Virtual DJ, short for VDJ, is a music mixer software DJs use to remix songs and create something cool. Virtual DJ is the best choice for most of the DJs, for it has maintained the champion among all DJ software for the past 20 years, with no other competitor comes close. Apple Music has a abundant resource of songs so many VDJ users asking if they can import Apple Music songs to VDJ to mix. The answer will be no but yes.

Why You Can't Add Apple Music to Virtual DJ Diretly?

If you've ever tried to import Apple Music into Virtual DJ, you will find that though those files can be recognized, they cannot be played. To answer these two questions, the information of FairPlay has to be brought in. FairPlay is a digital right management scheme launched by Apple Inc. to protect the copyright of their media contents on iTunes and Apple Music. Apple Music is in M4P, a DRM-ed audio format, and M4P format cannot be played on any non-licensed media player other than Apple Music. That's the exactly why you can't directly play Apple Music on Virtual DJ. You may consider taking a detour- using ViWizard DRM Audio Converter.
