I checked my Twitter account over the weekend and saw a tweet asking this:
OK so why the hell would I have a key for SAM Broadcaster Pro? I cannot stand that piece of software.
Are you one of those people on the internet looking for a SAM Broadcaster Product Activation Key?
We find it truly staggering just how many people look for cracked copies of SAM Broadcaster
Not a day goes by without us seeing someone somewhere searching on Google Analytics for pirated/cracked versions of Spacial Audio software.
Fired up the PC this morning and looked at user searches on my admin pages and I saw this…
It sounds to us like this person has downloaded & installed a dodgy patched copy of SAM Broadcaster off some torrent/pirate site which installed some malware on his system & is now interfering with the smooth running of other software such as RadioDJ.
If this user downloaded SAM Broadcaster from some random pirate/torrent/cracked/warez software site, then the patches used to crack the software are bound to contain nasty Trojans/Malware.
We can guarantee you 100% there’s no way this user has downloaded a dodgy copy of RadioDJ. There are no viruses or malware in RadioDJ…
Marius the author of RadioDJ wouldn’t program something like that into the software.
(Although he does try to protect his code which can sometime throw a false/positive result up from some antivirus software solutions)
Why bother with pirated copies of SAM Broadcaster in the first place? When there is a better FREE alternative.
RadioDJ FREE radio automation software doesn’t require any keys/patches/cracks in order to work the full program.
There are no nasty hidden fees or catches just a fully fledged radio automation program that knocks spots of SAM Broadcaster.
(Click on logo to download RadioDJ or right click and “Save Link As”)
What this user needs to do is reinstall his copy of Windows and install RadioDJ instead of this dodgy copy of SAM Broadcaster.
Stop using pirated software it’s NOT big and it’s certainly NOT clever and it will only cause you grief when you get some nasty Trojan crashing your system.
Mind it sounds like it’s probably too late for this user if a virus is already causing him grief it’s probably already stolen his details/passwords etc…
This search query popped up recently on my dashboard under user searches.
A: You don’t need to crack SAM Broadcaster!
Step away from those torrent/pirate software sites and just download RadioDJ for FREE! (Yes really)
RadioDJ doesn’t require a patch/key/crack to unlock the benefits of the full program.
There are NO hidden fees or nasty contracts/subscriptions with RadioDJ,
Just music/radio automation software that works fantastically well once setup and installed

A cracked/altered/patched copy of SAM Broadcaster will only crash & burn on you & the older 4.x.x versions of SAM Broadcaster won’t work on Windows 10 (No matter how hard you try to install them)
Most of the cracks/patches we’ve seen for SAM Broadcaster on the Internet had variable amounts of Trojans/Viruses/Malware in the files.
Yes I know this sounds like another “repetitive” blog post on the subject of cracked/pirated copies of SAM Broadcaster.
I guess it doesn’t matter how matter how many posts I write on the subject, There are always going to be people who want to try and “Crack SAM Broadcaster”
We don’t know about anyone else but we’re still not quite sure as what the attraction is with SAM Broadcaster being PIRATED
(Maybe people can’t afford the $299 it costs to buy it?)
Looking for cracked copies of software such as SAM Broadcaster only makes you look like a complete amateur in the world of Internet radio.
It further confirms OUR theory that there are a lot of desperate IDIOTS (Lets not mince words) out there looking for pirated copies of SAM Broadcaster.
Cracking Software Gromit!
You have to wonder what software authors can do against a tide of cracked versions of their software.
It’s a particularly noticeable problem with radio automation software.
After doing a quick search on a newsgroup search engine the results looked like this.
50+ results for DJ Soft’s Radiocaster.
134+ results for DJ Soft’s RadioBoss.
725+ results for SAM Broadcaster.
I took a screenshot so you can see what I’m on about.
That’s without needing to do a search on Google or other search engines!
We guess while there is still software out there that requires a registration key there are always going to be people trying to crack those pieces of software.
Even if the cracks don’t work these idiots will still have a go.
There is NO need for them to download cracked/pirated software.
RadioDJ actually works better than some of the paid for software such as SAM Broadcaster and RadioBoss.
Plus most of the SAM Broadcaster crack patches on offer on the Internet won’t work on Windows 10 no matter how hard you try.
Spacial Audio have now coded something into SAM Broadcaster to stop it being patched/cracked/altered.
We’re still waiting on a response from the author of RadioBoss & Radiocaster to see what he has to say about people using his software illegally.
(Alas Still no reply from DJ Soft nearly a year after this article was originally written)
You’d have thought he would have at least had the decency to reply?
I know Spacial Audio put in several DMCA notices every year to try and stem the tide of cracked copies of their software.
It seems Spacial Audio genuinely thought the posts on this website about cracked/pirated copies of SAM Broadcaster were offering people links to illegal downloads of the program.

Stop using pirated software… No one likes a software pirate!
