    UPD: I moved to Deemix. Read comments.

    It's been harder and harder to download music. Whether you pay for it, or not. Google Play Music has been my last resort because they allowed to download tracks that you purchase. Now that they became YouTube Music, that feature is gone.
    Times are changing and we have to adjust. I tried many different services but those that have database beyond pop music - use drm protection, so you can't use your player to listen to the music that you paid for, you can't copy it to your phone, you can't play it in your car from flash drive, etc.

    Thanks to this topic i found out that there is software to download music from Spotify with original bitrate and convert it to any format you prefer.

    This post is simply my own test of those programs and confirmation that you can indeed download tracks with at least 256kbps from Spotify.


    So here we go. my humble opinion:
    1. Allavsoft Video Downloader Converter
    gives you the best audio quality;
    bad UX - obsolete "WinXP style" interface;
    automatically creates 3 folders for it's activity (converted, downloaded, merged);
    Fastest download speed of all;
    asks for your Spotify login (which actually makes sense).


    2. Sidify Music Converter
    Based on the same engine as NoteBurner and Tidabie, but has the best interface and features;
    sometimes just won't start;
    shuts down spotify while converting;
    slow download speed.


    NoteBurner - I was only able to run it once. Don't know how but it seems totally identical to Sidify.


    Ondesoft Spotify Converter
    no AAC support;
    raw interface;
    shuts down spotify while converting.


    Tidabie Tidal Music Converter
    Uses the same engine as Sidify and NoteBurner;
    Exprensive;
    Requires you to register an account at Tidal.com before you can even test it.


    Here are my tests with Spek. You can read about it here.

    now the most important - you don't even have to get Spotify premium. The quality you get through this software is the same for both premium and free Spotify accounts.

    You can check downloaded files yourself.


    Let me know what you think. I will stick to Allavsoft even though i prefer Sidify's interface.

    Honestly i don't know how they didn't got sued. sidify also sells software to download from apple music :disco:

    im using deemix-pyweb, it downloads files directly from deezer as mp3 128, 320 and FLAC. its one click, it tags alone and ads album covers in various sizes in the file and extra.

    you can easily download a 10k playlist in an hour, if you connection is fast enough.

    your list has incorrect Tags - for example:
    Its Jody Wisternoff - James Grant - Dapple (Thats Anjunabeats Catalog, it has to be there)
    https://www.deezer.com/search/jody wisternoff – dapple

    check your Track informations.
    How will you possibly find this one? Bryan Milton & Jama - ID?

    as an alternative to fill gaps, what Deezer not has, im using Soulseek, it can find very rare vinyl recordings, well what people offer. (FLAC, mp3, WAV, etc)

    for example: https://www.deezer.com/search/Sound Quelle pain/track
    is Sound Quelle & DeepLowDog - I Can Take Your Pain Away

    Those standard EDM labels, all put their stuff on spotify and Deezer.

    I've been using Deezer downloaders for 2-3 years too (started with Deezloader, moved to deemix when the original project was abandoned), absolutely best solution for me. I miss the times when you were able to actually download songs from Spotify instead of just "converting" them.

    you could never download from Spotify - they had their stuff always encrypted from the beginning.

    Yeah i think i started around beginning 2017 mass downloading from Deezer, there were days with 100+GB @ 320

    It always depends if Labels have digitalized vinyls or allowed distribution via Spotify/deezer etc, if they havnt done that, then you cant find the Tracks.

    it hasn't been released yet, that list is mostly made of tracks i hear at SoundCloud and write them down to download in future.

    i've been using that thing among with kazaa and emule back in our ancient days :rofl:
    does it really still works?


    i didn't realize you can search without registering an account.
    so i searched through my list again and turns out Deezer does have it all!

    I downloaded deemix, run the software and just in few seconds i was able to download my tracks!!! The interface is simple and fast, i love how much you can set up using Settings. Thank you so much Artic!!! :crazy:

    P.S. Deemix also has Spotify Features.

    Could you please post Deemix at AudioZ > Sys.tools also including link to this topic? :like:

    You can remove DRM from practically any music service. I only download scene released music though, of course, you have to work harder but that doesn't scare me. Problem solved.

    Well something must have changed drastically then, because I remember how easy it used to be to download songs from Spotify, and then after some time it didn't work anymore and you had to start "converting" them (aka recording them on 10x speed or something like that). That's the reason I switched to downloading songs from Deezer after all.

    I'm using this https://github.com/yaronzz/Tidal-Media-Downloader. It is a Python script but it has a Windows GUI with search function and is regular updated.You can download flac and Videos in 1080p. You got to have an Tidal account for it to work. :) Cheers

    I have been using TunesKit Spotify Music Converter and that downloads from Spotify, however if you have a Free account then you will have issues with ads all the time, which sometimes gets added to the beginning of songs if you are downloading say an album, but it is generally ok if you download 1-3 songs at once. I pay monthly as well so I don't have problems with ads.

    I have tested the audio files with FakinTheFunk to see if they actually are Flac files and it says they are.

    My setting on TunesKit Spotify Music Converter:
