String for filenames 2 tag

Hi guys,

I've got a big collection of music that isn't tagged, just has correct filenames.

They either look like this
Artist - Title (YYYY)
Artist - Title (Remix) (YYYY)

So for the first kind of files my string for tagging would be:
%artist% - %title% (%year%)

For the 2nd ones I don't know how to do it properly. Anyone knows this?

Kind regards

Yes, this is a little tricky and will probably not work in 1 go.
I think the easiest way would be
%artist% - %title%) (%year%)
to import the data - you will lose the ) behind the "Remix".
So the second step would be:
Convert>Tag-Tag for TITLE
Format string: %title%)

Or you use an action of the type "Guess value"
Source String: $regexp(%_filename%,(.*) - (.*) \((.*)\),$1==$2==$3)
Target pattern: %artist%==%title%==%year%

Wo, thanks a lot, really appreciate your help! :slight_smile:
