    I recently subscribed to iTunes match and all is working well. Out of my entire library there were about a dozen tracks that were invalid, mainly because there were too long or too big...live DJ set stuff.

    How can i manually get these tracks on my iPhone? I don't expect the benefits of iTunes match but I would like to get them on there manually. I don't wanna hack it by putting them on drop box if i can.

    You'll need to load them on through iTunes on a computer.
    Just add them to your itunes library and choose to sync your music.

    The only other option to actually get them into the music app without a computer is using garageband on your iphone to import and save the song, and it's not the best solution.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the response. The music is on my iTunes library but I can't see an option to synch my music. It just says "iTunes Match is on" when i look at the music settings on my iPhone.

    Haven't used match, but I think it might disable library syncing. According to this article: Toggle between iTunes Match and local syncing | Macworld you should be able to turn off match, sync your library, and then turn it back on without losing anything you transferred.

    Fixed!

    Decided to make the invalid tracks, valid. All the >2 hr ones I chopped in half by setting stop times and creating AAC versions again and vice versa for the second half of the track. 100% uploaded to Match now! Weeeeeeee!
