FAQs on Converting Spotify to M4A Converter

Q1: Do the converted M4A files have the same quality as the original Spotify tracks?

A: When using NoteBurner to convert Spotify tracks to M4A, the quality of the converted files depends on your original Spotify audio sources. If you are a Spotify Free user, the converted Spotify M4A files are typically at 160kbps. While for Spotify Premium listeners, you could get 320kbps very high quality after conversion.

Tips: It's important to note that converting a file from Spotify's Ogg Vorbis to another lossy format can result in some loss of audio quality due to the compression algorithms used. So NoteBurner created a new technology - the "AUTO" output format. Using this setting, NoteBurner will not convert your music tracks, and directly download Spotify tracks into the .m4a container instead. By this, you won't get any quality loss after conversion.

Q2: Can I convert local audio to M4A?

A: Yes, you can convert local audio files to M4A format. There's a "Format Converter" on NoteBurner's toolbox. You can use it to convert audio files between MP3/M4A/FLAC/WAV/OGG/AIFF format. This tool is totally free to use.
