Add Ringtone Before AND After
Authored by: rajington on Jun 30, '09 09:05:36PM
Call me gimmicky but I love that whole "fade out" "fade in" thing that the iPhone does when people call you. No, I didn't add fading to this, that's way beyond my capability but I did add the ability to add a song before AND after a spoken name. It's my first time using AppleScript so it's really bad code but it works.

It's up to you to create a file that fades out to put before it and another one that fades in to put after it. You can use the free Audacity or try out Amadeus 2 (my preferred editor)

I definitely would've been completely lost without Frederico's great code and comments, and of course because he made it completely "open source" so-to-speak. He easily could've gotten a couple of bucks off of this if he sold it (at least from me!). I apologize for the bad code but my skill isn't anywhere close to his.

Note that I also removed the "call from".

Add Ringtone Before AND After

Thanks for the kind words; I'm glad it was of use to you.

But I'm a bit confused; my script already offered the ability to place the ringtone either before, after, or none at all, to a spoken name (or any text you like via custom entry).

Was this not clear, or did you not get the option to choose position in the third dialog????

Add Ringtone Before AND After

Like you wrote yourself: it seems the original can add a ringtone EITHER before OR after the spoken text. The adjusted versions seems to allow for a ringtone BOTH before AND after the text?

However, I wonder how useful a ringtone BOTH before AND after the text is, given the fact that the sequence is repeated? :-)
