Step 2Then copy and paste the registration Email and Code into the registration window. Select "Register" to confirm.

2. How to Download TIDAL Music to a Mac Computer?
Step 1. Select Songs from TIDAL
· Get TIDAL Music from the Web Player
When you start the program, it defaults to getting songs from the Tidal web player.
Step 1Tidal (Web player) supports HiFi sound quality and conversion speed up to 10X. When you choose the Tidal (Web player) option, you will be presented with two main pages: the primary interface and the integrated Tidal web player, which opens automatically within TunePat. In case the web player doesn't appear automatically, you can access it by clicking the "Open the web player window" button in red, as shown in the image below.
Step 2Within the Tidal web player window, you will find on-screen instructions guiding you to click the "Log in" button and enter your Tidal account details. Sign in using your Tidal Free, HiFi, or HiFi Plus account. Once you have successfully logged in, you will have seamless access to Tidal's library.
Step 3Now, open the desired song, album, playlist, or podcast and select the "Click to add" button. This action will prompt TunePat to automatically detect and load the songs. On this page, all songs will be selected by default. You can manually choose the titles by ticking them off and then click the "Add" button.
*Note: To avoid having duplicate song files in the same location on your Mac, you can enable the "Filter Converted" option in this step. When activated, TunePat will detect existing tracks and gray them out, making them unselectable in the current list.
· Get TIDAL Music from the APP
Step 1If you wish to convert music from the TIDAL app, you can go to the "Settings" module. Find the first option named "Convert Option". Then click to select "Record from App". When you choose to convert TIDAL songs from the App, you can enjoy up to Master (Max) quality (at 1X conversion speed).
To proceed, ensure that you have already installed the TIDAL app. If not, you will be prompted to download it from the official website by clicking the "Download App" button.
Step 2After the installation is complete, log in to your TIDAL account. If you have already logged in, proceed to the next step.
Step 3Now, add the songs, playlists, albums, or podcasts you wish to convert to TunePat from the TIDAL app. You can simply drag and drop the desired item to the specified position on the home page interface or copy and paste its link to the box of TunePat for analysis. A popup window will display the parsed content. By default, all items will be selected, but you can manually check or remove them as needed. Finally, click the "Add" button to import these titles into TunePat.
Step 2. Change the Output Settings As you Preferences
Before proceeding to convert your desired content from the TIDAL app or TIDAL web player, it is essential to configure the output settings. To do this, click on the "Settings" option located in the lower left corner of the menu bar.
Within this window, you can customize various parameters according to your preferences. These parameters include the conversion mode (Intelligent Mode, Web Download, YouTube Download), output format (AUTO, MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV, AIFF, ALAC), bit rate, sample rate, output path, and the option to enable automatic pop-up windows after conversion. Additionally, you can choose how Tidal output files are named and organized based on your requirements.
If you wish to obtain music with the same parameters as the source file (For example, want to save Master or HiFi sound quality), simply select "Auto" as the output format. This mode also provides the fastest conversion speed.
Tips: You can see a "Save lyrics (if provided)" button in the Settings module, which is disabled by default. When you enable this button, it allows users to get and download TIDAL lyrics in LRC or TXT format.
Step 3. Export TIDAL Music as Local Files
Step 1 The selected TIDAL songs will be saved in the main interface of the program. At this point, you have two options. If you wish to continue selecting more songs for conversion, click the "Add More" button on this interface. Alternatively, click the "Convert" button to initiate the conversion process for all the songs listed on the current page. If you accidentally choose the wrong song, you can use the "Delete All" button to clear the current list with a single click.
Step 2 Once the conversion is complete, you can navigate to the "Converted" module to find the successfully converted TIDAL songs. From there, you can directly transfer them to iTunes, or transfer them to any other devices of your choice. This allows you to enjoy your TIDAL music tracks anywhere and at any time.
