    batch edit metadata with wildcard or regex

    is there a way to batch rename metadata in files?

    well I already know the answer to that question, yes.

    selecting multiple files and then right clicking to edit the ID tag.

    HOWEVER what I am after is a way to use wildcard or regular expressions to rename metadata. So for instance, in the BWF description of wave files in a sound fx library, they will have different desriptors - one will have 'ASCEND, HIT, METALIC,' another will have 'GLASS BREAKING, SHATTER, ECHO' etc etc and I want to add a tag at the end to a bunch of files, for instance ', OUTDOORS' - so rename using '*, OUTDOORS' or something similar.

    Is this possible?
