Most Common Artist to Album Artist

 

You have an album, possibly a compilation, which has more than one Artist field value. The goal is to populate the Album Artist or Artist fields with the value of the Artist field which appears the most. This action will not overwrite existing non empty fields. The action processes results on an album basis if more than one album is selected.

The next action is the main workhorse action which can set either the Album Artist or Artist field. Note that it is hidden in menus.
