Part 1. Does djay Pro Work with Apple Music?
Apple Music, one of the highest-profile streaming music services around, continues its content growth. With a subscription to Apple Music, you’re able to stream over 70 million songs ad-free from around the world and get exclusive playlists and live and on-demand radio stations. Without any doubt, Apple Music is a top place for you to find tracks for mixing with DJ software.
In fact, there is no way for 3rd-party DJ style apps such as djay to play songs from Apple Music. It is because Apple Music still doesn’t open its service to any DJ software. Besides, you cannot use those songs downloaded onto your device from Apple Music, as the downloads are DRM-protected. This is a great limitation of Apple Music, which prevents you from applying Apple Music songs to other places. So, you’re not able to directly use Apple Music with djay Pro for a mix.
