As the topic of the post suggests its not just SAM Broadcaster that suffers with stability problems, other Spacial Audio software suffers from the same problem especially SAM DJ (Formerly SAM Party DJ)
Some one posted this on Facebook
“I bought Sam DJ today and it keeps crashing after about 15 minutes. Can anyone tell me why. I’m on my laptop with Windows 10”
I tried SAM Party DJ way back in 2006 time and yes it was as annoying as SAM Broadcaster it was never reliable enough to run a party night with.
It once ruined someone’s birthday party when it crashed on my laptop while I was doing DJ work in a pub.
SAM DJ is really only a stripped down version of SAM Broadcaster when all is said and done and there are also lots of stability problems with that piece of software.
“I bought SAM Party DJ and I have had it for a while now but I am not happy at all with the way it locks up on song change. EXAMPLE, I put a song in the deck, it locks up for nearly 20 secs with DEAD AIR, on full AutoDJ it does not seem to affect the flow of sound but when you try to lets say, song ends, play and liner, then song, you might as well forget it, as soon as the liner plays, it will lock, complete the liner, have dead silence for nearly 20 secs then launch the next song.. WHY? is there a way around this?”
One day Spacial Audio might (I said Might) get round to releasing software that doesn’t crash every 10-15 minutes as was the case for the user I quoted from Facebook.
It really beggars belief that people are still paying $$$ to Spacial Audio for their crap software…
Anyone who fancies being a DJ could do worse than try RadioDJ, A free music automation system that works far better than any of Spacial Audio’s automation offerings.
You have nothing to lose by trying it what’s the worst that could happen?
If I was still doing DJ work in pubs and clubs I’d be using RadioDJ to DJ with as it crossfades amazingly well something else that SAM DJ struggles to do.
