    Hello all!

    For some years now, I have been (obsessively) refining the tags of my iTunes songs. I mostly erase the usual "(featuring X)" - sometimes added to song names in apple music or the iTunes store - and place it in the Artist field (as in "artist feat. X"). Other examples include: refining genre names (R&B/Soul--> Soul, Hip Hop/Rap --> Hip-Hop), and erasing comments (bonus track, remaster, produced by, hidden track).

    Up until now, I have been using a special smart playlist which automatically groups all of the songs that the geek inside of me wants to refine. Attached are screenshots of the playlist's parameters.

    I wanted to ask you: is there a way for me to automate this time-consuming process? Perhaps I could use an app (such as automator, with which i have zero experience) that would do the hard work for me? What do you think?

    Thank you so much!! :):apple::)

    Best,
    Camille
