Featured artist names within brackets to be capitalized

EDIT: Moved from a 9 year old topic #1524. Please no necroposting here, read the rules.

This is all good stuff. But it gives me a massive headache. I tried to adapt it to my needs but to no avail.

I would like to only have artist names within brackets to be capitalized. But only featured artists or collaborations. You know the feat./with/in duet/duet with....

Barry Manilow - I believe in you and me (feat. whitney houston).flac

I listed a few examples to show that it might be a bit complex. The last 3 examples have no change in case since remixes and edits get no capitalization in names (e.g. davidson ospina) and they're here to show that the brackets can be anywhere after the "-" (where the song title starts) and there can be multiple brackets.

I assume I wont get this perfect because of all the different possibilities in naming schemes but since I have to go through a couple of 100'000 tracks I would appreciate getting as close as possible so the manual work will be kept to a minimum.

I guess from a logic POV it should be: look for contents in brackets after the first "-" then if certain key words are present (like "with", "feat.", "duet with" and so on) then capitalize all within those brackets, then small-cap a list of words within the same brackets (like "with", "feat.", "and"...).
That should do what I need but leave the other brackets alone (like the remix artists).

Any help appreciated!
