Spotify converter - 2 fast & easy ways to convert Spotify to MP3

Updated: July 19th 2021

Spotify to MP3

Convert Spotify music to MP3 and many other formats with the clearly designed Spotify converter


Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services with millions of tracks, playlists and podcasts. The good thing is that although there is the Spotify Premium subscription that enables you to listen to music at 320 kbps, you can also listen to Spotify for free at up to 160 kbps.


Spotify Premium users can download music directly from Spotify for offline listening, but they will not get real audio files. With the free subscription, you will not even have this download feature. That is why you will need a powerful Spotify converter that will record and convert your songs into files.


Both Spotify Premium and Free subscribers can use the Spotify converter Audials Music to convert their favorite Spotify music in the audio format they need.


Warning: Most of the tools presented here record from Spotify much faster than real-time.
This is done by using a hidden "high speed" function of Spotify: For the whole Spotify system time passes much faster in order to be able to save the music faster. Furthermore, some tools send requests to Spotify servers.


While the recording of Spotify music in general is "invisible" to Spotify, these "high-speed recordings" are directly visible to Spotify, because Spotify saves for each user when he has heard which music track - and these data make obvious that "high speed" was used.

Spotify recently stopped accepting this:
As far as we know, Spotify will detect almost all Spotify converter tools. Anyone who records music at "high speed" risks being suspended by Spotify. We can therefore only recommend using Spotify recorders, which also support recording in real time and that do not send requests to Spotify servers.
