Got my hands on a copy of SAM Broadcaster 2015.1 this morning despite Spacial trying to obfuscate the download links.
The changes list reads like this:
v2015.1 (1 June 2015)
* M4A support added.
* Check SAM Broadcaster edition and warn if overwriting a different edition
* Warn/disable when there is no support for WMA

Going through Shoutcast and tuning into a few random radio stations.
Some of them were quite good and sounded brilliant. Some of them however did not.
Digging a bit deeper and looking on their shoutcast DNAS server pages the reason for the poor audio quality on some of the stations was immediately clear.

I visit the Spacial Audio forums and Facebook pages every few days just to see what the latest complaints from users are.
It seems several users have had issues activating SAM Broadcaster & in some cases this has meant the DJ missing their regular radio show.
“The activation system is a huge black box from a third party called Oceans Software and not much is known about the ways it works and detects licensing issues”
Activation issues should never happen with radio automation software, A DJ needs the software they are using to do their job.
