i'm afraid this did not work. How about this? is there a way to delete text after after certain character string of text of the original file name: 12 - Shake It Like A Pom Pom (ASV Remix) Dj Fafan 98 Bpm
for instance, i can separate some of the text but can't seem to get separated from this part of the text:
" Dj Fafan 98 Bpm" so Is there a way I can simply delete all the text after the (ASV Remix) part of the file name?
You see in my example that the string (filename) that you supplied leads to the desired result - you can test that in Convert>Tag-Tag.
If you have e.g. BPM instead Bpm or bpm instead Bpm in the filename then the pattern does not match - and the action does not do anything.
No sir Mr. Ohrenkino, I don't understand. I'm struggling to understand. I created and action based off your input and ran the action and nothing changed. Please help me and go a bit slower. what am i'm missing or doing wrong. I ran the action and nothing happened.
Ok.. I'm going to give up for now because I'm truly not understanding BUT I want to thank you again because you actually supplied what I needed in another thread. The solution that worked for me is to do a convert, filename, tag and then I run an action to delete everything after the parentheses you supplied to another user which gives me a cleaner Artist & Title tag. From there I can make minor corrections. Thanks once again... but I'll be back.
"Guess value" works just like "Convert>Filename-Tag" in that respect that it takes a string and then divides that string by the separators that you (the user) supplies as target pattern.
While the converter takes always the filename as source, "Guess value" takes any user supplied string.
In your case, the filename is a little tricky in respect to field separators as there is no unique separator in front of the number for the BPMs.
That i why the regular expression enters the stage as that can be used to detect the number and then insert the missing separator - I chose the == as I like that.
Just for a test: you could use Convert>Filename-Tag on
and try as mask:
%track% - %title%
which will fail as the separator between TRACK and the rest is not the hyphen but the full stop.
This is also true if you treat the filename as source with "Guess value".
So the problem occured not with the bpm part at the end but with the wrong separator at the front.
