Mixing songs and creating playlists directly from Spotify using Virtual DJ has been a valuable feature for music enthusiasts. However, recent changes have disrupted this convenience as Spotify ceased support for third-party DJ software, cutting the direct link between Spotify and Virtual DJ. Even if you download Spotify songs and try to add them to Virtual DJ, it won’t work because of the strict DRM protection, which encrypts the downloaded files and makes them unplayable in Virtual DJ.
So, how can you use Spotify with Virtual DJ? In this article, we’ll introduce you to TuneFab Spotify Music Converter, a professional third-party tool designed to remove these barriers and enable you to use Spotify with Virtual DJ easily.
Can You Use Spotify with Virtual DJ?
Until July 1, 2020, Spotify had seamlessly integrated with Virtual DJ, allowing users to mix and create playlists directly from their Spotify accounts. However, this changed when Spotify stopped supporting third-party DJ software (with the exception of Pacemaker), making it impossible to use Spotify music directly in Virtual DJ.
If you’re considering downloading Spotify songs to use in Virtual DJ, you also face a major challenge: Spotify songs are DRM-protected and can only be used on licensed platforms and devices. In addition, Virtual DJ primarily supports music formats such as MP3, M4A, AAC, and WAV, while Spotify uses the OGG format.
To overcome these obstacles and make Spotify work well with Virtual DJ, you need a professional Spotify ripper. This specialized tool not only removes DRM protection, but also converts Spotify songs to the format you need to ensure seamless integration with Virtual DJ.
