Hey everyone, Mewtwo20XX here! Back at it again with another tutorial, this time focusing on definitive way on how to make your very own custom music without any problems in Mario Kart 8! Also thank you, BLGotSwag for giving me permission to make this tutorial! It couldn’t be done without him!

Things Required; 

      -MK8 Info Dump
      -Audacity
      -Brstm Builder
      -BrawlBox
      -Looping Audio Convertor
      -Final Lap Stream Maker
      -Mp3/Wav file of your prefer song

1. Open up the MK8 Info Dump & go to the music category listed below. Next scroll through the docs until you find the name of the song you want to replace.
 
Note: Keep in mind on the number of channels that a course has. For example, most courses has the minimum of four music channels with the exception of: 

-Wii Wario’s Gold Mine
-3DS Music Park
-Water Park
-Shy Guy Falls
-Dolphin Shoals (Laps 1 & 2)
-Electrodrome
-Mount Wario (Lap 2)
-Cloudtop Cruise
-Super Bell Subway
-Wild Woods


2. Open your audio file with Audacity.

Note: Depending on the number of channels your song needs, requires you to drag the audio file a certain amount of times in Audacity:

-4 channels = 2 audio files
-6 channels = 3 audio files
-8 channels = 4 audio files


3. Once in Audacity you want to click on the audio files & select the option “Split Stereo to Mono” & do that for all of them. Making sure that each individual audio file says Mono & silencing channels 3-4.

4. Afterward export them all as WAV 16 & making sure that they’re in the same format. Rename each wav file with a number depending on how many audio files were exported. Then placing them into the wav folder & open up Multi-Brstm batch builder/GUI & BrawlBox.

5. In BrawlBox (file/new/audio/BFSTM Audio Stream) with your newly wav file & try to loop it the best that you can. Taking note of the start & end times listed. (Let will help us with the next step)

6. In Multi-Brstm batch builder/GUI select them number of channels you want to have (4, 6, or 8) Then naming the file (preferably the name of the course music you want to replace) & click “Build Batch File”. 

7. Once finished, run build.bat (A command prompt will appear, wait until the program finishes doing its thing & it’ll disappear once complete. Giving you a brstm file in the out folder)

8. Drag & drop your brstm file in Looping Audio Convertor. Change the following options to the ones listed below:

-Output format: Bfstm
-For files with more than one audio channel: Put all channels in one file


Click enter & you should now have a bfstm file.

9. The last step is drag & drop your newly bfstm in the Final Lap Convertor. Click save as & change the upper case “N” to “F” & click save. You should now have a final lap variant of the bfstm file.

Congratulations you’ve successive created your very first custom music file!
