    I am trying to write a script that would switch the title of a track and the artist name. Is there any way to do this? Any help is appreciated.

    I am doing this because a set of classical music CDs has the composer in the title and track in the artist on CDDB.

    There's one available from the website "dougs applescripts for iTunes". I'd get you a link but I'm on iPhone so it's be pretty inconvenient sorry. Just google it :)

    Yes I would imagine it would be relatively straight forward.

    The applescript would get the track name and artist name and store them as variables, the applescript would then assign each of the variables to back to track name and artist name in the reverse order, thus switching them.

    Edit: Also, try here: http://dougscripts.com/itunes/
