Very Upset with Spacial Audio Technical Support

The Spacial Audio support department strike again! I have been a Sam Broadcaster customer for over 15 years. I have reinstalled a PC due to a problem with Windows and when I wanted to activate my license it did not allow me. I've been writing to Spacial technical support for two days and they won't give me a solution. I have my radio station losing thousands of listeners, We have audiences of 1000 concurrent listeners and now I am below 100 because the software is not fully working. I don't know what to do anymore. It appears the activation system is yet again causing users issues even if they've deactivated before reinstalling Things like this should NEVER happen with radio automation software. A radio DJ needs software to work so they can do their job or hobby. It all stems from the fact SAM Broadcaster was pirated a LOT back in the days on 4.x.x versions. Spacial Audio introduced the activation requirement to cut down on the amou

Where Have All the Software Pirates Gone?

Over the past few years I've seen Tweets on Twitter offering cracked copies of SAM Broadcaster Pro I'm pretty sure the same thing has been going on on other social media websites. Recently the Tweets offering these cracks have calmed down. Not seen anyone offering pirated copies of SAM since late 2020. Not even seen anyone offering SAM Broadcaster 4.2.2 which was the most pirated version of SAM Broadcaster. On the whole that has to be GOOD NEWS. I'm sure Spacial Audio will be thrilled. These software Pirates have obviously realised you DON'T NEED a Pirated version of SAM Broadcaster you just need RadioDJ No activations – No contracts - No keys – No hidden fees – No catches - No gimmicks How To Install RadioDJ I guess my Hardwork battling those Tweets about pirated software has somewhat paid off. If you're still one of those people who has a pirated/warez/cracked copy of SAM Broadcaster Pro installed then SHAME ON YOU!

XML Files Cause SAM Broadcaster To Crash

As the title of the blog post would suggest SAM Broadcaster crashes when .XML files get corrupted. It can be frustrating when SAM goes wrong for no apparent reason. Sounds like a broken SAMBC.core.xml file. Try uninstalling and reinstalling SAM. Although you will loose all of your settings. SAM Broadcaster Pro relies on .xml files for its operation it only takes one of those files to become corrupt and SAM does a disappearing act. How the XML files become corrupt in SAM Broadcaster Pro is anyones GUESS! Then you have to reinstall the software from scratch losing all your settings in the process. Trying to get SAM Broadcaster to work but it crashes within 24 hours. RadioDJ also relies on .xml files for backend & plugin functions & I've NEVER had RadioDJ crash like SAM. FACT: RadioDJ performs 100 times better than SAM Broadcaster Pro Soundca

Why Do I Only Promote FREE Radio Software?

Q: Why do I only promote free radio software from this blog site? In my own experience when I've paid $$$ for software in the past I've ran into issues that stopped me in my tracks. Users like me paid hundreds $$$ for radio automation software & found the support sucked for those pieces of software Some software companies seem to plod on year after year not updating their software all the while still taking paying customers money. I don't need to say who the biggest bunch of cowboys are when it comes to customer support. You only have to search this blog to find that one out. Lack of customer support is one huge reason I hate paying for software. Another is when Vendors/Authors of software suddenly disappear off the face of the Earth and then their software becomes obsolete. I find some FREE software can be absolutley Amazing sometimes. FREE SOFTWARE is my favourite sort of software
