How to import Apple Music to Traktor DJ Software

Whether you’re just getting into DJing or have years of experience gigging, Traktor DJ software by Native Instruments, who has been on the forefront of the tools and technology of the trade, is a perfect choice.

Traktor DJ software also has excellent hardware support, including NI's own extensive range of controllers and interfaces as well as numerous third-party options. It can also be mapped to any controller you want, which makes it even more flexible.

TRAKTOR PRO 3, available on Windows and macOS, is the flagship DJ software, built for extended customization for professional DJs using different setups in club and festival environments.

TRAKTOR DJ 2, available on Windows, macOS and iPad, is a free DJ app for iPad and desktop that’s designed for you to get spinning straight away - whether you’ve been DJing for decades, or somebody’s just passed you the AUX cable for your first mix.

TRAKTOR DJ 2 and TRAKTOR PRO 3 supported audio formats include: MP3, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, non-DRM AAC. TRAKTOR PRO 3 also supports Audio CD. However, Apple Music songs are formatted in DRM AAC with .m4p extension, so you can't import them to TRAKTOR DJ software directly.

TRAKTOR ’s built in key analysis will present the musical key in either Open Key (4m/1detc) or Musical (C/Ebm). There’s no need for extra software, as the key will be determined during the track analysis. If you’re used to the Camelot system (8A/2B), there are other options such as Mixed In Key .
