Every music archive looks different. If you are anything like us, you don’t have time to organize your music perfectly. Not all tags are correct and sometimes information is missing, or in the wrong fields.

So how does Beam identify what is a cortina?

You decide what is a cortina! Beam has a rule to specify what is considered being a cortina, or not a cortina. For my archive for example, my cortinas either have the artist — Cortina, or if title contain the word ‘cortina’.

Seems simple enough, but what if I play music from my normal music archive?

No worries, I do this too. Just specify what “is not” a cortina.

You can add multiple cortina rules and they will all be applied when you DJ.

Beam me up scotty!
