Record (WarioWare: D.I.Y.)

From the Super Mario Wiki
The record mode

Records, along with microgames and comics, are one of the three main features in WarioWare: D.I.Y. In addition to being able to compose their own records, players can also listen to pre-made records from Diamond Studios used in the game's built-in microgames.

Diamond Studios[edit]

Main article: List of records in WarioWare: D.I.Y.

Diamond Studios's records consist of 18 records for each microgame host (Mona, Jimmy T., Ashley, Orbulon and 9-Volt), adding up to a total of 90 pre-made records.

D.I.Y. Music[edit]

Self-composed records can be created using the Super MakerMatic 21 in the D.I.Y. Studio, which are then sent to the Music department of the D.I.Y. Shop.


There are 24 record blocks. There are two measures in a block, and the player can make the song from a microgame-length song to a song utilizing all 24 blocks. Players can use instruments (see below), ranging from piano to UFO to 8-bit. Players can change the tempo (60BPM-240BPM) and can use the shuffle beat to add swing to notes placed right next to each other. There are four music tracks, each one playing different notes/instruments/volume. Then, the rhythm is a drum set, which there is a selection of eight possible drums. Unlike the music, which can only play one note at a time, the rhythm can play four drums at once. Players can choose between the following:

  • Instrument: Changes the instrument or drum set, there are 64 instruments and 8 drum sets
  • Volume: There can be silence, very soft, soft, normal, and loud
  • Balance: One speaker can have more sound than the other, or can be equally balanced

Players can use the red backpack to change the three per track, and will set that for the whole song unless changed in a measure. However, though, when opening a new measure, the settings set are the same per track.
