Beets is the media library management system for obsessive music geeks.
The purpose of beets is to get your music collection right once and for all. It catalogs your collection, automatically improving its metadata as it goes. It then provides a bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing your music.
Here's an example of beets' brainy tag corrector doing its thing::
$ beet import ~/music/ladytron Tagging: Ladytron - Witching Hour (Similarity: 98.4%) * Last One Standing -> The Last One Standing * Beauty -> Beauty*2 * White Light Generation -> Whitelightgenerator * All the Way -> All the Way...
Because beets is designed as a library, it can do almost anything you can imagine for your music collection. Via
_, beets becomes a panacea:
acoustic fingerprints ``` _.
\_ levels, or
Beatport ``` _. Or guess metadata using songs' filenames or their acoustic fingerprints.
Discogs ```_ , and
_ to any format you like.
_ or for
duplicate tracks and albums
albums that are missing tracks
_ protocol and works with a staggering variety of interfaces.
If beets doesn't do what you want yet,
writing your own plugin
_ is shockingly simple if you know a little Python.
