Best afx tune for mobile phones?

Richard on 2001-03-31 21:54 [#00002201]

what is the most suitable afx tune that you could make into
a mobile phone ringing sound?


spektr from sweden on 2001-03-31 22:00 [#00002202]

ventolin would be nice :)


ChemX from Miami, Florida on 2001-03-31 22:48 [#00002204]

I think that On would sound cool, and easy to make as well


Phobiazero from Sweden on 2001-04-01 18:43 [#00002273]

Well, send me some then!


XePhA88 from San Jose, CA on 2001-04-02 01:30 [#00002301]

no no no... i really thought about this once. i think the
best one would be Flim. it goes:

D, F, A, A#, D, F, A, A#,

C, Eb, G, D, C Eb, G, D (both the D's are one octave up)

and then well... just listen to this song.. i don't feel
like writing out all the music. but it's nice and simple...


tekn010G from Australia on 2001-04-02 02:30 [#00002311]

Aigespolis, the tune at the start


XePhA88 from San Jose, CA on 2001-04-04 09:45 [#00002519]

good one tek... okay i got another one... but i have no idea
what the scale he uses is... its the part in point210561 off
ab3, where the hollow ambient tone which carries the tonic
note throughout most of the song (he also drops it down
sometimes for cadence) goes off on its own solo. it
sounds odd, but it goes together... i want to ask my music
friend to tell me the notes, but i never see her... too busy
playing violin. do you guys know what part i am talking


rob aka bucephalus from Australia on 2001-04-04 09:48 [#00002521]

what about yellow calx? or z twig?
or maybe 'to cure a weakling child'

i hate those bloody tuney ring things, they all sound
shite!. When you can actually record a track in to your
phone then it would be better, or you could record you self
saying "theres someone on your phone!" or just have a fart
as your ring, that would be amusing......or sectretly record
a fart as the ring for your girlfriends phone, that would be
even funnier.


Id Lab on 2001-04-04 20:52 [#00002569]

Is it really worth demeaning any tune you respect by playing
it on your phone? Until they fit those things with multiple
oscillators, resonant filters and effects, I'm not even
going to buy one.


Id Lab from a soapbox, somewhere on 2001-04-04 21:06 [#00002572]

Actually this is a serious point. Stockhausen wrote about it
as well. Everything we buy is designed to look good - phones
being a case in point. But the designers pay no attention to
designing the sound. He uses the example of a toilet - it's
made in nice shiny porcelain, in a range of colours, with
curvaceous curves, but you try buying one in B major. Crisp
packets: designed to look delicious, but they make an
annoying crackling sound. Power tools. Microwaves. Vacuum
cleaners. Cars are a slight exception, and I once saw a
kettle which played a chord when it boiled, but in general
designers just work visually. Phones are made to look really
cool now, but they still have less auditory sophistication
than a rubber band on a shoebox.


XePhA88 from San Jose, CA on 2001-04-04 21:18 [#00002575]

just wait for nanotechnology to get here in another 20-30
years.... then we won't have a damn thing to worry about.


tekn010G from Australia on 2001-04-04 22:27 [#00002580]

I still think aigeispolis could be done justice on a mobile


Aron? from Canada on 2001-04-04 22:54 [#00002588]

I think the coolest one for a mobile would be R2D2!

MaFx from swaziland on 2001-04-05 14:14 [#00002619]

XePhA88 - are they the actual chords for the song,
or notes


XePhA88 from San Jose, CA on 2001-04-05 22:48 [#00002665]

those are the notes. The song is in Bb Major. One of my
non-aphex twin friends told me that they think Flim is remix
of willy wonka song. is this true? i don't think so...

Id Lab: i agree with you about designers forgetting about
audio aesthetics, but this is kinda how i see it:

You have a cell phone. You could either have an Aphex Twin
tune on it, or you could NOT have an Aphex Twin tune on it.
I'd choose to have the aphex twin tune, regardless of the
shitty little speaker that plays it. hehe

I think that would just be great and splendid at the same

I hate song ring tones. I hate. Them. Hate. I would be so
embarrassed if a little song started playing every time I
got a call.

Does anyone know about these new higher quality rings, if
you can download songs to your phone for free?

Has anyone made any afx rings for the higher quality phones?

that's some quality gravediggin, virginpusher!

for my ringtone i recorded the resonance you get when you
aim two megaphones towards each other at close distance (few
centimeters) at full volume.
i call it "my broken mobilephone"-tone

then again i don't have a cell phone, nor would i want it to

Funny, now you can put whatever as your ringtone, people
seem not to bother and just leave it on default.

That said I think it's a great idea to have Aphex's "On" as
a ringtone, I am going to do that. For the longest time I've
had that AGT Rave Cru's remix of Freak. I feel I should have
just the classic "LFO" though, eh...

for years i have wanted out of space by prodigy, a
particular segment. the part right before the "boing" and
transition to rasta mode. the part where it's sort of a
quick one-finger synth xylofone. here:


then you hear... dunt, dunt. dunt dunt, dunt. these short
little... rave stabs? they're like orch hits, but short and
more rave-y. anyways, i want the phone's vibrator to pulse
with each of these hits.

obviously, the "boing" is where it goes to voicemail, and my
"text message received" noise would just be the "boing" as

i came up with this back in 2013 or something and i still
don't know how to set it up so the phone does pulses of
vibration in sync with the ringtone so i've never bothered.

anyone know if this is even possible?
