Sam Broadcaster No1 Selling Radio Automation Program?

Spacial Audio have had something of a monopoly when it comes to Internet radio software.

Over the last 18 years or so people wanting to run an Internet radio station have generally only had 1 option and that was to pay $$$ for radio automation software.

SAM Broadcaster may well have been the No1 selling radio automation program.

Why I Hate Sam Broadcaster!

Q: Why do I dislike SAM Broadcaster?

SAM2Broadcaster

A: “I could never get through a radio show without something going wrong with the software”

Whether it be the program crashing/freezing or the encoders buffering on me.

It got tedious having to constantly reinstall/reconfigure the program after a crash. I thought at first it was a problem confined to my computer

How wrong I was!

Spacial Discontinue Sam Broadcaster Mac

So I’m doing my usual bits and pieces on the Internet this morning and I see this tweet.

SAM Broadcaster Mac Discontinued

It’s been less than 12 months since they released the “Crossover” version of SAM Broadcaster for Mac.

I predicted it was going to be an unmitigated disaster when I heard they’d ported over SAM Broadcaster (Windows) to the Mac using Crossover.

It would appear I was right again.
