comment How to star-rate “Apple Music” files in iTunes on OS X
Oh also another observation. It's odd that this ratings feature doesn't work, because as soon as you add the song to your library - even leaving it on the cloud - you can rate it. I guess they don't want to link the ratings to a specific person if that person doesn't feel it's worth having in their library. But then why would you rate it if it wasn't? Seems like Apple could build up a great crowdsourced ratings library if they allowed direct star ratings of tracks regardless of library status. shrug

BAH! The stars all disappear as soon as you leave that screen to another of Apple Music content. They do not persist when you return. Drat.

comment How to star-rate “Apple Music” files in iTunes on OS X
Yeah it was an accidental find, I was shocked to see the star ratings at all, and even more so that I could edit them, but ONLY with more than one selected! So it obviously works, I wonder why Apple doesn't just plain let us star rate cloud music? Seems like it would be useful for them too, they could aggregate all that crowd-sourced data and show it to people so we could all see what the greater world thinks of a given track. Maybe it's coming in the future and this is evidence of a partial implementation?

A screenshot won't really show the steps, only the end result. But the steps are simple - 1. Go to the 'New' tab in iTunes and select something from Apple Music. 2. Select at least 2 songs 3. Right-click one of them and choose Get Info 4. Edit star ratings.

Yep, this is exactly what I had surmised... which is why I was shocked to discover that I could actually star-rate items in the cloud, as long as I select more than one. Clearly the capability exists... wish Apple would just enable it as it's extremely useful! So then is there no way to star-rate a single song in the cloud?

Maybe it's changed, but I'm seeing Hear is $19.99. May give it a try since SoundBunny apparently won't work with an external audio interface.

Doesn't address the actual question, this is just how to adjust the overall Mac volume.

Oh for the love of... somehow, the password on the mail server for this account had gotten changed. NO idea how. Changed it back again and voila - everything works. Go figure!
