Part 2. How to Use TIDAL to Virtual DJ without Subscription

If there an alternative solution to use TIDAL with Virtual DJ without an eligible subscription? The answer is still YES! Virtual DJ supports local audio files that're compatible with the software. However, since Tidal music tracks are protected in Digital Rights Management, DJs will need to convert and download them into a compatible audio format with Virtual DJ such as MP3, WMA, OGG, MP4, AAC, CDA, WAV and others. And the whole process will involve a powerful conversion tool called ViWizard Tidal Music Converter.
