Part 1. How to Transfer Music to Video from Tidal

Do you know the reason why you can't find Tidal music files in a local folder? It is due to a kind of digital music protection, which exists in every piece of Tidal song. The pro is that prevents users from illegally pirate and distribute music. And the con is also obvious: subscribers don't have the ownership of any songs, even if they have paid monthly subscription fee. Some streaming music services will provide an individual store for buying tracks, for example, songs and albums in Apple Music can be bought singly. But Tidal doesn't give this choice to its customers. It only offers a single subscription mode. And Tidal fans can only listen to their favorite streams in Tidal app, online or offline.

Therefore, to get the ownership of Tidal songs for personal use, you need a third-party audio converter to take off the protection from Tidal tracks. In the market, there are many similar products named Tidal converter, but most of them are Tidal recorder in essential. The difference between converter and recorder is the way how it recodes the audio data.
