"Start streaming live audio content with SAM C"
SAM Cast Pro is a software package to stream live content across the internet without the need for much more expensive software and pricey audio hosting to accomplish the same task.
The package includes a busy-looking interface that packs in many features like audio processor, gated AGC, a bass equalizer, a 5-band processor and an audio clipper. Multiple formats can be encoded and multiple bit rates are supported. Multiple sample rates can be encoded at the same time using this software which can help reduce the time it takes to create multiple versions of the same audio stream so users can pick between less or more bandwidth-intensive listening options on a live (or recorded) broadcast.
See real-time audience figures to compare them to previous broadcasts. The station playback history can also be viewed to see how things looked in the past on the same station.
The installation of SAM Cast Pro requires 11.2 MB of available space and went smoothly without any issues.
The software does not include an unwanted toolbars, adware or malicious extras.
SAM Cast Pro requires Windows Vista, XP, 7, 8 or Windows Server (32-bit and 64-bit operating system versions are supported).
The interface is like a digital deck with many slider controls, LEDs level indicators, and read outs all updating in real-time as changes are made or audio feeds through the desk. It can take a while to figure out what everything does as the number of included features is considerable.
Black, gray and dark gray are the prominent colors used to give the software a sleek look that will look right at place in any studio environment.
