I need to know how to use Google Calendar to create alarms. I don't want it to send me a notification, I want it go off like an alarm clock. I tried researching this using Google, but the directions are wrong.

If I use that app it will go off the next day AND in the future. I want to be able to set different alarms, using different ringtones or music, on exact dates and times. I need something other than Google Calendar. I tried using that and it just beeps. I want something that will go off like an alarm clock and keep going until i shut it off.

I've tried that. I want something to go off like an alarm clock. google calendar just sends a notification and a beep. I need an alarm clock. If google calendar will do this then plz advise me as to how to set it to do so.

I want something that rings over and over and over. How do I do this and make it really loud? I need the exact steps plz.
You can download plenty of notification tones off of the internet, YouTube often has sound bites you can grab using a YouTube converter like www.ytmp3.cc. just be careful on that particular website because it does have pop-ups that will redirect you.

Once the notification sound is has been downloaded you can use any Android file manager to drop into the notifications folder on your phones internal storage or an SD card if you have one. That way the device knows it's supposed to be used for notifications and isn't just your music.

if you find something you'd like I can create a repetitive version that isn't just a one and done, I have the tools and know how.

should it be an event, a task, or a reminder?
I don't know if you're asking me but I think all three of those can be set to repeat

you can also set it to override the phone being vibrate or silent

In my second screenshot, that is the default Android settings app page for calendar and under the Sound (app provided sound) part is where you set your custom notification sound.
