An enhanced version of MusicBee's default Genre hierarchy list. IMPORTANT: Only for MusicBee 3.4 beta, which is currently in testing phase and not officially released.

   MusicBee 3.4 Beta ONLY!

Readme

This is a genre hierarchy list that can be added to MusicBee as a replacement for the genre hierarchy that comes included with it.

It has the same basic concept and idea, which is:

It contains all genres, and all variations on their names as are present in the genre databases of MusicBrainz and Discogs.
That means that if you use MusicBee's auto-tag function, or other tagging software such as Picard or mp3tag, those genres will be matched and categorised.

There are two differences:

1.
MusicBee's default genre hierarchy list has a two-level hierarchy.
That makes it easy to navigate and see all music in a selected main category without the need to consider deeper navigation or possibly arbitrary-considered subdivisions.

This enhanced version has 2nd and 3rd level subdivisions for most main genres.

2.
For this enhanced version I will not keep the genres limited to what is on MusicBrainz and Discogs, but I will be adding new sensible and useful genres and possibly new categories.

IMPORTANT:
This tag hierarchy feature is only available for MusicBee 3.4, which is currently in beta state and not yet officially released.

howto:

  • extract the downloaded rar file.
  • put the [i]Enhanced genre hierarchy.txt[/i] file in the folder: [b]MusicBee> AppData> TagHierarchyTemplates[/b]
    [i](note: this folder will have been created by MusicBee only after you have enabled the Tag Hierarchy Explorer panel at least once)[/i]
  • (re)start MusicBee
  • click the header of the Tag Hierarchy Browser panel to select the Enhanced genre hierarchy.
