[Help] Masstagger And Title Feild (Removing Text)

I have a bunch of voice clips I have saved from MSN Convos. They are all by a single person which makes this easier (I think). Here is what I want to do:

I have about 150 clips filenames in this format: "PersonsName - ClipContents"

What I want to do is use masstagger to remove the "PersonsName - " part from the title, so its just "ClipContents". I am using the masstagger "Guess From Filename" and using the "Title" field.

Here is a screen shot:

I have the artist field on the far left. It just says "Faye". Then I have the title field that has "Faye - ClipContents". The one that just says "I Love Canada" is how I want them all to be. I want to remove the "Faye - " part.

I hope this makes sense... can this be done easily without having to edit each and every clip?

What format are the file names in? Because if the file names are something like:

Faye - I Hate My Voice.mp3
Faye - I Like Normal Food.mp3

Then you can do this:

1) Load all the clips into a playlist
2) Ctrl+A to select all the clips
3) Right-Click the selection and choose "Properties" from the menu
4) Right-Click the "Track Title" and choose "Fill Values from File Names"
5) Enter "%artist% - %title%" into the field at the top
-) Preview the changes, click "Auto-Capitalization" if you like
6) Click [OK] to accept the tags you just previewed
7) Click [Apply] to save the tags to your files
8) Click [OK] to return to foobar

@ Yotsuya: They are .wav format. I am thinking of converting all to .mp3 because when I move the files to a different directory, the tagging disappears :S.

@ kjoonlee: That worked perfectly ! It did exactly what I wanted, and took all of 2 seconds lol. Thank you very much .
