Save legally the music of Spotify and Deezer

Thank you all for your participation in our July contest.
Follow us on the networks to be informed of the next Current Trends events.

Les sites Deezer et Spotify proposent d’écouter de la musique gratuitement et légalement, en streaming. Voici une méthode permettant d’enregistrer gratuitement la musique de Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer ou toutes autres sources audio.

Note: The audio capture (the method we will use) is completely legal.

Pour commencer, il vous faut un enregistreur audio. Vous pouvez utiliser celui de Windows nommé « Magnétophone », mais je vous conseille fortement d’utiliser un logiciel plus complet comme Audacitywhich is completely free.

Install Audacity

Download and install Audacity si ce n’est pas fait puis lancez le logiciel.

Choisir la source audio de l’enregistrement

Choisissez la source audio : dans notre cas, pour enregistrer le son qui provient de l’ordinateur, choisissez la source audio Stéréo Mix ou Wave. Si l’enregistrement échoue (aucun son enregistré, son accéléré, etc.) choisissez l’autre source audio.

Audio source - Audacity

Démarrer l’enregistrement

Dans Audacity, cliquez sur le bouton rouge pour démarrer l’enregistrement.

Start recording - Audacity

Start playing music to record on Deezer, Spotify, etc.

Allez sur Deezer, Spotify, etc., puis lancer la lecture de la musique à enregistrer. Attendez la fin de la musique, puis arrêtez l’enregistrement en cliquant sur le bouton Stop.

Stop recording - Audacity

Silence suppression

You can delete the silence before and after the music by selecting the part to be removed and pressing the Delete key. To be more precise, by holding down the CTRL key, you can zoom in and out with the mouse wheel. If you made a mistake, you can cancel going to Edit> Cancel.


Export music

Il ne vous reste plus qu’à exporter votre musique. Allez dans Fichier > Exporter, choisissez l’emplacement, le nom et le format de l’enregistrement. Cliquez ensuite sur Enregistrer.

Note: if you are using an older version of Audacity, you may need the plugin Blade to convert and export music to MP3. You can download this plugin using the following links: Blade for Windows or Blade for Mac OS.

Record MP3 - Audacity

You can add metadata (also called tags) to your music, then click OK.

Your music is now saved to the location you have chosen.

Thank you very much for the article. I really appreciate Audacity, but with Tunebite, the recording works even better because it is, as you specify: automated. More songs are saved in mp3 on the hard drive.
