First of all, let me introduce myself. i'm cut from Indonesia. so sorry if my english is not too good
i've been used mp3tag 3 years until now. and its very useful. i think its the best software to organize my song collections.
Until yesterday, since i read many threads from this forum. i just realized that so many things that mp3tag could do more for me to make my life easier. but i just don't know yet how to do all of that. i'm trying to understand scripting from reading this forum and help contents. but maybe i'm not to good in this thing.
ok skip the prolog. ive been wondering is it posibble to do few things.
- i have a custom action that make my artist name to be albumartist automatically.
formatvalue >> albumartist
format string >> %artist%
but when i add it to iTunes i have to delete albumartist just to songs in compilation album. so when it creates folder its more organized.
so ive been trying to automatically delete albumartist just for the compilation album (which is compilation:1) without delete the other albumartist. with this action, but doesnt work:
action type: format value
field : %albumartist%
format string : $if(%compilation%,$replace(%albumartist%,(.),),($replace(%albumartist%,(.),%artist%)))
actually i dont really know what is (.*) mean, but i'm just trying from what i feel right
- The second is is it possible to format the grouping field automatically to something like BR if my bitrate's song is under 128 Kbps.
I want to make it like this.
Name : Hackensack.mp3
bitrate : 96Kbps
Group : BR
so mp3tag will auto recognize my files and just give the group BR for the under standard bitrate songs.
I'm sorry if my english is too abstract.
Note : i dont know if its true or not. but i think SUBTITLE in mp3tag is same with Description in iTunes.
