I'm trying to create a playlist that surfaces records I'm not as familiar with, and these are the criteria I want:

Year > 2010
OR
Year <2000 (because I have way too much music that was published between 2000 and 2010)

AND
Not Beatles (because I have way too much Beatles) 🙂

A regular auto-playlist doesn't seem to allow ANDs and ORs, and while I can create two playlists I don't see how to use the playlist mixer to create an intersection set rather than a superset of those two playlists. I've searched this forum but wasn't able to find an answer.

Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!

You probably need to change "match any of the following rules" to "match all..."

Of course auto playlists support and ("All of the following criteria") and or ("Any of the following criteria") together. Click the [...] icon next to your criterion to set sub criteria.

Ah, sub-rules was exactly what I was looking for but I didn't know the musicbee term for it - thank you!
