SAM Broadcaster Testimonials

Ken says

I have been running SAM [Broadcaster] since beta days and would never change. We have currently been up and running without a single hiccup for over 31 days straight. 60,000 plus tracks, P4 1Ghz CPU, 20 PAL scripts running, 22 scheduled events.
Ken, Bad Attitude radio

Kioni says

I too am pleased with SAM and the support team. Sean and Louis have been very helpful and diligent to respond in a reasonable time. SAM has been in continuous operation operation on my station for 3 weeks without any problems. I can’t believe I spent over $700 for another product when SAM 3 had everything I wanted and more, plus IT WORKS AS ADVERTISED!!!

ProtegeChris says

When I first got SAM, my website was lacking in features, to say the least. There comes a point in every webcaster’s experiences where you’ve just got to invest in a powerful tool to manage your station, and I chose SAM broadcaster. Not only is it extremely convenient to use SAM due to the high level of automation you can receive, but the amount of interaction it allows for you to have on your website is just amazing. When I started out broadcasting, I was receiving under 1,000 hits per month on my website, now I’m receiving over 110,000 unique hits per month, and the most common comment I receive is about how interactive my site is, and how many more features I have over my competitors. For that, I thank the Spacial Audio staff for producing the wonderful product I’ve relied on for so long now, SAM Broadcaster. I’ve gotten 84 days uptime running SAM, noip, a memory manager, and mysql. I restarted it then because I was leaving for a few days and just wanted to be safe.

Larry Berger says

I am simply amazed at the power of SAM, especially when used in combination with!
We were able to get live and on-demand tests running after only an hour or so of prep, and have been slowly improving and tinkering to prepare for a launch. I’ve been involved at all levels (including the detailed areas on server, website and user sides) and have been delighted. We care alot about details at SLB and every time I’ve thought ‘I wonder if SAM can do this’, the feature has been there! The forum archives also have been useful.
It is honestly rare that I ‘gush’ about a product/service like this, but I am simply wowed by what I’m discovering…and we’ve had enough of experience with evaluating competing systems to appreciate what Louis has done here.
There are alot of people that need to be made aware of both product lines and I’m looking forward to helping to spread the word.

VChat20 says

SAM has ran on pretty much every computer i tried even with other junk hogging up cpu cycles. Solid as a rock!

Jim Murphy says

Guys, Kudos. This is the most kick-ass web radio broadcaster I have seen. UN-BELIEVEABLE.Kick-ass.

Gary says

The more I play with SAM the more I’m impressed, how incredibly powerful it is and how flexible it actually is. I just wanted to say thanks to the Spacialaudio development team and all those who actively support the end-users here on the forums and back in SAM land.

Matt/CP Radio says

I was over 1100 hours on SAM2 before I upgraded to SAM3…I’m assuming I’ll get that same reliabilty with the upgrade….now it’s more of a worry of my power going out than SAM crashing.

Kyle says

Thank you for a prompt response, I’ve gotten it situated and once again, thanks for a great software, very very great software… couldn’t be any better.

Brian Peckham says

People often complain and rarely compliment.
I would like to tell you how pleased I have been with your SAM4 Product.
Keep up the good work!

Robert says

Just want to say, I say I say I say, this program is the bee’s knees. The ducks guts, the Big Banana, the BIG Kahuna, one decent bit of software…. just bloody really Nice, you know. and your forever-patient feedback should be packaged and sent to a few politicians as a bit of a guide line….
I’m not a big online player, but run automated to FM and this baby just runs and runs and runs. Oh I know, a glitch here and there, but then some mornings my car won’t start either and that technology has been around a real lot longer ! ‘Gawd… what do you mean, I buy a car and have to put petrol in it as well!!!!’
Right now. running the latest from the main download site. Running Setiathome on permanent processing, Outlook, mysql, php, perl blah blah blah and a gazillion other programs that 2000 Advanced Server starts up for reasons best known to itself.
not a hiccup. not a squeek. not a squark. Just ‘Hat Music’ for hours on end…. I have to get outside ocassionally. really. Find a good woman, find a bar, find … whoa… hold on there.
Nice program guys. Runs so smooth I can actually ‘set and forget’ it. Gotta get the station – if I get back on the internet in a big way – back onto the Windows Media Station site. Hat Music (Country) – couldn’t keep up with the volume of listeners. Thousands. hourly. always. My kingdom for BANDWIDTH….
