Probably a belt or possibly a tensioner bearing.

could always buy some belt conditioner and see if the problem goes away.

hah, well, at least that means it is probably the belt, odd that the conditioner would make it worse, it's just supposed to make the surface tacky.

I guess you had better try tightening it.

The conditioner will make it get quieter for a bit, but it will usually get louder again after a short time. If it does this, get a new belt

Belt conditioner is junk.

Put a SMALL bit of dielectric grease on it. That usually helps stop squeaks.
