Make Custom iPhone Ringtones with Fission

Our Fission audio editor has revamped support for creating custom ringtones for use on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Boston, MA - Today, we’re happy to introduce an important update to Fission, our fast and lossless audio editor for MacOS. Fission 2.4 brings revamped support for creating custom ringtones for use on the iPhone, as well as the iPad and iPod Touch. 

Using custom tones, you can change phone's ringtone to anything you like. You can also assign specific songs or sounds to individuals, to know who's calling or texting without even looking at the phone. You can even pick music to wake up to, so you can rise and shine with your favorite song, or force yourself out of bed with music you despise.

Apple's newly-released iTunes 12.7 removed several features, including support for managing and syncing custom tones. This feature removal broke functionality in several current apps, including Apple's own GarageBand app, as well as older versions of Fission. Fortunately, we've been able to work around the issue. With Fission 2.4, users can once again save custom tones for use on iOS devices!

Save ringtones for iOS

Of course, Fission is great for all sorts of audio editing, not just ringtones. Use it to join files, crop and trim audio, or rapidly split up long files into individual songs. Fission is streamlined for fast editing, and it works without the quality loss other audio editors cause.

If you need to convert between audio formats, Fission can do that too. Rapidly export or batch convert files to the MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, FLAC, AIFF, and WAV formats.

With Fission, simple audio editing is a reality, and custom ringtones are a breeze.

Information & Links

Fission runs on Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) and higher, with a free fully-functional trial available for download. While in trial mode, the quality of saved files is intentionally degraded via a series of fades in the audio. The unrestricted full version can be purchased for just $29.
