There's a saying goes "Sound is half the picture." So many of us prefer to add a background music to PowerPoint presentation to make it more vibrant. However, if you try to insert iTunes music into PPT presentation, you might come across a problem that iTunes music cannot be compatible with PowerPoint.

PowerPoint 2007/2010/2013/2016 only accepts certain types of audio files such as WMA, MP3, WAV, AIFF, AU, etc. as background music while the music files from Apple iTunes Store are usually in M4A, DRM-protected-M4P, unprotected M4P or AAC. Therefore, you need to convert iTunes music from M4P/M4A/AAC to a more common format that PPT can handle, such as MP3.

Apple Music Converter is designed for releasing the limitation of iTunes music and converting iTunes music to most common used MP3, WMA or WAV. It has the ability to convert any audio file from iTunes (DRM-protected audios included) with excellent quality output. It supports batch conversion and 16X faster conversion speed.
