Great app converts slowly on mac. Very speedy on Windows. Most of the time the converted songs get matched in iTunes some upload

Is the best application to convert apple music EVER, I used many ways and apps with bad results, the ID tags and images are so useful, the customer service is fast and always they are improving the software

Hmm. The dev "EasyM4P" = OndeSoft. "M4P to MP3 Converter" = "iTunes Converter for Mac". They are IDENTICAL apps. Prices are also the same. The app icons are the same. Why do devs do this? It of course comes off as shady. Meanwhile, my experience is that, whatever you call it, it's clunky and annoying to use. But if you can deal with its quirks, you get DRM-free files as a result. And note that there is NO upgrade pricing. Keep an eye out of this odd trickery with other OndeSoft apps sold under other names. And NO, they don't provide any address or phone number for contact. Shady...

Awesome program. I would have paid 10x the asking price for this. I have a HUGE library. Easily 1 TB of music/album art. I signed up for apple music and they screwed up my library. When I disconnected from apple music (they were changing my album covers, I have OCD that doesn't work for me) and i lost several songs PER ALBUM. GONE. I called support and we spent hours trying to figure it out and gave them remote access to my computer. No luck my music was gone and they said I was SOL. I converted THOUSANDS of PURCHASED CD's when I got itunes back in 2009 then sold them all thinking the "cloud" was my friend. Make a long story short, I used my apple music subscription to replace all the missing songs off every album in my library then converted them and added them to the album. Done. It would have cost me THOUSANDS of dollars to fix what apple had done to my library. Instead I spent $40 and probably 100 hours of time (I had to find and delete all the songs that suddenly "could not be found"). I was SOL on all the demo CD's I had given to me by bands over the years as well as special editions. Those are gone forever. Along with every other album not available in itunes. Only complaint about this program is that I have to find and delete all the apple music files so only the ondesoft version remains. VERY TIME CONSUMING. I was able to recover thousands of songs and albums after apple destroyed my library and I couldn't be more grateful for saving me tons of cash. I had a backup available but the backup had the songs missing. I couldn't be happier with this product. I use this on my windows machine btw running windows 10. If it isn't working you just don't know what you're doing. It's a little complicated figuring it out. I thought the original got deleted when the copy was made but no. It keeps both and you have to find them and delete them (hover cursor over album and and if there's any apple music in there it will offer to "remove download"). You always want to keep the first one, that's your conversion. The other one (or more) get deleted and are the apple versions. For example: 1. Blackened- Metallica 1. Blackened- Metallica 1. Blackened- Metallica BOTTOM TWO ARE APPLE MUSIC KEEP FIRST ONE. if you do it wrong when you try to play the song it will say "file not found". BUY THIS IT's GREAT!!!!

Does not work! I have been trying to make it work for a month now! The software will keep logging you out of itunes after every 2-3 songs it converts.. then the whole process stop and you have to login to itunes again. Also, makes a lot of "blank songs" ie no music..

At first it seemed to work well, but now I end up with lots of empty audio files. Rebooting helps maybe one time..

WHY does it look almost *exactly* like TuneMobile iTunes music converter??

And WHY does it install some fake AudioJingle sound driver.

Bought this program few years ago. swapped macs. cant find code. went to site. wanted site to resend code. doesn't work. contacted support twice and no reply. very annoying after i spent weeks helping the developer troubleshoot app issues then i get no reply. So based on poor support for this app, look at other programs.

This software needs iTunes running in order to convert your songs. It also says to leave iTunes alone during the conversion because otherwise issues might occur. If your song was just a file being operated on (e.g. being compressed) then any interruptions would simply delay the outcome a little (that's how multitasking works). The fact that iTunes is playing the file during the conversion and needs to be left alone to prevent errors leads me to think the software is making an analog recording the song i.e. the analog output normally directed to the speakers is being looped into the microphone inputs and then redigitized. In addition to the usual resampling errors, you also incur the linearity errors of both the digital to analog converters and the analog to digital converters. That's just a guess - it's really no different to the age old way of undermining DRM by burning your protected music onto a CD and then importing it back into iTunes. Most people would likely be OK with this because they can't hear the difference, although there definitely is a difference.

Converts standard tracks no problem (tried Apple Lossless, AAC, MP3 and FLAC), but DRM files don't work at all. I can get a 100% completed message, but just get an empty folder as a result.

Decent converting tool but constant "play errors" as it repeatedly pings itunes for computer authorization even though your system is fully authorized. For this reason, you can't leave it to convert a list of songs and then come back to it as it will error out and every song after will error out as itunes has locked up waiting for an authorization key. You have to sit and babysit it the whole time. It also lacks type of "convert" list that lets you know where your conversions left off (with the constant play error) so you have to go song by song to find which have been converted and which haven't. Fiddly Piddly Giddly. I would pay maybe $10 max for this basic software.

Bad. It does not work. Initial tests if, but when using it several times, iTunes all the short while to other songs jumps, and do not allow to record those that you want. Each change of song, is necessary to return to iTunes to stop the random reproduction. To return to Converter, and to return to again select the subjects to record.In order to record a LP, it is necessary to make tens of attempts, to every time you are recording a subject or two, and not to erase those that already have recorded well. It jumps many them, others records

Over the past week I converted hundreds and hundred of songs from the old FairPlay format to MP3 so I could play them on my Sonos system. Ondesoft iTunes Converter converted them all and it did it very quickly and without any problems. It even handled audiobooks that were over 2 hours long. Although it gives full access to every obscure audio options, the interface is really well done; without much thinking I was able to simply select "medium, MP3" for my music and "low, MP3" for my audiobooks, comedy, and other spoken materials. It uses iTunes playlists to organize the tracks, so it was easy and obvious how to select what was going to be converted. $40 was a fair price for me, considering how easy it was to do the conversions, and how the software had NO PROBLEMs at all. There's even some documentation to get you started. It's fast. It's flexible. And it doesn't phone home or do any network chatter at all. Because they use avangate as their software store, VISA fraud protection called me to make sure I had actually authorized the charge. (I'm in the USA and avangate is a European company -- it's highly rated by the BBB and is equivalent to Kagi or Digital River), No big deal. I have no relation to the developer. I paid my money and got a good product. (I'm running OS X 10.9.5 with iTunes 11.4.)

Tried a demo of this first (thankfully) and I got locked into an almost endless cycle of OiTC asking me to close iTunes and trying to reopen it. This was followed by crash after crash, iTunes and subsequently Ondesoft's Converter. To much stress for me I'm afraid, not worth the hassle!

Those guys have no sense of privacy. Despite the fact that I have a verified PayPal account and the authorisation went successfully through they want to have a scan of my ID card and a utilisation bill. They claim it is to prevent fraud. I have refused to provide them such details just to get a registration number from them and requested to get my money back.

I just upgraded to this version and have been using 1.25.1 so my review is on that version. the program works for me and does the job it is supposed to do. Most of my music is DRM free because I buy other places. I do have the remnants of protected music from my early Apple days so that is what I am converting. The program works as advertised for me. I am running the latest version of ML on my late 2009 27" iMac. Ease of use is clouded by the sheer number of options available. It can be a bit daunting if you are not knowledgeable about the settings. I have also found that it seems to work better if you don't try to convert too many songs at a time. I normally just do one album at a time. Overall, the program has worked just fine for me. As I mentioned knowing a bit about the different settings is very helpful.

So far, this software simply doesn't work for me. I would like to clear the DRM on two music albums I have purchased but somehow I can no longer access. This program just does not run on my OS 10.6.8 Have emailed the developer - no response yet. I am hopeful the problem can be sorted.
