As with most music software you would expect a smooth crossfade between songs wouldn’t you?
The transitions between songs so smooth even with songs that have sudden endings.
A user has posted on the feature request section of the Winamp forums asking the developers to include “Smart crossfading” in the next version.
“Smart crossfade analyses the playlist and determines if the songs are in increasing sequential track order from the same album. If they aren’t (like in most random mixes) user defined crossfading is used”
SAM Broadcaster Crossfade Problems
As hard as I tried over the years I could never get SAM Broadcaster to crossfade smoothly between songs.
This happened with every version of the software from 2.7.9 through to the newer versions. So it’s not just a problem confined to one version of SAM but every version of it.
Even the default settings would cut the end of a song off.
All my files were ripped properly and volume levelled so that wasn’t the issue.
I tried the settings that Festerhead suggested on the SAM broadcaster forums but that only made the issue worse.
This is not a problem I’ve encountered with RadioDJ.
We think Spacial Audio ripped off the SQR Crossfade plugin from Winamp and totally ruined it when they coded it into SAM.
Where as RadioDJ just seems to crossfade without cutting the ends of songs off. These are the crossfade settings I use with RadioDJ.
I don’t even have to use the silence remover settings with RadioDJ as it seems to transition between songs just fine with the above settings.
If you have been frustrated by the crossfade not working properly in SAM Broadcaster then I know exactly how you feel.
Make the switch to Radio DJ free radio automation software and all your crossfading nightmares will be over!< Remember you don't need to keep paying Spacial Audio money for a program that simply doesn't work.
