Depends on how you want to play it.

If you''re going to play a single note, it might be easiest to generate it procedurally (procedural sound! yay!)

A simple sound is just a sine wave. All you have to do is adjust the frequence and amplitude of it, and you''ve got your sound. Most sound APIs have a feature by which you provide a callback function that it calls each frame, and that function works out the numerical value of the sample.

Something along the lines of

thisSample = amplitude * sin( timeSinceSoundStart * frequency)

would generate a fairly simple sine wave, I think.
