I think I've tried just about every mp3 renaming utility out there and it's always been a royal pain. Mp3Tag certainly stands out and I consider it the best tool available. But with that being said why doesn't it have defaults that handle the mp3 scene standard for filenames ? Give some performatted choices of what to turn that filename into ? all these tools behave like everyone is only ripping there only cd's which is a falacy. It's great that mp3tag is so customizable but it's overwelming for something that should be such a simple task. I literally can rename faster by hand at times !
So may I suggest a "Action" is created for scene releases ? and under the "Standard" one include a list of groups names for removal ? I could supply a list of 200-250 of those. I can't imagine anyone cares for them.
Am using $num(%track%,2) - %artist% - %title% with a a action to replace underscores to spaces but it often chops half the title
01 - Carl Cox - Partynight (Radio 538) 05-08-2.mp3
when I'd want something like
01 - Carl Cox - Live Partynight On (Radio 538) - 05-08-2005.mp3
I'll figure it out, the help file is very good, but again overwhelming I find.
