Da-duh-duh-da-duh-duh-da-DUH-duh. So goes the familiar tune of the iPhone’s default Marimba ringtone, as recognizable (and yet not nearly as annoying) as Nokia’s Gran Vals.
And yet what if you want to mix things up a little, but not too much? Greg Pierce, the wonder-developer at Agile Tortoise – responsible for Drafts, Terminology and others – has done the hard work for you, re-rendering iOS’ alert sounds on acoustic guitar.
Marimba is great, but you can also re-live these greatest hits in hastily-recorded guitar-O-vision:
- Piano Riff
All are made available free, and in iPhone-friendly .M4R format, ready to ring. My favorite is Piano Riff, if only because of the switch of instruments (although technically, the piano is a string instrument too).
