How to make free ringtones that work with iTunes
A bit more complicated than the renaming option we had in the previous iTunes version, this one works just as well and doesn't leave you any "ghost" entires in your ringtone sync tab. Here's the URL:
How to use it (on PC, though MAC is prob the same):
1- Download AtomicParsley (linked in the URL)
2- Extract the zip to an easy to locate folder (C:/Atomic is what I'll use for this example)
3- Copy any .m4a file you'd like to use as a ringtone (if you have .mp3 convert it to AAC using iTunes) into the folder.
4- Open up Command Prompt, change directory to the atomic folder "cd CAtomic"
Your command prompt should now say: CAtomic>
5- Now just type the command shown in the URL: "AtomicParsley mmbop.m4a --stik value=14" where mmbop.m4a is the name of your ringtone file. Voila! You now have a name-temp-randomnumber file on the same folder, that's your ringtone file. Open it up in iTunes and it'll show up in your Ringtones tab. You can now edit the name there and it'll show up in your sync tab and most importantly, on your phone

It just got easier:
For the Mac, convert your mp3 files to AAC and then drag it to Ringtonator and voila! Ringtonator will turn any AAC file into an iTunes/iPhone ringtone, or vice versa. Download here: http://www.iphonexe.com/blog/?p=11
