Re-formatting the ARTIST field based on info from ALBUM


#1

I love MP3Tag, i've been using it for years, but have hit the wall while making some big changes to my music collection.

I want to replace the ARTIST field with info after the '-' gleaned from the ALBUM field.

All the ALBUMS are titled as follows:

Fabric 02 - Terry Francis
Fabric 03 - Jon Marsh

What would be the best way to do this?

thanks in advance


Extract pattern from filename to tag field (subtitle)

You can use a 'Guess Values' action, defined as follows:

Action type: Guess values
Source format: %album%
Guessing pattern: %dummy% - %artist%
