Ableton's name is always on the lists of the best DJ software, whether it is Ableton Live9 or the newer Ableton Live. So, there is no doubt that Ableton is one of the best DJ software you can find in the market. Unlike some home-use DJ software, Virtual DJ for example, it focuses more on live performance and that's why we call it "Ableton Live".

When you embark on your music mixing career, you will realize that it's impossible to buy all the songs from iTunes because that can cost you more than what you spend on the DJ software. Songs from Apple Music are at the same high quality. If you are interested in how to import Apple Music to Ableton Live 10, you'll need a DRM removal solution – ViWizard Audio Converter is the one.
