    I have a quick question about how iTunes Match handles multiple libraries. I have a MacBook Pro and an iMac, and my question is this. If I change the metadata of a song in one libaray should that change occur in the other? So for instance if I change the Artist on a song on my iMac, should that change appear (eventually) in the library of my MacBook? Or do I have to make the change manually?

    Well you're really talking about three different libraries.

    One is the library on the iMac, the other is on the MacBook Pro, and the third is iCloud.

    If you're updating metadata on files on one of the libraries stored on a computer, and that metadata is that of a file you've Matched, that change will be reflected in iCloud. If then, you've enabled iTunes Match on the other machine, that change will also be reflected there if the file on that computer is the Matched version and not an original unMatched one.

    Get it? Yeah.
