Not as good as I expected based on the hype.

Jaikoz has been a very useful tool for me for many years. Paul's friendly and quick responses on anything related to Jaikoz -from licenses, bugs to requests- have been wonderful.

Very robust, powerful software and incredibly versatile. My only less than great experience is with the user interface.

Very good but did get some of the artwork wrong, - needs improving.
This would be top notch software if it included an accuracy checker.
I use dbPoweramp for my cd rips and then they have a program called 'Perfect tunes' which checks the accuracy of your music files using the 'Accurate rip' database.

Hi there,

I’ve used jaikoz to clean up my song collection. It did the bulk of them well, but I am running into oddball exceptions where it completely changes the metadata to an unrelated song by an unrelated artist. I realize this may be the underlying music databases, but from where I sit the result is the same.

There is one use case I am surprised hasn’t come up before, and would be popular and unique if you added it. I like to listen to music by decades, and create playlists based on ranges of years, like’80s, ‘90s, etc. However, there’s no way to tie a song to the original release and its release date. To me - and I think a lot of people - a recording from the ‘70s that was rereleased in a 2005 compilation is actaully a ‘70s song. I have tried all the options using the original release date and so on. I am laboriously manually retagging the year for this piurpose. It will take weeks of work. It would be a great feature to find the first recording of a given song by a given artist and assign that date, optionally. I think a lot of people would like to listen to music by timeframe, and no other product does this yet.

Hi Michael, Jaikoz uses existing metadata of the song, metadata of other songs in the same grouping/album and acoustic analysis to find a match. Occasionally two completely different songs can generate the same fingerprint but this is usually not a problem due to the other checks, but I suspect you are trying to match a single song with no existing metadata in this case, if you can email me the value of acoustid field I can check this for you. Jaikoz does already store the original release date for songs in the originalreleasedate field but you can make Jaikoz use this for the year field instead by using the Preferences:MusicBrainz:Format:Put Original Year Into Year option. If you have already tried this and it didnt seem to work it maybe because you had already autocorrected your songs and so they were ignored if you reran AutoCorrect Metadata from MusicBrainz, instead try running Update Metadata from MusicBrainz, or it may just have failed for a particular album Jaikoz is unlikely to find original release date for 100% of your releases.

I purchased Jaikoz because you can do the modifications by yourself and you have the complete control on them. Mainly, my need is to replace the missing pictures of the album by the ones I have selected and Jaikoz is doing the job perfectly as I want but sometimes after having saved the modifications, all metadata of the album are completely erased including the names of the tracks. So I am not fully satisfy.

The program is fast and easy to use. It identified all my songs like magic and downloaded album artwork. Perfect. It works perfect even for individual songs not connected to albums. Very nice that the program can be used on Linux and ran from the command line.

Hello,
meine Erfahrung mit SongKong ist etwas zwiespältig. Technisch finde ich das Einrichten auf die persönlichen Bedürfnisse sehr schwierig und verwirrend.
Auf der anderen Seite hat Paul stets versucht mir zu helfen.
Das Einrichten der persönlichen Bedürfnisse muss einfacher gehen . Ich bin zwar kein Computer Freak aber auch nicht überfahren mit Computern aber es hat mich sehr viel Geduld und Nerven gekostet.
Liebe Grüße aus Germany

Hi Stefan, Thanks for your review, as I recall the main issue was confusion over the Songkong for Melco and SongKong versions, we are addressing this issue.

I have used it for years. From time to time I have downloaded similar tools out of curiosity, just to see if there was something new and better out there. Well, - I always end up with the "wizard" of Jaikoz as my only mp3 tagger.

Makes my library very organized very easily. Been using it for years and have yet to find anything even close. This program does small batch info and matching like nothing out there.

Just needs a checklist undo, and some tweaking as far as being able to choose if existing info or musicbrainz match is priority in checklist.

But if you have a large collection you basically have to have this program. Unless you're some Philistine who does it manually
