Taking Spotify as an example, you can easily remove DRM of Spotify music and convert it into DRM-free formats like MP3, AAC, M4A, M4B, WAV, and FLAC.

Method 2. Link Serato with Spotify by Aiseesoft Music Recorder
If you prefer downloading music or audio from more websites and don’t want to install Spotify on your PC, then an audio recorder will be more useful. I recommend Aiseesoft music recorder because of its clear interface, strong features, and professional performance. You can even use it to record online radio as well. The followings are simple steps of downloading Spotify music by Aiseesoft music recorder.
Step 1. Install and launch the Aiseesoft music recorder, and you can find a microphone-like button at the bottom left corner of the main interface. By clicking it, you can do some basic settings in the pop-up like output file path and language under ‘general’ tag.
Step 2. Before recording Spotify music, you should set the audio source first. Just click ‘audio source’ and choose ‘record computer audio’ because the recorder will grab music when it is playing on the same device. After that, the format and bit rate of the output file can be set under the ‘format’ button.
Step 3. To start downloading, you just need to click the ‘start’ button in the upper right corner. Make sure to click this button before music playing in case of incomplete music. When your download completed, Leawo Music Recorder will automatically add information tags of each audio. Of course, you can edit them by right click the track and choosing ‘edit music tags’ button.
Method 3. Import Serato by Spotify with online converter
Online-convert is an all-in-one format conversion website allows you to convert media for free. Now let’s see how to convert music from Spotify into mp3 format so it can be imported into Serato.
Step 1. open the website of online-convert and choose audio converter, by which you can set the output format of audio. Then you need to upload the audio file by pasting the URL of Spotify music. Before conversion, you can do some settings like bitrate of audio.
Step 2. To start conversion, you just need to paste the URL of Spotify music. When the conversion finished, a pop-up window will appear to let you download the file.
Method 4. Use DJay Pro to reach Spotify integration
Algoriddim’s DJay Pro can seamlessly integrate the Spotify music library, which is convenient for DJs and music creators. For people who have used to Serato, it may take the time to get familiar with the operation of DJay. Both two software have their pros and cons, if your music library is Spotify mostly, I recommend DJay because you don’t have to do the conversion and will have more time to create.
