Put Songs on My iPod Without iTunes

Did you recently invest in the latest iPod released by Apple or have you been contemplating taking your old iPod out of the drawer and finally dusting it off for daily use? Whatever your reason may be for looking for a guide on how to put music on iPod without iTunes, we’re here to help you!

There are numerous reasons why users don’t prefer using iTunes to transfer music to their iOS devices.

How To Put Songs on an iPod Without iTunes?


As mentioned earlier, you can use iTunes, which is a desktop tool to convert and transfer all your songs to an iPod.

However, most users don’t prefer this tool because it can be complicated to use and take a long period to complete the conversion and transfer processes.

There are also several online tools at your disposal, but, since most of them are unreliable and inefficient, people tend to steer clear of them. So, what would be a better alternative to putting songs on iPod without iTunes?

Well, Softorino has developed a desktop tool called WALTR PRO to make our lives marginally easier in terms of format conversions and easy iOS transfers. The software works on both Windows PC and Mac and has the ability to transfer files via Wi-Fi.

Unlike most online and desktop tools you will find on the market, WALTR PRO supports bulk conversions and transfers and does so within a few minutes – if not seconds. It also automatically detects the format and converts it to an Apple-friendly format without any extra steps and effort.

The tool also automatically detects missing metadata and adds it to the converted files, so when you listen to your favorite tracks on your iPod, you can also view the creative album art explicitly designed for them.

Are you excited to find out how WALTR PRO works? SO ARE WE! So, let’s dive right into it!


Step # 1: Download and Install WALTR PRO

You can download WALTR PRO’s free trial version for your Mac or Windows PC. The free version will give you ample time to get the hang of the tool and decipher whether it is worth your buck or not – which, in our case, it totally is!

Once the download is complete, you can install the software on your computer and watch the
onboarding video to learn how this simple yet effective tool works. You will also be prompted to enter your email address where you wish to receive the trial key to begin converting and transferring songs to your iPod using WALTR PRO.

Enter the trial key you receive on your email address into the relevant field and you’ll be all set to begin transferring files using this software.

Step # 2: Plug Your iPod Into Your Computer


Since you most likely want your songs to end up in your iPod’s music collection, you will need to connect it to your computer using its USB cable.

Bear in mind that you will only need to connect your iPod via the
USB cable for the first transfer, after that you can simply pair your devices through Wi-Fi.

Just make sure that your laptop and iPod are on the same Wi-Fi network.
After connecting your iPod via a USB cable, simply press on the settings wheel in the WALTR PRO window and select the Enable WiFi Connectivity option.

This will help you transfer files to your iPod without the USB cable.

Step # 3: Drag and Drop

You can click on Select Files to manually browse through your computer and locate the files or folder that you want to transfer to your iPod or simply drag and drop them to the WALTR PRO window to begin the conversion and transfer process.

WALTR PRO will only take a few minutes at max to convert and transfer all your files to your iPod, which you will need to select before you hit the Convert and Transfer button.

Why Is WALTR PRO The Best Tool to Transfer Music To iPod Without iTunes?

To put it simply, WALTR PRO makes the job significantly easier for those of us who don’t consider themselves tech-savvy enough to use complicated tools for transfers and conversions that involve more than a dozen steps.

WALTR PRO is not only easy to use but it’s also revolutionary, lightning-fast, reliable, convenient, and cost-effective. The following are some other reasons why we think WALTR PRO will be a perfect investment for you:
● You can transfer files to your iOS device[s] via Wi-Fi

Can I Download and Transfer Music to My iPod From YouTube?

Do you want all your favourite tracks from YouTube on your iPod to listen to them without any third-party app or even Wi-Fi? Softorino has got your back in that aspect as well!

If you want to download songs, audiobooks, or podcasts from YouTube to listen to them directly on the Music app on your iPod, you can do so using Softorino YouTube Converter 2 [SYC2].

This tool also works on both Mac and Windows PC and it even comes with its own browsing tool, so you can find your favourite audio files on YouTube without having to leave the SYC2 window.

Here’s how the app works:

Downloading and Installing SYC2

Download the free trial version of SYC2 on your Mac or Windows PC from the official Softorino website.

Wait for the download to complete and then go ahead and install the software on your laptop.

The free trial will give you an entire day of unlimited conversions and transfers to all iOS devices, including different models of iPods.

If you’re happy with the results, you can then proceed to invest in the budget-friendly license.
It is pertinent to mention that you can choose from one-time, annual, and monthly payment plans in case you decide to buy the premium version of SYC2.

Locate Audio Files on YouTube

Use the built-in browser in SYC2 to locate your favourite audio files on YouTube. You can do this by typing in the name of the file in the search bar, after which you will be presented with the top results for your search.

Click on the video that you wish to convert and transfer to your iPod and then select the Add to Queue option located at the top of the browser.

Repeat this for as many audio files as you wish to convert and transfer to your iPod.

Convert YouTube Tracks and Transfer to Your iPod

Once you’ve added all the songs you want to the queue, you can go ahead and tweak the conversion and transfer options to your liking.

In this case, since you’re likely looking for ways to transfer songs to
your iPod, you’ll need to select Audio under the Convert To menu.

You can then select the format by clicking on Original, MP3, or AAC under the Audio menu. To transfer files to your iPod, simply select your iPod from the list of devices under the Save To menu.

Once you’re done tweaking all the settings, press the Convert & Transfer to iPod button, which is located at the bottom of the SYC2 window.

The tool will convert and transfer all your selected audio files to your iPod without the need for a third-party app – and that’s it! You can browse, convert, and transfer your favourite tracks from YouTube directly from SYC2 without having to leave the window.

Concluding Thoughts

iPod, despite being an underrated device, is still a pretty cool gadget to own. It gives users 10 to 36 hours of battery life [depending on which model you’re using] and even better sound quality.

If you don’t want to use it to free up space on your phone that’s otherwise reserved for audio files and music, you may want to consider using it for a trip down memory lane.

Either way, we hope our guide on how to put music on iPod without iTunes has helped you gauge how WALTR PRO works and why we think this tool will become your ultimate companion in converting and transferring files to your iOS devices.
