Importing Music ted Folder

I've set up a locally hosted bot that I'd like to connect to a large (500 gig) folder of music I have on my disk. Google-fu tells me that the only way to do this is to "import" the music, letting the bot transcode it and clone it to another folder. Given the large size of my music collection this obviously isn't an option. My questions, then, are 1) is there a way to have the bot access the original files (which are all on disk) and 2) if not, why, given that it's just playing plain old PCM MP3 and FLAC files? Can't it just transcode on the fly? Is there an unofficial addon that I can get to do this? Otherwise I'll have to find another bot :/
