Q9: Why is the conversion speed so slow? How can I get a faster conversion speed?

For Mac user: The conversion speed of DumpMedia Apple Music Converter (Mac) has become slower than before. Actually, it's not just DumpMedia, but all similar Apple Music Converters in the market are having the same situation.

The main reason for the slower conversion speed is that Apple has improved their system in the previous iTunes and Mac update. So we've made changes in the software accordingly to make sure that it can work with the latest iTunes and Mac system. If we can find a better solution later, we will update the software immediately. Please allow us some time.

For Windows user: You can adjust the conversion speed from 1X to 16X by following the steps here: go to Options > Convert > Adjust audio conversion speed. 1X to 5X conversion speed is recommended to avoid conversion error.

Q10: When I launch the software, iTunes runs automatically. Can I quit it?

Please set the output format as MP3 and Bitrate as 256 kbps. and slow down the converting speed. After the conversion, the quality will not be compromised, unless you lower the bitrate to 128 kbps or 192 kbps.
