Description:
I have a bunch of files which filenames are in this format:
n. artist name - song name.mp3
I want everything before the hyphen (except the hyphen) is put into the "artist" part of the ID3 tag, if it's possible?
Input Sample:
n. artist name - song name.mp3
Output Sample:
update mp3 file and put "artist name" into ID3 tag.
Answer:
Hint: You need to Download and install "Replace Pioneer" on windows platform to finish following steps.
1. open "Tools->Batch Runner" menu
2. drag multiple mp3 files from windows file browser into "Batch Runner" window
3. click "Fast Replace" to open "Fast Replace" dialogue
* click "Add" to add new rules:
* set "Search" to: 

* set "Replace" to:

* make sure following options are checked:
"Reg exp", "Cross line", "Binary"
4. click "Start", and click "Yes", all ID3 will be updated.

Note: All mp3 files should already have ID3 tag in the content. It doesn't work if ID3 is missing in MP3 file.
