I am quite pleased with this program. There's a few quirky things about it, but overall it seems to work well. For normal (paying customers) the auto-update feature would be a good thing - but not so nice for GAOTD members. Also, it was quirky to turn that feature off. Some kind of message flashed briefly on the screen, then disappeared (turns out if was minimized and I found it later and did the "confirm" that I wanted auto-updates off. I had already had problems with the MS version of Spotify (in that it didn't work), so the version I am running IS the one from Spotify itself, and the AudFree program had no trouble finding it on my Win10/64 system. It was also difficult to change the output directory. I couldn't do that at first, then later (perhaps after registering?) it allowed me to do that. I launched AudFree and it executed Spotify and logged me on just fine. I searched for an album in Spotify and then dragged each song in the album to the AudFree download area, and it automatically started downloading. It's a bit slow - perhaps only 3 times faster than listening to each track, but it still beats capturing the song manually with, say, Audacity where you have to listen to the entire song in real-time. I was happy to see there was an option to set up a directory structure as Artist\Album\song... I DO wish there was a further option to append the track number (with leading zeroes 01, 02, etc.) to the front of the Song title (they DID capture the track# in the metadata. I haven't checked out whether I could get a better bit rate than 256K (392 would be nicer), but honestly, I can't hear the difference between those rates anyway. It was interesting that when the time for a commercial came, the downloading paused - the commercial played audibly - then the download resumed successfully. At that time, though the Spotify window disappeared - but then it reappeared later when the entire download was completed. (Like I said, a few quirky things). My only concern is that Spotify might kill my account if it discovers that a non-premium account is downloading - although I AM hearing their advertising, so perhaps they won't mind. Overall, though, a very good offering from GAOTD. Thank you!

Unfortunately, if you have the free version of Spotify, it records the commercials when they play, cutting off that many seconds from the end of the track.

Tony S, - you're right. It appeared to me that the download "paused" then resumed, but it actually DID record the commercial(s), followed by the track, and then cut off however much time was used by the recording from the end of the track. It'd be nice if they would fix that. I wonder what would have happened on a very short song (one that had less time than the commercial).

Installed and registered fine under Vista 32bit and Win10 64bit business 1809 under both operating systems it was able to download all the tracks I tried and downloaded to FLAC and WAV which is all I tried as I would not convert to lossy codec like mp3 or AAC or M4A formats on initial download, only if I wanted to export them to be used on some independant player that did not support the lossless formats. Conversion apears to take place on the fly and avoids a two phase, download then convert phase. It had no difficulty spawning the spotify desktop application under either Vista or Win10 on my systems... could those having troubles under win10 not be using the desktop spotify but the Win10 universal app spotify? It is possible that this little program may have issues with the Microsoft app store version of spotify but not the desktop application.

The idea that you can convert the high quality audio you get when subscribed to Spotify to, say, MP3 format "with zero quality loss" is ludicrous.

MP3, no matter the data rate selected, is a highly compressed lossy format. So converting to it will have serious quality loss compared to the original.

If you can't hear the difference, why are you paying Spotify for high quality audio?

Reply   |   Comment by DD  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

DD, The frequency of FM, audio cassette, audio tape, MP3 (not including Dolby) is usually set to a frequency of 16.5 kHz. With the program 'WinLame' I can set a frequency for mp3 to the maximum and that is 19.5 kHz. But if the speakers and earphones are of poor quality, you can't use a perfect mp3 with Dolby.

Reply   |   Comment by Jenny Garfield  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

DD, Your statement is correct about lossless and converting mp3 to FLAC or whatever can't improve it or make it lossless. I believe the statement above means that there is no loss from original Spotify quality converting it to other formats. At least that's how I read it.

Reply   |   Comment by Ken  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

DD, Actually Spotify doesn't provide lossless high quality audio, it's comparable with a 352 MP3, so the premise of the software is solid... Give tidal a listen and listen the difference yourself...

Reply   |   Comment by Marcos  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

DD, lol
high quality on spotify is like 320 kbit/s (Ogg Vorbis)
soooo its like high quality mp3 file

Reply   |   Comment by jan vandam  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Ken, while you cannot improve an existing mp3 by converting it to FLAC or WAV you WILL damage an existing mp3 sound file by converting it to AAC or WMA or OGG or AC3 . Or if the source audio stream is OGG but the software does not let us export in OGG without any conversion... then choosing ANY lossy codec to export to will degrade the exported audio compared to exporting it to a lossless format like FLAC or WAV or Lossless WMA if supported. Their statement is plain wrong as one cannot encode a stereo or mono audio track using ANY Lossy codec without quantifiable quality loss. It is a mathematicaly and electronically measurable fact.

Trial version will only record 1 minute of audio. So free giveaway is only to evaluate audio quality of the conversion. Otherwise not useful unless you are considering buying this program.

Steve, You have to register the programme to remove the 1 minute limit (see the readme.txt file for details)

I have Spotify installed from Windows Store and this program can't find it.

I had a copy of Sidify Music Converter, that didn't find the Windows Store Version of Spotify.

Maybe, if I dowloaded Spotify from the Spotify site this would work but I se e no reason to try.

Update this program to find the Windows Store version of Spotify, then I'll give it another go.

Thanks anyway for the offer.

Reply   |   Comment by Philip  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Philip, Installed the GOTD-program first in WinXP and there was also a download of Spotify for XP: SpotifyFullXPSP3.exe
It worked.
After that I installed all in Win10, also "SpotifyFullXPSP3.exe".
And also here it worked. Later on Spotify was updated to a newer version.
Why should a program be in the Store to install it?
You do install GOTD-program's: are they in the Store.
In the Win10 I do not have an MS-account, no Store etc.
On the mobile I have all of that and that is limiting my idea's.

Philip, you're right; the Spotify has to be the program from their site, not the app from the Windows store. I works fine after I made the switch.

On windows 10 64 bit 1809 , works good. I am using sidify music converter for spotify and its converted music quality is good than this converter. this software have many conversion format which does not have sidify but i choose quality of music so i prefer sidify than this software.

Reply   |   Comment by dharmang1910  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

dharmang1910, but sidify is more expensive than AudFree's paid version. And the free trial version is only to record audio files from YouTube and has the 3-minute limitations. So I choose AudFree with better output audio quality.

I had the same issues, here's how to fix it
1. uninstall Windows version of Spotify, install the official version
2. close both programs, and then open Spotify converter only, Spotify will automatically open, and then it will work

Reply   |   Comment by Gary  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Gary, Thanks for the info, but how can I identify if I have the Windows version, and where do I get the "official" version?
My previous problem was trying to drag a song or to find and copy a song's url from Spotify to audfree.
Tnx

Reply   |   Comment by rich  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

If you didn't install Spotify yourself, then it is the Windows version, as it is installed by default. Uninstall it and go to spotify.com for the real version, download and install it. Make sure both Spotify and Spotify Converter are closed after installing. Then open Spotify Converter, and it should automatically open Spotify. It then should work as described, just drag the song or whole album/playlist over.

Gary, I am sure I had the 'official' version but I uninstalled it and reinstalled it (the 'official' version). But, it still does not allow the sound to work.

Reply   |   Comment by Gary  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Gary, Please make sure you have completely deleted the components of the Spotify and re-download the Spotify official web version from: https://download.scdn.co/SpotifySetup.exe.

Reply   |   Comment by Annie Yazbeck  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Annie Yazbeck, When I used your Spotify link, I still get the Windows version installed. I found my old Spotify setup version and installed it (non-Windows). But, still, the sound does not work when AudFree is run. I have Win10.
My Spotify version is 1.1.4.197.g92d52c4f.

Reply   |   Comment by Gary  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

I'm not sure what other tips I can give, I only found all this out by trial and error myself. When I first installed AudFree, a sign come up saying "You do not have the latest version of Spotify". If you've used an old Spotify setup version, it may not recognise it. I downloaded mine from the Spotify website, that is where you'll find the latest version. Hopefully this will work for you.

On Windows 10 doesn't find Spotify, either by dragging the playlists from Spotify app or site. Useless.

It works well. BUT...when AudFree is open, you can't hear the song if you are trying to preview the song in Spotify. You have to first close AudFree to actually hear the song. Once you open AudFree, you can't preview the song in Spotify. Am I missing something????

Reply   |   Comment by Gary Oddi  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Gary Oddi, nope you are not missing anything... the program apears to hook into the playback chain of the desktop spotify program and siphons off the bitstream so it does not reach the spotify sound rendering module.

I'm not sure I understand - is it legal to download music from Spotify? I'd think even with Premium Spotify, there'd be some legal issues?

Reply   |   Comment by Breagha  –  8 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

Breagha, This is a Chinese program as such they are renowned for not respecting the copyrights of other nations artists and service providers. The use of this is a clear breach of the Spotify EUA and is considered to be abusing the streaming servers and denial of ad revenue which is how the free edition of spotify is funded as well as breaching the rights of the copyright owners that have licensed their content to Spotify under very specific terms that this software circumnavigates. Would be like me or some other developer designing and selling a program that decrypted the setup.gcd files produced by giveawayoftheday.com to protect the copyrights holders rights and enforce the licenses by which GAOTD distribute their content as giveaways. I'd have trouble if I did that as I live in a country whose legal system respects the laws laid down to enforce the copyright treaties that we as a nation are signatories to. But if the developer was a Chinese national their legal system does not respect the legal rights of international residents and content producers so they are practically imune to prosicution unless they traveled abroad to jurisdictions that do enforce international copyright infringment prossicution and extradition if required.

As the others write, this program does nothing, besides making a map where the music should be, which is empty.
