No, the single quote doesn't need an escape character. Actually, you are trying to modify the preset "Fix common words", not "Fix common part_of_words". This is because there is \b on the begin of the Find what string. So, if you want to use same preset for your needs, you should add |(in')\B on the end of the string, i.e. instead of:

Code: Select all

\b(?:([Ii]m)|([Ii]ll)|(dont)|(wont)|(aint)|(isnt)|(cant)|(in'))\b
it should be:

Code: Select all

\b(?:([Ii]m)|([Ii]ll)|(dont)|(wont)|(aint)|(isnt)|(cant))\b|(in')\B
However, I don't know why you need such thing. I think if the author of a song wanted in' instead of ing, you should respect that.

I'm with you on this. 'Correcting' a song title to something other than what the author intended no longer makes it that author's song imo.

BFound an issue with this plugin:

Today I tried the following operation:
1. Filter all files from DB, which contain '80s' in path, filename or genre
2. Select all filtered files
3. Open Regexp Find & Replace
4. Replace (^.*) with 80s;$1 which I expected to prepend '80s' to the genre field of all files

This seems to work for about 120 files, when a message dialog opens, telling me something about: "There is an issue with the sql query: Error executing SQL statement." I tried it several times, getting long long SQL error dialogs. Aborting the operation is also not possible. I need to kill MediaMonkey!

I think the issue might be caused by empty genre fields.

Regards

Hello

first of all thank you for this wonderful script. I use it very often. The presets are great.
I learned a little bit of regular expressions, but now I want to do the following:

I have a lot of files which are tagged like this:

Code: Select all

Artist: 32nd Avenue
Title: Time goes by (130 BPM)
now I want RegExp to search for the " (130 BPM)" in the title of a track. I already figured out this would do that:

Code: Select all

\s\([0-9]{2,3}\sBPM\)
Now I want RegExp to delete " (130 BPM)" from the title tag and put the BPM value ("130" in this case) in the BPM tag field.

Can someone help me with that, please?

Thanks a lot

Hello,

It would be very nice if this great script could execute some presets in a batch. Large library management would be much easier with this functionality.

Thanks,
Mickey

First off, awesome scripts!

I have many songs where the Artist and Album have the same information. In general, the Artist is correct and the Album name just has the artist duplicated. There are some instances where this is correct (ie self-titled albums) but in most it is not.

I'm trying to remove the Album tag info when this occurs. Tried modifying some of the presets to do something like this in VBScript mode without success:
IIf(oSongData.Album) = (oSongData.Artist),"", "$&")

Thoughts?

Many thanks - works perfectly.

Is there any way to do a Find using this expression or something similar? I'd like to narrow down the list I'm working with as trying to run this on 10K+ songs would get tedious quick. Basically the Find would bring up a list of only those songs that have Album and Artist strings matching and then I could pick out the ones that need to be changed easier.

Hmmm... another question after playing around a bit:

I have a bunch of files with a Path similar to this:
M:\Mp3\Incoming\_Billboard Top 100\Billboard Top 100 Hits of 1991\079 - Chris Isaak - Wicked Game.mp3

The Artist field for these files is empty and I would like to populate it with the artist name extracted from the path. I tried using something similar to the "Assign the Artist name from the part of the Title" script with no luck. I'd prefer a RegEx over VBScript if possible. Since the format is the same on all of them I know I can just extract the part between the dashes but can't seem to find the right RegEx to do that.

Use AutoTag from Filename with mask "<Track#> - <Artist> - <Title>" or,

Thanks Owyn - didn't know about the masking bit. 100 kinds of awesome.

Still curious as to whether or not there is any way to do a more advanced find for the matching album/artist thing.
