Polyphonic & Monophonic Ringtones
If you own a cell phone then you are probably familiar with the
term ringtones. A ringtone is the sound or music your cell phone
plays to alert you that you have an incoming call. There are several
types of ringtones available - polyphonic and monophonic. Monophonic
ringtones are tunes that are comprised of a single tone. Polyphonic
ringtones are the most popular and consist of a tune that is comprised
of multiple tones, thus producing a more full sound.
The first ringtones were monophonic, which means that they were
only capable of playing one note at any given time. Monophonic ringtones
were easy to find and inexpensive, but frankly, didn't sound
all that great. Beginning in the later 1990s, polyphonic ring tones
became popular, and many cell phone manufacturers began adopting
polyphonic ringtone capability into their existing cell phone lines.
Unlike monophonic ringtones, polyphonic ringtones can play many
notes at once, creating more complex and accurate reproductions
of songs. The earliest polyphonic ring tones could only play four
notes at any one given time, but before long this figure had doubled
to eight notes. Today's polyphonic ringtones can usually handle
32 or even, in some cases, 64 notes at once, to produce very high-quality
reproductions of music, as well as a wide variety of other unusual
Both polyphonic and monophonic ringtones can be downloaded from
ringtone shops on the internet or downloaded directly from your
cellular service provider. Some ringtones are free while others
may cost you anywhere from 50 cents to $2.00 per tune. There are
also some ringtone sites that will allow you to download either
a set number or an unlimited number of ringtones per month for a
flat monthly fee. This type of fee arrangement may be the most cost
effective if you wish to download ringtones on a frequent basis.
There are various sites that can help you get ringtones that reflect
your personality and style. It is also easy to get access to editing
programs that allow you to change the sound of a song to make them
unique for your cellphone.
