Re: sound events database

Many thanks to everyone! Now I have a lot of databases (almost all
that you suggested) and an interesting paper that helps me with the
compilation strategy (Shafiro and Gygi 2004). I will send a mail when
I have an interesting advance on the compilation task.

Best Regards,
