    ID Tag Update utility and [REPLACE] function in rule-based manipulation

    Hello,

    I am trying to replace a sub-string within the Artist tag with another sub-string while keeping the rest of the Artist tag intact. I have tried (based on previous threads) the following where

    Artist=Sir Simon Rattle; Dorothea Röschmann; Thomas Quasthoff; Berliner Philharmoniker; Rundfunkchor Berlin; Simon Halsey

    and using the rule

    IF Artist=[anyvalue]
    SET Artist=[REPLACE]Sir Simon Rattle,Simon Rattle,[tag]Artist[][]

    I end up with

    Artist=Simon Rattle

    and not

    Artist=Simon Rattle; Dorothea Röschmann; Thomas Quasthoff; Berliner Philharmoniker; Rundfunkchor Berlin; Simon Halsey

    Okay in this instance the sub-string is at the beginning of the tag and I am just removing the "Sir " but the sub-string could be anywhere within the tag e.g. I might want to replace "Rundfunkchor Berlin" with "Berlin Radio Choir"

    I also have many files to process so need to use Batch Converter.

    Help much appreciated.

    I do not think it will work because they are multi artists and separated out.

    You could try PerfectTUNES that would allow to replace all artists of a certain tag in one go.
