M4A/AAC files are supported out of the box on Windows and macOS.

Mixxx imports your iTunes library from a read-only XML file exported by iTunes. This file contains a copy of your actual iTunes library. Please check the iTunes documentation about when this file gets updated.

You may also add your iTunes music folder as an additional folder to your Mixxx library. Then rescan your Mixxx library and access those files directly.

Can updated tags in files be re-imported? Do I need to Import Metadata now? It seems to be empty after editing.
Thanks.

Import Metadata from File updates the track's metadata by reading from the file's tags.

The metadata is only replaced after the import was successful. If reading of the file tags fails, the track's current metadata as stored in the library is preserved.
