    How do I batch edit track, disc and year tags

    After ripping (using dbpoweramp Ref) the bulk of these 20,000 songs a year ago, I am seeing problems with my tags. I would like to make the following changes (see examples below):

    Track 1/12 to 01
    Track 1 to 01
    Disc 1/1 to 1
    Year 2006/01/01 to 2006
    Album Artist Kings of Leon; Kings of Leon to Kings of Leon

    I don't see how do do a "batch" edit in dbpoweramp. If dbpoweramp can't do it, do you know of any tag editors that can? Tag&Rename should be able to do the track change but unfortunately it reads the tag as "1" and not "1/12" as 'Edit ID-Tag' sees it.

    How this happened I don't know. I had checked:
    Track number without Track Count
    Pad Track number to two digits
    Disc Number without Disc Count
    Force No Date on Year

    The 'Album Artist" is a real mystery. Sometimes on 1 CD some songs have the double name and some have only a single name; sometimes all of the songs have a double 'album artist' entry; and most have the correct single "album Artist' entry.
    Thanks for any help. I have spent a full day and only got through 200 out of 2000 cds. If I can't automate this task, I am in trouble.
