Have lots of songs in my library that are identified by track number, artist, name of song. Want to shorten it to only track number, and name of song, such as "01 Take it Easy". Any way to do that in a batch operation with Mp3tag without going in and redoing each song?
I think I have solved my problem if I am happy with no track number, just the track name
showing in the music player.
What I am talking about is when I load the song or a whole album into a player, it shows the
song as track number, artist, and the name of the song, when all I want showing is the track
number and the song. I figured Mp3tag could change that tag and scrub the artist's name off
the listing so it only shows the track number and name of the song. I can do it with
Mp3tag but in a way that gets rid of both the artist and the track number. Maybe that is what
I really want anyway. According to other threads I have read it is better to not have the
track no. listed by the player because its track number is already listed internally somehow, maybe
I should just go with that because I can do it batch-wise and with just one "action". Under the
Tag-Filename action I change it from %_title% to %title% and it fixes all the songs I have loaded
Thanks for responding.
Well, if I do that, they all get out of order track-wise and are listed alphabetically. All I need is
to highlight all the tracks and hit Tag-Filename action and install "%track%-%title%" in the
little action window, hit OK and it "do it gud".
Now don't tell me that everybody who read my thread didn't already know how to do this because
I know better. Oh well, I may be 75 years old but I can still read and experiment (and listen to
music that is has been well disciplined, by me... )
