I am using the ringtone maker, and with the new itunes 11.1 i'm having such a hard time! and I dont see the ringtone section that use to be there when the old itune was there. so what do I do? how do I get this ringtone on my phone now? I dont want to have to go back to buying ringtones and then getting the part I dont want on the song. so I really need some help guys.

iTunes menu > View > Show Sidebar

This will show the sidebar like in version 10.x

Here's how to make ringtone using iTunes.

1. Select a title (.mp3 or .m4a) in your iTunes Library

2. Do File > Get Info on selected title (Windows do Edit > Get Info)

3. In the dialog choose Options tab

4. Set Start Time and End Time (no more than 35 secs otherwise won't work)

5. Close dialog.

6. Now control click the title (right click) and choose Create AAC Version

7. When it is done, drag the newly create title to the desktop.

8. Delete the newly create title in iTunes.

9. Rename the title on your desktop from ringtone.m4a to ringtone.m4r

10. Drag and drop it into iTunes


Now you have a ringtone.


Make sure it is selected in iTunes for syncing with your new iPhone.

How do I change the name before moving it to my desktop. because I dont see that option.

You change it on the desktop before you drop it back to iTunes.

Did you do Step 8 which is important before you re-import back to iTunes?

BTW, are you using Mac or PC?
