Characters like space, hyphen (-), underline (_), etc. in file name and use slash (/) for file path. For example, you can use output file name "Taylor Swift - Shake It Off.mp3" instead of "Shake It Off.mp3". It's a good way to keep your output music files organized on Mac.

Change Apple Music conversion options

In the old versions, there is an option which you can use to adjust conversion speed from 1X to 16X. However, because of system limitation, the application can only use 1X speed when you are using Mac 10.13 High Sierra or later. If you are still using Mac 10.12 Sierra or older OS, the conversion speed will be automatically up to 16X faster. That's why we have removed the speed option.
