About 10 years ago I ripped my CDs to 224kbps MP3s. Now that hard drives are much cheaper, I've decided to re-rip them to FLAC.
I've modified my MP3 tags quite a bit over the years, and I'd like to get this info from my MP3s to my FLACs. My ratings are of utmost importance, since they drive what I listen to and what goes onto the player and in the car, etc. I could live without the rest of my changes, but I do not look forward to re-rating ~12,000 songs.
Is there an add-on which could do this? If a FLAC and an MP3 matched on Artist + Title + Album, then copy Rating from MP3 to FLAC.
I'm not so sure that these three fields will all perfectly match, so that may be an issue.
If not, I will start looking into programming it myself, which isn't that big of a deal, but why re-invent the wheel? I have looked through many of the addons here, but didn't get the impression that any could match those three fields between two different formats. Granted, I could have missed something - Advanced Search & Replace is pretty big, and my criteria could be buried in the list of features somewhere. But Search and REPLACE scares me a bit, because I don't want to stomp on any existing info.
Thanks in advance.
