Music Change 1 is an installable performance-enhancing component for Extreme Gears. Its actual appearance is unknown, though it is presented as an icon on the head-up display in the top-left corner of the game screen. Its icon is a dark yellow-colored circle with the image of a golden speaker, a golden eighth note above and two pairs of golden curve lines at the sides that resemble soundwaves, inscribed in it.
In gameplay, Music Change 1 is a customizable Gear Part that can only be attached to different Extreme Gears. It can be bought from the shop for 1,500 Rings.
When in use, Music Change 1 will change the background music during a race to "High Flying Groove", Team Heroes' instrumental theme in Sonic Riders, until the player deactivates it or finishes the race.
If Music Change 1 is installed into the front slot, it becomes active in gameplay once the race begins. If installed into the rear slot, however, the player can activate, and as well deactivate, Music Change 1 by switching stance by turning his/her body around due to the Kinect controls of the game.
