Creating Ringtones in GarageBand '09

The problem with creating ringtones in iTunes is that you can convert only songs you purchased through iTunes into ringtones. If you just imported a song from an audio CD, and you try to use it as a ringtone, iTunes will display an error message saying that it can convert only purchased songs, indirectly scolding you for not doing your part to spend money at the iTunes Store.

If you use a Macintosh, however, you can create free ringtones with the GarageBand program. Use GarageBand to convert your song into a ringtone by doing this:

  1. Open GarageBand on your computer. The GarageBand opening screen appears, as shown in Figure 18-3.

    The GarageBand opening screen offers lots of options.
