Google BeatBox

Why mess with a mic when searching for your next creative drum sample- instead turn to the page that already does everything for you and “Google it”

Yes, from the servers of the company that made us dumb- and then smart again- comes a new hack that is seriously fun and going seriously viral.  A quirky interpretation of German speech means that letter combos like: “pv zk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk” come out sounding just like a beatbox.

It all came from Reddit, with the following instructions:

1) Go to Google Translate

2) Set the translator to translate German to German

3) Copy + paste the following into the translate box: pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch

4) Click “listen”

5) Be amazed 🙂

Then came the follow ups!

An instrument list:

zk = suspended cymbal

bschk = snare

pv = brush

bk = bass

tk = flam1

vk = roll tap

kt = flam2

kttp = flam tap

krp = hi hat tap

pv = short roll

th = better hi hat

thp, ds = instant rimshot.

and just a few of the many variations on a theme

The Latin Version

Technocopter

Helicopter

Dubstep

Rewind!

Russian

And Finally, CDM pointed out that its on it sway to becoming a meme

    it still works, but keep in mind any characters that aren’t part of the beatbox “language” will immediately deactivate the listen/beatbox button. Look at the list of letter combinations at the top of this article. And to all the trolls on here, please go away.
    And a special shoutout to “Minimal” [quote comment=”40730″]hmmm… ok

    I would personally use a simple program like Audacity (free) and just set it to record the internal sound card’s output. You can chop it up in Audacity or use a different DAW that you’re more comfortable with, and export the polished files into your favorite file extension. So long as you put all those sounds in the same place it should be easy to find and play with in Ableton. Hope this helps.

  • Trick

    yeah I’d like to get some of these sounds recorded into ableton live…How would I do that from google translate?
