Upon further research (particularly hacking the songs), it is clear to me that I was wrong and you were right. The sound I falsely attributed to the game is impossible to create with its actual instrumentation. (I guess I remembered playing that MIDI from before through the SYG-70 softsynth that came with FF7, and confused it with FF6's original instrumentation because the samples were similar). I am duly humbled and apologetic.

Cool, no problem! Glad we got that sorted out. Part of me wonders if maybe what you were remembering was the hand clap used in several songs in Secret of Mana? Examples:

Many of SoMs tunes also use a specific snare sound that could be mistaken as a clap. Hand claps were quite prolific in 80s/90s pop music too, so there's that too... :-)

Or maybe the noise that it makes when a boss dies, which is quite particular.
