Thanks for sharing. I’ve used that tool to download my Tidal music to mp3 player with ease. That amazingly worked!

I downloaded high-quality songs from Tidal to my MP3 players before. But I followed another way to download Tidal music to my MP3 player. It helped me download Tidal songs at a faster speed and download multiple Tidal playlists in one batch.

I noticed that only convert Tidal songs to common MP3 formats then you can play the songs on the MP3 player. Because Tidal music can not be played freely without the Tidal Music app. But if you turn the Tidal songs to local MP3 files, then you can use the songs freely.

I got you. The main point of playing Tidal music on MP3 player is to make downloaded audio files in MP3 player-supported formats. But rather than recording music from Tidal, I use the Tidal Downloader to convert Tidal playlist easily. It can convert Tidal to MP3, or other formats compatible with your MP3 player.
