I’ve written a few posts on this blog pertaining to people looking for SAM Broadcaster keys/cracks/keygens etc…
When I wrote them I had no idea that those posts would take on a life of their own.
As far as I’m aware Spacial Audio don’t seem to think there’s a problem with people wanting pirated versions of their badly written software. Although they do put in several DMCA requests to Google every year.
RadioDJ will work better than any pirated/altered version of SAM Broadcaster.
“The Spacial Audio user zone is the ONLY place where you can download a FULL version of the software that can be unlocked via a registration key. DEMO versions of the software can not be unlocked, even if you have a valid key.”
If you see someone hawking pirated copies of SAM Broadcaster just give them a friendly reminder that what they are doing is Illegal!
Please Note: We haven’t installed any of the pirated SAM Broadcaster files/crack tools. The files were downloaded for research & inspection/virus/malware checks & have since been deleted from the computer.

We’ve noticed a rise in people offering & searching for illegal cracked versions of SAM Broadcaster.
Over the past couple of years 56,451 people have actively looked for a SAM Broadcaster patch/key/crack according to Google analytics!
“It seems people think it’s OK to have cracked/pirated versions of SAM Broadcaster”
No it isn’t OK in any way, shape or form.
SAM Broadcaster costs a lot of $$$ to subscribe to, Even when you do subscribe the software is leased to you… You still don’t own it outright.
Why bother with an illegal/cracked/warez copy of SAM Broadcaster anyway?
You won’t be able to crack/patch the newer versions of SAM Broadcaster no matter how hard you try. Spacial Audio have coded something into the newer versions of SAM, To stop it from being altered/cracked.
“Plus the Spacial Audio user zone is the ONLY place where you can download a FULL version of the software that can be unlocked via a registration key. DEMO versions of the software can not be unlocked, even if you have a valid key.”
By downloading cracked/pirated copies of software you are also opening your PC up to attacks from ransom-ware/malware or other evil nasty Trojans and viruses.
Most of the SAM Broadcaster patches we tested in the past had some really nasty malware in them.
You wouldn’t want someone holding your PC to ransom just because you’ve downloaded a cracked version of some really dodgy software now would you?
This search term appeared on my WordPress dashboard recently.
“Where can I download SAM Broadcaster for free? Without getting a virus?”
For starters there’s NO such thing as a FREE copy of SAM Broadcaster.
There never has been a free copy of SAM Broadcaster the program has always cost $299 upwards to lease*
(*Even when you’ve bought SAM Broadcaster from Spacial Audio you still don’t own the program)
“If you’ve downloaded a SAM Broadcaster crack/patch off a torrent/pirate site then you can almost guarantee it’s going to have been modified in some way and it will almost certainly contain malware/viruses in the patch/crack”
People DON’T need a warez/pirated/cracked version of SAM Broadcaster. They just need to download RadioDJ free radio automation software.
