You rock, Paul! Thanks so much. I will test it out tonight.
No need to apologize, your software has already saved me hundreds of hours of work. The easy workaround is to use SK for batch items and then finalize in Jaikoz. It is a trivial bit that has a simple workaround. That all said, once implemented, I will be tickled pink
Part of my renaming mask involves the format and bitrate of the files that I add to the folder name: albumartist - album (year) [format]

I tried copying and pasting my mask from Jaikoz to SongKong but errors are thrown because I use 'format'. Is it possible to add it to the list of available tags and/or is there a process by which one might look at the file under current examination and retrieve the file extension to be used in the mask?

Thanks for checking out my thread. I am trying to create a folder mask that would have an output such as:

Album Artist - Album (Year) [Format] {Custom1}

the tricky part comes from Format. If it is lossless, I would like the file type returned (FLAC, ALAC, AIFF etc), else I would like the bitrate returned.

I created as a trial:

 function iflossless(value3){
      return value3 == "FLAC"  ? value3 :bitrate;

My problem comes from the format specifying 'FLAC 16 bits' for instance. What would I need to do to change my iflossless function in order to get the proper [Format] in my folder name?

I thought about checking for a bitrate above 320 kbps for instance and if it is, then print format, but I don't know what return value 3 should be looking for.

The second part of my question comes from the {custom1}

What I would like is to have really is

 {diskno + 'of' + disktotal + comments}

but, if disktotal <2, then I only want to have comments. I think I can manage this by creating a function but my problem is that I don't want to see:

{1of2} {comments}

but rather {1of2 comments}

so the final folder name for a multidisk set:

 Albumartist - album (Year) [Format] {1of comments} 
 U2 - Boy (1980) [FLAC] {1of2 Limited Japanese Only Release}

and if there was someway of doing this:

 U2 - Boy (1980) [FLAC] {Limited Japanese Only Release}/U2 - Boy (1980) [FLAC] {1of2 Limited Japanese Only Release}
 U2 - Boy (1980) [FLAC] {Limited Japanese Only Release}/U2 - Boy (1980) [FLAC] {2of2 Limited Japanese Only Release}

that would be even better.

Thanks again for looking.
I would like to echo the suggestions above. I just purchased a license and am very happy with the product when modifying FLAC files. However, I have begun a lengthy process of transcoding to AIFF and want to ensure the tags are correct. iTunes works but we all know it isn't great... AIFF support would be sublime.

Many thanks in advance.
