On my macOSX I'm using standard Music folder that contains following folders with music and iTunes folder.

|- Artists
|- Compilations
|- iTunes

I have imported Artists and Compilations into iTunes using "Add to Library". Now Music/iTunes/iTunes Media contains the same mp3 files as Artists and Compilations.

Is it possible import folder into iTunes without duplicating it?
