You have Spotify integration, so will you be looking to integrate Apple Music to have access to all music over 'streaming' to play on the deck?

So far Apple hasn't mentioned a 3rd party API for Apple Music to developers so as of now, we have no idea whether there will be a way for 3rd party software to interact with Apple Music. So even if Algoriddim wanted to implement Apple Music, there's no way to do it right now. My guess is that we will see an API released later this year, like when the Android App comes out. They don't want to release an API; then, realize something is wrong with it and have to make all developers change it. API's rarely change once made public. So they definitely want to get this right. Don't get rid of your Spotify subscriptions just yet. It looks like it could be a full year between development time for Algoriddim to integrate Apple Music and development time for Apple, IF an API were released this year. We may also never see a public API depending on how the music deal's between Apple and record labels are written. However, another likely possibility is that if you download the music for offline play, it will be accessible in djay via iTunes much the same way iTunes Match works. Thus, we wouldn't need an API right away as this would be a great work around. Though having an API would be best because it allows searching the entire iTunes Store catalog to call up a song. However, it's impossible to say right now since Apple Music isn't out yet, but at least here are some ideas of what we may see in the future here.

As of 9.3 this is now possible. Do you have a time frame for when it's available?

I want to delete my account at Spotify and switch to Apple Music, once supported in DJAY Pro. Hopefully there that soon an update .... would also be in the interest of Apple Music ;)

As far, it helps if Algoriddim team show some position about the plans to include Music in the software.

This is good news for having a 3rd Party Apple Music API.

Unfortunately there is currently no way for 3rd-party apps such as djay to play songs from Apple Music, Apple’s music streaming service. That being said, djay provides a sophisticated integration for all tracks downloaded onto your device (via iTunes). You can browse your music library by Playlist, Artist, Album, Genre, Key, History, and more.

Furthermore djay integrates with Spotify, giving you instant access to millions of tracks. Spotify integration in djay includes all of your existing playlists, starred and saved songs, powerful search capabilities, charts, browse, and Match for intelligent song recommendations.

Adrian, are you sure that Apple Music doesn't allow integration with the streaming service still?

I signed up for the trial of Apple Music. I was rather disappointed. The new version of iTunes required is buggy. I can crash it at will. I know I could not switch to this now with DJay because it is not integrated. I'm an not sure if I could I would. Spotify seems more mature. However the first one that lets me do offline music with Djay I will be very interested in taking it for a drive. It is not reasonable to expect a fast reliable internet connection at every gig. I also have to mix spotify live as you cannot prerecord a mix. There has to be a better way. But still protect the artists.

I agree completely. Need to be able to play downloaded files as a priority. I think the new version of iTunes has tanked a lot of libraries metadata. I edited a lot of metadata so my songs would match rather than upload, but the metadata constantly resets itself. It's definitely not a finished product. And the bugs probably won't be resolved until the next version of Mac OS X comes out in the fall.

If they won't let us record. What if instead of actually recording the song. You could record the mixing data but not the music itself. Then later I could load the songs and apply my previous macros and essentially mix what I did before live.
Maybe that is too complicated but just an idea.

Being a long time djay user, I pulled out an older version because I knew the older versions could play DRM songs as long as iTunes was open. However, while it works for the older iTunes DRM songs (way back when iTunes had DRM), it doesn't work for songs downloaded from Apple Music. As a side note, it would appear to developers that Apple is working on an API since Sonos will have support by the end of the year.

I live in Japan where Spotify is not available. This is why I'm hoping that I can use Apple Music with djay 2.

Hey, where is the difference between spotify and Apple music? Why can spotify provide the songs in djay and Apple music not? Are the spotify songs without drm and why is it possible?

Thanks for an hint!

Hmmm... I see a lot of confusing comments...
Adrian is an employee and should be able to clear the air here, but here some facts to answer a diversity of questions on this subject;
I used to use Spotify but switch to Apple Music because the content is much better, more complete and mainly the sound quality!
I've been using Apple Music since it started (got the free month and switch immediately) and since then I never opened again, Spotify, nor Pandora, nor iHeart.

That a side and knowing that both versions DJay2 and Pro do support both Spotify and Apple Music, would love to be able to access the streaming service rather than downloading the music locally (although for performance purposes if you are "performing", you may want to have all the music locally stored).

Apple just announced the new MusicKit API for Apple Music integration to apps.

Is it the API we were all waiting for ?

If yes, is this API also macos compatible ?

Why can the DJ Software MegaSeg add Apple Music and you say it is not possible?

Harald, MegaSeg is using the previous API where it's only allowed to use Apple's player (no mixing, snatching, just one track playing etc...). That makes no sense for Algoriddim.

Now the MusicKit API is hope as I kind of understood that one can use its own player engine to play Apple Music content, including offline. If that is correct, Algoriddim (as well as others) should be able to bring us the future of Djing through streaming services and in offline mode.

The last problem to solve will be to create a standard for Djing meta-tags (cues/loops etc...) and have it stored in ID3 tags on Apple Music. That would be awesome as you would be able to set your cues/loops on one of the software and access the music and its cues/loops from any software.

I think we'll have to wait a bit longer...
