According to a recent Austrian study, a specific alarm clock sound can reduce grogginess and give you more energy so that you can wake up faster. Besides, this study also lists some good wake-up tunes like “Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys and “Close to Me” by The Cure. But very soon, it throws up another view to deny the practice of applying certain sounds to all people with different personalities.
Given that it comes up with a more practical idea - make a custom alarm sound according to your taste. If you also want to improve your wake-up experience by adding a custom alarm sound, just follow our guide to do it.
If you want to make your own alarm sound on iPhone from a song, we recommend using this professional iPhone ringtone maker - EaseUS Ringtone Editor. Compared with iTunes, this program is easier to use and offers more functions that iTunes doesn't have. You can either upload an MP3 to this program or directly download one with its built-in audio downloader. After choosing the MP3 file, you can customize it by rearranging its length, adding effects to it, or adjusting its volume. Apart from the basics, this program also allows you to make a YouTube video to your ringtone if you wish to.
Step 1. Launch EaseUS Ringtone Editor on your computer. Next, import the song you want to turn into a ringtone by droping it into this program or browsing your computer to choose it.
Step 2. Then, you'll see the interface below. You can drag the slider to choose your favorite part of the song, and then click "Clip" to proceed. If you don't want to clip your song, you can directly leave this page by clicking "Skip without Clip."
Step 3. After choosing your favorite part, you can make the sound fade in by swiping left to right, or doing the opposite to fade out. If you want to adjust the volume, you can swipe up and down. Once everything gets done, click "Export."
Step 4. From the export options, you can choose to push the ringtone to your computer or your iPhone.
If you've ever made a song your ringtone on iPhone, you would be very familiar with the procedures to make your alarm sound from a voice recording. The only difference is that making a voice recording a ringtone requires you to export a piece of voice record to a computer first. Below are the detailed steps.
Step 1. Export your iPhone Voice Memos to your computer
Step 2. Change its extension to "m4r."
Note: If you can't see its extension, you can right-click this file > Choose "Open file location" > Click "View" > Check the box of "File name extension."
Step 3. Sync the m4r file to your iPhone
Step 4. Set the custom ringtone as your alarm sound on your iPhone
That's all about our guide on how to make your own alarm sound. As you can see, using EaseUS Ringtone Editor is the easiest way to make a song or voice record your alarm sound on iPhone. Apart from the above methods, you can also create alarm sounds with GarageBand for iPhone or directly purchase a ringtone from the iTunes library. But some obvious shortcomings exist in the two methods. The GarageBand requires a long and complex process, and the iTunes library requires you to spend some money. So, we don't recommend the two methods.
