There are plenty of reasons for why someone would want to transfer the music from iPad to computer. If your computer is broken, or just got a new computer and you will have to transfer music from your iPad to the new computer. If you have purchased all of the music from the iTunes, you can simply log into your new computer with the same iTunes account and all of the music will be downloaded on this computer. However, if you have downloaded music from different websites, you cannot simply sync the old music to the new iTunes. This is because Apple will never allow users to transfer the music from the iPad to the computer to prevent the piracy. In order to resolve this issue, you can use a third party software to transfer the music to the iTunes Library or a particular folder on your computer.
