[WITH SOUND] Google Translate Beatbox

Google Translate’s pronunciations may or may not impress you, but the thing’s got some beatboxing skills. Reddit user harrichr notes a fun result: 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 . 🙂 *My own “remix”: pbzb pvpkbzpv bsch tkz pbzb pvpkbzpk bsch tk kkpbzb pvpkbzpv bsch tkz pbzb pvpkbzpk bsch There’s nothing magical about this particular sequence, and there’s tons of room for experimentation: In German, anyway, “pv” and “zk” make complementary breathy sounds and clicks, respectively. Spaces add pauses. No idea why “bsch” makes that parrot-chirpy sound, but there you go. For some reason, German seems to be the best language for this, since German Google Translate rapidly strings vowelless consonants where it tends to enunciate each one in some other languages. (Which isn’t to say that there aren’t yet more tricks elsewhere.) After a little bit of playing around, “r,” “w,” and “f” seem to be promising letters for beatboxing purposes as well.

  4. Now, Here’s another tip. try to translate them into Russian. that’s another beatbox ya can hear. OMLOL example) ‘english -> Russian’ and ‘deutsch->Russian’ sounds a little different. 🙂

  5. Have you heard of “Googlecore “which was basically this? People on RYM forum jumped on this fad in late nov/early Dec 2010 and started releasing “music” tracks on this right around the same time. I’ve done a variety of non-beatbox stuff myself with google translator and still continue to do a few. There’s even a blogspot blog with all the releases if you are interested. Nice to see a video which we didn’t see the first time around. 🙂
