Is there any current plugin that transfers data to/from the clipboard?
… load a set of tracks, select the tags, copy them to clipboard, select some different tracks, paste the tags back to them.
To add data across multi-disc sets, or building sets from various files, and wanting them to all have the same tag options.
The only way to “transfer” tags at the moment, that I can figure a workflow for, is to keep a “dummy” track, or take one from another set, and go through the steps to apply such tag to the ones it says "Missing from xxx Others)
Then remember to take that dummy one out, toss it back to unclustered, select it only and set it to “use original values”
You have Disc 01 of a set, you’re going to make a Disc 02. You’ve got the various tags all setup the way you want them for Disc 01. Since many of them outside of the title and artist details are likely to be the same across many tracks, of just with slight differences… Would be nice to just drop a set of saved tags on them.
I’m doing it with macro triggers and tagger scripts at the moment, but it means that anything I want to change I have to go edit the script or create a new one.
Of course, clipboard exchanging is not as flexible as stashing them in scripts, but for quicker access it would be a bonus when you might not want to have a script saved for it. Or just to not have to edit a scratch one over and over again.
I’ve gone into this before, and have not been able to come to a conclusion. Perhaps there’s similar functionality in one of the Swiss Army Plugins that Do Amazing Stuff that I can use as a basis for code?
