I have done a google search but cant seem to see anything, does anyone know if Spacial ever do discount codes for SAM broadcaster.

 

I like SAM even with its quirks and my trial is about to end but any kind of saving against a bill of $299 would be good as need something to justify spending cash rather than just using something like radioDJ

There is Absolutely Nothing wrong with RadioDJ There are Professional stations using that program.

 

Spacial Don't generally tend to give anything away free although they do have that SAM Plus Offer at the moment.

 

If you feel you have money to waste on a product such as SAM which has POOR Support. Then Its your Bank Balance.

 

RadioDJ being a Free program is Far more Stable than SAM and has a Great Support forum.

 

You could also waste money on products such as Radio Boss but i've never liked that program either.

Not really a 'discount' but Spacial does have a payment plan offer where you can pay in 3 monthly installments of $109 (if memory serves) if that helps any. Better than nothing!

 

Also Gary: As with everything else in life, everyone has personal preferences and likes and nothing is ever 100% cross-compatible. What I am trying to say is SAM doesn't have the same features as RadioDJ and vice-a-versa. And that is putting it very lightly. And also for many people it is cheaper to pay for SAM which you may already know well enough than going with RadioDJ and having to relearn from the ground up. Cheaper in this case referring to time spent than money. I'm fairly frugal myself and I'd much sooner throw down the ~$300 for SAM than go with RadioDJ for free due to this exact reason.

 

Now RadioDJ is still in its infant stage. If they can develop it and start chasing SAM in features and capabilities, opinions will definitely change. Most of the people they have attracted now are the extreme newbies and 'run-my-personal-library-from-my-moms-basement-at-zero-cost' types who wouldn't have gone for SAM anyways or have and have used cracked versions.

 

Just my take on it. To each their own and all that. But this is a well educated view on it.

Thing with SAM tho is You pay the $299 dollars then when you want support its just Not there I've seen No end of users being told Oh sorry we cant help you or this is beyond our remit type answers which for a paid for piece of software just isn't on.

 

Yes radioDJ is still under development and will hopefully have a Lot more Features in the next version Including Voice tracking and Song requests, But it Runs Flawlessly and works far better than a piece of software that costs a lot of money. Also ive yet to see a user not Get help on their Forum.

 

SAM still has Many BUGS which haven't been fixed since earlier versions Spacial are just Fleecing money out of people for a piece of software that is Always Locking up Not running correctly and just generally being a Poor piece of automation software.

 

If You Pay for Crap You generally get Crap. If this Guy has the Money to burn then hey thats his Choice.

 

Also may i Add RadioDJ Plays Far more formats than SAM - RadioDj can handle Compatible audio formats: mp3, wav, wma, aac, flac, ac3; Where as i think SAM only Plays mp3 WMA and Wav.

I asked about any discount codes for SAM and not to start a debate about which is better as gary you have made your views on this board several times which is cool. I even tried radiodj and just cant take to it as well as I did with SAM, but I might consider still using Radiodj if I cant get a decent discount code.

 

But thats wasnt my OT and thats why I posted in the SAM broadcaster section and not the lets have a debate about different software section , so back to OT if anyone knows of any discount codes please let me know...

Hello Gary,

 

Indeed "isaacl" made a post about this current SAM post

however into the past week, a new member called "spacial" did a "bulk post" of several posts, including pictures, of this 50% sale of SAM

Yes you have already mentioned it in another thread No Need to Double post thats just bad forum Etiquette

Personally i couldn't care even if Spacial were giving SAM away for free.

I know I was not many times around the past Months at BW, however I visit BW every day, just to check some new posts

but that not making of daily posts has its reasons (January = 3 funerals and following health probs of some family members) so 2012 started not that good for Me

 

I am a SAM user since 2003, I had my issues to learn how the software is working and its behaviour

and yes sometimes it has a bug somewhere, somehow - a track who has a bad fade in or other ...

but all of this can also happen to professional National FM radiostations - nobody and nothing is 100% perfect

to be honest every software has suddenly probs who can't be explained ... so SAM has also

I use my PALs (just 3 different types), my Event Sheduler and SAM works 24/7 in Autodj mode, including DSP plugins to achieve a nice sound - for reason that for sure the AGC settings and presets of SAM sucks all the way

It runs on my "old" XP pc, and it does what is asked

If you are not convinced of this, please check and listen to my stream
