Okay everyone. This seems like a no brainer, and I think I had this figured out under iTunes, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to disable Apple Music from starting and playing every damn track I download to use in video projects. It's driving me mad! I tried googling but could not figure it out.
I have selected the file and in the finder I open the file info.
You can choose to have all files with a specific extension open with QT instaid.
Less of a hassle than having Music app opening the file.
You can do this for all typoes: .aif, .wav, mp3
Sorry for the misunderstanding. These are stock audio tracks from a service I use. I am able to download them, test them in my timeline and then only pay a license for the ones I end up using. They have nothing to to with iTunes, apple and I don't even use apple ,music or iTunes.

When I purchase music and download it, it doesn't play automatically for me. There is no setting in Music to turn that on or off.
Any time I download ANY wav or mp3 file, Apple Music app automatically launches and starts playing. I think Albo has it right. t's just been while and I forgot that solution. I just find it so invasive and annoying that Apple Music would be set up that way by default.
