Lost with ALBUM ARTIST sript

To all Tagging Buddies...

I'm a scripting disaster and need help which, for many of you should be easy (i hope)

I whish to copy my ARTIST filed to the ALBUM ARTIST field in the following manner;

ARTIST field = A1 + A2 + A3 + A4 + A5

ALBUM ARTIST field I am looking for = A1 + A2 + A3 + A4 + A5; A1; A2; A3; A4; A5

I can manage to copy ARTIST field to ALBUM ARTIST, i can also manage to replace the '+' to and ';'
But not as described above.

It's driving me bonkers and i really need help with this,

Be gentle with me, scripts are abracadabra to me, would realy need a step guide as simple as possible.

Many thanks in advance...

You could try the Convert TAG -> TAG or press ALT + 5


%ARTIST%;$replace(%ARTIST%, + ,; )

Short explanation:
Fill the content from %ARTIST% into ALBUMARTIST
then add a semicolon
then replace every space + space in the content of %ARTIST% with
semicolon space

If you want to fill a custom field called ALBUM ARTIST (with a space between Album and Artist) then replace this field as target accordingly.

Thank you soo much for the fast response, I'm gonna give it a try.

Hopefully one day i will understand scripting, until then am greatful for this forum and ofcourse the members :smile:


I added a single space to your example %ARTIST%; $replace(%ARTIST%, + ,; ) and now it works beautiful.

You really made my day, super excited now, I'm babbling...

Thank you :vulcan_salute:
