How to Record Music from Rhapsody in MP3 Format?

Rhapsody is rebranding itself to Napster which is known in the past for ripping piracy music. In regards to music and service it’s still the same with prices which are pretty similar to other music streaming sites. Knowing it now as Napster does not mean you can download your music for free and share like in the past but you only download and listen to it on your Android and iOS devices except Windows which is limited. On Napster you can get a free 30 day trial to be able to listen to their expensive plan and a 7 day trial on their low cost plan. If you’re planning to download music from Napster, I suggest to record it which is now the best way using the best audio recorder.


Napster’s audio quality ranges from 64kbps-320kbps (AAC) which still can’t compare to other streaming sites which offer more quality but 320kbps would be acceptable to most listeners. An audio recorder that can record lossless quality and able to convert it to MP3 is highly recommendable.

Download Cinch Audio Recorder and install.


Just follow the steps which will be shown to you. 

How to Record Music from Rhapsody in MP3 Format?

Step 1: Launch Cinch Audio Recorder and register for limitless music recording.

Click the circular button to “start recording” which is located on the upper right.

A quick reminder for limitless recording music, you need to register and get lifetime updates.

Step 2: Play your favorite music at Napster (formerly Rhapsody)

Just click the play button while Cinch is recording it. You can either turn on or mute your audio on your computer since Cinch uses CAC technology that records the core-audio to have high quality music.

The recorded music are saved as lossless WAV then convert Rhapsody to MP3 (320kbps) audio format automatically. It’s useless to record the 64kbps even though it will be converted to lossless WAV later on, it will still sound crappy.

Step 3: If your playing only one track, you can click the “Stop recording” button on Cinch.

When you’re playing a playlist, you can just leave it until all of the songs are recorded. Cinch has a good feature which splits music automatically between songs. Just wait for 8-15 seconds for the recorded song to appear on Cinch playlist menu.

Step 4: You can check the tags at the playlist menu if it’s correct. Seldom when it happens when you need to edit it manually since Cinch has near 100% accuracy when it comes to its ID3 tagging features.

Organizing the tracks happens automatically after recording which all of the track locations are in a specific folder for you to check and manage to affirm.

Cinch is very easy to use since its functions are plainly simple for easy understanding. Saving all MP3 recordings to a microSD or a storage device is now possible for listening anytime and anywhere you want without the need of data usage.
