Isn't this... the same Daoh? Could this game be using the same voice clip bank? Could this help in any way? (probably not, right?)
It's a very common sound, I've got it on my Roland piano as well. But it could be that they're replicating the same effect, instead of using the exact same sample.

That dow sound is the JzVoice Dow instrument from the Roland ED Sound Canvas SC-8820 synth, which Wario Land 4 also uses. Miitopia also uses the JzVoice Bop instrument from the SC-8820.

Zero-G is pretty popular among game composers in general, and Nintendo also uses their libraries quite a bit, as SimonMKWii said. For example, two drum loops from Zero-G Datafile Two were used in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and a drum loop from Zero-G Ethnic Flavours and a flute from Zero-G Ethnic was used in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Well, I didn't really find anything... except for "XTC 418" which is in the folder Hook+Shout 09. It sounds a lot like a clip that's in the WL4 soundfont which I THINK goes unused. If it is used then I don't remember where.

Guys!
I found some samples in the GTA 1 soundtrack!
Has anyone mentioned this yet?

This has the "and unity" clip in it:
At least I think it's the same clip.

And this has some of the female samples in it.
Listen in the last third of the video.
It has the "That's mother FUNK YEAH" or whatever, as well as "listen to the funky drummer"
It's very likely the same clips.
I'll see if I can find any more.

8:29 is almost certainly the female voice from the WL4 intro song. I'm surprised Nintendo got away with using this without giving the GTA creators credit for it. Do they even know about this?

It's a stock sound effect/voice clip from a sound library.
Anyone can buy those and use them. So both GTA and WL4 got them from the same source.
What we're trying to find out is what that source is, so we can get all the original clips in high quality, to recreate the song in HD.

Oh, I see. I never knew it worked that way. Didn't know that those sound fx are in the public domain.
