Part 1. Tool to Add Spotify Music to Premiere Pro

As we all know, the obvious shortcoming of streaming music services is that the music they provided are encrypted files, which means you can only listen to music from the provider's app or website. This causes a huge inconvenience to those video makers, for the reason that most video cutters such as Premiere Pro, only support to import songs from a local folder. Hence, to put Spotify music to Premiere Pro, we need to figure out how to download Spotify music as local audio files.
