That’s funny Spacial as it only says this in the “Read me”

v2015.4 (15 September 2015)
* Fix erroneous “Request Disabled” message on request port.

 
They’ve fixed ONE thing that they cocked up on in 2015.3 and that’s IT! No new features or bug fixes (again!)

Why do people still pay out $$$ for subscriptions every year to Spacial Audio?

So much for the “Promises” they made in January 2015.

“This year we promise to continue to work hard and bring you some amazing features for your radio station”

 
When in reality they’ve done nothing with SAM Broadcaster again & spent more time doing a re-branded SAM Broadcaster Cloud.

SAM Broadcaster users need to vote with their wallets and stop paying Spacial Audio for SAM Broadcaster and associated products.

You’re only paying a development team to be lazy and do NOTHING!

Make the switch to the brilliant & reliable RadioDJ

RadioDJ Free radio automation download

RadioDJ FREE radio automation software is the future of radio automation.

Plus RadioDJ has new better features with every release.

Spacial Audio need to STOP the bullshitting and they also stop taking their customers for mugs.

SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 is it a Virus?

Q: “SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 is it a Virus?”

A: That would depend on where you downloaded the “sambc-up.exe” file from.

“If you’ve downloaded sambc-up.exe off some “dodgy” file sharing site or downloaded it as a torrent. There’s a good chance of it possibly containing viruses or other hidden malware”

SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 was the worst version of SAM Broadcaster that Spacial Audio released and is prone to crashing without warning anyway.

Without adding a crack/patched/warez malware laden version into the mix.

“If you want to DJ on the Internet and be LEGIT then you need to ditch that Warez/Pirated/Cracked copy of SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 and switch to Radio DJ instead”

 
RadioDJ is a FREE radio automation program that doesn’t require a crack/patch/key to unlock all the programs features.

RadioDJ will work far better than any pirated copy of SAM Broadcaster.

WHY bother with a pirated version of SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 anyway? It’s a truly horrendous version of the program that really isn’t worth cracking.

We guess it’s no surprise that SAM Broadcaster v4.2.2 is the most widely pirated version of SAM Broadcaster on the Internet.

A Fool and their money!

By now you are probably aware that I hate a program called SAM Broadcaster made by Spacial Audio.

SAM2Broadcaster

Let me explain a little as to why I hate it so much:

I discovered Internet radio back inĀ 1999/2000 time when I first started using the Internet. Although It was 2002 before I got chance to actually DJ on the Internet.

One of the stations I listened to was advertising for DJ’s so I signed up & ended up with regular weekly radio show.

I had to use SAM Broadcaster 2.7.9 (Streaming Audio Manager) to do my shows with.

Despite being talked through the setup of the program it was fiddly to setup for a computer novice like me. I’d never worked with MySQL up until that point either.

The program never worked as it should & more often than not it would crash or the encoders would buffer during a live show. The crashing & buffering issues actually lost me the DJ position on the radio station.

I put up with SAM Broadcaster and it’s little quirks for just over 8 years.

The final straw came on New Year’s Day 2011 when an error message similar to the one below popped up and SAM Broadcaster was only playing station jingles. Instead of playing music. It’s what’s known as a “Clockwheel” failure.

It wouldn’t play any songs yet the clockwheel rotation had more than enough songs/artists to choose from.

We had title separation set at 1440 minutes (24 Hours) and artist separation at 240 minutes. So that couldn’t have been the cause of the issue.

SAM Broadcaster just wouldn’t do what it was designed to do and that’s to stream/play music. Enough was enough!

We gave it up as a bad job & I was truly fed up to the back teeth with the software not working as it should!

 
Around late 2010 we discovered a piece of software called RadioDJ free radio automation software.

I decided to switch to it after the clockwheel failure in SAM Broadcaster.

We instantly liked the program & found it easy to use. It held up for a lot longer than SAM Broadcaster ever could. The record was around 4 weeks & the computer only needed a reboot due to Windows updates.

We now swear by RadioDJ as a radio automation program. RadioDJ has NEVER let us down & it’s always been there and worked everytime I’ve gone to work with it.

RadioDJ has taken all of the stress out of automating a music stream. It just works as an automation program should.

We doubt anyone will want to put up with SAM Broadcaster and its issues now RadioDJ can do the same job (Only Better!) for FREE.

Before you think about paying out $$$ for SAM Broadcaster have a look at RadioDJ. You may be pleasantly surprised by how good the free stuff works.

Remember a “Fool and their money” are easily parted!

Despite claims by Spacial Audio in their blog posts RadioDJ doesn’t come with any catches or nasty hidden fees, Its 100% FREE for use by any DJ or radio station in the world.
