I am trying to batch edit a very large classical collection to match what Roon specifies it needs for folder/file structure in order to identify and display classical box sets properly. I was wondering if this can be automated using SongKong (perhaps by SongKong identifying a box set UPC or other code??). The metadata does not currently match the required directory structure, and this isn't necessary as long as the file/folder structure can be edited according to Roon's specs.

Following are the Roon requirments for classical box sets:

Directories
We look for a couple different possible folder structures when it comes to the individual discs.

So this scheme will work:

Music/
Miles Davis - The Complete Columbia Album Collection/
01-01 Track.flac
01-02 Track.flac
...
02-01 Track.flac
02-02 Track.flac
...
Pink Floyd: Discovery/
01-01 Track.flac
01-02 Track.flac
...
02-01 Track.flac
02-02 Track.flac
...
And this will work just as well:
Music/
Miles Davis - The Complete Columbia Album Collection/
CD1/
01 Track.flac
02 Track.flac
...
CD2/
01 Track.flac
02 Track.flac
...
...
Pink Floyd: Discovery/
CD1/
01 Track.flac
02 Track.flac
...
CD2/
01 Track.flac
02 Track.flac
...

Hi, yes so you can enable Rename Filename from Metadata on the Basic tab and select a suitable mask on the Filenaming tab such as AlbumArtistorArtist/Album/DiscIfMultiDisc/Disc - Track - Title.

However worth noting SongKong is only going to be able to rename correctly if the metadata is correct, either because SongKong and identified and fixed it, or if already correct.
