Frequently Asked Questions
How do I listen to music clips on the Sequoia Records website?
Each album or audio program has sound clips available for each track so you can preview the selection. The audio samples are listed by song or program title, on the product page for each album, just below the description of the album.
To listen, click on the small arrow button to the left of each track name. The arrow in the button will change to a "pause" symbol while the track plays through your computer"s speakers. Use your computer's main volume control to adjust the playback level. To pause the sound, click the same button again.
To listen to a different selection, pause the current track first before starting the next one, so they don't both play at the same time. The music player requires Adobe's Flash Player plug-in. You can get the plugin and easy installation instructions for no charge at Adobe's Flash Player free download page. If you do not have the most recent version, version 8 or later can be used.
