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.
The SAM Broadcaster activation system never seems to work properly even when users deactivate the software before they reinstall the program.
It’s the one thing we see more complaints about apart from the software crashing or freezing.
“Did you ever see SAM complain about activation issues? I’ve had that problem myself once, SAM would complain on first run about an invalid license, but start nonetheless and never notify or leave a message in any of the logs again on the next runs, but would always shut down after 10 minutes or so without any warning”
Mind why people have to keep reinstalling a piece of radio software is beyond me…
I have never had these issues with RadioDJ and I really do mean NEVER!
Not had to reinstall RadioDJ in over a year now, The last time it was reinstalled was to update the version. A 2 minute job if that that to upgrade.
Save yourself the headaches of SAM Broadcaster and it’s activation issues and download RadioDJ instead.
RadioDJ is 100% FREE with no hidden catches/costs and doesn’t require online registration/activation.
Plus when RadioDJ is installed will perform like a star and because there’s no activation needed it won’t keep locking you out like SAM Broadcaster.
You will be able to do radio shows without having to worry about software “Activation Issues” stopping you in your tracks.
No more waiting for Spacial Audio support to get back to you with their usual “canned replies” and other unhelpful advice.
“Such obstacles to activation are one reason people turn to cracks or other means to bypass utterly infuriating malfunctioning/inefficient software licensing regimes”
Makes much more sense using a piece of software that doesn’t need activating all the time don’t you think?.
Please Note: Future versions may have paid for features but the free version will still be around.
