That odd little noise...

Can I download that little test tone they used to play at the start of casette tapes?

I used to love that noise, and I'd like to get wav of it. I located a sine wave sweep, which is like it, but not quite it. My searching has been fruitleess, probably because I don't know the proper name for it.
I seem to recall there being two different sounds. One was similar to the sine wave sweep, while the other was a not a sweep at all, but a little riff. I may be misremembering, though.
