How to Create a Sound File

You can watch our video tutorial on how to order, or, if you have further questions, you can read the rest of this article or contact us on our contact page.

There are many different software applications you can use to record an audio file. Audacity is a program that can be downloaded for free from their home page and works on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux. Other options are GarageBand or QuickTime Player for Mac, Sound Recorder for Windows, or the video recorder on your phone. Just search for Apps or programs for your favorite device. The clip can be no longer than six seconds. Preferred file types include .mp3, .wav, .ogg, .m4a, .mov, .mp4, .3gp, .wmv and .wma.

Some ideas of sounds you can use:

  1. Spoken text (you can make it sound more awesome by adding effects)
  2. Clip of your favorite song lyric
  3. Record your favorite quote from your favorite movie
  4. Nature sounds (rain, birds chirping, etc…)
  5. Video of a son or daughter saying I love you

Upload Your Sound:

  1. Go to our order page and select the type of jewelry you would like
  2. Click the “Upload a Sound File” button and select your file
  3. Click “Add to cart” and complete the order process

Troubleshooting:

If the sound doesn’t upload on our form, try converting the file to an .mp3 or .wav file. Make sure the file is not too long (keep it within 6 seconds) and the name of the file only contains letters (no spaces or symbols).
