Please forgive me if this is covered elsewhere. Rather than struggle with this, I’m hoping I can trouble one of the wise Picard scripting gurus for some help. If I’m right, this software will solve a major problem for my radio station, and possibly others.
I need a simple script to rename a massive public radio station music library, one category at a time, so without folders. All info needs to end up in the filename, separated by " - ".
The output names need to be in this format:
Artist - Title - Album - Label.mp3
Beatles - Taxman - Revolver - Capitol.mp3
The idea is to end up with something that my iMediaTouch automation system can re-import, with the database info necessary for SoundExchange reporting. It’s very finicky about reading metadata so I’m trying to feed it what it needs in the filenames.
Also, if there is any way to get Picard to favor the original artists’ album titles instead of all the various artist compilations, that would be preferred.
Thanks to anyone who even bothered reading this. I will send KSKO swag from mighty McGrath, Alaska.
