"Roger Dean is an English artist, designer, architect, and publisher. He is best known for his work on posters and album covers for musicians, which he began painting in the late 1960s. The covers often feature exotic, fantasy landscapes. His work has sold more than sixty million copies world-wide." - Wikipedia

Cover of Yes – Keys To Ascension

This playlist is a collection of albums featuring cover art designed by Roger Dean. From 1969's Earth & Fire, to the new album of Asia, released this month; 67 albums in total. I picked one standout track, or my personal favorite, from every album.

Get this collection in one Spotify playlist: Roger Dean's Album Covers: Chronological Collection (67 tracks from 67 albums). Albums are sorted by release date. See Album Cover Gallery for selected album covers with comment. By the way, I always thought the cover of Jon Anderson's Olias of Sunhillow was by Dean. It's not, but the album itself was partly inspired by Dean's cover for Fragile.

    Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the Klingeltondownload ringtone download. Sure, it allows you to download ringtones and even wallpapers, but what’s so unique about it that it pushes people to choose it rather than the built-in ringtones and wallpapers on their device?

    In this article, we’re going to talk about the up-and-coming Klingeltondownload ringtone download and why you should use it right now. Before anything else, you should first know about the Klingeltondownload Ringtone.

  7. is a platform that allows the downloading and uploading of ringtones as well as other customizations such as wallpapers, themes, icons, and more. While it was made specifically for Android devices, it can still operate on an iOS mobile device.

    It became well-known due to the wide variety of ringtones that it offers, as well as high-quality wallpapers available to users.

    For that reason, Klingeltondownload is more of a source for ringtone and wallpaper downloads. Testimonies from users also stated that Klingeltondownload cannot be compared to other apps that provide wallpapers and ringtones that aren’t compatible with their device.

    The interface of the app contains a lot of sections, including “Favorite”, “Download”, and more.
    Fortunately, you can seek assistance from the support team in case you don’t have any idea how to use the app, or even the website itself.

    There are also a lot of designs on the platform that wasn’t there in its previous versions. Put simply, the UI design improved a lot for the last couple of years that Klingeltondownload is operating.

    Although a lot of the ringtones on the platform are free, there are also those that aren’t. In short, you will have to pay a few dollars if you want to get all the ringtones on ZEDGE. On the other hand, the wallpapers are all free.

    To be precise, there are over 4,000 wallpapers available for free on the platform, and hundreds of thousands of ringtones, including those that are free and not.

    With that, you now know the basics of a Klingeltondownload ringtone download. But this doesn’t tell you anything about why ZEDGE is popular. So why exactly should you use the platform?

    Part 2. Why Should You Use ZEDGE Ringtones?
    There are a lot of apps and websites out there where you can download ringtones and wallpapers for free, so what sets apart ZEDGE? For one, you can customize your phone by choosing from the countless options of ringtones, notification sounds, wallpapers, themes, and many more customizations on ZEDGE.

    There’s also a recommendation section where you can check out the option most-suited for you.
    Additionally, you can check out live wallpapers from the app, which might be the highlight of the wallpaper collection.

    You can also interact with your fellow users in the ZEDGE community by either uploading ringtones that you want to share or supporting them by downloading theirs. Lastly, there are games that can keep you occupied while you’re downloading ringtones, although the games themselves are also downloadable.

    At this point, you should already be convinced to use the platform for ZEDGE ringtone download.
    So where are you going to get the ringtones and wallpapers that you want to download?

  8. if you're only going to be using your audio file for ringtones, the maximum length is 40 seconds—if you think you might want to use it for alerts and alarms as well, keep it to 30 seconds or less. If your file is shorter than that, you're set—otherwise, you'll need to specify the start and end points. Click OK, then select the track again and choose File, Convert, and Create AAC Version or Create MP3 Version (it will vary depending on how Apple Music's encoders are set up.)

    That's your ringtone created. A brand new file will appear, with the start and stop times you selected. If you've chopped out part of a song, you'll want to go back to the Get Info panel of the original and remove the start and top times, otherwise the next time it pops up in one of your playlists it's going to only play those 30 or 40 seconds. Next, we need to see this file on disk—right-click on it and choose Show in Finder (macOS) or Show in File Explorer (Windows.)

    If your file shows an extension of .m4a, simply change it to .m4r (they're both the same AAC/MP4 format, but the tweak tells your iPhone it's a ringtone file). If you've exported the file as an MP3, you need to get it into AAC/MP4 format first—you can do this via a program such as QuickTime on macOS or the previously mentioned Audacity on Windows.
