I'm not sure MP3TAG is capable of doing what I would want to, and I don't find what I want to do on the forums. I'm kind of hoping someone already has a script I can modify or use as a starting point as my scripting skills aren't great.
I have A LOT of music that I would like to sort. The tags inside the MP3/FLAC's are fine but the filenames aren't. The music files are in folders that are sorted by catalog number. I would like to rename the files and tag the release year and bitrate in the folder names.
This is an example of what I would like the folders to look like:
▷ Example Recordings ▷ [CAT001] Artists - Album [FLAC-16bit] ▷ [CAT002] Artists - Album [FLAC-24bit] ▷ [CATLP001] Artists - Album [CBR-192] ▷ [CATLP002] Artists - Album [VBR-182] ▷ [CATCD001] Artists - Album [CBR-320]
I'd like the filenames just to be simple:
▷ Example Recordings ▷ [CAT001] Artists - Album [FLAC-16bit] ▷ 01 - Artist - Title.FLAC ▷ 02 - Artist - Title.FLAC
I know the catalog number isn't in the tags so it would be fine if they're left out, I can add them again manually. I already have the catalog number between brackets on all folders it would have to be added after the first brackets [*]. (If this is too complicated, I could just add them all manually later.)
I'm guessing it would be best to separate both filename changing and the folder-name changing in two separate scripts so I can rename music files within all subfolders before I run the folder renaming script. For the Variable Bitrate (VBR) rips both the version number or the average of all files within a folder would be ok. So [VBR-V0] or [VBR-245].
Any help or advice would be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
