Sam Broadcaster Clockwheel Failure

Just seen a post on the Spacial forums from a user complaining that they have had a “SAM Broadcaster clockwheel failure”

“When a clockwheel failure happens in the program, SAM Broadcaster only plays station ID’s instead of playing music from the categories the user has specified within the clockwheel rotation setup”

This has been a huge problem with SAM Broadcaster ever since the early versions of the SAM Broadcaster 2.x.x series.

Sam Broadcaster Unable To Queue A Song After 20 Tries

If you’re a user of SAM Broadcaster there is no doubt you will have seen an error message like this at some point.

“SAM Broadcaster Unable to Queue a song after 20 tries”

SAM Broadcaster Unable to Queue a song after 20 tries

This happened just after installing and configuring SAM Broadcaster 2014.7

A fresh import of songs fresh clockwheel the works. SAM Broadcaster just wouldn’t put any songs in the queue.

4 days worth of music

As you can see from the screenshot I had over 4 days worth of music in the category in SAM Broadcaster for a clockwheel rotation to pick from.

It’s yet more evidence of a problem within SAM Broadcaster called “A clockwheel failure”

“A clockwheel failure happens when SAM Broadcaster won’t pick songs from categories even if those categories have enough songs/artists/tracks in them”

If SAM Broadcaster has failed on you like this then may we suggest you switch to Radio DJ free radio automation software.

RadioDJ free radio automation software

We’ve never had this happen with RadioDJ free radio automation software.

It doesn’t seem to matter what rotations I program in RadioDJ the songs load into the playlist as they should.

We’ve been using RadioDJ since 2011 and don’t have anywhere near the same amount of stress we had when using SAM Broadcaster.

Stop paying Spacial Audio for SAM Broadcaster! They aren’t interested in smoothing out bugs like the clockwheel failure in SAM Broadcaster.

Spacial only seem to care about how much $$$ they make for their parent companies rather than actually fix bugs in the program.
