Rename - Add track number to audio files

Post by savwelind » 27 Mar 2019 02:38

Hi,
I want to add the track number to audio files I have. I worked out how to list them in track order number.
I tried different renaming options, however I couldn't work it out, also did a search on the forum and didn't find anything that applied.
Avoiding doing it manually.
Thanks

Well if you are already listing them in track order you can just use a number variable like this <#01> - * as shown when you press the blue (i) in the bottom left of the following dialog:

File | Rename Special | Batch Rename...

the benefit being you can adjust the number padding, but if you want to read it from the file (and the file contains the value) then you can use this instead <prop #tag.track> - * in the same Batch Rename dialog again, but you should also check out this menu and its "ID3 Tag to Filename" items:

File | Rename Special | Mp3 Special

it may do what you want easier, make sure you have the files selected you want to edit before trying the menu items.
