  • A virtual sound card needs to be installed for recording Spotify music
  • Only a part of popular English songs can be recorded with ID3 tags, in most cases, you need to manually edit ID3 tags
  • You may need to click the buttons for starting playback, starting recording and stop recording manually and repeatedly
