How to Convert Tidal music to FLAC

TIDAL has two HiFi subscription options - HiFi(30 days free then $9.99 / month) and HiFi Plus(30 days free then $19.99 / month).

A TIDAL HiFi membership supports the following sound options:

A TIDAL HiFi Plus membership supports additional, innovative sound formats:

  • Master - Original master recordings - authenticated by the record label or artist themselves. Unrivaled quality, clarity and depth delivering all file sizes (up to 24 bit / 352kHz), using no more bandwidth than a CD quality (16 bit / 44.1kHZ) file (up to 9216 Kbps or 24 bit / 192 kHz).
  • Immersive Audio - Allows sounds to be precisely and spatially placed. We are the only service to support both 360 Reality Audio and Dolby Atmos on mobile devices.
  • HiFi - Lossless quality audio (1411kbps or 16bit / 44.1kHz).
  • High - Best compromise between data usage and sound quality (320kbps AAC).
  • Normal - Reduced data usage for slower connections.

Same as other music streaming services, Tidal songs are not available for download to local files. You can only download the songs to your Amazon Music app for offline playback.

Tidal songs are only accessible within the Tidal app. It isn't possible to export titles for use on other apps and devices. You can't copy them onto CDs and other external storage.

If you want to download Tidal songs to store them locally or to import them to another media player, like iTunes or Windows Media Player, you will need a professional Tidal Music Converter - Pazu Tidal Music Converter . To keep the lossless music quality, it allows you to convert Tidal music to FLAC format.

What is FLAC?

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, and it’s a digital audio file format like MP3, but with a major, important difference: it is a lossless file type—meaning that no audio data is discarded during the encoding process. This results in significantly larger files than MP3.
