    MP3,s to SMAF Heres How To Get MP3 Ringtones on GX 30

    ok guy this 1 is simple follow these instruction to convert mp3's to wave then to SMAF files

    which you can then use a ringtones on the gx30. ( I have done this many times with 100% success ) you will need 2 bits of software an mp3 to wave converter get it from here

    http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm

    and a wave to SMAF file converter get it here.

    http://smaf-yamaha.com/tools/downloads.html#wscma2s

    and a card reader to transfer the files via SD card to your phones

    You will also need to rip the wave file I use the Sound Recorder provided with Windows.

    Step.1 Convert the mp3 into a wave file using dBpowerAMP use these setting

    16 Bit (CD)

    8000Hz

    2'Stereo' (CD)

    press convert

    ( I always create a new folder to save the converted files into that way they don't get mixed up with the originals)

    Step.2 Using the Sound Recorder provided with Windows rip the wave file to your favourite bit this must be under 11 seconds long ( it is important that the ripped wave file is 11 seconds or under other wise it will be to large for your ringtone and it will not be playable after it,s converted into SMAF file. at this stage I also increase the volume of the wave file you can do this through the effects menu ) rename and Save the ripped fill ( shorten the title to less than 26 letters this is very important )

    Step.3 Open the Yamaha Wave to SMAF converter drag the renamed wave file into the converter window and press OK ( check that when the file is converters it,s less than 50KB ).

    Step.4 On your SD card create a folder name it Sounds ( whilst its in the card reader ) drag the SMAF file into the Sounds folder and put your card back into your phone.

    Step.5 On your phone go to My Stuff scroll down to Sounds, then to Memory Card there your phone will find the SMAF files play the file press the Options button scroll to Move to Handset.

    Step.6 Go to Profiles on your phone press Options scroll to Personalise then Assign Ringtone then My Sounds and there will be the SMAF file you created press center button on your phone the file will play press Assign. ( The phone automatically loops the tune) Phewwwwwwww Job Done

    To Assign a tune to a contact follow these instructions:

    Step.1 Go to contacts on your phone then contact list find the contact you want to assign the tune too scroll down to the music symbol press Options then Edit, another window pops up called Ringtone make sure there's a dot in the On circle up comes another window press Assign Ringtone, up pop another window scroll to My Sounds find the tune you want press center button tune will play press Assign, then Ok, then Save.


    For every Situation there is a Solution

    And here,s how you can Assign your own tones to Multimedia/Text or WAP alerts.

    Follow the above instructions to create your SMAF tune and transfer it/them to your phone.

    On your phone press center button scroll to Profiles, up pops a window press Options, up pops another window, press Personalise. Scroll down to Message Alert, up pops another window, press center button on phone ( if you wish to set your tone in Multimedia or scroll to Text/WAP it,s the same way for all of them ) up pops another window, scroll to Sound, press center button, up pops another window scroll to My Sounds, up pops another window, scroll to the tone you want to use, press center button the tone will play press Assign, then press back and repeat above to Assign tone to Text/Wap.

    If anyone want to know how to Assign A Picture to a contact let me know and I will post the instructions.

    Ok guys here is a way around the slient call problem in the Slient Profiles Menu on your phone: Follow the instructions on how to convert your MP3,s/Wave file to SMAF. only this time when your ripping a tune ( anytune will do ) as long as it,s under 11 seconds in length. Durring ripping using the fore mention Sound Recorder that comes with windows, on the Effects menu scroll to Decrease Volume keep decreasing the wav untill it is slient, then save the wav ( i renamed mine Silent ) .

    Now follow steps 4 to 6 of my instrucions only this time in Profiles scroll down to Silent, press OPTIONS, then Personalise, up pops a window scroll down to Assign Ringtone, up pops antother window sroll to My Sounds, then find the file that you just made, press center button on your phone, then Asign, now scroll to VIBRATION and make sure Enable is selected.

    Now when your in a meeting or just dont want to answer your phone select the Silent Profile when someone rings you your phone just Vibrates and the call is automatic sent to your answering service ( if your have it dirveted to there of course if not a missed call appears you your screen )

    I did this over the weekend and it sounded really ××××××.
    I used 8KHz 16 bit as per the instructions.
    But it sounded more like it was recorded under water.

    Is it just the GX30's crappy speaker or did I make a meal of something?

    midi

    Is it possible using a similar method to reduce the size of a midi file? I have lots of midi files that wont play on the Gx30, and i'm thinking its because their to big ?
