Hi Auditory list members, I would like to alert you to some high-quality recordings of sound events that I have made available for research purposes at via the "sound event downloads" tab near the top of the page. These are recordings of various categories of sound events such as impacts, scrapes, drips, etc. that were made with a variety of hand-held everyday objects. The goal was to make accurate recordings of multiple exemplars within each category so as to capture the naturally occurring acoustic variation within and across each type of event. My lab at Brown University is currently collecting normative data on these sounds. More sounds will be uploaded to this NSF-funded database in the future. The objects and recording equipment are documented on the website and further information is available upon request.
