We’ve been accused of using Marketing Gimmicks when it comes to the posts on this website.
We’ve also been accused of making up the posts about the many problems that SAM Broadcaster Pro appears to suffer from…
Just a few moments ago, SAM Broadcaster Pro took a massive dump on me and I had to restart the PC
The problems documented on this website and its posts are just a few of the reasons as to why we think SAM Broadcaster isn’t worth the $299 Spacial Audio charge for their software.
We certainly don’t need to use Marketing Gimmicks either RadioDJ can clearly speak for itself by the amount of downloads.
It appears the fact RadioDJ is a free automation alternative to SAM has got Spacial Audio RATTLED!
We used SAM Broadcaster in its various guises for just over 10/11 years so we know all of it’s little quirks and annoying issues and there are lots of them.
SAM Broadcaster software has caused me to swear many times over the years. I don’t curse at RadioDJ!
IF the software had been written properly to begin with and was a stable/reliable program then the blog posts about the different issues within SAM wouldn’t have needed to be written.
We’ve tried running SAM Broadcaster on several computers and different operating systems over the years.
With pretty much the same results everytime we’ve gone to run the program.
SAM Broadcaster would crash after a while. Sometimes taking the database with it, or it wouldn’t fire up after a reboot of the computer.
Which then required a complete reinstall of the program from scratch, It became tiresome having to constantly uninstall/reinstall the program.
We’re not constantly having to rebuild the database with RadioDJ. Whereas with SAM Broadcaster it was a weekly/monthly problem.
RadioDJ has a nifty database backup tool just incase the worst should happen, It backs up the entire MySQL database.
RadioDJ is really stable and works for months without needing a restart.
RadioDJ is so reliable and stable we don’t need to worry about leaving the program to its own devices. I was having to keep a constant watch over SAM to make sure it was still playing music.
Spacial Audio really should concentrate on making SAM Broadcaster a BUG FREE program. Instead of accusing us of marketing gimmicks.
Otherwise they’re going to lose even more customers, Mind they’ve already lost a lot of sales to RadioDJ, That in itself speak volumes,
Who Knew? That people would prefer freely available radio automation software over badly coded software that costs LOTS of $$$
