The roon software running on the Nucleus is Linux, with the music files inside the Nucleus being flac, mp4 or Mp3.
My computer is a mac, would I be able to run my music files on the Nucleus through BeaTunes which would be on Mac. I presume that there's no Linux version of BeaTunes, and if there were is it possible to run it from the Nucleus?
I've probably worked out that it can't be done, have you come to the same conclusion?

beaTunes can either operate on iTunes/Music.app libraries or simple file system folders that contain your music (see this article). If I understand correctly, iTunes/Music.app is not an option for you and your music resides on this Nucleus.
To import playlists generated by beaTunes, you'd have to right-click on a beaTunes playlist and export it as m3u8 or m3u and store it on your Nucleus drive using relative paths (beaTunes will ask you about this). The latter is important—with absolute paths Roon won't be able to find the files. For this to work, you would also have to turn playlist importing in your Roon config on. See https://kb.roonlabs.com/Importing_playlists#M3U_Files for details.
