"Aaliyah, Ginuwine/Ginuwine" Removing Duplicate Artist Name?


#1

I've got a whole bunch of songs where the artist field is formatted like this.

Aaliyah, Ginuwine/Ginuwine

I can't figure out how to remove the /Ginuwine to turn it into this.

Aaliyah, Ginuwine

Can anyone help me?

Some curveballs..

Possible whitespace: 50 Cent, Nate Dogg/Nate Dogg


#2

Action Replace with regular expression
Search pattern:
(.)(/.)
(if this does not work try: (.)(/.)

Replace with
$1

Try on a single track first to see whether you get the right result.


#3

Action "Guess values"
Source format:
%artist%
Guessing pattern:
%artist%/%dummy%
