When it comes to Spacial Audio and their software it seems people struggle to get help from the support department when something goes wrong with it.
I’ve been into Internet radio for a long time now. In all those years I’ve learnt a lot of things about streaming on the Internet.
It’s been a fun thing to learn about. Other times it’s been hard work because software wasn’t doing the job it was designed for.
We don’t appear to have that problem with *RadioDJ FREE radio automation software.
We began using RadioDJ v188.8.131.52 about 5 and a half years ago now and that worked like a Trojan running our stream.
The newer versions of RadioDJ are far more powerful than 184.108.40.206 was.
RadioDJ just sits quietly in the background automating my local music stream. (Gave up running an online stream ages ago)
So if you’re looking for a stable & reliable DJ program for use on Internet radio then RadioDJ is what you need.
(Click on the logo to download RadioDJ or right click and “Save Link As” to download it to your PC)
Once you get past the Installation of RadioDJ the program just runs and runs without the need for a restart.
Usually the only reason RadioDJ needs a restart is because of Windows updates.
We’ve tried nearly all the available software for Internet radio and nothing comes close to RadioDJ.
Stability? RadioDJ has that in “Spades” – Try it for yourself today, It’s 100% FREE so you have nothing to lose by trying it…
*RadioDJ free radio automation really is FREE (NOT Misleading)
As you probably know by now I swear by RadioDJ free radio automation software.
Although while it’s primarily built for use in a radio studio, You don’t have to be a Radio DJ to use the program.
It also works great for automating your music collection at home.
We currently use it for automating music in & around the flat.
With the built in request system it could also be used as a solution for Jukebox in a pub/bar.
If you’ve converted your CD’s to mp3/FLAC or other supported formats and you’re looking for a program that is easy to manage and great at automating your music collection then RadioDJ is the program you need.
It’s not really that difficult to get RadioDJ up and running.
You just need to follow some Basic Instructions and have a bit of patience.
Once you have RadioDJ installed and working you can then start importing music into the program.
From the options menu you will probably need to go into “Categories” to edit the categories you want your music to appear in.
Once you’ve sorted out categories and imported the music.
Then you will need to setup custom rotations.
After you’ve done that and the music is playing away nicely then the job is almost done.
When you create a rotation in Option>Tracks Rotation you have the option to save it into the database. Give it a memorable name.
If you want different styles of music at different times of day then you would use events to load the track rotation of your choice at a set time.
Events can be found by clicking on the “big bar” at the bottom of RadioDJ or via Option>Events
Once you have all that sorted you can keep playing with rotations and playlists until you have your music collection fully automated.
Once you get used to what RadioDJ can do you’ll love just how easy it is to use.
Who knows you might end up wanting to become a Radio DJ yourself?
RadioDJ is a free radio studio automation program for use by any DJ or radio station.
You can even run multiple Shoutcast/Icecast radio stations if you want using third party virtual audio cables (VACS).
It can also be used as a home entertainment system for music. (Which is what we currently use it for)
Yes! It’s 100% Free with no nasty hidden fees or catches despite what certain software/hosting companies try claim in their blog posts. No keys, activation or patches needed to work the full program.
Yes RadioDJ works rather well on Windows 10 with very few issues. Unlike other radio automation programs that have “compatibility” issues.
It’s always nice seeing other people switching from SAM Broadcaster to RadioDJ free radio automation software.
If you haven’t discovered RadioDJ yet what are you waiting for?
RadioDJ works much better than SAM Broadcaster and doesn’t seem to crash or go wrong that often.
We know of several users of RadioDJ who haven’t had to restart their computer or laptop for around 7 months, It’s an extremely stable & reliable automation program.
The best bit about RadioDJ is the fact it’s 100% FREE (No catches, No hidden costs, No messy reg keys)
Other users have had this to say about the software about the software.
“My RadioDJ system is sounding so good! What a fantastic piece of software and community support. Thanks everyone”
“Things I like about RadioDJ are stability, flexibility, community and NO BUFFERING! Listening trend is up 71% since migrating to RadioDJ! Stability breeds consistency”
“RadioDJ has got to be the best playout system I have found online, quite simply – IT WORKS! It sounds extremely professional once you set it up and get your music added”
“I love the way the program is laid out and how professional it looks. It took some time to install and get used to but that’s where the Community forums come to your rescue if you get stuck with Installing and using the program”

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.
