Two Simple Ways to Download Music from Spotify for Free
In this article, we provide you with two separate yet simple methods to download music from Spotify without having to go out of pocket and pay regularly for the service. The methods that we provide require either iMusic, or Aiseesoft Screen Recorder.
Music plays an important part in our lives. Whether you like to admit it or not, music is a way that we can convey our emotions as well as our personality. That is why when Spotify was released, everyone was thrilled. Spotify is a program where a variety of music is available and you can add all of the songs that you enjoy, into one simple playlist, or as many as you want! So that arises the question, what’s the issue with Spotify as it is then?
While there is no issue with Spotify, it’s more of an inconvenience. Just like every company, the Spotify company is there to make money. For them to make money, every few songs that are played an advertisement will be played in between. In order to get rid of those advertisements, you must upgrade your account to “Premium” status. Ridding your account of advertisements isn’t the only perk, but it’s certainly one of the best. You are also able to download your playlists so that you are able to listen to them offline (on both your phone and your computer), however some of us aren’t able to regularly pay for a service such as this, which is where downloading your music from Spotify can be very useful.
Part 1: Download Spotify to MP3 by iMusic
iMusic is a program produced by Aimersoft which allows for you to easily manage your music without the hassle of re-downloading the music on all of your devices. You can use this program for a range of devices, from iOS devices to Android devices. While it’s primary focus is managing music for your devices, there are a variety of other useful functions on the program. Today we will be focussing on how we can use iMusic to our own advantage when we want to download music from Spotify.
How to Download Music from Spotify Using iMusic
In this method, you will be taught how you are able to download music directly from Spotify with the use of iMusic.
Step #1 – Before we get into the method itself, make sure that you have installed iMusic properly and have it opened up and ready to go.
Step #2 – Once you have launched the program, Click “DOWNLOAD” in the “GET MUSIC” window.
Step #3 – To download music from Spotify, you must have the “Song Link”. You are able to get the song link of the song you would like to download by opening Spotify, right clicking the song, and choosing the “Copy Artist Link” option.
Note: If you are looking to download a whole playlist rather than a single song, simply right-click on the playlist and choose the “Copy Playlist Link” option.
Step #4 – Once you have the necessary link, we can go back to the program itself. Paste the link in the designated box, and click on the download button. If necessary, you are also able to download music from YouTube too!
Step #5 – After the song has downloaded, you will be able to find it under the “LIBRARY” section, then download icon on the left side to check out the songs.
Part 2: Download Spotify to MP3 by Aiseesoft Screen Recorder
Aiseesoft’s screen recorder program can be used for a variety of tasks, although the main purpose of the program is of course to screen record. The program can be used to record gaming videos, classroom tutorials to assist your students, or even upload computer tutorials to upload to the internet. There are endless possibilities with the program and there are plenty of settings which allow for you to customize them to fit your needs. However, today we will be going over how you are able to easily download music from Spotify with no additional costs, and very easily.
How to Download Music from Spotify Using Aieseesoft Screen Recorder
This method will guide you through using Aieseesoft’s screen recorder to retrieve an audio file for the Spotify songs that you would like.
Step #1 – As always, ensure that you have downloaded and properly installed the screen recorder program so that you can jump straight into the method.
Step #2 – Once installed, open up the program and adapt the settings so that they are suited to your needs.
Step #3 – When changing the program’s settings, make sure that you disable your microphone so that no external audio is picked up, and make sure that you turn on your system audio. This step is important so that only the audio from Spotify is being recorded.
Step #4 – After the settings are set up correctly, locate the Spotify song that you want to record.
Step #5 – This part can be tricky as it is down to timing. As soon as you click on the “Play” button for the song you want to be downloaded, you must click on the “REC” button to record that song as soon as possible.
Step #6 – While the song is being recorded, be sure that you leave your computer alone in case you accidentally open up a media file and have to start again. Pay attention to the recording and as you see the song coming to an end, be prepared to stop the recording process.
Step #7 – After stopping the recording, you will have a file prepared for all your music needs.
The only problem with this method is that you may not be able to retrieve the high-quality audio that you were hoping to. In this case, it would be a great idea to look into using an audio converter so that you can improve the quality of the song. However, if the quality is not an issue, you are free to use it for whatever you want to.
Regardless of which method you decide to use to download music from Spotify, you have now successfully retrieved MP3 files for all of the songs that you wanted. Now that you have the music, you can use it for whatever you want. Perhaps you found these methods and thought they sounded cool, so you wanted to try them out! If that is the case, here are some things you can do with the music that you’ve managed to retrieve:
- Insert the music into one of your video editing projects
- Transfer the music to your phone to listen to while traveling
- Burn the music to a disc so that you can listen to it in the car
- If you are into the music industry, use the music that you have obtained to create a remix of each song or perhaps a collaboration remix
- Use the music as a ringtone for your phone.
As you can see, there are definitely a lot of things that you can use music for and by downloading Spotify music through either of these methods, you are able to obtain them a lot easier than ever before! If any of these reasons sound like something which is of great use to you, then maybe it’s time for you to give it a shot.
