When you pay out hundreds of $$$ for radio automation software or cloud based automation solutions you would expect them to work without issues while doing a live show wouldn’t you?Unfortunately that isn’t the case with SAM Broadcaster…
We share this users frustrations especially on the buffering front. SAM Broadcaster still appears to suffer with the dreaded buffering issues it had over 10 years ago.
Since Spacial Audio launched SAM Broadcaster cloud we’ve heard nothing but bad press about the service on social media. We often see users complaining they struggle to get connected to the cloud or it buffers all the time when they do finally get connected.
As it stands right now we think SAM Broadcaster Cloud is nowhere near ready for use in a professional production environment.
Unfortunately that’s one of the big drawbacks with cloud based solutions…
IF something goes badly wrong on the server hosting the cloud solution, You have zero control over what happens and you end up with a dead stream, Which in turn costs you listeners.
Would you want constant buffering or frequent outages while trying to do a live show?
If you’re thinking of subscribing to Spacial Audio cloud based services. Don’t bother It really doesn’t live up to the hype!
The customer service isn’t much better!
