Artist/Title Bulk Tag Using RegEx


#1

Hello all,

I have a bunch of mp3s that don't have tags on them. The way the files are named are in the following format:

Artist - Title.mp3

What I'd like to do is write two regular expressions:

  1. To add the Artist tag by looking for all characters before " - " in the filename.
  2. To add the Title tag looking for all characters after " - " in the filename

Can this be done? If so how would you do this using the Mp3tag application? And can it be applied to multiple files at once?

Thanks,
Dan

It can be done :slight_smile: See this topic from the #howto:faq-frequently-asked-questions for details:

It'd be %artist% - %title% in your case.
