Is there another way to save Spotify with Audials Music?

Yes, there is another way. You have just learned how to record from Spotify by playing back the music. But if you do not want to play it back, you have a second recording feature in Audials, the drag & drop function. By using this capturing method, you download the music in 30x speed. How do you use the drag & drop feature?

You have started Spotify and opened the Music Streaming section in Audials. Drag the Spotify playlist or album to Audials. A download button will appear in Audials. Click on this button to start the download. 

With this drag & drop feature, an unvisible Spotify window is opened and the songs played back, but the user does not hear them. Drag & drop is a recording mode, too, and not a downloading mode as the songs are played back. But from the user's point of view, Audials Music works like a Spotify downloader.
