Hi, just started using Beets and it’s amazing! I want to reorganize my music collection and was hoping to use beets to copy information in one field to another.
I found a solution, not sure if there is a more elegant way.
- export the tag information you need
beet ls -f ‘$id,$albumartist’ genre:classical > tag_export.csv
2 run this bash script below
while IFS=“,” read -r ID TEXT
beet modify -y comment=“$TEXT” id:“$ID”
done < tag_export.csv
Thanks, that was exactly what I was looking for. Formatted modify is really great feature. Thanks again.
