How to Detach Your Cresendo Player

     Have you ever wondered how you can have Crescendo continue to play music while you surf? Well, it's easier than you might have thought. Beginning with version 3.0, Crescendo has included a "detach" feature for that very purpose. When you click on a simple link to a MIDI file, Crescendo will automatically detach into a separate window and float above the page. Even when Crescendo is embedded in a page, it's easy to manually detach the player and allow that song to continue with you as you surf. Just right-click on the Crescendo control panel, select "Detach" in the pop-down menu, and Crescendo will detach and continue playing even after you leave the page with the embedded music. If you haven't upgraded to version 3.0 yet, get it at
