Thread: Batch converter to a new folder

  1. #1

    Batch converter to a new folder

    First off - I really like this program. Thanks you guys.

    Second, can I batch convert my entire iTunes library into a new folder, rather than converting 'in place' and re-syncing with my iPod?

    I did search around and couldn't find the answer.

    Thanks !

    You can use dynamic naming and set a fixed root folder.

    If you use [origpath]\[origfilename]

    It will use the original path and file name (stored within the new root folder)

    To trim off parts of the original path you can

    [trimfirstfolder][origpath][]\[origfilename]

    To trim the first folder, or

    [trimfirstfolder][trimfirstfolder][origpath][][]\[origfilename]

    To remove the first 2 folders

    Re: Batch converter to a new folder

    On the same theme, I have a large collection in Flac on one drive. I want to make an identical structure on another available drive letter in MP3 with the fodlers being created as the conversion takes place. I have scratched my head several times over the years and gave up. Just to clarify, a snapshot of the structure I have is

    m:\albums\m\mike smith - unheard album (and flac files stored here)
    m: \albums\m\michael jackson\thriller (where more than 4 albums for one artist I put in a separate sub folder)

    and I want to create the identical structure on another drive, but with the converted mp3 files.

    please advise, great ones!

    Set the Folder to the new drive, and dynamic to:

    [origpath]\[origfilename]
