The sound event recordings were taken from a subset of Vocal Imitation Set ( While the original VocalImitationSet only contains vocal imitations of a single reference recording per class, this new dataset contains vocal imitations of multiple reference recordings per class. Class names and filenames in this dataset are matched with the VocalImitationSet. Read the following paper to get more detailed information about VocalImitationSet.
