Simple switch in the same field

Hello :slight_smile:

I just want to do a simple things

On the title field, I have

Artist - Song

I want to simply do

Song - Artist

Thank for your help


Create an action of the type "Replace with regular expression" for TITLE
Search string: (.) - (.)
Replace string: $2 - $1

Leaves the question: why do you have such a mess in the title and mix title and artist instead of having them in their appropriate fields? No, this was rhetoric.


It work fine :slight_smile:

The reason is my artist field has "various artist".

I did billboard compilation and my jukebox software use the artist field to sort first.

Title Artist
01 - Call Me - Blondie Various artist
02 - Another Brick In The Wall Pt 2 - Pink Floyd Various artist


Have you ever tried to fill the field ALBUMARTIST with "Various Artists"? Perhaps this overcomes the data mix.

Example: Change 'The Beatles' to 'Beatles, The'. How to do thisw?
