The Background Music Generator is an object that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. It is a special remote manufactured by an unspecified party which is capable of creating background music.


The Background Music Generator is a white handheld remote with several buttons in various colors, some of which have music-themed icons. When activated, the device creates a loud music track in the surrounding area, without any source of the music being evident. The device has a number of music tracks available for play. Also, the device can be equipped with a "heart-iris" upgrade which lets the user create a black heart-shaped iris out effect in real life.[1]

The Background Music Generator's iris out effect,

Wanting to make his attacks on Seaside Island more exciting, Dr. Eggman ordered a Background Music Generator, though he had several delivery issues at the post office. Once he got it, Eggman had the device play a track while he launched an attack, which was foiled by Tails. Since Tails earned the love of his crush Zooey in the process though, Eggman had the Background Music Generator play a romantic tune for them while using its "heart-iris" upgrade.[1]
