Sam Broadcaster No1 Selling Radio Automation Program?

Spacial Audio had something of a monopoly when it came to Internet radio automation software.

19 years or so ago people wanting to run an Internet radio station had only 1 option and that was to pay $$$ for radio automation software.

SAM Broadcaster may well have been the No1 selling radio automation program once upon a time

But RadioDJ v1.8.2 was downloaded over 220,000 times making it more popular than SAM Broadcaster by a mile.

Why I Hate Sam Broadcaster!

Q: Why do I dislike SAM Broadcaster?

SAM2Broadcaster

A: I could never get through a radio show without something going wrong with the software

Whether it be the program crashing/freezing or the encoders buffering on me.

It got tedious having to constantly reinstall/reconfigure the program after a crash. I thought at first it was a problem confined to my computer

How wrong I was!

Sam Broadcaster Unacceptable Activation Error

Did one of my regular visits to the Spacial Audio forums just to see what the latest posts/gripes from customers were.

“I find these activation errors with this software absolutely ridiculous”

 
A long time advocate of SAM Broadcaster seems to be getting rather annoyed with the way the program activation server says they have already exceeded their activation limit.

Spacial Discontinue Sam Broadcaster Mac

While doing my usual bits and pieces on the Internet this morning and I saw this tweet.

SAM Broadcaster Mac Discontinued

It’s been less than 12 months since they released the “Crossover” version of SAM Broadcaster for Mac.

I predicted it was going to be an unmitigated disaster when I heard they’d ported over SAM Broadcaster (Windows) to the Mac using Crossover.

It would appear I was right again.

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”
