Using Sam DJ To Mix With? Erm… No!

Spacial Audio have written another blog post about SAM DJ (Formerly SAM Party DJ)

They claim its great for mixing/beat matching with..?

“This might be great for a Bar or Restaurant to provide background music, but it’s clearly not suitable for doing live DJing”

Vst Plugin For RadioDJ V1.8.2 (Legacy)

A user of RadioDJ has written a plugin for RadioDJ which enables the use of VST plugins.

RadioDJ VST plugin

“I have tested this with several VST plugins, but it is advised to test each plugin”

 
There are some basic instructions on installing the Plugin into RadioDJ Here

If the download from the forum isn’t working try this Link

We hope you find this plugin useful.

This plugin will NOT work with RadioDJ v2.x.x

Hence why I’ve listed it as a v1.8.2 (Legacy) plugin there is no support for this or any other v1.8.2 plugins AFAIK.

Sam Broadcaster How Good Is It?

This was a question I saw among the stats on Google analytics.

A: It’s NOT a very good program & it’s certainly not worth the $299 Spacial Audio ask for it!

SAM can be tricky for a novice to setup it gets confusing having 4 different database options on first run. Firebird being the worst of the 4 options that is also flaky and unstable.
