How to Convert Tidal Music to WAV Format


We recently saw some users leave a message asking how to save his Tidal playlist to a computer in WAV format. Obviously, just downloading Tidal songs offline to a mobile device won't satisfy everyone's needs. Of course, when it comes to today's hot streaming music platform, you have to admit that Tidal has earned its place with its high-fidelity sound quality. Maybe you can turn to other platforms, such as Spotify, to be able to listen to songs offline on your computer. But this doesn't completely solve the problem. Virtually all streaming music platforms have a joint "flaw": their playlists are only accessible on select devices through their official mobile or desktop apps.

So, do you want to burn Tidal music to CD? Would you like to mix Tidal music on DJ software? Want to save Tidal playlists on an external hard drive to save space on your phone or computer? Then you have come to the right place. This article will introduce to you how to use a professional Tidal to WAV converter to help you convert Tidal Music to WAV format. Just a few simple steps! Let's start.

Part 1: What is WAV Format?

WAV is short for Waveform Audio File Format, developed jointly by Microsoft and IBM as an audio file standard for storing digital audio in 1991 on PC. Its file extension is .wav or .wave. WAV is an uncompressed format, so it's usually not suitable for the early days of the internet. But the uncompressed WAVs are useful for professionals who require the best sound playback quality.

You should distinguish that uncompressed formats are different from the lossless compressed formats, like FLAC. The latter are compressed, but no information is lost. By contrast, WAV files own a huge file size.

Part 2: WAV vs. MP3

I think you must be very familiar with the MP3 format, which is a very versatile audio format. But because MP3 uses lossy compression, some data will be irreversibly lost when encoding the MP3 file. File size and transfer efficiency are the strengths of this format. But there are also complaints about the quality of MP3 files, which means the audio files have a low bitrate. The bit rate of MP3 files is usually between 90 kbps and 320 kbps.

However, whether you want to choose MP3 or WAV format still depends on the purpose and application of the audio file. The WAV format is excellent when working with audio or recording podcasts and voiceovers. Of course, if you want lossless sound quality but don't have enough storage space on your device, you can consider using a lossless compression format like FLAC. If you just want to download and share with other relatives and friends, it is better to choose the MP3 format.
