Spotify is a popular music service that allows you to play millions of songs and podcasts for free. With it, you always can enjoy the music you like for the first time. For some music creators and DJs, they may want to download or record a good melody or podcast from Spotify and do secondary creation with Serato DJ. Here are some ways to download music from Spotify for Serato.
Part 1. Download Spotify Music/Podcast Offline.
Part 2. Import Spotify Music to Serato.
Method 1. Import Spotify Playlist to Serato with Musify Music Downloader
Musify Music Downloader helps you free download and convert online music to Mp3/FLAC/WAV/M4V, etc, without premium. Taking Spotify as an example, you can easily remove the DRM of Spotify music and convert it into DRM-free formats like MP3, AAC, M4A, M4B, WAV, and FLAC. Surprisingly, you even can import a whole Spotify playlist/album to Serato with the help of Musify. Now let’s take a look at its usage in steps.
Step 1. Download and install Musify
Download and install the latest version of Musify Music Downloader on your PC or MAC, then launch it.
Step 2. Find the link and paste it to Musify
There are many ways to get music from Spotify with Musify. You can either log in to your account on the web player or the application on your computer. Then search and browse the music, podcast episode, album, or playlist you want to download offline. Hover your mouse and right-click on it. Then move to the Share tab and select the “Copy Song Link“, “Copy Link to Playlist“, “Copy Album Link” or “Copy Episode Link“.
Now you can go back to Musify and click on the Paste URL button and the download will begin automatically. All files in the list will be downloaded one by one in the format you want.
After a few minutes, you can check the Downloaded tab, and all files can be found by single click the folder icon at the right side of each music loaded in Musify, so you can import them to Serato conveniently.
Tips: To do some settings about the export file, you can set the format and quality of output files, the output file path by single click the setting icon at the right side of the program window.
Method 2. Link Serato with Spotify by Aiseesoft Music Recorder
If you prefer ripping a small segment of music or audio from more websites, then an audio recorder will be more useful. I recommend the 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 with 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 the ‘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 is completed, Aiseesoft Music Recorder will automatically add information tags to each audio. Of course, you can edit them by right click the track and choosing the ‘edit music tags’ button.
Method 3. Import Serato by Spotify with online converter
Online-convert is an all-in-one format conversion website that 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 an 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 is finished, a pop-up window will appear to let you download the file.
However, the conversion speed is always slow and the rate of success conversion is not 100%. You can not download the whole playlist in this way, either.
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 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.
How to import music to Serato after conversion?
Maybe you have chosen one way above to convert Spotify into the format Serato supported. Now you just need to import them to Serato. Here is a brief description of the import steps.
1. Run Serato and click the ‘File’ button to start conversion.
2. Locate the audio you got from Spotify and drag the target file or folder to the ‘All…’ button.
3. If successful, you will see the audio name in the Serato DJ Lite library and use it to start your mix.
