Have you ever read through the EULA (End user licence agreement) when it comes to SAM Broadcaster?
Most people haven’t even bothered to read it.
We can’t help but notice how Spacial Audio Solutions make it difficult to use their software. You’d be pretty amazed/shocked at the restrictions Spacial Audio place on their software.
Especially with a normal copy of SAM Broadcaster Pro ($299)
Section 2e of the EULA states that SAM Broadcaster Pro may not be used to transport and stream any terrestrial radio broadcasts and/or communication.
Why does it have built in FM broadcasting capabilities via a PCI card? Which we’re informed is no longer being manufactured.
If you want to use SAM Broadcaster to broadcast over terrestrial AM/FM signals Spacial Audio will ask you to pay $699 for the Studio edition of the software.
That is a lot of money for a radio station owner to part with and there is no way that SAM Broadcaster Studio is worth that amount of money.
Its just the same bog standard SAM Broadcaster with the word STUDIO stuck on it instead of Pro.
Mind we guess that terrestrial stations tend to use software that costs thousands of $$$ not some overpriced hobby software.
Even as a normal user It would appear you can’t do much with a copy SAM Broadcaster Pro.
God forbid you should want to run more than 2 online stations at a time. Spacial Audio don’t like you doing that either!
If you want to run more than one station you will be asked to stump up money for separate licences, Running 3 stations with SAM would cost $897
There is a simple FREE solution to this. Use RadioDJ radio automation software instead.
Unlike other software RadioDJ isn’t constantly phoning home to check if its legitimate or activated.
Why bother shelling out $$$ for software that isn’t always guaranteed to work as advertised and could cause you all sorts of legal nightmares if you use it for something other than what it states in the EULA (End User Licence agreement)
Just more reasons why RadioDJ rocks compared to Spacial Audio software such as SAM Broadcaster Pro
