Dear Kamil, what do you mean exactly with "isolated phoneme database"? Do you mean phonemes spoken in isolation, or a database with files each containing a phone extracted from continuous speech recordings? In the first case, the models you train won't be of much use for ASR: due to coarticulation, the actual sounds (phones) you will find in speech will differ greatly from your isolated phoneme recordings. In the second case, you could generate such database from TIMIT with a script.
