Adding a track to multiple playlists at once

Post by themgnt » Sun Jan 08, 2017 12:35 am

I'm sure this is something that's been asked before but I can't anything that fits my situation.

Let's say I get a new song I love. I will want to add it to multiple playlists. For example, a playlist of new tracks I've added, a playlist of good driving songs, a playlist dedicated to favorite songs of that band, etc. Same song, multiple playlists.

Right now I have to manually add this to each playlist, one at time. Is there not a way to select multiple playlists to send a track too? I'm assuming not but I thought I'd ask just the same.

Thanks in advance!

This does work if you have a well-organised library with AutoPlaylists. You add a song from the year 1995 of one of your favourite bands you really like? Give it an e.g. 4-star rating.
Now it will be added to:
- your AutoPlaylist that contains all 4-star or better songs
- your AutoPlaylist that contains all 4-star-songs from the Nineties
- your AutoPlaylist that contains all songs from this special band

If you add comments in the tabs like "great guitar", "hard rock", "soft song" or whatever you could even create AutoPlaylists that combine one of these with an e.g. minimum 3-star rating. Or combinations of all of them.

The world of AutoPlaylists offers a lot, but you need a really well kept library with good tags.

Ok. Thanks for the help!

My playlists are often mutating so using tags like that is probably more work than sending the same song to a few different playlists. :)
