Part 2. Extra Tips on Ripping Spotify Songs to MP3

#1. Rip MP3 from Spotify with Audio Recorder

Aside from using professional Spotify music converter, you can use some audio recorders like TuneFab Audio Recorder to rip MP3 audio from Spotify. But this method has some shortcomings. For example, you will need to play Spotify music during the whole recording and you won't be able to use your computer unless the recording is finished. What's worse, the audio recorder won't help you split songs automatically and it cannot save the ID3 tags of the Spotify music. So, it's better using TuneFab Spotify Music Converter if you need to rip music from Spotify.

#2. Use Spotify VK Downloader to Rip Spotify Music

Spotify VK Downloader is a chrome extension that enables users to find and download songs from Spotify. But it can only save the songs available in, otherwise you cannot get the Spotify tracks downloaded.
