Q: Why pay Spacial Audio $$$ For SAM Broadcaster Pro or Studio?
Its a perfectly legitimate question to ask.
Spacial Audio ask users to stump up between $299 & $699 for the pro and studio editions of SAM Broadcaster.
The fact that the SAM Broadcaster Studio edition is $400 more expensive than SAM Broadcaster Pro is down to the a change in the EULA (End user licence agreement)
The snag is you cannot use a normal bog standard $299 copy of SAM Broadcaster Pro to run a terrestrial (AM/FM) radio station with.
When your paying between $299-$699 for radio automation software you would expect it to come without those sort of limitations.
Unfortunately that’s not where the limitations end. As we’ve blogged before you can then only use 1 licensed copy of SAM Broadcaster per radio station.
STOP! Don’t part with any money for SAM Broadcaster!
You will only regret purchasing SAM Broadcaster and be left out of pocket when something goes wrong.
“SAM Broadcaster always freezes. I like Radio DJ better runs more smoothly”
You don’t need to spend $$$ on SAM Broadcaster when there is a better free alternative.
RadioDJ doesn’t have any silly limitations imposed on it.
You can use it: How you want, Where you want, When you want. There are no activations or keycodes.
You can also run more than one radio station with the software if you so desire.
Even Commercial (FM) radio stations have seen the potential in RadioDJ free radio automation software. We know of a few stations using RadioDJ as their main playout on a terrestrial station.
We also knew of one user running 4 different Shoutcast stations. That’s how flexible RadioDJ can be.
We’ve used RadioDJ since 2010 and it’s taken all the hassle out of automating our music. It was really reliable when we ran a backup stream for a station.
Once setup RadioDJ can run for weeks & months without anyone keeping an eye on it which is something that cannot be said for SAM Broadcaster.
Why not spend the money you saved on bits and pieces for your studio instead. It makes much more sense don’t you think?
