You’re Just Making Stuff Up?

We’ve been accused of “Making up the problems about SAM Broadcaster”

Nope not lying or making anything up, things really are as bad as they seem with SAM Broadcaster

The problems documented on this website are just a few of the reasons as to why we think the software isn’t worth the $$$ Spacial Audio charge for it.

RadioDJ is Dodgy?

When we see someone on social media having an issue with SAM Broadcaster we try and let them know there’s a better free alternative.

Yesterday we suggested RadioDJ to someone on Twitter and they came back with…

“Oh but I’ve heard RadioDJ is dodgy?”

 
Where people are getting the idea RadioDJ is “dodgy” from we don’t know.

We know of a few blogs posts from other software/hosting companies who try to make out RadioDJ is inferior because of the fact it’s free.

Those blog posts are just a pack of lies!

I’ve Never Been So Mad…

Went to look at Spacial Audio’s page on Twitter this morning and noticed this in amongst Spacial’s twitter feed.

 

As you can see from this tweet this guy isn’t happy with the lack of help from Spacial Audio support. When will people learn?

“After you buy software from Spacial Audio you will NOT get the help & support that you need when their software goes wrong.

 
SAM Broadcaster tends to crash and freeze pretty often it’s never been a stable program.

Not a week passes without me seeing someone struggling to do a live radio show because SAM Broadcaster wasn’t working.

There is NEVER an excuse for fobbing off or even lying to a customer wanting help after they’ve paid you for a service/program.

Bad Customer service

If Spacial were a UK company someone would have taken them to trading standards or even a consumer program such as watchdog.

I’ve been accused of lying about Spacial Audio and their shockingly bad customer service & apparently I also lie about SAM Broadcaster and it’s many problems.

“NOPE not lying! The posts on this blog are written truthfully about SAM Broadcaster and its associated problems. The program just isn’t worth the $299 Spacial Audio charge for it

 

If you’re a DJ or radio station owner and you’re looking for a radio automation program forget paying $$$ to Spacial for SAM Broadcaster.

The smart DJ’s and radio station owners are switching to RadioDJ free radio automation software.

RadioDJ free radio automation software.

RadioDJ won’t crash on you like SAM Broadcaster and has far better support via the community ran forums.

There are NO hidden fees or catches with RadioDJ despite what Spacial Audio might try and make out.

People really need to STOP buying software from Spacial.

SAM Broadcaster really is as badly programmed as the posts on this blog make out..

If Spacial Audio carry on treating their customers badly or keep treating support tickets like confetti soon they won’t have any customers left to support…

Reinstalling SAM Broadcaster

Saw a tweet from a SAM Broadcaster user having to reinstall the program after it had gone wrong on him and wouldn’t restart after a reboot of the PC.

“In the process of reinstalling SAM Broadcaster it completely refuses to load even after system reboot”

 
We know how this user feels it’s happened to us on many occasions over the years. SAM Broadcaster goes wrong and crashes for no reason even in the newer versions.

SAM-Broadcasterstopped working

It’s frustrating when SAM Broadcaster crashes during a live show and then won’t restart after a reboot of the PC and you have to faff around reinstalling the program and database from scratch.

We’ve yet to hear of anyone having an issue with RadioDJ randomly crashing on them and not restarting after a computer reboot.

RadioDJ free radio automation software

The MySQL database in RadioDJ is far more solid and robust than the SQL/Firebird databases in SAM.

Plus RadioDJ has an amazing database backup tool that backs up your SQL database at a set time each day.

In the unlikely event of the RadioDJ database going wrong due to a power outage it’s easily fixed using HeidiSQL

Saving your RadioDJ configuration settings is also easy you just backup the RadioDJ program folder to another location (USB Drive/External Drive) after you have all your settings the way you want them.

Heidi-SQL

It’s rare for RadioDJ to actually crash or go wrong.

We can honestly say hand on heart that we’ve never had RadioDJ crash on us while recording a show/mix or even during a live show in the 5+ years since we discovered the program.

The smart DJ’s and radio station owners are now starting to steer away from using SAM Broadcaster.

How to Crack SAM Broadcaster?

This search query popped up recently on my dashboard under user searches.

“How to Crack SAM Broadcaster”?
 
SAM Broadcaster

A: You don’t need to crack SAM Broadcaster! You will never be able to fully crack or alter a DEMO version of SAM Broadcaster!

The Spacial Audio Wiki says this:

“The 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.”

 
So 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

RadioDJ free radio automation software

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.

Malware spy

A Trojan/Malware or a Virus is the last thing you would want or need on your system as it could be stealing passwords for sites you use and also be mining bank/card/login details.

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”

“Stop trying to crack software you have no hope of being able to alter”

 
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.

Soundcloud & a Few Other Niggles.

Just need to clear up a couple of things…

Firstly: Someone has uploaded a mix to Soundcloud using DJ Garybaldy as the name of DJ who remixed the track.

NOTHING TO DO WITH ME!!!

That remix is NOTHING to do with me.

I do mixes but I sure as shit don’t try remixing stuff that’s never been my bag.

I’m guessing it’s some kid in a bedroom somewhere calling himself by the same name.

“I’ve never had a Soundcloud account and have no intention of signing up for one anytime soon”

 
I’m also aware of another UK DJ calling himself DJ Garybaldi that’s NOT me either he’s a DJ from London!

I do how ever have genuine mixes done by me on Mixcloud.

Which can be found on my Mixes page

Secondly: Not every BAD radio software review or post is done by me…

Bad software review

If I think a piece of radio automation software is a PILE OF PANTS! Then I will tell people via this BLOG!

I certainly wouldn’t be posting it on a forum that’s why this BLOG was setup because I wasn’t allowed FREE SPEECH about a certain piece of software.

So next time get your FACTS straight!

” Not every bad radio automation software review is done by me. I don’t need to review any other software again as RadioDJ is just the perfect program and always will be”

 
Thirdly: You can block me all you like on Social media… (Looks at Spacial Audio)

Click to enlarge

I can still see the lies & spin by looking at your Twitter profile from another browser/account.

I realise you don’t like me because of my dislike and posts about your badly coded software.

If SAM Broadcaster had been coded properly in the first place. Maybe I wouldn’t be letting people know just how shoddy your products are Spacial Audio.

Last time I looked it was called an OPINION. But of course you don’t believe in FREE speech do you Spacial?

“The second someone dares to criticise you or your software on Social Media you remove their posts and block them.

Not a very professional way of dealing with people who may be spending hundreds of $$$ with you”

 
Spacial need to start to listening to their customers & they also need to stop lying to their customers otherwise they’ll not win any respect.

Last fuck given.

I’ve long stopped caring what the TROLLS and naysayers in the world of Internet radio think about me…

“I’m getting far more “Thank You’s” for certain blog posts than I am abuse these days so I must be doing something right somewhere!

 
N.B: Remember other blogs are also available…Feel free to read one of them if you don’t like what’s written on mine!

RadioDJ Keeps Breaking…

Just seen a post on the RadioDJ forums from a long time user of the program complaining that the program keeps breaking on him.

“My install(s) of RadioDJ have been breaking. I have had to reinstall and redo all of the install(s) over the past 2 weeks. My track rotations seem to burp and ignore the music and just play VT’s or Sweepers. I am not sure what the heck is going on but it is becoming a pain in the rump. I am wondering if it is my SQL?”

 
He then goes to on to state that he’s never ran RadioDJ as “Administrator”

“Never have had to start it as an admin ever. That is something Marius has never stated here to do.”

 
We think you will find that Marius tells EVERYONE to run RadioDJ with full “Administrator” privileges. Its not a RadioDJ problem its a Windows security rule.

Being a long term user of RadioDJ you’d have thought he would have already known this?

You need to run the program as administrator for it work properly otherwise it’s going to cause you “issues” somewhere along the line.

It’s simple enough to mark the RadioDJ.exe with administrator privileges.

Run RadioDJ as administrator

TIP: Right Click on the RadioDJ.exe file go to Properties>Shortcut>Advanced>Tick the box that says “Run as Administrator”>Apply>OK & close

 
That way RadioDJ will always run as administrator when you start the program.

The original problem may indeed lie with the fact this user wasn’t running the program as advised.

PEBKAC (Problem Exists between keyboard and chair)

We’ve always ran RadioDJ as advised and we rarely have any of the “issues” this user has described. I also suspect that the version of MySQL this user is using maybe the root cause of some of their problems as well.

It might be time to upgrade your SQL server to MariaDB?

We’ve had MariaDB installed for over a year now and it’s rare for us to have a problem with our database server.

If you’re not willing to take simple advice like this onboard then you really must have a small amount of knowledge about computers full stop.

“If you don’t have the option to run a program in administrator mode then you may need to ask an IT specialist or even your parents for advice.

 
Running RadioDJ as administrator isn’t exactly rocket science now is it?

Start Your Internet Radio Station with RadioDJ

Q: Have you ever wanted to start your own online Internet radio station?

 
Internet radio can be a really great hobby to have, Once you get used to how everything works it’s great fun. It can be daunting at first but don’t be afraid of searching Google or radio forums for tips and advice.

Most people think setting up an online Internet radio station will cost them lots of $$$.

It need not cost you anything to initially setup your own online radio station. (Not misleading!)

Yes you heard that right! You can start your Internet radio station for FREE with RadioDJ (Yes it’s really FREE)

You will need a decent PC with minimum of 1GB RAM and a decent broadband connection in order to stream successfully.

RadioDJ free radio automation software

RadioDJ is a fully fledged radio studio automation package which once installed and configured works rather well at automating music/jingles/promos, Which of course is what the program was designed to do.

RadioDJ can be left alone for long periods of time to do what it does best.

Follow this link to a easy to follow tutorial on How to setup RadioDJ

You can find some other handy radio software downloads on this page

If you have any issues setting RadioDJ up you can find help on the Community Forums

After you’ve installed RadioDJ you will then need a Shoutcast or Icecast server to stream to.

Shoutcast DNAS server page

You can find some FREE shoutcast/icecast hosting by searching Google for “Free Streaming servers”

Alternatively you can pay a Shoutcast/icecast host for a server from around $2/3 a month. Do your research on Google and steer clear of hosts who offer “Unlimited Listeners”

“There is NO such thing as unlimited listener slots! All servers max out their bandwidth/processing power eventually”

 
Make your station unique! Stand out from the crowd and who knows eventually you could have a successful online Internet radio station.

Tip: Be patient don’t expect to learn everything within 5 minutes, Like every hobby it will take time to get used to what does what.
