Clearing Artists and Title infos...


#1

I have a lot of MP3's that their file name are all correct (Artists - Title).

But a lot of them have their artists and title part filled with both artist and title...

So what I would like to do is like, from the file name, get the artist name and put it in the artist info
and get the title name from the file name, and put it in the title info.

How would I do that with the Actions? Right now I am using two replaces:
REPLACE "ARTIST":""->"Ataris"
REPLACE "TITLE":"Ataris - "->""

So I am removing the name of the artist from title and unknowns putting ataris, but I would have to do this hand by hand... so how would I automate that? :smiley:

Action type: Guess values
Source format: %_filename%
Guessing pattern: %artist% - %title%

Would you explain what each thing would do, so that next time I need to do something, I could do it myself ;D

Thanks! =*

By the way, how would I include the Album, even though I don't have any information on what the Album is?

I have a lot of songs with or just empty, and filling those by hand would not be fun.. :stuck_out_tongue:

Guess values is like Convert > filename - tag, but you can define the source format.
So with the source format you generate and temporary string and you parse it with the guessing pattern where you put the different parts to tag fields.
