Hi, I've searched through renaming and it's all rather complicated normally requiring user input etc. Could anyone point me in the right direction for doing the following:
I have audio files that are named with a _01 to _13 at the end of each name
This relates to the chromatic scale in music (they are sample) so
So - _01 should be _C
_02 should be _C#
_03 should be _D
Can anyone help me please?
There are two solutions that enable batch renaming of selected Finder files:
Batch Rename Files in the Finder, which you can also find in your Keyboard Maestro Macro Library
Do something like:
This assumes _01 etc do not appear anywhere else in the path of the file (including parent folders).
Make sure you have a full Mac backup, and a backup of the specific folder, before testing such a macro.
Hi @Skipstream, you might want to take a look at this discussion Deleting from a file name where I very recently posted a macro that is virtually the same as outlined in @peternlewis' steps above.
You would need to edit the search and replace regex strings in my macro as per Peter's instructions but that shouldn't be too hard for you to try.
