Dear Nicolas and others,

I would like to confirm that in the context of musical acoustics the German 
terms "die Schwebung" and "schweben" exclusively mean "beat" and "to beat".

In other contexts these terms can have many other meanings. For example, 
already in the context of musical esthetics the meaning can be "floating" 
and "to float".
