UPDATED: Remove n Characters From Front or Back v6.5

For macOS 10.15 or later. This script lets you delete a specified number of characters from either the beginning or the ending of the Title, Album, Album Artist, Artist/Director, Category, Comments, Composer, Episode ID, Grouping, Show (or their "Sort" siblings), Movement or Work tag of each selected track. For example, delete the initial digits and the space from "01 First Track", "02 Second Track", and so on.

This app is free to try full-featured in Demo Mode, with the exception that only up to five tracks can be processes per launch. You can purchase a code for $1.99 which will remove this restriction. Launch the app and click "Register..." in the its File menu to make an in-app purchase.
