Don't know how to compose a ringtone? Well, here's an easy instruction on how to compose your favorite tones.
Each key from 1 to 7 corresponds with a letter for musical notes:
[ 1 ] = c
[ 2 ] = d
[ 3 ] = e
[ 4 ] = f
[ 5 ] = g
[ 6 ] = a
[ 7 ] = b
To make a note sound shorter press [ 8 ] and [ 9 ] to make it sound longer. There are 6 possible tone duration, they are:
[ shortest ] 32 - 16 - 8 - 4 - 2 - 1 [ longest ]
To change octaves one higher, press [ * ] also [ + ]. If [ * ] is pressed in the 3rd octave, it changes to the 1st.
To add a pause between two notes, press [ 0 ]. It is also possible to change the pause's duration by using the [ 8 ] and [ 9 ] keys.
To change the note to a higher sound, or in musical terms, to make the note sound sharper, use the [ # ] also [ ^ ] keys. A #-symbol should appear in the note and your note will sound higher.
To make a tone sound longer with short pause, press the tone-key and hold it for a while until a [ . ] appears. For example, you want a "c" tone to sound longer, press [ 1 ] and hold until 4c1 turns to 4.c1.
Keypresses makes composing a little easier.
When composing using keypress, just key-in the numbers of the ringtone to your cellular phone and voila! your composing like a pro.
If you do not own a nokia cellphone that has a composer like 3210, 3310 or 9110, just copy the ringtone(s) you want and have it composed to a friend that has a composer then have him send it to you via sms. =)
If you've got an Ericsson phone and want some tone for it, go to this site [ http://scary-spice.jpl.nu/e2nok.html ]. It converts RTTTL format into Ericsson tones and vice versa.
