It’s not uncommon for SACDs to come with both a stereo and a multi-channel layer. I have a few of those, and run into issues importing them with beets. As both layers have the exact same tracks, I often time end up with directories that contain a fix of both layers.
Here’s a concrete example: https://musicbrainz.org/release/c4f4d4f8-33d9-4ddc-aa44-3cbd134fadf9
When importing both the stereo and the multi-channel tracks, they import is matched against the release above. It does all the metadata magic it’s supposed to be doing, however, I end up with my Disc 01 directory containing all the stereo tracks - except for track 2&3, which are from the multi-channel layer. On Disc 02, it the exact opposite of course - track 2&3 are from the stereo layer.
a) I can’t determine from the output upon import that such a thing is happening. Or can I?
b) Is there an easy way to fix this? Especially since the title of the tracks will differ after import?
c) Are there any other ways to influence the import?
