Why So Unfriendly?

Why So Unfriendly? That is the current question I am asking myself.

I’ve been a DJ for over 30 years now. I’ve never had an ego just a passion.

I’ve always just been ME and got on with the job in hand! Whether that was a Wedding, Birthday or even a Funeral…

I’ve always had issues with other DJ’s thinking they were better than me which really got on my nerves.

(Yes Jamie & Matt I mean you!)

Spacial Audio Magically Disappearing Posts

Spacial Audio Magically Disappearing Posts (Abracadabra)

Don’t bother complaining to Spacial Audio via their Facebook pages. It appears that who ever is in charge of managing the pages doesn’t know how to deal with complaints.

Sam Broadcaster Crossfade Problems

SAM Broadcaster Crossfade Problems

As hard as I tried over the years I could never get SAM Broadcaster to transition smoothly between songs.

I know personally that I prefer a standalone piece of encoding software as I could never get the built in encoders in certain pieces of software to stream properly (Lots of buffering messages)

Homophobia In Music

Homophobia in Music?

It seems recently there has been a lot in the news about pop stars singing homophobic lyrics in songs.

Apparently it’s rife within the rap music scene where it’s tolerated (sic) as part of a rap battle.

Is it right that there’s a perceived culture of Homophobia within certain sections of the music industry?

Hell NO!

When Sam Broadcaster Auto Updates Go Wrong!

When SAM Broadcaster Auto Updates Go Wrong!

I read a post on the Spacial forums today where a user had just downloaded the latest version of SAM Broadcaster because the program told him there was an update available.

The problem was this user was using SAM Broadcaster 2013 and the auto updater tried updating it to SAM Broadcaster 2014 for which the user didn’t have a valid key & inevitably it all went horribly wrong for him.

Zararadio Why Bother?

Zararadio: Why Bother?

This is another piece of radio software that I tried to use before I discovered the joys of RadioDJ

“I had to switch to another program, I was using Zararadio it would crash after 20hrs of use”

 
Zararadio was another piece of software I couldn’t get it to work properly. Even after reading the manual.
