How to import Spotify songs to GarageBand?

The way records are made has changed dramatically. A few decades ago, making an album required a ton of gear. Now, you can do it with software built into every Apple computer, thanks to the free GarageBand. GarageBand starts with a simple set of templates for making popular tunes. If you're the kind of composer or songwriter who just wants to put notes into a DAW, have a great sounding set, quantize with one click, and make everything sound great in minutes, then GarageBand is the DAW you're looking for.

When you’re making music in GarageBand, you may want to pull in other types of audio. You can import music and audio files into GarageBand on both Mac and iOS. Many Spotify users ask is it possible to import Spotify music to GarageBand? Well, GarageBand does not support streaming music. If you want to import Spotify music to GarageBand, you need to use a professional third-party program to download Spotify music as unprotected audio files, such as MP3. Music downloaded through premium accounts won't work, because they are not playable audio files, and these files can only be recognized by Spotify. Ondesoft Spotify Converter can help you download Spotify tracks or playlists to common audio file formats, including MP3, M4A, WAV, FLAC, OGG, AIFF. After conversion, you will get almost all metadata and ID3 tags, including title, artwork, artist, album, genre, in order to organize your music library.
