Naming Files (Titles)

Question

Using Roxio Sound Editor 2010:

I have had it with all this fancy crap. Some of my input MP3s have artist info etc. and some don't. No matter what I do, some of my input MP3s(such as ==> ZZTop - Gimme All Your Lovin) are output with the artist name lopped off.

Is there a place where I can tell this software to transfer the title exactly as it was when inputed?

 

Tens hours of trying to no avail. Thanks

Umm... can't tell what you're doing. Apparently you're starting with .MP3 files with tag info? and you're putting them into Sound Editor and doing what? What format are you outputting the files to?

 

I understand you're frustrated with what you're trying to do, but a few more details will help us help you.

Sound editor bringing in 10 mp3s using 'Add Audio Files' (names such ZZ - Top Gimme all you loving etc.). I add 'Base' to each MP3 and then click 'Export tracks/clips'. When I check the 'Use Clips from Project' half of the MP3s names now show up with the song name but without the artist. A lot of these mp3s dont have info in the artist/album/year area, so I just want a straight-in/straight-out naming convention.

When you hit Export tracks/clips a box comes up.In it you can set the Output settings.Next to that drop down is a button that says Edit.

Hit it and the next box pops up go to Filename/Folder structure.

There you can set the naming convention you want to use.

Tried that. Every one I chose in the Filename/folder treis to adjusts the name of my file. I can't find a choice in there that will just leave my file name alone.

Is it the actual file name that's being changed, or the "tag" information? And depending on what utility you're using to look at your files, it's either showing the file name, or the tag information. My question then is this, (and I'm not disagreeing that you should be able to get it to output your file with no changes) is it the Tag information that is being changed, or the File Name?

The mp3 file name not counting tag info is... 'ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'. When it is output as a clip it will drop the 'ZZ Top -' and only output the name 'Gimme All Your Lovin' (dropping the groups name), If I output 100 mp3 clips, 50% will have the group name 'ZZ Top - ' removed, and 50 will come output correctly.

It is the actual file name, such as 'ZZtop-Gimme all your loving' will output as 'Gimme all you loving', (it truncates the first part of the file name which is 'ZZtop-'. I don't care a flip about artist. album etc. and all that superficial garbage, I just want it to output the same filename that was read in. It truncates about 50% of the time.

I think I can duplicate what you are seeing

pic1 show the orginal filenames.

pic2 shows the filenames in Sound Editor in the Export/Tracks window.

It seems parts of the filename is dropped as you state. I will investigate why it does this

 

Is this what you mean?
