Create a personalized ringtone for your mobile phone using a digital audio music workstation on your computer/laptop.

About this Class

You will download a free digital audio workstation (DAW) - music production software - to your laptop and be introduced to its main functions and instrument library. You will learn how to enter notes, beats, and effects and create multiple musical tracks. Using the DAW, you will then design and create an original piece for use as a ringtone and export the audio file to your cell phone!


This is a good project for beginners to music and computer music; some musical knowledge is helpful but not necessary.


  • Students will need a laptop, headphones, and a mobile phone (Android or iOS)
  • Students will need to download and install (free) DAW - PreSonus Studio One Prime (v6)
