Does anyone know if there is an audio dataset containing explosions? I'm trying to train a neural network in recognizing explosions sounds.
I think this is probably what you are looking for Google-audiose-explosion. Also you might find other audio datasets that might fit into your search criteria under https://research.google.com/audioset/dataset/index.html by filtering using words like "bang" or "boom" etc.
I just came across this freesound-explosions-db , so maybe it can be a good alternative to the google dataset.
