With piracy reaching out to the peaks, corporations from around the world started working on methods on how to prevent or battle piracy. Among many such attempts were facilities that would let you enjoy free music but you couldn't download, except for a payment that you would have to make should you wish to download music offline on your phone or laptop. Among many such facilities, some of the famous ones were Saavn and Wynk Music. Talking about downloading music for listening to it offline, you could only store the music in the app, which means you couldn't simply pull it out of your app, shove it all into a USB drive, copy it on to your laptop or desktop or maybe on to your friend's tablet. No, none of that was possible for the sole reason that should these apps let you do it, the very purpose of having such services would have been defeated. People would be uploading genuine music for free on Torrents and on websites and piracy would continue to exist.

What is M4P and why should I convert

Recently, among other things, Apple came with one such service too, however, with much better quality and with the guarantee of Apple. Even before the advent of Apple Music, people downloaded music from the iTunes Store – genuine music at great prices. But now, Apple Music is a replica of services like Wynk and Saavn, the only thing is that you can share it with your family members (if you are an Apple user, you probably know what I am talking about). But again, you can only keep the music to yourself. But the method applied by Apple, as you can expect, is different. It won't restrain you from copying and distributing the music. The funda was to have an altogether different file format for such music that you have downloaded on your Mac or iPhone with your Apple Music subscription. So even if you have downloaded the music, have copied it on to your Hard drive or USB drive, it's of no use to you for the sole reason that you can't play it anywhere else except on iTunes. Additionally, these files are DRM protected. The format these music files have is M4P. Hope you know what this article is all about.

Features of M4P to MP3 Converter

The M4P to MP3 Converter is loaded with features.

Remove DRM from M4P Files

The M4P to MP3 Converter lets you remove the DRM (Digital Right Management) protection from the music you've downloaded from iTunes legally. With this application, you can remove DRM legally so you can get rid of copy-protection from these files and can load these files on other computers or digital media players.

Batch conversion in M4P to MP3 Converter

A feature that you could've easily expected on this device was Batch conversion. No, it isn't a technical jargon. All it means is converting a number of files from one format to another so you don't have to select each file one by one, set them up and do them all individually. Imaging the peril you'd bring to yourself that way? Well, M4P to MP3 Converter saves you again. Now you can convert multiple iTunes Music Collections in one go. You can select several music files, or several playlists or even the entire iTunes Music library to convert them on a single click. Besides, M4P to MP3 Converter for Mac offers you up to 16x faster conversion speed, a speed that the developers of this application claim would be beyond your imagination. However, you won't have to compromise with the audio quality due to such batch conversion. Worry not, thus.

Adjust advance audio parameters

Using this software for music conversion, you can adjust advance audio parameters before you get them all converted in a batch. You can check and choose the bit rate for the files you are going to convert, the sample rate, the codec and the audio channels so the music you've converted are just the way you wanted. Besides, it is noteworthy that while choosing low bitrate and sample rate may save space on your disk, it may as well lower down the quality. The choice is yours; you've been given the choice.

No loss in quality

The developers claim that there will be no whatsoever loss in the quality in the converted media files. However, it is up to you. If you want to reduce the disk space that the converted files are going to take, you may as well lower down the bit rate and sample rate and that would help you save the space. But at the same time, there will be considerable loss in quality. Of course, you can't expect the app to compress the music without letting the music lose its quality at all.

Convenient Search functions

The best feature I found in this app was that it syncs with your iTunes without hassles. You don't even need to drag and drop music from your iTunes or media folders on your Mac. All you have to do is select music from the panel available on your next, which looks exactly like it looks on iTunes itself. You can choose the music you want to convert. Whatever could be easier?

Overall verdict

This is a premium app. And if you are an Apple Music subscriber, you don't need to explain the curiousity this article would have brought for you. Downloading music is so much fun but distributing it among all your smartphones, tablets and laptops would be so much fun especially when you're doing it the legal way. The M4P to MP3 Converter is small in size, just about some 7 megabytes. And should you be willing to avail the amazing tech support the company offers, you must download the app and register. That would however require you to pay near about $40.
