DJ.Studio can also connect directly to your iTunes library to import tracks.

This means you can use your iTunes library without needing to import all the tracks.

Note, that you can only use software connections in the installed app version of DJ.Studio, not the browser version.

On Windows, this is called iTunes, on Mac it's called Apple Music - look for the relevant option.

Whats the difference between iTunes and Apple Music?

iTunes and Apple Music are two slightly different services. Apple Music is a term used to describe both Apple's music streaming service, and the iTunes-style management service on Mac platforms (which used to be called iTunes).

On windows, iTunes is still called iTunes, and Apple Music is a separate service for streaming music.

Why can't I mix with Apple Music Files?

You can mix with Apple Music files you have purchased, however you cannot use the files you downloaded via the streaming subscription for Apple Music. Because you don't technically own these files, you're renting them, you cannot use them for any re-recording purposes. This is a legal limitation of Apple Music's DRM.
