Spotify to MP3

I really hope someone can help me with this I'm looking for a legal way to download (or record or whatever it's called) some songs and playlists from spotify and then convert those into mp3 files. Simple as that. What for? See, my mp3 player is to old for this new-fancy-I-need-an-app-for-ever-single-step-of-my-gorgeous-life-thing. Therefore I need some program or software or whatever will help me achieve my adventurous aim So why not ask some warriors here, they surely have a good answer for me I would be so glad if someone could help me! Thanks!

    Yeah you are looking for a recording software. They operate on recording what you are streaming on your computer (like modern VCR). Good ones do cost a little money but are mostly worth it. I would recommend tunebite premium, it's the cheapest software right now (only 19,90 ) and achieves best possible outcomes. E.g. you can easily pick from the platform you want to record (on your case Spotify) and then it records and converts (you can also pick this, your case mp3) in double speed. Quality stays same as from the platform you captured your streams, so in my experience spotify is always really good. But you get more information on their website here
    There is also a easy how-to-tutorial, so no further technological knowledge needed

    A simple Google search shows ways to record Spotify. However, doing so is against Spotify's terms of service:

    Section 8 of the TOS:
    "The following is not permitted for any reason whatsoever:

    copying, redistributing, reproducing, “ripping”, recording, transferring, performing or displaying to the public, broadcasting, or making available to the public any part of the Spotify Service or the Content, or otherwise making any use of the Spotify Service or the Content which is not expressly permitted under the Agreements or applicable law or which otherwise infringes the intellectual property rights (such as copyright) in the Spotify Service or the Content or any part of it;"

    "Arguing with...strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game because they almost always turn out to be, or to be indistinguishable from, self-righteous 16-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."

    I tried both Spotify downloader and Spotify recorder.

    For Spotify downloader:
    Fast download
    not stable, lot of songs can not be downloaded

    For Spotify recorder:
    slow, recording while you are playing music
    stable, you can record any song from Spotify

    I prefer the recording method!

    Hi All,

    Great discussion regarding legalities, however - as the topic in question is directly against spotify's terms and conditions - it's considered illegal. We don't endorse behaviours or discussions of illegal activity so this thread will be closed.

    Thanks for contributing!
