My Microphone Does Not Work (Sam Broadcaster)

Anyone who has ever used SAM Broadcaster can attest to how awful the built in Voice FX feature can be when it doesn’t work as advertised.

“My microphone does not reliably work within SAM Broadcaster. Every time I turn the microphone on and off again in the Voice FX panel, it will not work again the next time and that clearly isn’t great for a broadcast”

I tried and failed on several occasions to get the Voice FX button to work in SAM when I first started using the software way back on v2.7.9

RadioDJ Track Rotations (AutoDJ Selector) v2.0.0.0

OK so Its more Envy than Jealousy I guess, I’m just happy I’ve finally found the most perfect piece of audio software.
