I am a new user of MP3Tag. Very nice. Google search with "mp3tag" as a key word helped a lot in finding out how to get started. Eventually found the FAQ and HELP which helped even more.
One data type problem I has was cleaning up after MusicMatch Juke Box ripping of a compilation disk.
The problem is that MMJB tags compilation tracks as follows:
Featured Artist=artist / ...
eg: "Bill Anderson / Jan Howard"
Comment="MusicMatch_TrackArtist: "artist / ...
eg: "MusicMatch_TrackArtist: Bill Anderson / Jan Howard"
The Featured Artist tag is not supported by MP3Tag but Comment is.
The solution I eventually worked out was to create a new 3 step action.
- Format Value:
Format string: %comment%
Note: Trailing space on Original string.
Replace with: &
Select All files in directory (Ctrl-A). Apply Action. Visually inspect results and if it look good then Convert tag -> filename to finish cleanup (I use %artist% - %title%).
Not fancy but I was still figuring out how to use RegExp and Scripting Functions with MP3Tag when I implemented the fix.
Thanks for the handy tool. Made a massive cleanup job much easier.
