This simply means that you cannot use the music anywhere else as Apple Music streams are DRM blocked.

During my UkeySoft Apple Music Converter Review, the application ran quite smoothly, I did not face any major bugs or glitches. Being lightweight, it won’t impact your PC much, will use very few resources, and can do the job it is meant to do.
One thing you should note is that while converting does not close the iTunes app from the background. It is dependent on it for converting, so you should mind that. Other than this, there is nothing much to worry about.
The impact on the PC while converting any music track is minimal. The CPU usage was close to 0, while memory usage was about 25MB. Disk and Network close to 0 as well.
