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…
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.
IF the software had been written properly to begin with and was a stable/reliable program then all these 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.
RadioDJ just automates music as it should, sometimes for weeks and months.
RadioDJ also has a nifty MySQL database backup tool (In case the worst should happen)
Also we’re not constantly having to rebuild the database with RadioDJ. Whereas with SAM Broadcaster it was a weekly/monthly problem.
RadioDJ is so reliable and stable we don’t need to worry about leaving the program alone to do the automation.
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 a badly coded program that costs LOTS of $$$
