SAM Broadcaster is an Internet DJ application that makes it easier to have a more professional online radio station. It does this by providing a wide variety of tools and features to create better playlists, sound more refined and generate accurate statistics about your listeners that you can use to fine-tune your broadcast.

Long gone are the days of needing a room full of equipment, with racks and racks of tape decks, mixers, compressors and wires. Not that those things are bad! In fact, if you can afford such a setup, you will be pleased to know that SAM Broadcaster is also compatible with existing radio station configurations. However, for those in a more modest financial bracket, having all these features in one software package makes having professional broadcasting tools a lot more accessible to those who need them.

Since SAM Broadcaster keeps detailed statistics about every track that is played, it is simple to cross-reference this data with time-frames and listener data. This creates advanced reports that are useful for making your station even better!

Interacting with your audience is important, and there are built-in features for integrating SAM into your website as well. You can send track information and album artwork, that will change dynamically when the station moves on to the next song. Listeners can request a song through a form, and SAM Broadcaster can queue up the song automatically, using whatever parameters that you need.

If you need an additional way to monetize your online radio station, you can also create links to buy each individual track, and SAM Broadcaster will publish this information with your stream. This is also great for fans, as they will immediately be able to get the song without getting too far away from your broadcast.

This application also works well with all major streaming platforms, such as Windows Media, IceCast, Live365, P2P Streamer and SHOUTcast. You won’t even have to worry about which file types that you use, as SAM can encode multiple popular extensions, such as WM9, P3, Ogg and mp3PRO.

For maximum control over your stream, a dual-deck interface is included so that you can easily queue up the tracks that follow. You can even preview the next song in your headphones while a different track is broadcast to your listeners. With its mixing board and sound effects system, you’ll be sounding like a pro in no time! If you’re worried about the varied quality of your audio tracks, SAM Broadcaster can help. It has the ability to eliminate silence between songs, and has limiters and compressors to give your sound an extra boost.

With its dynamic playlists features, you can create programming that follows a strict format, giving the appearance of a live DJ! Tracks can be chosen by their BPM, and playlists can be constructed according to genre, artists, number of plays and more!

From beginners to seasoned professionals, this software has the tools to make anyone sound great. If you have a love for broadcasting and the content to show for it, SAM Broadcaster can help push your online radio station to the next level.
