im a new user of beets and i don’t know if this is already a feature or not. and i love it btw.
I need to use the genre of the tracks in the paths but the variable $genres only refers to the album genre and there is not a variable for the track genre.
this is tricky becouse with this config:
There is actually a special formatting mode for paths that makes album-level information take precedence:
This is important because most people include album-level fields in their paths when they want to group albums together. So a path like $genre/$artist/$album would, by default, get “broken up” into different directories if the $genre field differed across items. Preferring album-level data keeps things coalesced together as much as possible.
