Spacial Audio Like To Play BIG Corporate

Image
Spacial Audio Solutions like to play BIG corporate company when it comes to their software support when in reality they are a small time software company based in Sherman Oaks, California. The support team is staffed by people who have NEVER used the software and who usually send the wrong replies. I love SAM Broadcaster but @spacial Customer Support makes me feel more like a Victim, than a customer. The Customer Support Manager is RUDE to users on a regular basis (Why he's still in a job I don't know) Spacial Audio may well have been worth $59,000,000 based on the amount of copies of SAM Broadcaster they have claimed to have sold worldwide. We doubt they're even worth a quarter of that these days According to a recent Google search Spacial Audio turnover is rumoured to be around $4 - $5 Million a year.

SAM Broadcaster Cuts Off The End Of Jingles

As hard as I tried I could never get SAM to play jingles or station ID's properly it would always CHOP the end off. This was a question asked recently on the SAM Broadcaster Forums.

I regularly saw people asking on the SAM forums a

PlayItLive Radio Automation Software

This program had been on my radar for quite a while & I last tested it for about 5/6 years ago now. I downloaded, installed & then I started importing tracks into it via the built in tracks manager feature. Unfortunately that's where it all started going downhill. It started scanning a folder of 1400 tracks then completely chose to ignore about 200 of them. Those 200 files are all loaded into RadioDJ with no issues so that wasn't a great start. Another user posted this on Social Media I've dropped Playit Live from my studio as it was too much like hard work Then there's the reports of frequent crashes with the software I am having problems with PlayIt Live regarding how frequently it crashes I am asking for help on how to stop the system from crashing Radio software shouldn't crash on a user it makes the DJ look stupid and NO DJ wants THAT feeling. The EULA for the software is somewhat laughable. Dict
