    Okay I added a local track I had from my old library to apple music via iTunes 12.2 on my Mac. Plays fine on iTunes and is the local copy. Now when I go to my iOS device (iPhone) and play that track I get the AM matched copy which is NOT the same one. Sounds very different and echo-ie. How do I get the right version to my iOS devices since I cannot sync iTunes?

    For songs I have added to my iTunes library this week that were uploaded (not matched) on my home iMac, I am unable to download them through iTunes Match to my work iMac. My work iMac iTunes is the latest version, but home iMac is an older version. I subscribe to iTunes Match but not Apple Music.

    I guess there is a problem now where uploaded songs are "broken". Disappointing. I hope they fix it.

    Addendum. I can download the uploaded songs to my iPad and iPhone and they seem fine.

    So, in my experience I cannot download newly added, uploaded songs to a desktop but I can download them to an iPad and iPhone.

    I have a song that is a live version but iCloud music replaced it with the studio version on my phone. This is really annoying and I can't find any way to fix it. I mean, the song is even labelled as live on my iTunes so why would apple replace it with the studio one? If I were to completely change the name and upload would it fix it?

    Yes, if you remove the song from iCloud Music (make sure you have a backup of all your music files first), then change the name on the metadata (add "live" to the end in the metadata) and re-add it, it should fail to match the song and upload the live version. Once that's done you can change the metadata name back.

    Note that I have not tried this - the solution comes from another poster in another thread.
