Ringtone contest November 1st


#1

The winner(s) of the ringtone contest will be decided November 1st, 2017 by a vote of the Purism team members

what does happen tomorrow? do you write a blogpost with winners? or do you just mail them?


#2

Both. But the voting process will take a day or two more than we first thought, because we got a lot of ringtones.


#3

any news? some winner(s) of the ringtone contest? :blush:
Thanks


#4

Will be publicly announced. We have ~180 sounds in 30 submissions, so the voting process will take much more time than we thought.


#5

It’s good to have many choices, although it requires time. Thanks for the update! :+1:t3:


#6

Thanks for the update.


#7

And the winning tones are…?

Why not post the winning sounds here (or in a development blog) so we can all have a listen to the future phone?

#9

I wonder if the shipping for the winners will be after Q3, 2019, will be according to the date of pre-orders …

Any info about that?


#10

Can’t imagine it wouldn’t ship at the same time. I hope they include the runners’ up sounds on the Librem 5 as well though. I get the winners’ will be default, but would be nice to include the others.


#11

Ya know , I really liked the Purism Librem 5 update video music on your videos on youtube .

Will the librem 5 have the capability of using an mp3 for a ringtone ?


#12

I imagine you will be able to use any audio format that is playable on the device. PureOS can play mp3’s out of the box.


#13

using FLAC as a ringtone on a phone … what a day :heart_eyes:


#14

Well yes . But sometimes devices that have the ability to play mp3s dont have the software option to set one as a ringtone and just use whats in their proprietary ringtone basket.


#15

Ringdroid is on f-droid and is an excellent program to splice mp3s and save them as ringtone, notification, alarms, etc.

On android I just used my music player POWERamp . Im going to miss that app . It was the best music player Ive ever seen .

Although the reason I decided to order the L5 was a seemingly benign detail to most of you . but FAWggin YUUUUUGE to me . The fact Purism demod an app called Lollypop I think it was . A music app and this music app had a 7 or 10 band EQ . That EQ is what pushed me over the edge to buy this device. I really really hate tinny un equalized sound of most music players. And the L5 doubling as a music player is the most important function for me .

I dont care about the camera , I dont care about VoIP calling , I dont care about mobile gaming . I LOVE music . Of all kinds. From Ludavico Einaudi to Insane clown posse to The Frowning to Rascal Flatts .

I really hope this device has a great sound chip. Otherwise I’m going to be having a really bad time.
