"I want to play Apple Music tracks on Rekordbox, how to convert Apple Music songs into AAC files so it become compatible for Rekordbox? Is there any way to convert Apple Music songs to unprotected AAC?" A question from reddit
AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is an audio coding standard for lossy digital audio compression and is intended to be a successor to the MP3 format. AAC encoded audio files can have various extensions, including .aac, .m4p, and .m4a. However, M4P is a protected AAC file extension, typically used by Apple iTunes purchased songs with DRM (digital rights management), while M4A is an audio extension of unprotected AAC files.
Like other streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music adds DRM protection to streaming music, which brings a lot of inconvenience. You cannot directly transfer Apple Music files protected by DRM encryption to an unauthorized MP3 player or other mobile device. If you are not an Apple Music subscriber, you can only listen to streaming music while the network is connected. You currently have an Apple Music membership ($9.99 per month for individuals/$14.99 per month for up to 6 people), and if you cancel your subscription one day, all downloaded Apple Music tracks will also disappear after the membership expires. You can't save them permanently. Hence, you might want to convert M4P Apple Music to AAC(.m4a)since M4A brings more freedom and convenience.
