How to Import Amazon Music to GarageBand

A great digital resource for Apple users, GarageBand is pre-installed on over one billion Macs, iPhones, and iPads. With this tool, it's easy to learn, play, record, compose and share your work around the world.

And whenever you start a new project with this tool, the source of the music is a very important part of it. But because GarageBand was developed by Apple, this means that it can only accept music purchased from iTunes or other local music files on your device. Can Amazon Music be successfully imported into GarageBand and used? You don't have to worry, in this article, we will analyze the possibilities of adding Amazon music to Garageband and how to download Amazon music locally and then import it into Garageband for editing. Read on and find out more about it.

Part 1: Can I Import Amazon Music to Garageband?

You can import music that you have purchased from iTunes to use in GarageBand or other music files that you have saved on your Mac. Supported formats are: .AIFF, .CAF, .WAV, .AAC (except protected AAC files), Apple Lossless, .MP3, and . MIDI. Unfortunately, GarageBand does not support other streaming music services, including Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, etc. The result of this is that we lose a rich source of songs, some of which may be difficult to find on the internet unless we buy them one by one on iTunes. It is also possible to use this method as long as you have the budget to do so.

Other than that, it needs to be explained why songs from streaming music cannot be imported into GarageBand for use. Some people will have some questions, even if you are a paid member and have downloaded the target songs to your phone or computer using the offline listening feature, can't they be imported this way? Yes! To be precise, these songs are DRM protected. They exist in a special format and are only available to the corresponding music app for reading. Not only can they not be imported into GarageBand, but other DJ programs, video editors, and other software cannot support them either. So, to solve this problem, we would like to introduce you to a simple, easy, and affordable solution. You can download your favorite songs from Amazon Music and use them freely. Read on!
