Sorry if this is stupid.  If I upload my music to iTunes - can i get it to my ipad without connecting it to a computer?  Like through iCloud?

Thank you


iPad

    Yes, by enabling iTunes Match on your computer based library the Songs can be uploaded or matched 'in the cloud'.  Enabling iTunes Match on your iPad will allow you to access these Songs without the use of the computer.

    That is great!

     

    One more thing.  Example:  if I upload 5,000 songs to iTunes, they upload to iCloud, will all 5,000 songs download automatically to my ipad or can I pick and choose what I want to download? (I don't want all 5,000 songs on my ipad)

    Keep in mind that iCloud and iTunes Match are seperate services offered by Apple. One does not require the other, although they are related. When you purchase and enable iTunes Match in iTunes, on your computer, tracks are not "uploaded to iTunes" or to "iCloud." Your iTunes library is mirrored "in the cloud" by matching to music that is available for sale on the iTunes Music Store you are registered to use; some tracks will actually be "uploaded."

     

    When the service is enabled on an iOS device nothing is downloaded except a list of tracks avialble in the cloud. You will be able to see all the tracks and play them, but nothing will be automatically downloaded.

    You can choose which tracks are downloaded to the iPad, all will be available.

    One last think.  When I want to listen to a song/album that is in the iCloud (I now have iTunes Match) I believe that it downloads it to my Ipad, how do I delete songs/albums from my ipad only?

    Swipe across the individual tracks and tape the DELETE button.
