I have some quirky and OCD things I like to do with my music tagging and I was hoping to make some humble requests.

To summarize, I'd like:

  • " (single)" w/o quotes and uncapitalized, appended to the end of the Album tag for Singles*
  • " EP" w/o quotes or punctuation and capitalized, appended to the end of the Album tag for EP's*
  • every instance of the word remix to be uncapitalized, even better if it's just the ones inside parenthesis'
  • " (feat. featuredartist)" w/o quotes to replace every instance of Featured
  • " live" w/o quotes appended to the Title tag of all songs that are live performances (this may require a separate tag for "live performance?" and an accompanying "correct script"


    *I very much appreciate the options in the preferences to accomplish this but would like a bit more control. I have no better explanation than my previously mentioned OCD

    Its possible that at least some of this is already possible with the current version, and if so I apologize for asking, but if you could provide some help it accomplishing it I would be very grateful

    I'm not really sure how to encode such specific requests, of course you can use Find and Replace so perhaps one way to achieve this kind of thing would be to let you save Find/Replaces tasks and add them to Autocorrect.

  • You can do all this in J. river Media Center with their Expression language or possibly their Find and Replace. I would suggest you rethink appended standard metadata fields with custom data.

    Albums with (24-96 rip) or (Live) are technically not correct, and while useful, can be trouble down the road. You should investigate creating custom fields or using existing fields like comments or Keywords for such things imo.

    cheers!
