  • Get access to so many different tracks and styles.

However, there are some limitations:

  • Djay still requires a working internet connection at all times, and when WiFi is disconnected, even downloaded Apple Music songs won't play!
  • It doesn’t support recording mixes, neural mixing, or stems for Apple Music songs.

Option 2. Download Apple Music to MP3/FLAC as local music files
