Using Audacity, trim, join end-to-end (cut/paste), and/or play side-by-side audio files in order to create your very own ringtone. Ringtones should be a maximum or 40 seconds to conserve phone memory (besides, most cell phones don't ring longer than 30 seconds or so...the extra 10 seconds is just in case). Be creative, you might want to actually use it on your phone. Please properly cite all sources used -- Remember, fair use requires money to use as a defense.
