Hi! First post, nice to meet you ^^
I'm working on a design and wanted to introduce some onomatopoeias there: I'm looking for an onomatopoeia that fits with beatboxing / loud music (the character is singing).
I'd found on (Japanese-to-English SFX Sound Effects Translations @ The JADED Network that パパラパラパラ is commonly used to represent crazy noise sounds but I don't remember to had seen it.
Any ideas? :/

I would use ズンタズンズンタ, ドゥンタドゥンドゥンタ or like that.
パパラパラパラ sounds like a motor horn to me, especially Love Theme from The Godfather.

Love your suggestion! Thank you! Worked way better than the one I found! :)
