Sure. Building on the example below, when I view music by artist in music player I get this:

Sting & Mary J. Blige
Sting feat. Anoushka Shankar
Sting feat. Cheb Mami
Sting feat. Vicente Amigo

which is a result of the music apps looking at the ARTIST tag in the metadata file.
I would prefer all music by String be under "Sting", regardless of who else was involved in the song.

Since I have no ability to change the music software to look at ALBUMARTIST instead of ARTIST, it would be nice if SongKong would give an option to use the data from ALBUMARTIST for the ARTIST field too.

Hopefully this is a better example

After running SongKong, I see the following fields set:
comment[11]: ALBUMARTIST=Sting
comment[12]: ALBUMARTISTSORT=Sting
comment[14]: ARTIST=Sting feat. Anoushka Shankar
comment[15]: ARTISTSORT=Sting

I have no doubt that this is proper, but it seems a lot of apps use the ARTIST field to list the artists instead of ARTISTSORT.

So I get a bunch of multiple listings for each "feat." item. Is there a way I can override the default and replace ARTIST with the data from ARTISTSORT?

Ah, javascript. Very nice, allows for lots of customization. Thanks for the tip.
When renaming files, is there a way to replace all spaces with underscores?
