Hi, I'm not really sure what I can do for you. I don't have the original midi files any more I'm afraid :(

No probs. Yeah, it was a fun game to work on - I made a "new" Populous track a few years ago, check out the downloads section.

Where is gone this bonus track ? =/

After an hour spent on Google, I found that the file was named "Mark 'TDK' Knight - Populous 4 - Idea 02.mp3"...

So maybe there's also an "Idea 01.mp3" ? =)

Many thanks !

Here's the MP3 I've found after many hours of Google research :
Mark 'TDK' Knight - Populous 4 - Idea 02.mp3

You should update this page to add the missing songs. ^^;

By the way, I loved a lot the musics you made for Populous 3.
I'm still listening to it since 1998, it proves the quality of your work. =)

Ahh well that song wasn't written for Populous 3, so that's why its not on the page. I did have some of my other tracks online, but someone took them and put them on one of those streaming websites, so I took them all down.

Yes, 13 years ago and still people enjoy the music - great news really, I'm rather honoured that it all went down so well :)

Hey mate, luv all the music in Populous the beginning and DK2...just quick question, where IF possible, can I find that cool little wardrum loop that plays when you are fighting in Populous - TB...I do remixes and such so if I could make a little remix with one of your work and stick it on youtube..of course full credit to you and would luv the midis too but can't find them anywhere lol, One more thing..DK3..hope you're the music composer for that one when it comes out..or its called War for the Overworld or something like that. cheers

Hi,

The war drums loops were made up from individual ethnic samples I'm afraid, they weren't originally loops. I had a load of individual drum samples and just played around until I got loops which I think worked.... you can do the same ;)

The MIDI's, or rather Cubase files, for Pop and DK2 don't exist any more. I stupidly didn't take a copy when I left the company, and I believe the hard drives on the music computers were formatted :( I know, I'm an idiot.

It would be rather cool to do something for WFTO if I can find the time. Depends what the developers want really.

Huh ! I just rediscovered Pop 3 (only played to the demo back then) and fell in love with the music. So sad this one isn't in a Populous game. The changes of tonality after 2:35 feel really good ! :)
Mark, do you have more Populous 4 drafts or music in a similar vein available somewhere ? I'm craving for more !

I'm wondering, where did you get the inspiration for this style of music ? And did you record the voices ?

Hey - that track was written for a fan inspired 'Populous' which I don't think was ever finished. I was going to write a load more, but the momentum came to a stop.

That's all I'm afraid, nothing more...

The voices were from a sample CD, Voices of Native America I think, then pitched up.

As for inspiration, I knew the soundtrack had to be somewhat ambient, and I simply found it by playing around with the sounds on a Roland JV1080 module - there were plenty of sounds which made me think... yes.... :)

Ah too bad, bloody fan projects dying too fast ! :P
I guess I'll have to do more Populous music myself. Which I can, since I know all your secrets now, muahahaha ! If only I didn't have this creative block...
Anyway, have fun with your next projects Mark !
