SAM Broadcaster is a powerful audio studio ideal for broadcasting both live and pre-recorded content. With this program your computer can become a real audio studio. To use SAM Broadcaster you need to have at least a 54kbps internet connection, soundcard, microphone, and a valid live stream hosting account for a stream hosting server.
You need to setup an encoder to supply the streaming server with a source stream. The program has different inputs, including two player decks, a voiceFX input, and auxiliary input. You can choose which input goes on air or preview the output before broadcasting. You can use the fade control to crossfade between songs. You can drag and drop files from the Windows Explorer onto the queue list or directly onto the player decks. It is recommended to load the Queue list, so your music will be ready before going on air. You can use any of the sound effects in order to enhance your broadcasting. All the media played is automatically added to the history list, so you can explore the last 200 files played.


  • You can preview the output before broadcasting.
  • It includes sound effects and a crossfade control.


  • Trial version works only for 14 days.

    We used SAM for the past 5 yrs and we've never had any issues. Not until recently when we decided to upgrade to the latest version of 2016. Because we never had any issues before. we did not go through the 14 day trial. After the first week, we started experiencing issues with the software. Playlists were being shuffled even when the settings are in "Auto DJ or Queue". We contacted support hoping that it is something that they should be able to fix. We went back n forth with support to try out different things. They even sent us another download link for SAM. This didn't fix it either. It continued getting worse each passing day. Remember that during all this time, we've now passed the 14 days of trial. We had hope that this could be fixed. Not after about 21 days we realized that the software they sold us this time was a piece of garbage and had a lotta issues. Our presenters had to cancel some of their shows because the application was so unstable and outta control. At some point you'd add files to the queue window and they get shuffled to the bottom of the playlist, get skipped or disappear completely from the list. Can't even know where to find them. Bottom line, their tech support couldn't fix the issues. When we finally give up on having this piece of garbage fixed, we contacted them about a possible REFUND, they referred us to their stupid policy which states that once you decide to buy it, there is NO REFUND. But remember that this software begins to fall apart and develop major issues usually after maybe 21 days. By that time you're already committed and bought it. It has a lotta of great features and if you liked it like we have the pasted 5 yrs, you've already committed yourself to buying it. That is when you find yourself trapped and stuck with it. A lotta software companies give you 30 days trial so that you get to test out the software of any issues. SAM people rip you off with 14 days trial. I could go on for a while but i'll end with a WARNING to anybody who is planning to buy the new version (SAM 2016). STOP n run in the opposite direction. Stay away from it n save yourself. It is a HALF BAKED piece of you know what!! Don't get ripped off like we did for $300. This new version is not worth this money at all. Maybe for $50 you'd take a risk. I hope you take the hint otherwise don't blame anybody else when you get screwed by these people.
