Apple Music has a giant music catalog—over 60 million songs that you can lose yourself in. You can stream online or offline with access across your devices. How do you import Apple Music to Traktor Dj to bring DJ-style effects and transitions to your music?

But there is only one caveat. It is nearly impossible to stream or play Apple Music on an unauthorized device or platform. Because Apple protects its music streaming services with DRM from people copying it and enjoys it without authorization. They encode their songs in an M4P format which disallow importation of music to non-supported device or platform.

So if you’re using Traktor DJ software, it isn’t easy to exercise multi-touch mixing directly with Apple Music. But that doesn’t mean it is impossible. There is a way. So if you were asking about how to add Apple Music to Traktor DJ, let’s find out a way right now.
