Automating metadata tool


Standard Member

My brother gave me a pile of songs in mp3 format, but unfortunately the metadata on them is rubbish - the title of all the songs is currently in the format:

001 - Marc Cohn - Walking In Memphis

I need a tool that will let me automatically delete the number and then move the name, e.g. Marc Cohn, into the artist metadata field.

Anyone know if such a tool to clean up metadata like this exists?

Many thanks in advance,

I tried Jtagger but it didn't seem to have the option to change the artist name using the filename.

MP3Tag did have that function however, so all updated successfully.

Thank you all for your suggestions.
