Part 1. Djay Pro Spotify not Working: Best Solution
Let's come straight to the point. If you have a favorite song on Spotify, and you want to get it into Logic for remixing, then you require a third-party music converter to help you reach the goal.
The reason is simple. Each track from Spotify is protected and prevented from re-editing and remixing in an unauthorized software. Logic Pro X doesn't get the Spotify integration. So users are not available to add Spotify songs to Logic Pro X for mixing.
