SAM Broadcaster for the Mac has now been Scrapped/discontinued by Spacial Audio!
Spacial are in the process of rolling out SAM Broadcaster for the Mac.
All they seem to have done is ported the Windows version to Mac using another program called “Crossover”
“With the increasing no of requests for a Mac version, The quickest way was porting the Windows version with Crossover”
Correct me if I’m wrong but don’t Mac users usually want software that is native to the Mac?
If users wanted to they could have quite easily done this themselves by using Virtualbox to run SAM on Windows.
What could possibly go wrong with the Windows version being ported over?
SAM Broadcaster is dodgy enough and prone to crashing on Windows without porting it over. Add possible new & existing bugs into the mix and BOOM!.
I’m just hoping that they’ve tested it to destruction.
Because if they haven’t and customers start having major issues with the program it will only make Spacial even more of a “laughing stock”
If you’ve already purchased the crossover Mac version of SAM Broadcaster “Good Luck” because you will need it!
Don’t bank on getting much support when things do eventually go wrong. I can see this being complete and unmitigated disaster for Spacial Audio.
By using crossover to port SAM over to the Mac they will have no doubt alienated most of the Mac crowd anyway.
