Sam Broadcaster (Lots Of Bugs?)

Recently read a post on a forum where someone was listing the radio software they had worked with over the years.

When it came to SAM Broadcaster he had this to say.

“I don’t care what anyone says there is so much evidence that this piece of software was never intended for radio it is buggy and crashes and has no place in a radio studio”

 
We’ve had SAM Broadcaster crash on us more than once while trying to run a radio stream.

Sam Broadcaster Clockwheel Failure

Just seen a post on the Spacial Audio forums from a user complaining that they’ve had a “SAM Broadcaster clockwheel failure”

“When a clockwheel failure happens in the program, SAM Broadcaster only plays station ID’s instead of playing music from the categories the user has specified within the clockwheel rotation setup”

 
This has been a huge problem with SAM Broadcaster ever since the early versions of the SAM Broadcaster 2.x.x series.

Why Is Sam Broadcaster Crashing?

Someone recently made a search “Why is my SAM Broadcaster crashing?”

We’ve also noticed these search terms pop up on our Google Analytics dashboard.

“SAM Broadcaster crashes on Windows 10”
“SAM Broadcaster crashing windows 7”
“SAM Broadcaster crashes after one song”
“SAM Broadcaster crashes without warning”
“SAM Broadcaster Pro keeps crashing after a few songs”
“SAM Broadcaster keeps freezing”
“SAM Broadcaster 2017.7 keeps crashing”

We often see people saying things like this about the lack of stability with SAM Broadcaster.

“We’re running SAM Broadcaster Pro on Windows 7, It often crashes and sometimes won’t restart after a computer reboot which means we have to reinstall the program from scratch”

 
As to why SAM Broadcaster crashes at random intervals is anyone’s guess…

Sam Broadcaster The Fisher Price Of Radio Automation?

I saw a tweet recently about SAM Broadcaster & I have to say it made me laugh out loud.

“SAM Broadcaster is the Fisher Price of radio automation and shouldn’t be used by anybody”

 
Personally I think that’s an insult to Fisher Price products at least their record player, radio & tape deck worked!
