MatchUpgrade 1.1.1

A minimalist Mac OS X application that offers you the possibility to quickly and effortlessly upgrade your iTunes music library to 256 kbps.
The iTunes Match service allows you to store your music collection in the Cloud in order to have it available on all your devices. The service is available with an yearly subscription, and allows you to store up to 25.000 tracks, more if your music is purchased via the iTunes Store.

The best part is that iTunes Match scans your music library and matches the tracks with items that are already in the cloud because they are for sale within the store. As a result, even if your track has a lower quality, via iCloud you will be able to play 256-Kbps AAC tracks.

Effortlessly rejuvenate your music library by using 256 Kbps tracks

MatchUpgrade is a minimalist and streamlined Mac OS X application that detects the tracks that are included in your local music library and have a better quality within the cloud. At the same time, the app is able to upgrade the tracks, while preserving metadata such as the play counts, the artwork, or the lyrics.

Noteworthy is that the procedure also works for songs that have not been purchased via the iTunes store: you can upgrade tracks that have been extracted from CDs, or that have been purchased from other stores.

Connect to your iTunes Match service and quickly upgrade your music collection from the cloud

To be able to use MatchUpgrade, you must make sure that you are logged in to your iTunes store account within the iTunes application, and that the iTunes Match service is turned on: note that a subscription is required, and that you might need to update the service.

The next step is to launch the MatchUpgrade application and follow the on-screen instructions: the app scans your library, detects the tracks that can be upgraded, and then proceeds to performing the switch.

Uncomplicated solution for improving the quality of your music collection via iTunes Match

MatchUpgrade is a great tool if you are using iTunes Match to backup and sync your music collection between multiple devices: you can easily upgrade your local tracks to the 256 Kbps version available in the cloud, while preserving the play counts, the album artworks, and other associated metadata.
