Hello there. I started to use Picard for 3 days, I totally admire it and musicbrainz project, even contributed some edits right away. But I’ll cut to the point since I have some little frustration.
I’m a coding brainlet, for any type of it. I made a simple script which was enough for me, but some tracks with slash or other OS cruical characters ended up with underscore. I looked up documentation but couldn’t figure anything. Need help.
The second concern is that some tracks show featuring or collaboral artist instead of the main artist in both filename and idtag. I want to make this as the featuring artist or & artist show at the end of filename within paranthesis, e.g
Röyksopp - Album - Number - Ice Machine (ft. Susanne Sundfor)
Röyksopp feat. (or &) Susanne - Ice machine
This makes it both complicated for me for file/folder hierarchy and player apps.
As you will see in the attached images. Hope I could make it clear. I want to get rid of _underscore and add any secondary artist to the end of filename, and only main artist to be considered in tagging.
Thank you. I’m just lost, hope you understand me. oh also if there’s anything special about classical tagging, as I felt, I’d like to have same filename type.
(Carl Orff - Carmina Burana - In Taberna Quando Sumus (London or Arranjeur etc.)
My current script is as this;
%artist% - %album% - %tracknumber% - %title% $if($and($eq(%compilation%,1), $eq(%albumartist%,Various Artists)), $unset(albumartist) $unset(albumartistsort))
