I need help to create the Legend of Zelda "get item" sound in MIDI

I am working on a robot that is capable of creating MIDI songs and I want it to make the sound of when you get an item in the traditional legend of Zelda games.


I cannot find the notes or a MIDI guide, all I find are downloads and playback of the actual sound clip. Help please :-)

Is this what you're looking for?

Response by poster: I am not looking for the MIDI itself, I am looking for the notes. Sheet music would be good as i can translate that to MIDI when i program the robot. The issue is I need to manually program each note and the length.

Best answer: The notes are Ab Bb B C, in what sounds like parallel fifths.

You can open it in a program like Music Master Works that turns midis into sheet music (more or less...).

No disrespect, Aquaman, but while your roots are right, the harmony intervals aren't parallel fifths. The last chord I believe is a C dim, spelled C, Eb, Gb.

Sounds to me like four major chords, ascending chromatically, from F major to G# major, all in root position with possibly more than an octave between the one and five, certainly in multiple voices (instruments).
