No, I've never heard of a site that offers what you are looking for.

However, You could use the following program to create the note, then export it as a midi. It has a huge library of instruments to use.

(all the programs are freeware)

www.anvilstudio.com

Here are some other programs that might assist.

Captures audio and records to mp3. Make sure to set your windows record volume to stereo.

Edit mp3s

Edit wav
http://audacity.sourceforge.net

Does many different tasks with audio.

This program will capture audio and record to wav. Again, make sure your record volume is set to stereo.

control panel > sounds > audio > record volume > check stereo (If stereo is not showing, then in the same menu, goto options > properties, then select stereo. It will then appear for you to check)

I would suggest using a midi program for this purpose.  You would not need to download the files, just simply create your own.  Personally I use Cakewalk, but there are loads of free midi players / editors out there.

I use powertab (www.powertab.com) to write guitar tab files...the program also outputs to midi...so you could easily create midi files of the notes, or just play them back as you need.

You might also want to try a program called pitchplayer ..it's more for ear training but it generates notes
