Realtones, They’re New, They’re Hot and They’re Totally Mp3 Songs

October 19th, 2012 No comments

Since the first Nokia mobile cell phone and the Nokia tune the mobile phone industry has exploded, and also did the ringtones market. There didn’t only come more customers to buy the ringtones but there was a huge climb in the technology behind ringtones as well.

The first Nokia tune was a simple monophonic ringtones with only one beep sound. Soon after the Nokia tune there came a lot of other monophonic ringtones and even real songs that were composed to monophonic ringtones. But the technology did not stop. Because some years after the first Nokia tune the first polyphonic ringtones came out. Polyphonic ringtones became a big hype and every one who had a mobile cell phone wanted a new one that supported polyphonic ringtones. These polyphonic ringtones consist of more beeps than just one, so it sounds like a real song but without any singing. And the drums and the piano were very realistic. But after the polyphonic ringtones the technology behind ringtones slowed down a little bit. For a few years many companies were looking to find the best quality ringtone sound with the least file size. But after a while the mobile phone companies started to create and use bigger memory chips in their phones, and upgraded the quality of the sound. So after a while it became possible to have MP3 songs on your mobile phone and play them with good quality of sound. The first realtones are born…

But the first realtones weren’t actually the realtones we use to know. Because it was a little bit too risky to set up deals with record label companies to use their artists songs. Just because they didn’t know if anyone would be interested in the realtones. And the mobile phones that supported the realtones were very expensive and almost nobody had one. So the first realtones were actually called truetones. Truetones are mp3 sounds of real things. Like a mowing cat or the mowing of a cow. You even had a Yihaa! as a truetone or a big burp or a fart. But eventually more people bought a MP3 supported mobile phone as they became less expensive and those people actually bought those truetones. And eventually the market became bigger and bigger. The next thing after the truetones were the covertones. Covertones are the covers of real existing songs. But it was useless to make those because the productional costs were very high and you still had to pay a lot of money to the record label companies. So after the flop of covertones the ringtone providers switched to realtones. Real songs of real artists.

But why did it took so long before the realtones came? Well, that is really easy to answer: money. The realtone providers had and still have to make deals with record companies these deals go deep into the $100.000’s only for the deal! After the deal you still have to pay for every realtone you sell! So it is really expensive to legally offer those realtones. And you have to make deals with a lot of record label companies because there are a lot of artists at different companies. So there just was not a big market for the realtones at first and the ringtone companies had to wait until the big crowds got into the MP3 supported mobile phones.

There are some negative things about realtones, the quality of the sound on your phone is most of the time not as good as the real song so you might hear a different way of the song on your mobile phone than when you listen to the preview. Also, realtones are very expensive because of the high record deals. Realtones sometimes even cost two times as much as a polyphonic ringtone. And when you buy a realtone online you pay more for the realtone then when you buy the full song online!

But there are also some bright sides of realtones. Realtones are mp3 ringtones so they’re the newest thing and you can really show off when you have one! Also the realtones of the future are probably going to be a lot less expensive because the market gets bigger and bigger every day. Also the mobile phones of the future have better technology and better sound. There are even now mobile phones which have about 4 gigabytes of memory storage and it’s only going to be more in the future. So with realtones you can make turn your mobile phone into a media system.

So the realtones might be a little expensive right now, but in the future they’re going to be big, really big!

Different Ringtone Formats

June 20th, 2012 3 comments

Ringtones are musical sounds that a mobile phone or cell phone plays when an incoming call or text message is received to the handset. Because the popularity and technology advantage of mobile phones over basic landline telephones, ringtones can be downloaded to a handset and used to personalize a callers ringing tone. The fact that users can choose what ringtone there mobile phone rings too, is the biggest selling point and the main purpose of ringtones popularity.

There are various different formats of ringtone, and each format of ringtone is more suited to a range of different manufacturers and models of mobile phone. Many people who purchase a mobile phone think that they can receive any type of ringtone; this is not the case in many situations.

At the moment, there are currently 5 different format of ringtones available:

RTTTL, which is short for Ring Tones Text Transfer Language, is a simple text based format that you can use to make/create ringtones that can be uploaded or transferred onto your mobile phone via various mobile phone uploading techniques e.g. Infrared, SMS, and Bluetooth.

Monophonic ringtones are very basic ringtones, most commonly found on older mobile phones such as the Nokia 3210. Monophonic ringtones are only capable of making one sound at a time; hence monophonic. Each tone or sound is created at a different frequency creating a melodic, but simple sound. RTTTL is the basis behind monophonic ringtones.

Polyphonic Ringtones are compatible on mobile phones that can produce the playing of up to 16 separate tones simultaneously. Polyphonic ringtones are slightly more musical than monophonic ringtones, but there is still no real comparison to a real life song. Most modern mobile phones support polyphonic ringtones.

MP3 ringtones also know as real tones, real music tones and true tones are ringtones that are complete emulations of CD quality music. As the name suggest, mp3 ringtones are just MP3 music files that are assigned as ringtones. This allows the user to have perfectly quality sounds coming from there mobile phone, which for the first time has allowed mobile phones to produce real life sounds such as signing and voices. Many people now download full track albums to there mobile phone and simply use the files for recreation, such as using the mobile phone as an MP3 Player, then assign the MP3 file as a ringtone. This has seen a big surge in ringtone sales as it allows consumers to kill two birds with one stone.

With today’s technology increasing and the market for mobile phone content rapidly expanding, we have seen the creation of video ringtones. Video ringtones are simply small video clips with a MP3 file assigned to play in the background, so when you receive an incoming call to your mobile phone, the video and ringtone is played. Although video ringtones have been around for a while now, they have never really become main stream and could be a new market for many mobile ringtones websites.

Free Music Ringtone for Your Cell Phone

June 11th, 2012 5 comments

Music is the only “language” that unites people from all over the world. It doesn’t have any discrimination, or bias and everyone enjoys different kinds of music. Almost all the mobile producing companies have realized this fact and to keep the joy of music alive, they started plying these cellular phones with your favorite music in the form of ringtone. For all of you who don’t know what a ringtone is, it is the sound produced by the cellular phone at the time of an incoming call (and now even messages).

Out of passe sounds in mobile phones are polyphonic and monophonic sounds. They imitate the song in their own form of ringing style (either polyphonic or monophonic). Today, mobile phones avail to us even real music as ringtones. These type of music ringtones actually play the real song (in .wav, .wmv, .mp3, .mp4 formats). Apart from this, a recent development has taken place, called “caller tunes”. A caller tune is the actual song heard by the caller (the person who calls) when calling the recipient. This tune is usually the favorite song of the receiver.

Polyphonic and monophonic ringtones, though demode, are available on websites, which requires you to register and provide your mobile number (which is safe and not disclosed to anyone) to receive the desired ringtone via text message, after your confirmation through SMS. Monophonic and polyphonic ringtones can be composed by an individual person on his/her own. On the other hand, real music ringtones can be uploaded from your PC hard drive, transferred from one phone to another via bluetooth or downloaded through surfing the internet in your phone.

The Ultimate Way to Personalize your Cell Phone: Nametones

May 24th, 2012 No comments

Since the first Nokia tune, which is still the standard sound for Nokia phones, there has changed a lot. The original goal of ringtones was to personalize your mobile phone. So when it rings you will be able to know it is your phone that is ringing, and not someone else’s.

The first ringtones that personalized your phone were the monophonic ringtones, these ringtones are based on one single beep-like tone. And at the time they first came out they were the newest gadget to show-off with. These days they’re a bit boring. Because after the monophonic ringtones the polyphonic ringtones came. Polyphonic ringtones are ringtones that are based upon more beep-like tones. So it sounds almost like real music. Polyphonic ringtones are the standard nowadays, but realtones are coming in fast.

Realtones are ringtones that are not based on beepy sounds like the monophonic ringtones and the polyphonic ringtones. Realtones are actually the real sounds of artists. Realtones are 30 seconds during mp3 songs. Realtones are totally it these days! But they’re very expensive, because there must be made big contracts with music label companies. And companies who legally sell realtones have to pay a lot for every sold item. But witch realtones you can do a lot of things, they don’t necessary need to be real songs of real artists. You can also record a burping sound, or a chewing cow as a realtone! Those sounds are called truetones. But let’s get to the point. Let’s get to the ultimate way to personalize your mobile cell phone.

The ultimate way to personalize your mobile cell phone are nametones or naam ringtones. Nametones are actually realtones, or mp3 ringtones. Those nametones (or naam ringtones) are songs that are recorded with your name in it. So when your phone rings you don’t hear Madonna’s newest hit, no you hear your phone shouting at you to pick up your phone! So you always know when it is your phone when you hear a phone ringing. There are different sorts of nametones, you have nametones in the form of a song where someone is singing that you’re phone rings. Those nametones are in different sorts of genres like hardcore, hip hop, bubbling, pop and a lot more! Also there are celebrities telling you to pick up your phone, or just normal people with a funny voice and some swearing tell you to pick up your phone.

The only problem is that if someone else with the same name get’s called and that person has the same nametone like you, you both pick up your phone. But… at least you’ll have a good laugh!

Ringtones – What are the Differences Between Mp3, Mono and Poly?

February 14th, 2012 5 comments

The mobile market has been booming these past few years. All over the world, millions of people have embraced the mobile world into their life. Most of them are into it so much that they can not imagine going out of the house without their cell phones with them. Part of the fun of having a cell phone today is that you can upload all sorts of interesting mobile ringtones. You can use these cell phone ringtones for sounding when you have an inbound call, to let you know when you have an audio message, and also when you receive an instant message as well.

Many inexperienced Ringtone users may be overwhelmed by the technical jargon they encounter when trying to purchase or use a new Ringtone. Terms such as monophonic and polyphonic ringtones, MP3 ringtones or baud rate and the like are enough to shake many non-technophiles. But in general it’s not that hard and the different Ringtones can be broken down to three different kinds that are in operation now:

1. Polyphonic ring tones make use of multiple tones that are played simultaneously with the instrumental sounds created by guitars, drums, violins, pianos, cymbals and more. This creates a harmonious sound that you will never hear from a monotone. Polyphonic ringtones are able to much more accurately reproduce complex sounds than previous technologies, and, for this reason, phones that can handle polyphonic ringtones are much more popular thantheir monophonic rivals.

2. Real Music ringtones or MP3 Ringtones, are ringtones that came from “real” or actual songs. They use original pieces of music along with lyrics, exactly as the original recording. The format is usually MP3, WAV, WMA, etc. This feature and support for real music ringtones is being built into most new models of almost all mobile phone manufacturers. Real Music Ringtones are also called true tones, real tones, voice tones, full music or MP3 ringtones.

3. Monophonic is the simplest of ringtone technology that uses a MIDI format. This one note wonder changed ringtones and no more would you hear simple chirps and chimes, but rather, you could play a popular song. A single note playing a song resembles a monophonic ringtone sound. You can recognize your favorite song, but it sounds a little off, because there is not that much control with a single tone format.

Ringtones are available in various forms. One of the reasons why personalized ringtones are enjoying such an immense popularity all over the world is because of the ability to actually bring your personality to your phone. With personalized ringtones you can immediately show to other people what kind of person you are the moment they hear your ringtone. If you are the goofy type of person then you’d have one of those funny songs, a hilarious joke or a funny sound effect as your ring tone. If you are the romantic type then love songs would usually be your ringtone. The adventurous people may select rock or techno music as their ringtones. Of course, anime fans will definitely get anime theme songs as their ringtones. There are endless possibilities on how to customize your cell phone. You can download ringtones, compose them or even buy them on various websites. No matter what your personal taste could be, there is definitely already a ringtone for it.
