Add Tidal Music and Playlist to Traktor DJ

Traktor from Native Instruments is probably the most popular DJ rig emulator software. It is an application for mixing and creating remixes. The utility provides a large selection of special effects and useful tools for working with music compositions. There is also a function for recording audio from external sources. Cross-platform, with streaming baked in, and a recommendation engine, it is already doing many of the things “big” Traktor can’t.

Add Tidal Music and Playlist to Traktor DJ

Many music hobbyists, especially streaming service subscribers (such as Tidal), are still wondering about how to add streaming music to Traktor DJ. As you know, not so long ago, Rekordbox (the popular DJ software that is a competitor of Traktor) got a new update that broadens the range of features for its users. With this update, Rekordbox now works with Tidal. However, does Traktor work with Tidal? Unfortunately, Traktor does not support any music service similar to Tidal.

However, today we will introduce an easy way to add Tidal songs/playlists to Traktor DJ for music mixing.
