I do not keep my iTunes library on my computer. I keep it on an external HD. The software seems to not let me locate that library. Can you help?

    Hey Tony,

    which operating system are you using?

    If macOS 10.15, you are using not iTunes anymore, right?
    Then, in beaTunes simply create a library and the rest should be taken care of automatically.



    PS: For more info about different kinds of music libraries, please see — the article is a little old and does not cover yet, but explain the gist of things,
