What people often ask

Can you convert Spotify to MP3?

Audials Music could record music streaming from Spotify and save it as MP3 file. If users will have other music files in different audio file format it is possible to convert them to MP3 without any quality loss, too. Audials Music includes an audio converter and Audials One could convert any media as universal converter for audio and video files.

 

Can you transfer music from Spotify to MP3 player?

If the Spotify stream is recorded to a MP3 music file you can easily transfer it by USB cable connected MP3 player or smartphone with Audials Music. You can upload your music to cloud, too.

 

Can you download music from Spotify?

With Audials One you can search & record music from Spotify. Audials Music could record with up to ten times speed one music track and two songs parallelly. Both solutions will save the music like a download from Spotify.

 

 

Is there another way to record 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 15x 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 for the user, it looks like a download.
