could anyone tell me why I\'ve made many ringtones but it\'s ring only 13-14 seconds not 30-40 seconds as a standard time to create a ringtone ? :(
It worked perfect for me and I have not used Garageband before! Brian\'s instructions are exactly how it looks like on both Itunes and Garageband.
this was so so SO helpful! thank you for being so clear & accurate. you made this a very easy process!
Thank you so much for this! After trying several other tutorials, this one helped actually succeed! Now to figure out which songs to use....
He\'s doing this on a Mac using OS X.
This is worthless. iTunes does not look like that and neither does the latest version of GarageBand and the directions leave a lot to be desired.
What is GarageBand????
