Replay Music is one of the BEST best music capturing programs. It is a unique software that can capture songs from ANY Intenet radio station or online music service. Replay Music splits, tags and renames songs automatically. It can capture songs no matter what streaming format or protocol is used. And it can even capture audio from sound card when you don't have the Stereo Mix / Wave-Out Mix / Record What U Hear on your Windows 8, 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. So even if you have problems recording sound on your PC, you can still use Replay Music for recording songs on it.
Replay Music is the BEST software for capturing music from Spotify. It allows to split, tag and rename songs from Spotify automatically. It can also put all your recorded songs into the appropriate folder and even add them into iTunes, so you may sync your recorded music collection with Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod.
Unlike many other Spotify music capturing programs, it captures music directly from Spotify, so you don't capture any background noise or any audio from your sound card besides songs from Spotify.
How to use Replay Music to capture songs from Spotify and other online music services:
Download Replay Music (Spotify music capturing program) and install it.
Launch Replay Music (Spotify music capturing program)
Hit the "Settings" button.
On the "Input" tab choose the directory to store your recorded songs.
Spotify recorded songs will be placed into the directory after capturing.
On the same tab, choose the "Windows Audio Driver" as the "Input Source" in Windows 7 and 8 (choose the "Audio Driver" in Windows XP). This option allows you to capture songs from audio card without any background noise and sounds. It also allows you to capture audio on sound cards like Realtek, Sigmatel that doesn't have the Stereo Mix / Wave-out Mix / Record What U Hear option. It is recommended that you turn off Windows system sounds.
On the "Output" tab change the "File name format" if you like to capture song into another format. You can use the "%A - %T" template, so that your MP3 recorded songs look like "artist - title.mp3".
On the same tab choose "Record to MP3" and change the bit-rate to 192kbps or 256kbps (you may also choose lower bitrate for lower quality streams or higher bitrate for higher quality streams). Also select the "VBR" (variable bit-rate) for better quality and smaller filesize.
Close the Settings window.
Note that you need to change the Settings only once.
Start Spotify and find a song or playlist that you want to capture. But don't start playing yet.

You can also edit songs manually by hitting the "Edit Track(s)" button.
Enjoy your MP3 recordings on any player!
