Crescendo : Java Glossary
I have left this tombstone entry for historical interest.
The Crescendo website, liveupdate.com, has disappeared. Crescendo was a plug-in for
midi and MP3 music files. There was a free version that waited until the entire file
was downloaded before starting to play and a pay version that started playing
immediately. There was also server software that let even the free players stream. I
gather they were made obsolete by faster connections and mp3.
