    Hi, Nikhil. Thank you very much for the valuable guide. You saved my time. I used to save tumblr audio with a web-base tool calls Acethinker video downloader, free and works pretty well. Share it here as an alternative method.

    Wow, thank you so much. I use the method 3 and it really worked! I used to download music with a desktop tool called HD Video Converter Factory. But now I have more choices to download music from the Internet. Thank you again for your sharing.
