Read the full changelog
SAM Broadcaster PLUS is an advanced automation software app for online radio broadcasters. It comes with advanced broadcasting utilities for helping them manage their own radio station.
Prior configuration settings
As soon as you finish with the installation process, you need to select the database system, FireBird, MySQL, PostgreSQL or MS SQL. For example, if you opt for FireBird, you may use the default settings or tweak custom ones (e.g. access mode, database authentication parameters, remote server’s host and port), and add your audio files to the media library.
Plus, you can include default sound effects and demo audio files and choose the playback audio device and recording device.
Although it comes with a comprehensive feature pack, it delivers a clean and user-friendly working environment. The GUI is divided into several smart panes that give you quick access to two decks, clock, playlist, queue list, history, as well as voice and sound effects.
The best part about the GUI is that is fully customizable, as you may close the panes that are not relevant for your work and enable only the desired ones. Plus, you may work with up to three different layouts (each with its own customization options) and easily switch between them directly from the toolbar.
Power audio features
SAM Broadcaster PLUS gives you the possibility to make use of powerful features for tweaking the sound like a professional DJ, such as cross-fade detection, gap killer, volume normalization and 5-band compressor and limiter. Thanks to its dual deck support, you can easily queue the next song.
Plus, you may stream in multiple audio formats, including AAC, AAC-HE, MP3, and OGG, and stream your radio station on popular online servers, including SHOUTcast, AudioRealm, IceCast, Windows Media and Live 365.
Working with two decks, DJ modes and other handy options
Each deck comes with its own media player which helps you play, pause or stop the current selection, check out the remaining time, enable or disable the On-Air and preview output, alter the volume, pitch and tempo, and work with a powerful equalizer.
Additionally, the program lets you opt for an automatic or manual DJ mode or simply play the songs placed in the queue list, organize your media library into multiple categories, and import info from tags or automatically look up track data via Amazon.com.
You can import audio files from playlists (e.g. M3U, PLS, ASX, TXT, WPL), search for songs, view a history with played tracks, embed various sound effects (e.g. applause, school bell, phone ring, scream), as well as configure voice FX settings by recording the audio stream, adjusting buffer settings and automatically fading music in or out.
Statistics and playlist rotation scheduler
SAM Broadcaster PLUS offers support for real-time statistics and graphs about your listeners and includes a playlist rotation scheduler for playing audio files at a certain time and date. You can check out the event log for additional pieces of information about the broadcasting task, mute the sound, and generate reports.
Reliable and efficient broadcasting DJ automation tool
All in all, SAM Broadcaster PLUS comes with a decent feature pack for helping you manage your own Internet radio station. The intuitive set of features makes this app suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
