Once you enter the URL, the app shows you a preview of the selected song to ensure that it is the right one. The artwork you see in the preview will be downloaded along with the song
- Save to Your PC Locally
Now you are ready to convert and save the song to your PC. Under the “convert to” option, click on “Audio” and then select “MP3” as the file format.
Now click on the PC icon under the “save to” option so you can download the song locally to your computer. Once the download is finished, you can find the song in the Downloads folder on your PC, along with its cover art.
Open the song with Windows Media Player. You will notice that SYC2 has already filled in the relevant artwork of the song and it will appear on Windows Media Player. Congratulations! You’re all done. You can similarly download and save hundreds of songs to your PC locally with SYC2.
Today, listening to songs without cover art feels like something is missing. They are a modern form of art that gives the music its aesthetic appeal. For instance, the album cover of Horses by Patti Smith is so beautiful that listening to music without its cover art won’t do justice to the album. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and download the songs using SYC2.
