Beatsource tracks being switched to Tidal when added to My Music

I’m having an issue with djay Pro 5.1 (also was happening in 5.0.4) where I will search for a track on Beatsource, drag the track from Beatsource into a playlist on my music, and then either it will get added to the playlist but source will show “Tidal” or I’ll get the pop up telling me I can’t add Tidal tracks to a playlist with songs from other streaming services. Keep in mind, I’m trying to add these Beatource tracks to a playlist that already contains NO Tidal tracks (all Beatsource or local files). I’ve logged in and out of both Beatsource and Tidal multiple times and still get the issue. It’s even happended when I’ve been logged out of my Tidal account. It’s one thing for Tidal’s obnoxious restrictions with stems and mixing sources to affect the app when I’m using Tidal, but now it’s messing things up when there is absolutely ZERO Tidal use. I’d honeslty rather see Algoriddim remove support for Tidal altogether at this point.


It’s not obnoxious to the copyright holders.

Won’t someone PLEASE think of the poor copyright holders? :sob:

So if you made and released music, you wouldn’t mind getting ripped off?

How exactly am I being ripped off in your hypothetical situation?

I have the same exact issue. I have reported it and was told basically that they have bigger fish to fry

@DJ_Hooded_Wolf Honestly, I shouldn’t have to explain it. If you don’t know about copyright and that people want to protect their work, it’s not my job to educate you.

Hi @DJ_Hooded_Wolf,

Can you please try to capture a video of this issue, upload it to your Dropbox/Google Drive, enable the necessary sharing permissions, then share a link to the video here? I can then share this with the engineering team to see if they can replicate it on their end. Thanks!

Here is the link to the video.


Thanks for the video @DJ_Hooded_Wolf. This is very helpful.

  1. I’ll forward this to the dev team to see if they can reproduce it and if they have any recommendations.
  2. In the meantime, can you please try logging out of Tidal within djay and repeating the process to see if the songs are still being pulled from Tidal instead of Beatsource?
