Part 3: Download 20 Best New Year Songs 2020 with Music Recorder

If you want the best place to find all the songs mentioned above, then Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, and Google Play Music will be your ultimate stop as these will most certainly guarantee you to find the song you are looking for. In fact, it is reported that Apple Music has over 30 million songs in its library music library. However, the best places to find the music have copyright protection imposed on them, which basically means you will not be able to download the music for free or however you want it. However, there is always a way to bypass those kinds of restrictions, and you still can get the songs you want for free. This brings us to Leawo Music Recorder which is a powerful tool that you can use to record computer audio effortlessly with 100% of the original quality preserved. It is a very intuitive application that is very easy to use, because of its simple operation as well as a modern interface. You can use this software to record from the microphone, or other built-in audio streams like Realtek High Definition Audio, Dolby Atmos and much more.

Step 1: First set the audio source. You can do this if you click the “Add Source” button from the bottom left corner. Proceed to choose “Record Computer Audio” in the Audio Settings panel.

Bonus: How to Transfer Songs from PC to iPhone with iTransfer

No matter you have downloaded the songs from free websites or you have recorded them by using Leawo Music Recorder mentioned above, transferring the music to an iPhone will not be the same as you do with Android phone, and it requires software tools. Apple has iTunes for that purpose, but it is very limited in terms of functionality and will even delete your entire music library before you sync new ones in some cases. For that reason, we will introduce Leawo iTransfer which is much more capable than iTunes in terms of managing the files contained on your iPhone, or pretty much any iOS-based device. Unlike iTunes, this software will not delete anything in your music library and will just add the downloaded new year songs to your library.

It also allows you to make backups of your content from your iOS devices to your computer in the event that you may lose your data. Up to 12 types of file types are supported and these include photos, bookmarks, calendars, contacts, messages, settings and everything else that is important for backing up. It supports all iPhone models from the 3rd generation, iPad models from the first generation and iPod models from the first generation. Download and install this software on Windows or Mac to start.
