    Okay, some application I installed put a "concerto" tone on my Treo 700p. I'm pretty sure that it was mobileclock because when I upgraded to a new version I lost it, and I really liked this tone to use as my alarm. However, the developer says that it is a file that is included on many Treos, so I was wondering if anyone had the .midi file and could post it here.

    I am having my friend (who has my Treo 650) check to see if that tone is on there. If it is, I will see if I can get him to email it to me. Might be a while though as I am at work. If you don't hear back from me by 6 or 7, shoot me a PM and I will check myself.

    He says it isn't on the Treo 650. Goodluck.

    Its also not on the Treo 700w, I checked the emulator I have for it. I guess either the developer was wrong, or something else installed it that I don't know about.

    I have a Cingular 650 with the Concerto tone, but it doesn't generally appear as a choice for most of my applications. It isn't listed in the OEM Sounds application, nor is it visible as an individual file using Filez. I have MobileClock installed, but Concerto doesn't show up as a choice there (version 3.8.05u). It does show up as a choice in Snappermail, but I couldn't say whether or not that's the point of origin. I have about 70 aftermarket apps installed, so it could have come from any number of places.

    Could you maybe post the file for it here?

    I'm not sure where it's located. I can choose it as a tone with Snappermail, but I don't know where the file "lives". It's not in the regular sounds database. If someone could give me a clue as to where to look............

    Is it possible to add it as an attachment in Snappermail and send the file to yourself?

    Here you go; this is Concerto from my Treo 650. The old alarm sounds are in System_MIDI_Sounds.pdb, creator id psys, and the Sounds database that you can manage is MIDI_Ring_Tones, creator id MCnl. After performing a backup, I renamed System_MIDI_Sounds to MIDI_Ring_Tones and changed its creator ID to MCnl...voila, there's Concerto.

    Thanks for the explanation regarding the two separate databases and their locations.

    So if I simply rename the file and change the creator id, can I manage the content of the (originally) System_MIDI_Sounds using the Sounds manager? Are the contents of the two files completely compatible? Or are the system midi sounds somehow restricted, such as file size or some other criterion?

    This is valuable to me because Butler has a nag function that will alarm without turning on the screen, but only if you use the 'old' system alarms. That list is rather limited. I'd like to add a preferred alarm sound to that file for use by Butler's nag. Will that work?

    I've no idea - I was making an "old" alarm available to the "new" tones management system; it sounds like you want to go in the other direction.

    Give it a try...let us know how it works out.
