While WinAmp already does a great job of editing these, I would like to see a better metadata/tag manipulation tool. Here are a few ideas for the tool:
- Global Search & Replace. This would allow the entire DB to be searched for say 'Kesha' and replace it with 'Ke$ha', not just the Artist field, but all fields in case you have a title like 'Metalica - Fade to Black Feat. Kesha'
- Artist Normalization. This would allow you to search for Artists and remove anything after the artist name OR search for key words like 'Feat., ft, with, etc.' from all fields and move them around. Since the entries are sorted on the MP3 player by artist, my collection is full of goofy entries like this, multiple artists entries with one song under that entry:
50 Cent Feat. Barbara Streisand - We Had it all
50 Cent with Neil Diamond - Back That ass up
This would be changed to this, One artist entry with multiple songs under that artist.
50 Cent - We Had it all Feat. Barbara Streisand
50 Cent - Back That ass up with Neil Diamond
You get the idea...
