Just seen this old bug pop up again on the SAM Broadcaster forums.
“SAM Broadcaster Racing Audio”
This is what some users of SAM had to say on the Spacial forums.
I have been having this problem using the latest SAM Broadcaster I have no idea what could be causing it. It just goes to double speed. Its really bad.
Your description sounds like what others describe as the double speed bug is that what it sounds like to you? If so, that is a known bug
Every release has had a problem, each one progressively worse. The latest release has a problem with the decks randomly going to “double speed” it has rendered the program useless for me
Lost my patience with SAM today, I’ve spent the whole day trying to solve the high speed sound bug
So I updated SAM to 2016 and decks A and B race through each song. Fix? They didn’t used to do that in the 2015 editions, What’s up with it?
Racing Audio with in SAM Broadcaster has been a problem within for over 18 years now.
The early versions of SAM Broadcaster 2/3 were well known for having a problem with audio speeding up for no apparent reason. It also happens occasionally with the encoders.
This is caused by a major bug in the software that causes songs to play faster than they should & there are no signs of the bug being fixed anytime soon.
There is a simple fix for this! Download and install RadioDJ free radio automation software.
One user had a copy of RadioDJ v1.8.2 running for over 24 months on a Laptop.
You could NEVER get that sort of stability from SAM Broadcaster in all its various guises.
How many more times do we have to say this?
Don’t Pay @Spacial Audio for SAM Broadcaster, You will only end up regretting making that purchase of their shoddy software when it goes wrong.
