Does anybody happen to have a script that you can run on your present files that can replace the names of instruments? (and leave the performer related to it intact)
So that it is able to change names such as “membranophone”, or “drums (drumset)” to just plain “drums”, and “guitar family” to “guitars”?
(using the ‘Standardize Performers’ plugin, in case that’s important)
I have been playing around with this a bit myself, but I run into two problems.
seems to work, but it won’t remove the existing ‘membranophone’ tags from my files.
Is there a scripting command to remove it?
(without resorting to checking ‘clear existing tags’ in Picard)
When I try to use an identical script for “drums (drumset)”, Picard throws an error at trying to enter it.
Surely that’s because of the parenthesis around ‘drumset’.
How to circumvent that?
