I was using different software (in past it was iTunes => Banshee) to organize my library in a simple way by ID3 tags.
The structure was: [ARTIST]/[ALBUM]/[TRACK_NO] - [TRACK_NAME]
Unfortunately Banshee is not usable anymore in modern Linux distribution. So I decided to use beets to keep my music library organized.
I have some “multidisc” albums in my collection. But I do not handle them as multidisc albums. I just handle separate discs as different albums. It worked with every software I used before and it works great with my car audio (which is usually very stupid, cause car makers just can’t make working electronics…).
In short, I just have 3CD album named ‘Somealbum’. But in ID3 tags and in my library it’s just 3 different albums:
But beets is stubbornly merging those album in one directory in my library (which is bad for that car audio). So it creates only one directory: Someartist/Somealbum (CD3). And into that directory it puts all songs from all 3 “albums”. But why when it should be different albums in different folders?
I just want to achieve to have this structure:
Is there a way to achieve this behavior?
My config is:
directory: ~/Music library: ~/.beets-data/musiclibrary.db asciify_paths: yes plugins: fetchart import: copy: no write: no move: yes autotag: no paths: default: $albumartist/$album/$track $title set_fields: multidisc: 0
