Cheat Sheet for Google Translate to become into a Beatbox!
If you want to customize the beat, here is the key:
- 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.
Using the key, you can create beats of any of your famous bands. I managed to hunt out the beat of the famous We Will Rock You by Queens (Paste this and click listen: “bh; bh; pv. – bh; bh; pv. – bh; bh; pv. – bh; bh; pv”). From what I understand, these tricks work best when translating from German to German.
