beets to manage and organise your music library? Read the ‘getting started‘ guide? An additional quick tip:
Import your first few albums individually using
beet import -t $album_directory
-t flag is for timid(ly).
Why? If you’re like me, you might not be in 100% agreement with how MusicBrainz represents the match metadata; and
-t will ask for confirmation which you can either accept (
A) or reject (
U for ‘Use as-is’).
If the first few matches are fine, you can drop the flag; if not, you can figure out how to finesse it to import files to your liking via
beets‘s excellent plugins.
