MUSIC STREAMING IS HOT
Spotify and Tidal offer millions songs ready for streaming in different sound qualities. It would be great to have your favorite streaming music content, songs, playlists, and albums all available on your local storage. Tidal Music doesn’t allow downloading to a local storage unit for offline playing due to copyright protection, including Tidal Hi-Fi(Plus). This is why Tidal users need third-party Tidal music converters in order to make this happen. Any user would like the ability to download their Tidal music selection and transfer their selection to any device for playing without using the Tidal app. Macsome as some other developers made all this possible by providing Macsome Tidal Music Downloader for Mac.
MACSOME TIDAL MUSIC CONVERTER
Tidal Music Downloader for Mac is developed by Macsome Technology. It allows Tidal Free and HiFi users to download the music for offline playback. Most developers created a true standalone application which needed the official Tidal app for connection to your account and the drag and drop functionality to transfer track locations to the conversion app. Macsome has developed an all in one application not needing the official Tidal app anymore. Macsome Tidal Music Downloader is able to convert to various audio formats like MP3, AAC, ALAC, AIFF, WAV, and the FLAC with original sound quality kept.
MACSOME TIDAL MUSIC DOWNLOADER INTERFACE
Tidal Music Downloader is a truly well designed application presenting your Tidal interface once activated. If you need a truly simple and reliable program, well this is a great and maybe the best option.
As mentioned a web version of the Tidal Music player is embedded into the downloader/converter. So you do not have to download and install the Tidal application itself. It’s easy to use, and won’t take up much space or resources on your computer.
The application fully supports the Mac dark setting and uses a nice typeface which makes it look modern and sophisticated as well. The output Settings parameters are fully customizable to your needs. Just select your format, bit and sample rate. Choose your desired location and you’re all set really.
Support for Tidal Free and Tidal HiFi accounts
All Tidal (Free or Tidal HiFi) plans, are supported. Macsome Tidal Music Downloader allows you to download all streams of your Tidal Music library without any limitations. But again this is not allowed by copyright, we just review the application.
- Available formats are MP3, AAC, ALAC, AIFF, WAV, and FLAC.
- Macsome Tidal Music Converter allows one time conversion of your full list
- Converting music as fast as 10 times faster than the play time
- Preserve ID3 Tags and Organize Tidal Music Library
Which sound format is best
Considering ‘Uncompressed codecs’ don’t change anything to the original sound, we could consider WAV and AIFF to be best for the best approach to highest quality.
However a lossless file, like the FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is compressed to nearly half the size of an uncompressed WAV or AIFF of equivalent sample rate, but there should be no “loss” in terms of how it sounds. FLAC files can also provide a resolution of up to 32-bit, 96kHz, so equal or better than CD quality. Numerous tests have proven that normal FLAC, 16 bit and 320kbps is as good as the human hearing gets generally. Studio’s use higher settings and full uncompressed audio only to enhance their recording techniques.
So if storage is an issue FLAC is your best friend, but if storage is plenty available, WAV or AIFF is best.
So by now you know which codec you prefer and have the bit and sample rate set. Time to start your first download/conversion of your Tidal music library.
So, you’ve selected your album and now set for song selection. All is left for you to do is hit the ‘Convert Now’ button and the application will do its trick. Macsome Tidal Music Downloader can download any music from Tidal, including Tidal tracks, albums and playlists, at up to 10x faster speed. Well they claim its potential as I can not check their claim in practice.
Preserve ID3 Tags and organize your Tidal Music Library
To help you organize and discover your downloaded Tidal music files, Macsome Tidal Music Downloader can not only download music from Tidal, but also get the downloaded Tidal music with the 100% original ID3 tags preserved, including Title, Album, Artist, Artwork, Track Number, Disc Number, Year, and other metadata information in output audio.
Our final remark is that Macsome created a one trick pony providing a download and conversion toolbox without any real limitations for any Tidal user.
