AIMP for Android: Audio Cutter

For the 15th birthday of the AIMP project, we have prepared small “gift” for our users: the Audio Cutter app. It is a new tool that extends features of mobile version of AIMP. The tool is designed to create and manage ringtones.

Main window contains few tabs with content:

My Music

This tab contains all user’s music files that indexed by system audio library.

Following commands are available for music files:

  • Crop
  • Open with external app
  • Share the music file using external app or bluetooth
  • Set as default ringtone for call, alarm or notification
  • Set as ringtone for specified contact
  • Remove from the device

My Ringtones

This tab contains custom and system ringtones.

Following commands are available for ringtones:

  • Crop
  • Open with external app
  • Share the ringtone using external app or bluetooth
  • Set as default ringtone for call, alarm or notification
  • Set as ringtone for specified contact
  • Remove custom ringtone from the device

Note that some external app may not process system ringtones because of access restrictions to system files.

My Contacts

This tab contains your contacts and ringtones that set to it.

Following commands are available for contacts:

  • Open ringtone with external app
  • Select ringtone for the contact
  • Reset contact’s ringtone to default ringtone

Creating the ringtone

Its so easy to create the ringtone. First, you need to find the file or ringtone that will be used to create new ringtone. Next, select the “Crop..” command in its context menu. The app will invoke simple audio editor:

Here you need to select range to cut, use the sliders or time edit boxes to do that. Next, click the “save” button. The app will export selected range of source audio file to new file using MP3 encoder in background. You will see new entry in “My Ringtones” when export will done.

Integration with AIMP

The Audio Cutter feature has been implemented as separate application, but it integrates with the AIMP player app. Now, when you invoke the “set as ringtone” command in AIMP, the player will invoke the Audio Cutter app to process the command.

Thanks to the tool, now AIMP can set as ringtone all file formats, including files split by CUE. If file format is not supported by OS natively, the Audio Cutter will convert it to MP3.
