File rename utilities

When you buy audio files you may not like the way they are named (most of the time). Here are links to download free utilities to rename them in batch, we use all three depending on the task at hand. This list is not exhaustive, but we use and like these:
Batch File Rename: the most polished, complete but it takes a bit of thinking on how to use.

Bulk Rename Utility: the screen might look a bit busy, but all is there in front of you and it works great; looks are often deceiving.

File Rename: Only uses RegExp (regular expressions), Spartan but so effective.
