As streaming music services become more and more popular, the competition in this field is getting stronger and stronger. When coming to the best music streaming services, one of the options that will certainly show up is Spotify. For years, Spotify has built great reputation and attracts 180 million active users, the largest customer base, for its unbeatable advantages.
Firstly, Spotify is user-friendly. The simple and concise interface enables all the operations in Spotify to be much easier than other streaming music services. You can easily find all the things you need - explore new music, organize your playlists, listen to the radio, and more. Secondly, you can enjoy Spotify songs for free. Spotify is an ad-supported freemium service. It offers free and paid membership. Spotify Free users are able to listen to Spotify songs, create playlists, discover new music, share Spotify songs with friends, and more, while listening to ad-free Spotify songs offline are confined to Spotify Premium subscribers only. Thirdly, you can use Spotify in your web browser. And if you want to listen to your Spotify songs when travelling, you can download and install Spotify app.
But as we all know, all the songs on Spotify are DRM-protected, for which we are unable to download them as local files. Therefore, we find all kinds of Spotify music downloaders popping up to help Spotify users save Spotify songs to local computer. By comparison, NoteBurner is the most welcomed one, in view of the interface, operation, stability, and so on.
In this article, we are going to give you an overview of the program and show you how to download songs from Spotify Music to a Windows computer with NoteBurner Spotify Music Converter step by step.
A concise interface can always help users get familiar with a program immediately. When launching NoteBurner Spotify Music Converter, we'll see several buttons clearly – “Add” button on the upper right, “Settings” button on the upper right and “Convert” button in the center, and more.

If you are looking for a program to download songs from Spotify, NoteBurner Spotify Music Converter is definitely a perfect one. But what needs to be mentioned here is that NoteBurner is a shareware instead of a freeware. Thus we advise you download the trial version first and then decide whether you want to get the program with one time purchase at $39.95 but life-long free updates and technical support.
