NoteBurner iTunes DRM Audio Converter can help you listen to iTunes audio on various devices by converting them to other formats and removing their DRM protection. In this respect, the tool supports converting various Mac formats, such as Apple Music files, audiobooks and iTunes music, to commonly used formats, like MP3, ACC, FLAC, and WAV.
The application has an easy-to-use interface and a very simple workflow. All you need to do is to import the files to convert from iTunes and proceed to convert. Luckily, this operation can be done in batches, which saves a lot of effort. Regrettably, it is not possible to preview their contents.
Output parameters may be set via the Preferences window. Among the output parameters, you can set the desired quality and output format. Likewise, the converter lets you organize the resulting files in various ways. In this respect, you can create a naming pattern based on the tags. By the way, the original tags are kept when you pick MP3 and ACC. Likewise, the output files may be arranged according to their artist, album or a combination of both. While this approach avoids the necessity to configure output every time you intend to convert audio, it has some limitations, like the impossibility to convert the files on the input list to different formats.
The converter works quite fast and without causing noticeable losses to sound quality, except when the output quality is set to be lower than that of the source file. Yet, it is a shame that this application comes with no editing features whatsoever, which are usually available in other converters.
All in all, NoteBurner iTunes DRM Audio Converter is a good choice if you need to listen to DRM-protected songs and audio books on other devices and players while you are offline. The product is free to try but, in such case, it will only convert the first three minutes of every track.
