DRmare Tidal Music Converter


Hi- thought this forum might help with respect to this topic. I'm an active runner and use a Garmin 945, which supports amazon music and some other services, but not Tidal.  In searching for solutions, I see there are a number of software programs out there that claim to convert tidal to files on your computer which can then be loaded into your watch. Has anyone used these with success? Are they legit?  Just looking to avoid inadvertently downloading some software that then destroys my computer... Thanks in advance!   To answer a question some may have, I have amazon music as well, but there are a lot of songs I like that it doesn't have (EDM stuff for running) and I'm locked into Tidal for another year (BestBuy just had a great deal at $49 for a year of Tidal HIFI) so I am ringfencing my solution path here to using Tidal.

Thanks!

Are they legit?
Speaking as a software engineer, there are ways to capture an audio stream as it moves through the system, and I have no reason to doubt that the software works as claimed.

The other question is whether it is legitimate and legal to use such software. The music label would consider it to be piracy. It allows you to make a copy of music that you can continue to use without a Tidal subscription. From Tidal's standpoint, it is a violation of the terms and conditions of using their service (many of those conditions are required by the music labels in their license agreement with Tidal).

You could make the argument that you are operating within the spirit of the law if you intend to delete the music files after you end your Tidal subscription, but then we are getting into a murky area. To be fully compliant you need to be using a device that supports Tidal.
Use Tidal on Garmin? I have had a successful experience with this with the aid of a third-party Tidal music converter from AudFree. Using the tool, I convert Tidal songs to common audio formats like MP3 and then save them to a local folder with lossless quality. Then, I just need to import local Tidal songs to my Garmin by Garmin Express app.

Thanks for your sharing, but why not give it a try to use the word's first Tidal Music Converter from UkeySoft. It allows you to download Tidal songs at batch at 10X speed, and work at a stable and fast speed. I have ever used this tool to convert Tidal music to MP3 and M4A files.
With this Tidal converter, either Tidal premium users or Tidal Free users are able to download music, albums, playlists from Tidal to computer, As the name suggests, it does convert Tidal to lossless MP3, WAV, and other lossy M4A audio formats, so that you can offline enjoy Tidal music on computer, or listening Tidal music on MP3 player, iPod nano, PSP, Xbox, etc.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful resources! They're a great help! mp3 downloader

Thank you. I am using UkeySoft Tidal Music Converter. So far so good. The output quality is good enough, and it runs very fast. With the built-in Tidal Web Player, it enables users to download music from Tidal Free & HiFi, and convert Tidal music to MP3, M4A, AAC, FLAC, WAV, AIFF with no quality loss. 

You can use Audacity to record the audio outputs on your PC and then export the project to various lossless (FLAC) or lossy formats.

 

According to Consumer Reports (ca. 2015), this type of recording is legal but it probably violates Tidal's terms of service so they can terminate your account.
