[EN] Netlabels: How-to add the release code to album title tag in batch mode using iTunes (Mac) and some Doug’s Applescripts for iTunes

What you need:
– a netlabel catalogue converted into an iTunes-compliant format (MP3, AAC, MP4..);
iTunes for Mac;
– the following Doug’s Applescripts for iTunes installed: “Sundry Info to Comment“, “Search/Replace Tag Text” and “Put This Before That“.

The goal:
This is the batch method I use to add the release code before the title name in the tags of my netlabel music. My goal is to replace every

Album Title

with

[RELxxx] Album Title

so I can sort/recognize conveniently all my netlabel music inside my big music library.

The tutorial:
Before starting, please organize the gerachy of folders of your netlabel following the scheme: netlabel name or url / release_code.

Example:
thinner.cc/THN001
thinner.cc/THN002
thinner.cc/THN003
….

Then add the whole netlabel folder (ex. thinner.cc) inside iTunes and follow these simple 6 steps 🙂

Before running the script, select all the songs you wanna work on (CMD+A to select all the files).
