How to Add Amazon Music to Traktor DJ
Traktor DJ is a software and hardware package developed by Native Instruments, designed primarily for DJs. It's used for both professional and recreational DJing, allowing users to mix and manipulate digital audio files. The software offers beatmatching, tempo control, looping, effects, and more features.
Traktor DJ 2 is a specific version of the Traktor software, which is more streamlined and simplified and designed for beginners and those new to DJing. It's available on various platforms, including iOS, macOS, and Windows. It is integrated with SoundCloud Go+, and you can use your favorite playlists in the app directly. However, this is also the only music streaming platform currently cooperating, which may be distressing for Amazon Music users. Don’t worry! Traktor DJ 2 allows users to use local audio files, so today, we will learn how to add Amazon music to Traktor DJ 2 for mixing!
We are currently in an era dominated by streaming subscription services, where individuals gain access to vast libraries through paid subscriptions. For DJ enthusiasts, the crucial factor is whether these resources can be used for mixing. Some streaming platforms have partnered with different DJ software, such as Beatport Streaming, Beatsource Streaming, Soundcloud Go+, TIDAL, among others, collaborating with popular DJ software like Rekordbox, Serato DJ, Traktor DJ, Virtual DJ, Engine DJ, and more.
As a popular music platform providing access to over 100 million songs, Amazon Music has rarely collaborated with commonly used DJ software. This is regrettable, and to date, Amazon Music has only partnered with Engine DJ, enabling users to browse, search, and play top music charts and curated playlists using an Amazon Unlimited account on Engine DJ hardware. Supported devices include Denon DJ SC LIVE 2, Denon DJ SC LIVE 4, and Numark Mixstream Pro+.
This means that Amazon Music does not directly support logging in and mixing on Traktor DJ. Hence, we must explore an alternate way of utilizing the software by importing local audio files. Amazon Music is DRM protected, which implies that regardless of Prime or Unlimited subscription, you can only download temporary files for offline playback. Therefore, we need to download Amazon Music to our local computer beforehand. This is preparation for importing into Traktor DJ. To achieve this, you require a dependable third-party tool, which we will introduce in the subsequent section.
