- "Hypnotic Music of Settlers 2" (by apachenf, 13 Jan 2004) [10/10]
There is something about the Sng_0001 which goes on and on in my head - I actually find myself whistling the music. Thi is just the best game music I have ever heard and I have scoured the net just for th music alone - at last.
The relentless march of the music gels with the relentless march of the little characters as they plod across the screen. Genius, sheer genius.

I sent this music to someone, and they are now available through BitTorrent. Tracker is on TPB:
- "Actual Songs..." (by Redheat, 1 Oct 2006) [10/10]
Iv found over the years that some of the midi music in older games are based on songs. I have found one Song that is based on Song 14 (In settlers 2)
Richard Marks - Hazard
After listening to this song for the first time about a year ago i instatly related it to settlers 2 and it makes this song spectacular as it reminds me of the countless hours of playing settlers 2 (The best present i was EVER brougt)
I thought i found another song that has a melody from the settlers 2, though im not sure.
Kate Bush - The man with the child in his eyes
These two songs remind me of settlers 2 so much and i hope people will see the connection. Your feedback would be great (Might just be me) <-- :S

THe last name is marx by the way, my typo! :)
Hope you like the song if you do not see the connection :)
- "Great soundtrack, but werent there more?" (by physonic, 8 Sep 2007) [8/10]
I do love the music written by Haiko Ruttmann for Settlers 2. Its something that makes you think back to all the endless nights in front of the screen :)
Though, i do remember some other music that was on the actual settlers 2 gold cd-rom. Im not sure how to describe it, other than "monk-music" :) easy listening, and some chanting on, etc.
Can anyone confirm this, or if im wrong - maybe give me a hint where to get that specific music (maybe upload it if u have it)

> "Though, i do remember some other music that was on the actual settlers 2 gold cd-rom."
Yes, there were eight audio tracks on the CD. Some of them were just higher-quality versions of some of the 15 in-game midis, but others were unique.
I managed to rip the audio tracks from my Gold Edition CD-ROM with iTunes, so if you still have the CD you can get the music that way.
I wouldn't mind uploading them, but it's in mp3 and about 62 MB in total. :)

Facts / description
Comments from J7N:
The reason why I update the Settlers 2 music is that I saw it converted by Winamp's plugin from XMID. I've used this function many times and for some reason it doesn't write proper note-offs (along with other inaudible deffects). Notes remain on and turn music unlistenable. This effect wasn't strong on S2 but still present.
- Where the songs seemed designed for looping
a small repeat with fadeout was added.
- Ctrl 123 added at the end to allow
reverberated sound decay completely.
- Converted files to MIDI format 1 and
cleaned up of repeated controllers.
