Music box Effect

I don't know if any body could turn a normal song into something like Music box effect (it's sound like music box)

I just want to ask what's the trick to do so, because it's cool for many song, and to be used as ringtone as well

Here's an example:

Just asking :p
My intention was to make a music box version of Forrest Gump Feather theme :p

Yes you could do this with a Xylophone VST instrument - I'll take a look and see if I can find a good free one...

From there you just load that VST into your software, and record a MIDI track in the melody of the music box tune you want. The high xylophone notes would do fine for the main music box melody, and the softer jingly tones in the background you could use any kind of song bell type instrument, not sure what of the top of my head..

In fact you could load in the precise melody with this MIDI file of the Forest Gump feather theme! (If you're able to import midi data into whatever software you're using)

Then you just need to choose an instrument to play your MIDI melody...

Heres a free VST that can make xylophone type noises (among other things)

Thanks mate, I'll try the paid version too, it's ok for me ;)

Oh that VST is only a free version - it was a students project it looks like. If you're ok with spending cash on a new VST there are probably better options, I'll take a look...
