RE : [AUDITORY] sound events database


you should have a look to the sound bank by Marcell MM (http://marcellm.people.cofc.edu/?referrer=webcluster&;). Normative data concerning these stimuli are published in the study by Marcell et al. (2000):

Objet : [AUDITORY] sound events database

Dear List,

Anyone knows where could I find a calibrated database of sound events?

I mean events like car, trucks and motorcycle passby, birds, dogs ...
alarms. It is better if they are far from the background noise and
each event in a separated wavefile or very distant in time (not

The sounds that I am searching must not be in loosely compression
formats and must have a calibration reference  (e.g.) in order to know
the sound pressure level that represents the full scale of the file.

I will appreciate any help.

Best regards,

Ernesto Accolti.
