Please note: Spotify download tools do not record from Spotify!

There are various music recorders for Windows going around the internet that claim to record MP3 files from Spotify. In reality, however, these tools simply download music videos from YouTube, extracting the audio and saving it as an MP3 file. This means that the music you are left with is not only bad quality, but is also often not even a studio recording. Quite often the audio is simply a recording made at a concert or even a cover version.
