Keep it in mind that the duration of your ringtone can’t go above 30 seconds so choose accordingly.

Rest you have options for Volume and Fade-in which you can change but increasing volume above 100 percent will make the ringtone sound distorted. For the best quality, we will suggest not making any changes to any of the two.

After selecting the portion for the ringtone, click the Generate Ringtone button which you can see in the above picture, pointing by a Blue arrow.   

Then you will see a popup that will ask you for the ringtone name. But you should refrain from using file extensions while naming your ringtone. Once the name is given click on the Import to your iDevice button.
