  • Fat Cat Software - PowerTunes Help - Using multiple libraries with iTunes Match
    you currently have open It doesn t automatically download all the new tracks by default but it adds entries for the tracks to your library and you can later download the actual song files for those tracks you wish to download Note that this applies to any library with iTunes Match enabled either on the same Mac or on different Macs If you plan on using PowerTunes to keep different libraries with separate content then you will probably not want to enable iTunes Match on more than one library If you do enable iTunes Match on multiple libraries when iTunes updates content from the cloud tracks from your different libraries will end up intermingled with each other which defeats the purpose of separating them in the first place For example if you have a Blues library and a Classical library and you enable iTunes Match in both libraries then iTunes will end up adding your blues tracks to your classical library and your classical tracks to your blues library which is probably not what you want it to do A single Apple ID can have a maximum of 10 devices Macs iPhones iPads etc registered with it at once for iTunes Match This registration is per machine though not per library so enabling iTunes Match on multiple libraries on a single machine will only count as a single device as far as registrations are concerned However a given Mac can only be registered with one Apple ID at a time This means that on your Mac you cannot have one library with iTunes Match enabled using one Apple ID and a second library with iTunes Match enabled using a second Apple ID All libraries on a single Mac must all use the same Apple ID for iTunes Match even if
