Please help with cycling numbers...I think?

Postby pipelineaudio » Thu Sep 14, 2017 7:59 am

Total noob here. I use these file renaming tools when creating drum sample libraries. I know there is a faster way to do things than the way I normally do, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out.

I want to add a counter that goes from 1 to 8 and a second counter that also goes from 1 to 8, but the second one is dependant on the first one. When the first number gets to 8, the second number should increment by 1 and the first number goes back to 1 and starts over

For instance:
V1 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V2 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V3 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V4 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V5 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V6 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V7 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V8 RR1 Kick Inside.wav
V1 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V2 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V3 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V4 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V5 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V6 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V7 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V8 RR2 Kick Inside.wav
V1 RR3 Kick Inside.wav

And so on...I would also be happy to import the V1 and RR1 whatever from a CSV or other text file, but I cant figure how to do that in BRU without it completely overwriting the old name

Can anyone suggest any cures to my woes? Thanks in advance!
