I'm new here and hope that someone can help me with me question.
I am wanting to change the Filename for live concert recordings in FLAC to the standard way these are presented, which is:
JAMC 20220417 01. Song Name 1.flac
JAMC = initials for Jesus And Mary Chain (or whatever group) 20220417 = Year (date) without dashes 01. = Track Song Name 1 = Title
I am able to get all bits, except for the initials for the artist, in an Action. Here is what I have done:
Format value Field: _FILENAME Format string: %artist% $replace(%year%,-,) $num(%track%,2). %title%
Obviously I need to "just" extract the initial for %artist%. I have tried various things but haven't worked out how to do this.
It would be great to get some help with this, if possible, please.
