Well, I never saw talk of this before. A certain track from the Gran Turismo soundtrack features a lot of familiar sound effect samples:

I initially discovered the track while browsing japanese jazz fusion music, specifically done by Masahiro Andoh (known for T-Square) in his 1996 album Andy's, itself was apparently used as the basis for the Gran Turismo.

The actual album's version of the track for comparison:

Just something really odd to stumble upon; a well known japanese composer using sound effects from a western FPS Mac game for a soundtrack for a racing game on the Playstation.

Hey, that's neat. Considering that Durandal came out near the tail of 1995, not too many months between that and the track's release.
