Hello all,

I recently posted on the English Amiga Board to see if someone could help me find a music track I have on cassette. Someone recommended I post here too just in case!

I can't remember where the music came from - only that I recorded it at a friends house in the late 80s.

I've been listening through hours of clips on YouTube of Amiga Demos from around the same time period when I think this was recorded but so far no joy - even though the type of samples used seems to be from the era. I thought maybe a cracktro but it doesn't seem the sort of piece you would have on that?

Any thoughts most appreciated!

That video only has like 2 seconds of sound before it gets quiet?
I'm sorry, it was pretty late so I didn't check the video. I'll reupload.

I was looking through old messages, found out that I shared this file, but it didn't have the original title and was shared as MP3, saw that I mention the fact that it was a MOD.
Another thing about this MOD is that it had something about "Jungle" in the name, it had around 4 or 5 channels, it was found here in modarchive, and I'm pretty sure it had no artist with an account asigned to it.

Anyways, the module in question can be heard in my YouTube upload: (Reuploaded so it doesn't cut off at 2 seconds)

The answer was right in front of me the whole time. I use foobar2000 with openMPT plugin a lot of the time for playing mods, and that program has a nice rename feature that allows you to rename media files based on metadata. This also works for mods. There's not much metadata there for advanced naming of course, but I only wanted the title, and that works fine.

You can easily see both filenames and titles, so in the case of weird titles it is easy to only select files with valid titles, and then rename those.

I prefer fileanmes to be clean, and use folders to group files by author, style etc.

Yeah, that is definitely the "more original" file.

Afaik, there is no magical rename tool that I've seen as yet unfortunately, especially something that uses the metadata from the mods themselves, because a sizeable chunk of them have no internal metadata at all or totally unknown.

I decided years ago to rename the mods, ie. author_modname.extension, here on MA they use something similar. I only chose it this way to make it easier for me to structure the mods, so I could keep an Excel list of everything as a database and store the mods on my system.

I use TotalCommander for most stuff, it does have a multi-rename tool function that can make renaming the file name easier and batch rename too, there are probably other utils that do the same thing out there.

I seem to remember a mod renamer program on Modland. There are some utilities in the pub/software/utilities/dos or windows folders. I think it renames to the internal title of the mod and also batch rename all files (that it supports), but it won't rename by author etc.

You could also try Saga' Mod Library from his website, doesn't rename files or anything but does generate a good database of your mod collection.

Thanks, alphvlle.mod had the last sample shortened so I removed that one.
