Part 1. Can You Use Apple Music on Rekordbox?

Rekordbox has integrated management of multiple music libraries, such as iTunes, Inflyte, Tidal, Beatport, SoundCloud, and Beatsource. However, Apple Music doesn’t offer its streaming service to any DJ software, including Rekordbox. This means that all users cannot connect Apple Music to Rekordbox for use although you are subscribing to any plan on Apple Music.

And beyond that, Apple Music doesn’t allow users to enjoy music and playlist on those devices without the Apple Music app. It plugs around format protection that when not yet removed, inhibits you from streaming its media content to unauthorized devices and players. But third-party applications have stepped in to help in the conversion and playing of Apple Music.

Track mode in Rekordbox allows users to import individual tracks into the library. All the major file formats like MP3, WAV, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, and AIFF are supported by Rekordbox. There is only one way to resolve this incompatibility issue – using an Apple Music converter. With the help of an Apple Music converter, you can remove DRM protection from Apple Music and convert Apple Music to Rekordbox-compatible audio formats like MP3.
