Spotify recorder- how to record music from Spotify music?
Spotify users can access approximately 8 million tracks. Today I will show a tool called Spotify Recorder. It determines when and what Spotify is playing and then saves the song in mp3 format (includes title, artist, album, genre - Automatically)
We use Streaming recorder as a spotify recorder. It is the best software for recording music from Spotify. It allows to split, tag and name files automatically. It can also put all your recorded files into the appropriate folder.
Unlike many other Spotify recorders, it records music directly from Spotify, so you don't record any background noise or any audio from your sound card besides songs from Spotify. So you will get the best quality of Spotify music recording is just like the original one.
This Spotify recorder is not free but its well worth the $19.95 it costs because it will save you a lot of time and get you the best result. (especially when you consider 1 month of premium Spotify is £9.99 alone). A free trial that allows you to download 25 songs is also available.
If you are a Mac user, get AllMyMusic here. It works similar with Streaming recorder, and also easy to use.
Launch Streaming recorder (Spotify recorder) Hit the "recording" button.
On the "Input" tab choose the directory to store your recordings.
Spotify songs will be placed into the directory after recording.
On the same tab, select the "Audio Driver" as the "Input Source". This option allows you to record songs from sound card without any background. It also allows you to record audio on sound cards like Realtek, Sigmatel that doesn't have the Stereo Mix / Wave-out Mix option. On the "Output" tab change "File name format" if you like. I prefer to use the "%A - %T" template, so that my MP3 recordings look like "artist_name - title_name.mp3".
On the same tab select "Record to MP3" and change the bit-rate to 192kbps (Spotify uses the bitrate of 168kbps and we are a slightly higher one). Also select the VBR (variable bit-rate) for better quality and smaller file size. Close the Setting windows. Note that you need to change the Setting only once. Start Spotify and find a song or playlist that you want to record. But don't start playing yet. Note that you need to start Streaming recorder before Spotify. In Streaming recorder hit the "Start Recording" button. Enter "Artist", "Album" if you like. Change other settings if you need.
If you want your recorded songs to be added to iTunes automatically, mark the "Add tracks to iTunes" checkbox. Hit the "Ok" button. Start playing music with Spotify. Streaming recorder will record your songs from Spotify. It will also split them, tag and name automatically. If Streaming recorder didn't manage to find ID3 tags (artist,title,...) for a song, you can right-click on the recording and select "Tag track" to try to identify the song again.
You can also edit tracks manually by hitting the Edit button. Enjoy your MP3 recordings on any player! Get Spotify recorder now!
