It’s been almost half a year since Club Penguin released their popular SoundStudio mini-game as a replacement to the then infamous DJ3K, and it has been quite the success. In fact, the CP team seem so proud of their new game that they are willing to produce a whole major party in its name, which has turned out to be the SoundStudio Party. This party has elements of the popular Music Jam party and very strong elements of the Hollywood Party, so lets begin.
SoundStudio Party Walkthrough
Upon login, you will be greeted with two messages from DJ Cadence. They are show below.
The SoundStudio Party has hit the island! This is your shot at STARDOM! Just head to Snowball Records in the Snow Forts and you can record a song!
After playing all four songs, members can try out for the talent show. They’ll perform for me and special guest judges to prove they’re music masters!
Snowball records is the talent show available to all players. It can be accessed at the Snow Forts.
Upon entry, you will be asked to select a genre. You can choose from Dance, Pop, Dubstep or Rock. Each genre will make you do similar but different tasks, and will reward you with different items. The rooms are all decorated differently, but generally serve the same purpose.
In each genre, you have to click on specific buttons in a specific order, and the order is shown at the top of the room.
If done correctly, you will be rewarded with at least one item (two for members). You can click on them to add them to your inventory.
Below is a list of items which you can obtain from Snowball Records, and the genre they can be obtained in.
- Glow Bracelets [Dance]
- Rhinestone Sunglasses [Pop]
- The Rocker-chic [Dubstep]
- The Punkhawk [Rock]
Exclusive to Members:
- Dance Crew Outfit [Dance]
- Pop Star Hoodie [Pop]
- Dubstep DJ Outfit [Dubstep]
- Six-string Axe [Rock]
Play For DJ Cadence
Like Snowball Records, this is also a talent show except it is exclusively available to members and is tougher. It can also be accessed at the Snow Forts.
Like Snowball Records, you also have to select a genre. Again, you can choose from Dance, Pop, Dubstep or Rock.
Now, here is where things get a little bit different. There is an extra row of buttons to press at the top, and you are being watched by DJ Cadence. However, generally it is the same activity with a higher difficulty level.
Unfortunately, there is no reward for this so it seems a little pointless. This may, however, be a bug as an unreleased item titled the “SoundStudio Hoodie” exists. Take a look below (Hoodie does not actually say “TCPD” – this is for watermark purposes). Note the purple outline.
The Awards Ceremony, like many other things, has returned from the Hollywood Party. The room can be entered now, but it is not in use yet. It will likely be used later in the party.
The limo, like many other things, returns from the Hollywood Party. Unfortunately it stays at the Plaza so it cannot be used for transport, but it can be entered.
While Club Penguin hasn’t updated every room for this party, a lot of them have been updated with very cool designs – they are shown below.
Stadium (Snowball Records)
The Stage (Awards Ceremony)
This party is extremely disappointing to me. It seems like half a party, which isn’t even original in its own right. The amount of rooms decorated is appalling, and the amount of content is laughable. Seriously; all of the content in this party took me under five minutes to complete, and there isn’t even any replay value. The backstory behind this party is practically non-existant, and the Penguin Band, who had a whole article published in The Club Penguin Times saying that they were going to be attending the party, haven’t even turned up! I rate this party 2/10, and that is being generous. This is a total disgrace. But what do you think of the new SoundStudio Party?
