Free Alternative To Sam Broadcaster

FAQ: Is there a free alternative to SAM Broadcaster Pro?

A: Yes RadioDJ is a 100% FREE alternative to SAM Broadcaster

RadioDJ is suitable for DJs of all ages and abilities and makes for a perfect Auto DJ system.

“Nope! Altacast is/was coded by a completely different person who seems to have disappeared off the Internet”

Important: Altacast Plugin for RadioDJ will NOT function with RadioDJ v2.0.0 you’ll be stuck on v1.8.2 if you wish to keep using that UNSUPPORTED plugin.
