Environmental sound recognition has become a hot topic in recent years. It is necessary to establish a database which comprises the sounds to be recognized in advance to be able to recognize the environmental sounds. In this paper, we present the design and pilot establishment of a database which will become the base of the impulsive environmental sound recognition system which is planned to establish later. This database which comprises impulsive environmental sounds will provide the requested features for the detection and recognition of sounds obtained from the environment. As offline it will be used for development and test platform for algorithms that will be developed. Besides we explain the measures taken into account during data collection for the database, since it is hard to find and record impulsive environmental sounds.
