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.

Hi -

You might be interested in the "Sound Events" database from CMU's Auditory

The events are not exactly the type you describe, but they're cleanly

to what you're after.

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.
