How can I make renaming PARTS of MP3 tags simple?
Posted on 2016-09-28
I thought this would be relatively easy, but I must be missing something.
Every week, I need to rename a different batch of MP3 files (which are basically commercials) as in this example:
Health Markets 1.1-Spot1
Holiday Inn 1.2-Spot2
Lasik Vision 2.1-Spot1
Doing this manually using MP3 Tag for 60 files a week is a bit much! (I had been using different, standard naming conventions which made it simple and fast, but needed to change for more precise tracking information.)
So I'm looking for either a process or program that will help me to do what I explain here in a faster, easier way. I've looked a bit at Tag And Rename, Magic MP3 Tagger and some others, but can't quite see anything that will get the job done (although looking at this stuff can make you brain dead!)
Maybe there's a simple file editing utility that can get this done without messing up the other metatags in each MP3 file. Ideally, at least in concept, the solution would be something like:
Rename these files:
to these names:
OK, experts, let me hear from you and thanks in advance for your help.
