How to set up iTunes library integration in Serato Studio

If you have your music organised in iTunes on your computer and wish to use these files in your Serato Studio library, you can! Your iTunes library and playlists can be found under the Serato DJ Library tab in Serato Studio.


If you have "Show iTunes Library" ticked in the Serato Studio Setup > Library preferences but your iTunes library is not displaying in Serato Studio, you will need to make some adjustments to your iTunes preferences:

  1. Open iTunes and select 'Preferences' from the iTunes menu bar drop down
  2. Next, navigate to the 'Advanced' preferences tab
  3. Under this location make sure that "Share iTunes Library XML with other applications" preference is ticked

Open Serato Studio - you should now find that your iTunes library and playlists appear in an "iTunes" crate under the "Serato DJ Library" tab.

NOTE: Files from the Apple Music streaming service are DRM protected and are exclusive to iTunes and iOS devices - these will not show in Serato Studio. For a full list of Serato Studio supported audio file formats see the Serato Studio manual - Intro : Supported Audio File Formats.
