Rising from New Zealand, Serato DJ is a software using for digital music mixing. As an alternative to Virtual DJ, Serato DJ is way cheaper than Virtual DJ. You can get Serato DJ Pro at $129 or $9.99 for the monthly subscription. Serato DJ Lite is even free. Also, Serato SJ is relatively simple to get mixing with, so it is better for DJ beginner.

Apple Music is home to 50 million songs, with some exclusive you can only access via Apple Music. Apple Music supposes to be a great resource for music mixing. However, you are not able to mix Apple Music with Serato DJ since Serato DJ doesn't support Apple Music and DRM on Apple Music songs also stops you from adding the songs to third-party software. If you are trying to mix Apple Music with Serato DJ, you are coming to the right place because here are 2 best solutions to fix the problem.

Solution 1: Synchronize Apple Music Playlists to TIDAL
Solution 2: Convert Apple Music to MP3

Solution 1: Synchronize Apple Music Playlists to TIDAL

Although Serato DJ doesn't support Apple Music, it supports TIDAL and SoundCloud from right inside the software. So, in this section, we will introduce a solution to sync your Apple Music playlists to TIDAL. To do that, first of all, you need a TIDAL subscription. Please note that you should update your Serato DJ to the latest version, whether it is Serato DJ Pro or Serato DJ Lite.

Now, the key to this method is a service called Soundiiz, which serves as a middleman between all of the current streaming services, such as Apple Music, Spotify, TIDAL, Deezer, SoundCloud, and Youtube Music. Soundiiz can convert all the playlists that you currently have in those services over on to TIDAL. Soundiiz provides the automated transference of playlists, as well as a single interface as which to manage and synchronize between these music streaming services. After you sign up to Soundiiz, use it to transfer your playlists to TIDAL, you can then access them from within Serato DJ and spin with those tracks.

Solution 2: Convert Apple Music to MP3

This solution is to remove DRM from Apple Music songs and convert them to MP3 format so that you can directly import Apple Music to Serato DJ. Here you will need TunesKit DRM Audio Converter.

Step 1 Add Apple Music to the Converter

First, download TunesKit DRM Audio Converter from the above link and please guarantee that you've authorized your computer to stream Apple Music songs. Then launch TunesKit and from the main interface, you will see three icons on the central top of the main screen. Here's what they for:

1) This Music Note button is for importing DRM audios to the Converter.

2) This one is to add non-DRM audios to the Converter.

3) This is the "Converted History". When the conversion is done your converted files will be placed under this catalog.

Most of the Apple Music songs are DRM-ed, so you should click the Music Note button to import them to the converter. Or directly drag files from the Apple Music media folder to the TunesKit.

Step 2 Set Output Format and Output Path

select format

When you finish the step 1, open the "Format" panel to select an output format for your audio files. Serato DJ Pro supported file types including MP3, OGG, ALAC,(mac & windows 10 only), FLAC, AIF, WAV, WL.MP3, MP4, M4A, and AAC(Mac only). TunesKit allows you to convert DRM audios to MP3, AAC, M4A, M4B, WAV, and FLAC, which means that you can choose any one of them as your output format. We recommend MP3 but you can make your choice depends on what you need. Right next to the "Format" is the Output Path option. Click on to select a file destination for you converted songs.

Step 3 Convert Apple Music to DRM-free Format

Once you are done with all the settings and editing, you can take up the conversion by pressing the "Convert" button. Wait for a few minutes until the conversion finishes, then you can locate the DRM-free audio files in the folder you've selected. If you don't remember which folder you choose, you can go to the Converted History and use to find them. Since you get the converted Apple Music, you can import them to Serato DJ for remixing.

Comparison Between Solution 1 and Solution 2

Comparing these two solutions, Solution 1 is very suitable for multiple music streaming services subscriber because it not only works for Apple Music but also for other music streaming services. However, Solution 1 requires you to have both Apple Music subscription and TIDAL subscription at the same time, which may cost you more money every month. Besides that, the free account for Soundiiz lacks many features, so you may have to pay for it to get the full service. On the contrary, Solution 2 is like you can fix the problem once and for all, without much cost. To take better advantages of the converted files, you can also stream them to any of your devices. It's clear that solution 2 is more particle. Just try the TunesKit and sure you'll like it.
