Actually, the Apple Music membership page says that service brings your iTunes library to iCloud, too
It does say Apple Music and iTunes Match are "independent but complementary," but I think I'm like you — I can't figure out why I'd want iTunes Match if I'm paying for Apple Music.
The only benefit of Match is the $2 a month price point over the $10 a ...
To download all your music from iCloud:
Select all or select the tracks you want to download
Right click on the selected items
NOTE: iTunes 12.2 does not have a "Download" option. When you right-click on the selected items you will need to select "Make Available Offline" to download the items from iCloud
I just went into Preferences > General Ratings in iTunes 12.2, OS Yosemite and it gives you the option of the old Stars, Hearts, or both. I just went back to Stars...one click for all my library songs.
You will no longer be able to download like you currently do, and in effect, iTunes will act like Match was never on.
You will be able to keep any songs you downloaded, though. So if you upgraded files you uploaded that matched to iTunes-Plus-type files, then you keep those once it cancels.
No. This Apple support document details what can and cannot be shared with family sharing. In particular, there is a list of items that cannot be shared:
There are a few things that you can't share:
Songs added to iTunes Match from outside the iTunes Store
Items that are no longer available on the iTunes Store
Items that ...
You are unable to down- or upload Music to iTunes Match
So be careful:
Before iTunes Match is expiring, download all your Music from the
iCloud (iTunes Match).
So, only the music you bought through iTunes is accessible.
Music which you matched through iTunes Match is lost, and cannot redownload on any device.
Only the files you have on your hard ...
There could be a corruption in your music library that is preventing the 'sync' to finish.
On your iPhone, turn iTunes Match off, then open Settings > General > Usage > (wait for usage to populate) > Music >
tap Edit and then the red remove icon.
Restart your phone
When your phone is back on, open Music to ensure its empty. If its not, complete the above ...
You will want to download a copy of anything you wish before letting the subscription lapse if you don't otherwise have a copy of the music and playlists on a machine that is backed up.
The match provides playlist syncing, so your iTunes will act just like it does when not connected to the network. You will only be able to play songs that are cached or ...
Yes - you can delete all your music files and then depend on the cloud.
The other answers about lots of clicking to delete or re-download the songs are not correct as there's no need to click 10k times to download all your files. Select-All, right click, Download. Ta da!
The only downside is uploads can deduplicate songs and not need to upload the ...
In short, no. When you turn on iTunes Match on your phone, nothing happens automatically. The key setting is in Settings -> Music:
Show All Music - if this is turned on, all music that you've uploaded to iTunes Match appears in the Music app on your iPhone. However, this music is not actually present in your phone's storage. If Show All Music is turned ...
This is not possible. iTunes Match will continue to fill up your storage space as you download tracks locally on the phone through it. I believe it will trim songs once the space is full, to clear off the least-played material.
If you would like, you can manage your storage in a few ways:
Go to Settings > General > Usage > Music. Here you can clear all ...
I changed the file type to 'Audiobook', (Right click on the file in iTunes, Get Info, Options, then change 'media kind' to audiobook') and then it allowed me to drag and drop the file on to my iPhone in iTunes.
Then, in the Music app on the iPhone, tap 'More' in the bottom right corner, and 'audiobooks' will appear in the list.
Took about an hour of faffing ...
I have observed a skip limit being enforced - after 5 rapid skips on some of the canned stations, one is left. This matches Apple's list of common questions that states 6 skips per channel in an hour is the current limit.
Also, the skip control seems to be disabled for some narrated tracks like the Guest DJ when the artist is speaking. There's nothing in ...
I had the same problem with iOS 9. I mistakenly asked my iPhone to download 4,000 tunes and could not stop it. The apple genius (online chat) was not able to help me. I eventually found a solution:
Go to the Music app
You should have a grey bar monitoring the downloads near the top of the screen, tap on it
Here you can see all the downloads - do not ...
I just have the same exact problem. It's a bug in iOS. If you go to iTunes App on your iOS device, you will see a Downloads section. There you will see all pending iTunes Match downloads. It's a pain if you have thousands of songs to delete them from this download queue one by one. So here's how to squash this bug.
You absolutely don't need to reset your ...
Just spoke to Sr. Apple Support staff. There is no official way to do this without turning off iTunes Match, selecting the content you want moved to either the iPhone or the iPad (in iTunes), syncing and then turning iTunes Match back on. While not a great solution, that is the official word.
They're two different services according to Apple: http://www.apple.com/music/membership/
The relevant text is:
Does Apple Music work with iTunes Match?
Yes. Apple Music and iTunes Match are independent but complementary
iTunes Match brings your iTunes library to the Cloud, so all your music (until 25k songs) ...
Oldish question now but Apple now have a good overview of the main differences here: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204962
To summarise: Apple Music and iTunes Match both give you an "iCloud Music Library" which can be populated in one of three ways: with music matched from your original local music collection, with music uploaded from your collection if ...
The icon you're getting (i.e. a single Cloud with a diagonal slash from top left to bottom right) means your song isn’t eligible to be uploaded to your iCloud library.
For example, this can happen if the song file is larger than 200 MB, or if it's encoded at 96 Kbps or less.

There are a few confusing responses here, so let's clarify: if you are going to let iTunes Match expire, make sure you have downloaded the music that is in the cloud to your local hard drive first. Once it is there and you turn off iTunes Match, those items will be left untouched on your computer. You will no longer has access to what was in the cloud.
In general it's recommended to have one computer account per user (in your case one for your sister and one for yourself), each with its own settings, home folder, iTunes library etc. This also takes care of separating mail, calendars, iTunes Match settings etc. without having to go through a lot of loops.
In addition you need a separate AppleID for each ...
The least destructive approach I've found is to:
On an iOS device, force- or long-press on the song in question in the Music app, and select Delete from Library.
On the Mac, wait for the iCloud Status to change to Removed.
On the Mac, right click the track and choose Add to iCloud Music Library.
Doing it this way ensures that the song is never removed from ...
iTunes will not read the tags that MP3Gain uses to set the volume. iTunes stores Sound Check volume information in the iTunNORM tag.
If all of your music is in MP3 format, you could try qNormal.
However, if you've enabled iTunes Match and have a mix of MP3 and AAC files, you could try the commercial product beaTunes. It has a Windows version.
One tap on a download icon will download an entire playlist of songs onto the local storage of the device. It doesn't matter if the playlist is a normal one or a smart playlist or a genius mix that you assemble on the go. You can also download albums, individual songs, everything by one artist, etc...
Furthermore, You can easily toggle between showing all ...
