Audio Tone Test Pattern File Needed

Does anyone have an audio recording test pattern they wouldn't mind sharing with me?

I'm looking for the type that has about 4-6 tones, starting low and ending high in both pitch and volume. Kind of a ba-ra-da-bap sound.

It's brief and kind of pleasant sounding.

I searched at FindSounds.com, but only came up with single beeps or tones that sounded like "attack of the killer tones"...all really abrasive...more for warning sounds.

Thanks!

forgot to mention did u want it fluctuating or jsut aset tone?
test tones range from anything really, but u need a steady FLAT picth which covers all ranges.

most NLE's have a test tone set within the SW, btu i dont knwo if you want a chord or jsut a pitch

Thanks, Peter.

Actually, I'm using it for something other than a real test pattern. I was trying to dig up a particular sound to use for a project and the test pattern I remember would work nicely there.

I'm an audio nimnod, so as far as which frequency, I have no idea. I'll be using it in FCP if that tells you anything.

The main reason for wanting that particular sound was because it sounds slick compared to the normal beeps and tones that I've found available on the web. You know, stuff like the ring for the video phone on Austin Powers...when you search for beep, alert, tone, ring, etc....all you get are standard warning beeps, sirens, steady tones, and traditional phone rings.
