[prMac.com] Strasbourg, France - The Northern Countries Appeal today is proud to announce the release of Kaleido Ringtone 1.0 for iPhone. Based on the idea that even the sound of our personal communication devices should be personal, Kaleido Ringtone aims at giving every iPhone a unique ringtone with a simple click.
Arguably every mobile phone user has experienced the same phenomenon: in a public place, he hears "his" ringtone, reaches for his iPhone... and finds out that it was quietly sleeping. As all mobiles in the world share the same handful of ringtones, it was hard to guess that the sound came from another device around!
While it is possible for every user to customise his ringtone, the process take some time and skills, and the result is never really convincing: to be effective, a ringtone should sound like... a ringtone, and not like an excerpt of a song. This is where Kaleido Ringtone can help.
This new iOS app generates unique ringtones algorithmically: harmonies, voicings, arpeggios, orchestration... every musical aspect has been carefully considered. A side effect of the algorithmic approach is the nearly infinite quantity of possible ringtones: even listening to a tone per second, it would take 7,000,000 billions years to complete the collection! The old MIDI technology, coupled with beautiful sounds, provides the right tools to transform this infinite abstractness into real and resounding .m4r files.
To the user he process is extremely simple: he sets six preferences (the timber of the first and second voice, the duration, the speed, the density aka the quantity of notes per beat, and the dynamic profile), clicks on the New button, and presses Play to listen to the result. If he likes what he hears, he Saves it, otherwise he can repeat from start.
The files are saved on the iPhone in the proper format, with the proper extension and with a unique name. For those who are unfamiliar with File Sharing in iOS, a second screen inside the app explains clearly how to retrieve them for the usual iTunes installation.
Kaleido Ringtone is available in English, French, Italian, and German.
