A couple of BAFTA nominated composers who became fed up with the poor quality of ring tones of film and tv sound tracks have decided to have a go themselves.
www.protones.net is offering ringtones of popular film & tv soundtracks, each one individually crafted to work on a mobile phone by film, tv & computer game soundtracks company Bob & Barn Ltd. Using a unique way of transforming a score into a ring tone friendly format, they spend two days on each one to ensure they are as close to the original as possible. They will also give customers a free tone if they are not completely satisfied with their first choice.
Taking advantage of their enviable connections with film composers and orchestrators, Protones have been able to source full master scores to work from. From this score an orchestrator creates a 'take down’ or shortened lower polyphony version (ie squeezing a 90 piece orchestra into a 16-note polyphonic ringtone), which is then loaded to a musical sequencer program. Protones then create the ring tones from this file by prioritising certain sounds, changing volumes and generally ensuring the end result is the best sound possible for the current polyphonic handsets.
Protones cost £3.50 for one tone and £5 for two. To download a ring tone visit www.protones.net.
