My Show Has Been “tanked” Repeatedly

Your Sam Broadcaster Subscription Has Expired?

Over the last couple of years now Spacial audio have gone with a subscription based model for the newer versions of SAM Broadcaster. Nothing wrong with that I hear you say…

“However should your subscription run out part way through the year, You are left stuck with the last version of SAM Broadcaster your subscription was eligible for & you would need to pay out $$$ all over again to upgrade to the latest version”

You’re Cracking Us Up!!

I’ve written a few posts on this blog pertaining to people looking for SAM Broadcaster keys/cracks/keygens etc…

When I wrote them I had no idea that those posts would take on a life of their own.

SAM Broadcaster cracks searches

As far as I’m aware Spacial Audio don’t seem to think there’s a problem with people wanting pirated versions of their badly written software. Although they do put in several DMCA requests to Google every year.

Sam Broadcaster Mac Sql Problems

SAM Broadcaster for the Mac has now been Scrapped/discontinued by Spacial Audio!

This past few days I’ve seen a few users saying they were having issues when installing SAM Broadcaster Mac (Crossover) edition.

SAM Broadcaster Mac SQL problems

For some unknown reason it appears the crossover version won’t connect to the users MySQL database.

Database installation problems with SAM Broadcaster aren’t just confined to the Mac (Crossover) version.

I had no end of problems trying to get SAM to install the database in the Windows version in the past.

As I said in a previous post…

It appears the SAM Broadcaster Mac (Crossover) version was cobbled together in a rush to get a working release out.

The SAM Broadcaster Mac edition isn’t native Mac software. It’s just the Windows version ported over.

I knew there would be problems when Spacial ported SAM Broadcaster to the Mac.

The Windows version has enough of it’s own issues & bugs to begin with.

Sadly when it comes to the Mac there aren’t that many alternatives when it comes to radio automation software written natively for OS X.

The only other “alternative” I can suggest is installing Windows on Virtualbox on your Mac and have that running a copy of software such as RadioDJ

We realise that’s probably not an ideal solution for most Mac users but we’re afraid its as good as you’re going to get at the moment.

Who knows one day maybe some boffin will come up with a decent “Native” automation software package for the Mac…

Stop paying $$$ for software from Spacial Audio you’re just paying them to lurch from one disaster to another.
