Make sure the song is downloaded to your device. Go into the iTunes app, browse to the song, and check to see if the cloud icon with the down arrow is showing. If so, tap the icon to download the song. This should make it available in Rush.  Mike

iTunes music includes copy protection that precludes the songs from being used in a video editing project. Often trying to use an iTunes song will trigger an error code.

 

Amazon mp3s don't have this issue, FWIW.

Mike, I am sorry to say the itunes process above is not working. I purchased all of my songs in my library and I can't get them into Rush.

 Just to illustrate what I mentioned above, here is a series of screen shots showing iTunes during a download, and the resulting view in Rush showing the one song I downloaded as “not” grayed out.

Hi everyone!! I'm having this same issue and I've checked all my songs to make they're downloaded and I still can't add them to my projects. The only songs available are from A Perfect Circle. Does anyone have any idea as to what else I can try?

I'm new to Premiere Rush and I've been having the same issue as most. Spent over an hour on the phone with Adobe RUSH techincal support who called in a Tier 2 tech on my case. They are telling me that Apple Music files are in a MP4 format and that's why it's not importing to RUSH. They asked me to call Apple and see if I can get all my music files in a MP3 format which will be able to import into RUSH!  What Says You All?  Sounds like a bug to me in RUSH!

Just got off the phone with Apple Support and they assured me that it's NOT a format issue between MP3 or MP4,with video editors as in the case with Premiere RUSH, it's a copyright thing. As an Apple Music customer, I may listen to any/all of my Apple Music playlists, albums, artists across ANY/ALL my Apple devices which is a lot of devicess. But, when I go to push any of these music files there are copyright LOCKS on these files which PREVENT opening or importing music files into any editors/other software or platforms which are not licensed to play the music content. So, There's That!!! Next Please!!

I can added the songs that I purchased years ago however I cannot do the same with recently purchased songs. Have you sorted it out?

Are you positive these are purchased, and not downloaded with an Apple Music subscription? Apple Music songs contain DRM and are not playable outside of iTunes.

Gonna be real honest. 
this makes me want to snap my phone in half.

I've been creating on this app thinking the whole time my iTunes music would pull right over. 
ITS DOESNT!

If you want to use an Apple Music file in Rush, you need to purchase the song. Once you purchase it, you will be able to download the non-DRM version of it. If you have the non-DRM (purchased) version, it will import seamlessly into Rush.
