Pay for PAL scripts?
This is another website that popped up on my radar recently called “PALScripts” offering paid for PAL (Playlist Automation Language) scripts and an SQL repair service for SAM Broadcaster.
What’s wrong with that I hear you ask?
The problem is they are asking people to pay $$$ for PAL scripts that were once FREELY available from the Spacial Audio forums.
“When you sell a script that’s posted on the Spacial forums without giving credit where its due or even reaching out to the author of that script it seems somehow underhanded and shady”
They also offer to fix common SAM Broadcaster problems starting at $30 an hour. Which we seem to think is a bit expensive.
Especially when SAM Broadcaster is so unstable and badly coded.
It’s worth pointing out here that SAM Broadcaster is prone to crashing without warning and more so if a PAL script isn’t written properly.
A badly written PAL script can cause lots of memory leaks and also cause SAM Broadcaster to crash and burn…
Make the switch to RadioDJ FREE Radio Automation software.
RadioDJ doesn’t require any overpriced PAL scripts in order for the program to function.
The newer versions of RadioDJ have a feature called “Track(s) from SQL query”
Which seem a lot less complicated than learning how to get PAL scripts to work correctly.
“Money for old rope springs to mind with paid for PAL scripts”
