    I'm using this syntax below for foobar2000 converter
    [%album artist%] - [%album%]\[$ifgreater($max(%discnumber%,%totaldiscs%),1,[%discnumber%]_,)][$num(%tracknumber%,2)] [%title%]
    which results in saving output to, for ex.:
    some_path\Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks\mp3_track.mp3
    some_path\Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks- Fire Walk With Me\mp3_track.mp3
    The problem appears when there is a colon in the album name.
    I would like the output folder for album "Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me"
    to be "Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks - Fire Walk With Me".
    How can I achieve that?
