Getting Started

Download Program

Recordify v1.5

Prerequisites

  • Spotify installed and running on PC
  • Internet connection

Recording a song

  • Extract the ZIP file and run Recordify.exe
  • Drag song(s) from Spotify to Recordify [gif]
  • Ensure correct playback device and bitrate are selected in Settings [gif]
  • For optimal results set Spotify volume to 30% [pic]
  • Ensure no other applications are making noise
  • Choose the desired output directory for the MP3's [gif]
  • Press Play! [gif]

While Recording

  • Do not cause other applications to make noise that will mess up the recording
  • You can mute output of PC so you don't have to hear every song playing [gif]
  • Songs will turn yellow while recording and green when recording is complete. [pic]

Troubleshooting/Questions

Issues with Drag and Drop

  • Check if you can drag and drop Spotify songs into a Word document, if so then the issue is Recordify
  • We have found that installing python 3.5 x64 and wxPython Pheonix should solve your issues

Where's the source code man???

  • This project is currently closed source 😦 but we are working once it is at a stable place the plan is to make it open source.
