While doing my usual bits n pieces recently on Twitter, I came across tweets from a couple of SAM Broadcaster users who had to cancel their live shows because SAM Broadcaster wasn’t working.
“Sorry but I cant run my show today because my SAM Broadcaster is not working I have to get it fixed”
Then there’s this
“Sorry I can’t do my show SAM Broadcaster crashed, there’s no way I’ll get this fixed in time, SAM just won’t cooperate”
“We’ve had a problem with our SAM Broadcaster for over a week now. It’s still not resolved. We’ve missed several shows now”
“No one should ever miss doing a radio show because software malfunctions on them!”
Sadly these aren’t the only users who have had nightmares getting SAM Broadcaster to work. These things should never happen with radio automation software.
“My SAM has crashed and I’ve restarted the program. All works fine but after XX minutes (random 5 or 10) SAM shuts down without any problem in the log file”
Forget SAM Broadcaster with it’s compatibility and stability issues just make the switch to RadioDJ
“SAM locked up on me after about a week twice. I blame that on the PAL’s I am running, about 15 running all the time and the SAM memory usage grows pretty consistently up to about 200MB, then locks up (even though I have 16GB RAM on the SAM computer)”
Yes you’re quite right SAM shouldn’t be locking up on a machine with 16GB of RAM again it shows how badly coded SAM Broadcaster and its PAL scripts feature is.
Once you have RadioDJ Installed and working you should (hopefully) never miss doing a radio show again.
We’ve used RadioDJ since January 2011 and it’s NEVER let us down during a live show or even when it’s been left to automate backup music streams for other radio stations.
“RadioDJ works like a charm once installed, It’s pretty stable & reliable compared to SAM Broadcaster, Thanks for such a great program Marius!”
RadioDJ has also been tested to destruction on Windows 10 and it seems to handle everything that’s been thrown at it.
Q: Why do radio station owners and DJ’s still pay $$$ for SAM Broadcaster from Spacial Audio?
A: We wish we knew the answer to that conundrum!
P.S: Despite Spacial Audio’s claims about FREE software RadioDJ has no catches or nasty hidden fees, just 100% FREE software for anyone to use!
For the record we do NOT mislead anyone with any of the posts on this website.
