I am trying to use the sound function on the NXT to make it play the super marios theme song. Does anybody have any idea what the code would look like. I have programed a lot of other things but i have never really messed with sound. Thanks,

Here is a ROBOTC program I made a while ago to play the Mario theme on the VEX Cortex.
Also, here is a midi file and the resulting converted rmi file (used BricxCC) that both contain the Mario theme. The rmi file should play on the NXT (though I haven't tested it):

If you don't want to write your own sound output function, like sumasmreq did, you can use ROBOTC's built in tone function:
void PlayTone(const int frequency, const int durationIn10MsecTicks)

Just some music theory:

The lowest A on a piano has a frequency of 220. Every octave up, the frequency of a note doubles. Since there are 12 notes per octave, this means that to calculate the frequency of the nth note on a keyboard, you would use this:

short notefreq(short notenum)
return round(pow(220,(notenum+12)/12));

where the lowest A is notenum zero.
