How to Download Music from Spotify

Spotify is one of the best online music streaming services I've ever used. This service provides a free account to allow you stream varieties of music online. But if you want to download Spotify music for offline listening or use, you may need to do some searches on Google or somewhere else to find a reliable tool. Fortunately, here, I directly introduce an easy-to-use and efficient Spotify music recorder to you—Streaming Audio Recorder. It has the following advantages:

  • 1. Record any audio via your computer sound card without quality loss
  • 2. Save Spotify music in MP3 format after recording.
  • 3. Transfer Spotify music to iTunes with a simple click.

Below is a step-by-step tutorial to guide you through how to download Spotify songs by using this smart Spotify music recorder.

Step 1: Download, install and launch this smart Streaming Audio Recorder.

Step 2: Start Spotify download

Press the "Record" button in this app's main menu, find one Spotify song you want to record, and then play it. Immediately, you'll see this app is starting to record the Spotify music. Once the recording is over, you can get a MP3 file in its library.

Hi Christine, It doesn't work anymore to record music from Spotify with Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder. If I launch Spotify without opening Wondershare, it plays perfectly. But if I open Wondershare, Spotify immediately stops playing... So recording isn't possible anymore. Do you think Wondershare can do something about this? Thank you!
Hi Samoyed, thanks for your interest in our software, you can check here to see the introduction of the product and also the price.
how much is this after the free trail ?
Hi Anders, normally, when you choose 256 kbps, the output M4A file will be in this quality. For your case, it may be because of the music itself since the software captures songs depending on the music complexity. You can try this software on other songs to check whether it works when saving in 256 kbps. Thanks.
Why does the software capture songs in M4A 128 kbps when i choose to save in 256 kbps?
