There are too much confusion with default ringtones and default notification sounds being used. Just curious, what ringtone do you have on your phone? Do you know any designers who have created ringtones as a side project? Example: http://unton.es
No idea, my phone is on silent 100% of the time.
let me guess, you work in an open office
Or he wears an Apple Watch.
Lot's of situations where it's rude or embarassing to have your phone ring and ring and ring. I'm not going to consciously remember to turn it to silent all the time.
I thought for a second you might be this David Thorne. Do you get that a lot?
I wish. It comes up about once a year. I'd love to meet the OG.
You guessed it. No watch or open office at the moment, I just hate being constantly bothered by a phone. Life is distracting enough, I find the tiny blinking light is enough to notify me.
Those are awesome. This is not my actual ringtone, but I've always wanted it: 99%ringtone
hah! this is so good!
I'm always on vibration only mode and to be honest I kind of dislike ringtones in general. It just makes the world noisier.
50 Cent - Wanksta (monophonic)
Used to have this on my Nokia many moons ago...
Gang Starr - Full Clip
Polyrhythmic Ringer #1 by Lullatone (or some of their other ones) https://lullatone.bandcamp.com/album/alarms-ringers
Mine's the intro of this song Bring Me The Horizon - Throne. I'm kind of a music person so I like to use my favourite music as a ringtone. Well it rarely rings though…
This is mine too. High five!
What, seriously? I never thought I would find someone with similar music taste like mine chuckles High five!
I just launched ProTones, a 20 pack of unique alerts and tones for iPhone. It's a side project I've been working on as a way to get back in to audio equipment and recording.
Even though there's clearly tape hiss, I have a real soft spot for Torgo's Theme from "Manos: The Hands of Fate".
I'm on the 100% silent trip these days too, but as a backup I used to slice my own ringtones out of songs I liked. It was always tricky to get something that sounded appealing and not too strident, an instrumental segment of the song that wouldn't make me start to dislike hearing that song as much as I dislike receiving a phone call. My favorite ones were usually from songs by Metric or OMD, although I used the intro to Discovery's "Osaka Loop Line" for a pretty long time.
usually silent, but when its not its crazy frog
Beverley Hills Cop Theme:
4g2 8.#a2 16g2 16- 16g2 8c3 8g2 8f2 4g2 8.d3 16g2 16- 16g2 8#d3 8d3 8#a2 8g2 8d3 8g3 16g2 16f2 16- 16f2 8d2 8a2 2g2
Piano Black by the Seatbelts.
My texting tone is a modified riff from the Catch Me If You Can Soundtrack... you know the one... "doo doo doo doo snap"
At the moment, I'm using a ringtone from Cleartones Pure. Prior to that, I've always gone with either the default or whichever built-in option sounds the most like an actual phone ringing, except for a brief period in Uni where my ringtone was a recording of a friend shouting "RING RING!" over and over.
those cleartones are great! pulls out credit card
I have Frank Underwood's ringtone from House of Cards. It's fitting for the city I live in.
Same here! I also use the text tone. They're both from Blackberry.
Mine sounds like this:
Yep! I use Dan Eden's Kindlich from Untones. Although my phone is on silent (plus the blinking light) most of the time.
James Ferraro has a bunch of nice and weird ringtones, I switch between them, but my fav is probably Botox. They can be downloaded for free here.
The bass intro to Steven Wilson's Luminol
I can't say I remember the last time I heard my phone ring. I'm so used to the buzzing in my pocket or on my desk (loud enough).
It would be great if apps like Figure allowed me to export a track and make it a ringtone on my iPhone. I'd probably use it for a little while.
One thing that does screw with my brain is when I hear a default Apple ringtone that someone has set to their ringtone that I use for an alarm.
Nino Rota - Godfather ;)
Bringing back dat nostalgia
Mine is the default one and it strikes fear into my soul every time it rings. Although it's only ever my mum or a ppi scam.
My phone is always on silent/vibrate whether I'm out to dinner, hanging out with friends, at work...whatever. I just don't like ringtones – they're all pretty annoying.
The only time I have the volume up is when I am expecting an important call from someone.
Stardust - Music sounds better with you
I always use Glücklich from Untones (Thanks daneden). All the default ringtones on my HTC suck.
100% silent mode. But somewhere in there I have a piano version of Still alive from Portal
