Ripping many different CDs into a single folder.

    Hello Kenneth,

    When a CD is ripped to the Vault, the Vault will read the fingerprint of the CD (number of tracks and length of each track) to find the best available match on the servers of our metadata providers. Once a match is made, the BluOS app will automatically embed this metadata and put the ripped music files in the corresponding folder. 

    With that being said, there is no way to have your albums stored to a specific folder before ripping and any changes to where you would like this album will need to take place after the CD has been ripped.

    Regards,
    Wesley P.

    Bummer! Pre-selecting a folder prior to ripping would be a great feature. Out of 150 CDs I have ripped so far, I have had to create different folders I wanted for 50 of the CDs, and manually transfer and remove the folder that the Vault put them in.This is a painstaking process.

    Maybe there's a different way to achieve what you want. One idea: why not tag the albums with a specific genre, and then access them via the genre list?

    Personally I would advocate a consistent file/folder structure, and not have a different structure just for "Christmas" albums. That denotation is inherently subjective, and if something stops being "Christmas" at some point (e.g. we have albums that we only listen to at Christmas, but aren't really Christmas music as such) it means changing music paths, which is disruptive.
