The Beatsource LINK streaming service for open-format DJs is now supported by Soundiiz and TuneMyMusic, two separate services that allow users to transfer their playlists between music streaming platforms. On this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx shows us how to use the two apps to transfer playlists from Spotify to Beatsource LINK.
Using Soundiiz or TuneMyMusic, Beatsource LINK subscribers can transfer their playlists from services like Spotify and Apple Music to Beatsource LINK, and instantly DJ with them. SoundCloud, TIDAL, YouTube, Amazon Music, Deezer, and Google Play Music are also supported.
Soundiiz offers two plans: free and premium at $3 a month. The free version lets DJs transfer one playlist at a time, whereas the premium version enables DJs to transfer multiple playlists at once and sync them.
A paid version of TuneMyMusic enables users to sync playlists between services. It costs $4.50 a month or $2 a month when billed annually.
