Don’t be a Turd!!!

I look at the SAM Broadcaster feed on Twitter most days to try and see if anyone is still offering illegal cracked copies of the software.

This morning someone shared a link to a video on Youtube with a link to a cracked copy of SAM 4.2.2

“What got my back up was when I pulled the person up about the fact they were hawking cracked copies of SAM Broadcaster. They seemed to think what they were doing was legitimate and above board”

 
Erm NO you complete and utter TURD! Hawking illegal copies of paid for software such as SAM Broadcaster isn’t cool or right.

It’s merely still a drop in the ocean though.

“In the last 90 days 4,576 visitors to my blog have actively been looking at the posts to do with SAM Broadcaster keys/cracks.

 
Spacial Audio we think you might have a slight problem with people pirating your software!

If you think it’s cool to offer or supply downloads of a SAM Broadcaster Crack then you really are an Amateur and shouldn’t be doing Internet radio.

STOP Don’t Be a TURD!!! Just download RadioDJ instead.

RadioDJ Free radio automation download
Download

RadioDJ is a FREE radio automation program that doesn’t require any keys/patches/cracks in order to work the program.

It will work far better than any pirated copy of SAM Broadcaster you found just lying around on the Internet!

It’s Just Laziness

When you pay a subscription for a piece of software you would at least expect an update once a month or so.

Sadly this is not the case with Spacial Audio.

I know they are taking peoples money for 2015 subscriptions but they have yet to deliver a version of SAM Broadcaster in 2015.

I’m also acutely aware that Spacial have started beta testing a Mac version of SAM Broadcaster.

But so far in 2015 they appear to all intents and purpose appear to be ignoring their windows users.

It’s just laziness on the part of the developers of the software.

Stop paying for a yearly subscription for SAM Broadcaster & start using RadioDJ free radio automation software.

At least RadioDJ is developed by someone who gives a damn about the software and it’s users. There are regular updates for RadioDJ

Spacial Audio really need to drop the lazy attitude and start giving customers what they want.

BUT WE WON’T HOLD OUR BREATH ON THAT ONE!

Using Winamp To DJ With?

Using Winamp To DJ With?

Just seen a topic pop up on the Winamp forums where someone said they were using Winamp to DJ.

Another user replied with:

“Real DJs don’t use Winamp to DJ it doesn’t crossfade properly”

 
Indeed DJ’s don’t use Winamp to produce mixes or radio shows. We use other software that is built for the job.

I haven’t used Winamp to stream a radio station with in over 10 years. Winamp is a media player for listening to a shoutcast stream.

While Winamp may have been a starting point for anyone who wanted to DJ years ago, There is far better software than Winamp to DJ with.

1) Mixxx

Mixxx

2) Virtual DJ

virtual-dj-pro

3) RadioDJ

RadioDJ free radio automation software

4) Traktor

traktor-dj-studio_5

Those are just a few of the programs available to DJ with. You can find others by searching Google.

“Anyone who is serious about DJ work these days wouldn’t even touch Winamp”

 
If you use Winamp to DJ with then you’ll end up sounding like an amateur who doesn’t know what he’s doing.

Simply Wonderful

I probably don’t praise the developer of RadioDJ enough.

The software has come on leaps and bounds this past year of two. It’s just simply wonderful to have a piece of software that does what it’s supposed to.

Even when i had a small problem with one of the RC releases Marius came to my aid and did a remote support session.

How many software developers do you know that would do that. Without charging you for the pleasure?

I know for a fact that Spacial audio would charge you through the nose for a remote support session with SAM Broadcaster.

I think it’s something like $30 an hour.

Just to be able to have a stress free experience with a piece of software is bliss!

I lost count how many times I swore at SAM broadcaster over the years because it wouldn’t work properly.

If RadioDJ had been around 10 years ago I’d probably would have had a successful radio station by now.

Instead I spent just shy of 8 years getting frustrated with software.

Marius you rock!! Thanks for such brilliant software!

RadioDJ Tutorial (Basic)

RadioDJ Tutorial a handy guide to using Radio DJ free automation software.

One of the users over on the RadioDJ forum took time out to do a basic tutorial for the latest version of the software. Many thanks for this Jhonny I’m sure it will help a lot of people.

A download of the tutorial can be found Here

Just unzip and open the tutorial with a suitable PDF reading program such as Adobe.

Of course this is just a basic guide which covers the basics of RadioDJ.

If you get stuck with something don’t forget the RadioDJ support forum is there to help.

Winamp Goes for A Song!

I have previously written about Radionomy taking over Winamp. Now the news is official Radionomy do now indeed own Winamp and Shoutcast.

Link to article

The deal is thought to be worth between $5 million and $10 million, with AOL taking a 12% stake of Radionomy in the process. When you consider AOL initially paid around $80 million for Winamp in the first place. Radionomy seem to have got themselves a bargain with this purchase.

The offical blurb from Radionomy is Here

What does this mean for the future of both Winamp and Shoutcast? I guess we will have to wait and see. If they decide to start sticking adverts into peoples shoutcast streams It will only mean more people using icecast.

Beware Spacial Audio!

Just been for my daily snoop on the Spacial audio forums and yet again it doesn’t make for good reading.

“I had sent an email to Spacial Audio tech support last week to ask about rolling back to version 4.x.x if for some reason I had a problem with v2014.1 and their reply was: “once (sic) you converted to 2014 you cant rollback to version 4.x.x

 
This user has already paid for version 4.x.x and is now being told by Spacial Audio support that he cannot use a version of SAM Broadcaster he paid for in the event of him wanting to switch back.

Not only is this bad customer service it is also “dishonest” IMHO!

I wouldn’t mind so much but this comes just a few weeks after Spacial promised to start giving better support.

Goes to show they haven’t changed.

I’ve just come across this comment on Facebook. This guy doesn’t sound to happy.

My message as always:

“Beware Spacial Audio! It seems they don’t give a damn about their customer base and only want you for the $$$ you part with. They have a nasty habit of telling LIES just to sell their shoddy software. Do NOT buy software from Spacial Audio you will regret it”

 
Instead why not use something like RadioDJ free radio automation software.

RadioDJ Free radio automation download

It’s FREE between updates doesn’t require keys or activations in order to work the program.

We’ve used RadioDJ for over 5 years now and couldn’t be happier with the stability and reliability of the software.

Something else that cannot be said for SAM Broadcaster.

You won’t regret it and you’ll have money to spend on other studio essentials.

Praise Indeed!

I absolutley love the users of the RadioDJ forums, But I love those who have come from using SAM broadcaster even more!

Isn’t it nice when someone says this??

As you can see from the above picture this user in particular has really nailed it on the head about RadioDJ. A friendly and helpful forum and people willing to help each other isn’t something that can be said for certain other software forums.

If you haven’t made the switch from SAM broadcaster to RadioDJ yet.

What are you waiting for? You’ll be a lot happier in the long run.
