How to dis-associate Vox and iTunes?


I installed Vox on my iMac (2017, High Sierra) and initially had Vox open my iTunes. I’ve since decided to keep them separate - it is easier to find my HD audio that way.

How do I tell Vox to stop loading iTunes? I have attempted to delete/reinstall Vox, but each new installed version finds all of the iTunes music.

Appreciate any help.


Library that's NOT iTunes


Thanks for posting here!

We got a few tricks to get it done, but we are very curious and would like to know why are you looking for this kind of option?

The point is that iTunes library has an individual tab in VOX Music Player for Mac (iTunes tab), made especially for this purpose (Not mixing iTunes library with other music sources)!

Back to the case, here are some steps to get it done!

First of all, please make sure this option in VOX Preferences is un-flagged:


After that, close the VOX app and Run a script to reset VOX -

When reset is successfully finished, open Terminal and do a command:

defaults write com.coppertino.Vox iTunesIsInitialSyncPerformed 0

Start VOX and it`s done! Your iTunes library will not load to VOX app!

Tell me how it goes?


The reason I want to disassociate Vox from iTunes is that my music library is almost entirely in FLAC, which iTunes does not support. Nor does it support HiRes audio files.

So, as a follow-up, having disassociated from iTunes is there a way to link Vox to my FLAC library. I use the folder as my watch folder for Vox Cloud, but I see no way to make it available as a Vox library – library choices are only Vox Cloud or iTunes.



The best way to make you FLAC Library associated with VOX is to upload it to VOX Cloud.
This way you will get your FLAC Library available from any Apple device you got.

If you just want to play your music files - drag and drop them in VOX app!


I am uploading the FLAC files to Vox Cloud (although that is a very slow process). When I am using my iMac, will Vox recognize that the cloud files are already on my hard drive? Seems strange to download the files when they already are on my hard drive.



Yes, VOX will do that!

Anyway, VOX Cloud will act as cloud backup for all your music files, as well as, a cloud storage for streaming and accessing your music files in VOX Cloud from various Apple devices connected to your VOX account.
