    My iTunes account has been evolving over the years. Of the 1600 or so songs, about 10% show as purchased via iTunes.

    I'm currently running a iPhone 6+ 64 gig and I have a iMac for home use. Most of my music on the iPhone is on the cloud.

    How do I get all of my music, specifically the music not purchased through itunes, off the cloud, and onto the iMac?

    Dan in Dallas....

    I'm a bit confused as to what you are saying. You mentioned moving your music to the cloud and then mentioned iTunes. Did you sign up for iTunes match? If so, once the subscription expires the only songs that will remain to download from the cloud are the ones you purchased and not the ones it matched and stored for you.

    I'm referring to "the cloud" and iTunes as the same.
    Me thinks this is related to music match...

    So it was simple enough to enable iTunes Match, and I now see my music

    You have to maintain the yearly subscription to iTunes Match otherwise the only music that will appear in the cloud is what you've purchased directly from iTunes.
