Music Name Scrubber Documentation

Below you will find detailed documentation on the Music Name Scrubber tool and its configuration options. Within the tool itself, each option has help hover text that explains the purpose and in some cases it shows an example.

This tab contains general application options such as backing up the files before processing them, allowing the tool to process sub directories etc. All of the options are self explanatory.

All of the plugins contain at least 1 “Activation” check box. These turn the associated plugin on or off.

The Separator Character is the character that denotes the Song Artist and the Song Title.

This feature is used to expedite adding or removing exceptions to the plugins. This feature will add the new exception to all of the registered plugins that have an exception list. For example adding an exception of “D-Block” will add “D-Block” to both the White Space and Title Caser plugins. If you select an exception from the Master Exception List and remove it, the corresponding exception will also be removed from the registered plugins.

This plugin removes extra white space characters between each of the words, removes white space from the beginning and end of the file name and also single spaces around the “Separator Character”.

Exceptions

This plugin utilizes an exception list to override the default behaviour of adding single white space characters around the “Separator Character”. If I had an exception of “D-Block” and a song name of “ D-Block–Example” the output would become “D-Block - Example” instead of “D – Block – Example”.

This plugin will translate some text into different text based on what you have defined in the “Translations” section. For example, if I wanted all occurrences of “feat.” to be short formed to “ft” I would setup a translation “feat. = ft

This plugin removes all text after detected brackets, whether square or round. For example, if I have a song named “GWNP – Example (plugin) I will be removed”, the output would be “GWNP – Example”.

This plugin fixes the casing of all song names to be title cased. By default, the first letter of every word will be upper cased, and the remainder will be lower cased. For example, if I had a song like “I am – a song”, the output would be “I Am – A Song”.

Exceptions

This plugin utilizes an exception list to override the default behaviour of lower casing all text except the first character. If I had an exception of “GWNP” and a song name of “GWNP – example” the output would become “GWNP – Example” instead of “Gwnp – Example”.

This plugin will remove any character that is not on the “Valid Characters” list.

This plugin will remove any text within brackets as well as the brackets themselves.
