Software developer Pixel Research Labs announced Tuesday the release of Ringer 1.0, a new iPhone ringtone creation and editing tool for Mac OS X. The application allows users to choose any unprotected file from their iTunes library or any media file on their system (MP3, AAC, MOV, MP4, M4V formats are currently supported) and turn it into a custom ringtone.
The software also allows user to select the part of a song they wish to use and preview it exactly as it will sound on the iPhone. Once complete, press the "Create" button, and Ringer will make the ringtone and automatically import it into iTunes where it will be ready to sync to the iPhone.
Other features include:
- Control fade in and fade out.
- Change the gap between rings.
- Auto volume balance.
Ringer 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later to install and run and retails for $15.00. Until Ringer is licensed, an audio watermark will be added to the beginning of any ringtones created.
