    Can somebody explain, in plain english, about midi ringtones on the T610.

    Particularly I understand that it can cope with midi files of more 'depth'
    than other phones.

    Is midi the only format that can be sent to the phone and how do I convert a
    segment of an MP3 to midi to use as a polyphonic ringtone.

    Thanks

    Steve

    I expect that by "depth" they are talking about the number of
    notes/instruments playing simultaneously. I have not had the chance to
    compare the T610 in any detail, but I was quite impressed by the MIDI
    playback of the T300, it did a nice job even with fairly complex MIDI files.

    Forget about converting MP3 or WAV to MIDI, it is kind of theoretically
    possible but not an option in a real life situation. You can find most
    songs, old and new, in MIDI format (varying quality mind you) on line. Bear
    in mind that most MIDI files will not have been optimised for mobile phones
    so you may find they are a little quiet or whatever.

    If you already have a T610, I can only suggest you give it a go - MIDI
    files are nice and small compared to MP3 or WAV )

    Excellent and thanks. I'm interested in how these online midi files are made
    to be honest and I have a couple of 'obscure' tracks on MP3 which I would
    like to put on the phone. Not a problem though, as you say, there's plenty
    to choose from out there.

    MIDI is a whole big subjecton its own but there is plenty of information
    online. It would be possible, with a little effort, to learn some basics and
    pick up some shareware that would allow you do make minor changes in MIDI
    files so they played back better on a phone. Alternatively, I am guessing
    there are some sites with MIDI files designed for your mobile anyways.

    The way to think of it is MIDI is just instructions on how the playback
    device (in this case the phone) should play - which notes, which instruments
    etc etc. Exactly how it sounds depends on the device as the sound is
    generated within the device Load the same MIDI file to two different types
    of mobile phone and in windows and you will get three different versions of
    the same song. They will be similar but no where near identical.
    MP3 and WAV are actual recordings ie they contain information about the
    sound which is why they are so much bigger
