well since you keep asking:

excellent and powerful program as is often the case with apps with a really ugly interface. stellar support initially but then a major issue (inability to bulk update tags in itunes) floored ‘em and it all went quiet. so i wrote a looping macro to process 27000 mp3s and all was well. overall did the job with a little help.

Hi Alan. Thanks for the review, the SongKong interface is really quite minimal so Im suprised you find it so ugly but if you have suggestions on how we can improve it that would be very useful. To clarify the the bulk update issue was not a SongKong issue. Bulk update was switched off within SongKong and you were going to bulk Get Info from within iTunes but for some reason your iTunes would not work properly if done in one go, this is not usually a problem in iTunes.

I have been using Song Kong with iTunes, and I honestly don't believe that anything can fix the mess that Apple has made. In the past I used Song Kong in Windows with another media organizer and it worked exceptionally well. I hate to give only three stars, but they do promise to work with iTunes. At that impossible task, they are only average.

Hi Michael, Im sure we can help with a bit more information, please send your support files. But in general if your songs are all mislabelled and not grouped by album I would recommend first running Fix Songs, and let iTunes reorganize based on new album metadata. Then manually move files associated with wrong album and then run Fix Songs again for a further tidy up, that shod go a long way to getting you there.

Does a good job finding the right artist and title when searched individually, but when you select a list of 10 or more it picks up all songs as if they were from a single album and they do not have the correct name and artist. Sometimes it will not find an artist or title but when searched individually it will pick up some strange foreign name and title.

Hi Dale, if you select a group of songs from the same folder in the first instance Jaikoz will try to match to one album, it if cannot it will match Song Only. It is rare for songs to match wrong title but if yo have had this please send your support files so we can resolve this.

I have been unable to have this program run continuously and consecutively over a few days to update my 1.6 TB music collection. It covers a small fraction each day and then will stop 2/3 of the way through after 3 days without either finishing or fixing what it covered to date. Very frustrating.

Hi Jeffrey, please run Send Support Files so we can help. Also note that even if does not complete everything matched so far will be saved, so on subsequent run it should skip over the already matched files (unless you have changed the settings).

Hi Dave, I am sure the problem is simply that you have not unchecked the Preview Only option on the Basic tab, this doesn't happen automatically when you install full license since it is still very useful to run Preview.

Although initially worried that my iTunes database could be damaged, I was pleased to see that SongKong allowed me to preview various scanning operations, showing me the results and all without making the associated changes to the database. Once I was comfortable that the software did exactly as it promised it was just a matter of de-checking the preview button, allowing a new scan to be performed and ‘voila' the database improvements were made.

Excellent piece of software, and as a DJ well worth the investment to re-tag my very large collection.

Love it!

I use MusicBee and made the mistake of allowing it to read and 'correct' metadata for about 8,000 songs. Most of my library now has completely wrong info and this has become a valuable tool for me to correct that

I used the trail for quite a few albums and got tired of the limit and decided it would be well worth it to own

Only issues have been with 'greatest hits' and b-side compilations as well as occasional demos will receive the incorrect info (normally it rolls with the more popular studio album the traxk appears on), so i need to just run through and double check before saving. Overall has been worth every penny and im excited to continue restoring my music library

The overall ease of use and layout is petty good. What disturbs me a little is that the automatic correction does not update metadata when there is already some basic data there. You have to go through every release one by one and check these by release if you want metadata updated or added. Also the update from Musicbrainz is terribly slow most of the time, though I strongly suspect this is the Musicbrainz API most of the time and not necessarily Jaikoz. MP3tag is a lot faster with Musicbrainz, though not with Discogs.

Though Jaikoz looks fairly professional, some file handling and database optimization really needs to be done for collections of over 100k tracks locally on SSD, or about 50k when this collection resides on external storage like a NAS. Any larger than this and the GUI gets sluggish and so once in a while just stops responding all together for a few seconds. Also memory use frequently exceeds 12GB when a larger collection is loaded. (I'm running Jaikoz on a server with 2 CPU, 8 core each, 64GB of memory Windows Server 2019 standard, 4 OCZ Vertex 4 250Gb SSD and 500Mbit internet connection).

Overall the accuracy is very good though. If the tracks are a decent quality and the release is in the Musicbrainz or Discogs database, Jaikoz will correctly tag the tracks with an over 99% accuracy.

It's great. I love that I can run it on my Synology NAS and designate a watch folder.
