PCDJ DEX 3 is a famous live performance DJ software. DEX 3 and DEX 3 RE is designed for pros and beginner respectively. PCDJ considerately offers some music services for users to mix music: SoundCloud Go+, Party Tyme Karaoke, and Karaoke Cloud Pro. However, none of them is satisfying enough. If you are a subscriber to Apple Music and you've got plenty of playlists there, you must be wondering if you can use Apple Music songs as djfeder46 does.
