Noisemakers are a gameplay gimmick first introduced in Lips.
By shaking the mic, players are able to use noisemakers to their advantage. At first, only a bit of Star Stream power is gained by shaking, however if players shake the wireless microphone in sync with the rhythm, they are able to gain huge chunks of Star Stream power and the Party medal.
Players can freely change the type of noisemakers being used by selecting each song's options menu. The types of noisemakers are as follows:
|Name||Mic Shake||A Button||B Button||Y Button||X Button||RB||LB||LB+RB||Default Setting In:|
|Party||Tambourine||Tambourine||Handclap||Rattle||Jingle Bell||Güiro (High Notes)||Güiro (Low Notes)||Crash Cymbal||Most Alternative songs.|
