have been making the ringtones by sampling the output from WinUAE, and then converting this to MP3 and editing it for length.

We try an keep the ringtone under 40seconds, unless there is a request now and then but generally 20-30 seconds is plenty for a ring tone.

However the method I use is a little different.

I use a program called MOD PLUG and it actualy plays the mods as protracker or octamed would on the amiga. from here i edit the sequence and if need be rewite and or re-sequence to obtain as much a flavour of the the music i can for 20-30 seconds. once I am happy that it makes not only sence but a good ring tone I then save it out as an MP3 56kbits (as the amiga audio is only half that, its a lot of zero padding but arguably sounds a litle better lol)

okay wich ever you decide, PM me and I will add you as a contributer and

To get the mods I download them from here :-
linkie 1.
http://www.mirsoft.info/gamemods-arc...c=&selection=1

you might want / need MODPLUG, so i have uploaded it to the retro-ringtones server

linkie 2.
http://www.guildserver.co.uk/project...1a494dad546951

If you want to know whats been done already have a look here, this shouldnt stop you from making your own version of course.

Linkie 3.
Retr0 ringtones: Featuring Amiga Ringtons

so go find yourself a track / game you like the music from and download it from lnkie 1. and then unpack and mod in linkie 2. then save as mp3 and upload to linkie 3.


ahhh the three linkie step program of retro-ness... i love it.

How i do it is i open the tune in renoise. www.renoise.com its a tracker and it supports old style mods but also supports vst plugins. While in renoise i can then export a section of it such as 4 bars.

I have just bought an mp3 telephone, and i have choosed Bubble Bobble for the call ringtone, starts with the ingame music, then a little effect, and the faster ingame music ( if someone wants the file... just ask ).

For now, no one has listened to it... I wonder what someone could think, but... who cares???

Wondering what should i choose for an sms? Ideas? Should be very very short and quite loud...
