Jaikoz and Songkong works well sometimes and does not at other times. They need to know when the lookup is for an album so it does not report things like 24 total tracks. Then sometimes it "finds" all or some of the tracks but on inspection many or all the track names are incorrect. What do we do to force Jaikoz to be more accurate when this happens? I do prefer Jaikoz because it is easier to edit when things go wrong.
eg of problem: Jerry Butler Lp, Name:You And Me, Mercury lebel, Sr No. SR-61269. 10 tracks total. I entered the artist's name and the Album Title for track 1 and submitted to Jaikoz. Result Track 1, Different Album Title, Correct Name of Song and Correct antwork. Tried again result: Not the same album title as above but still incorrect and Incorrect track name and different artwork.
How to get better result from Jaikoz?

I've been using it (7.2 / 1126) in anger for a few weeks now on a windows 10 desktop. Processing is fine and it appears to successfully work as expected in most cases. Fully expecting it not to clean everything up since some of my FLACS are not in good shape so garbage in/garbage out as they say.

HOWEVER the desktop UI is poor and needs some work. Of course this doesn't necessarily impact performance but it is freeware standard. I currently process my batches through SongKong and some Freeware which I would position as equally as good. They do things slightly differently I assume, notwithstanding one invariably picks up items the other has failed to fix (and their UI is much better).

Overall I'm fine with it hence the rating....Planning to attack the Classical part of my collection shortly so looking forward to see how it handles that.

Jaikoz is a very powerful ID3 tagger with many advanced options, however the interface is a bit dated and I have found it difficult to use at times. My music collection is very eclectic and it does have difficulty matching many of my tracks, but it works very well for mainstream music. I hope development continues and improvements are made. Better documentation would always be welcome. Keep up the good work!

While the ap helped with meta data tagging and labeling, I wish it had done more to fix library issues. For example, I have yet to find an application that intelligently assists with albums. For example, if I have 7 tracks in my library from a deluxe album version and 3 that are not labeled as on the deluxe album, why can't an application fix this automatically? While I will continue to use the application for labeling and advanced playlists, I wish it did more without manual review.

Little glitchy at times especially if you are trying to handle massive amounts of files (thousands at a time) but with a little patience this software will save you days if not weeks of work

Not happy with the annual licensing scheme. I have a 300+ CD collection, so getting through it in less than a year will be a challenge. It would be nice to have a standardization capability. (Composer’s names, for example.) Application does not seem to be very Mac-Centric.

Hi Stanley, Jaikoz can work on multiple CDs in one go you dont have to fix songs one cd at a time, so you could have the majority done within a few hours. But I think you may have misunderstood the licensing the license you have purchased gives you free use of this version forever, so if it takes you more than a year no problem. Then in a years time you can pay £10 for another year of version updates to newer versions but you don't have to, your existing version will not stop working. Not sure what you mean by Standarization capability, but composers added to the composer field should always display the same way. It is a cross-platform application that works much the same way for Windows, Mac and Linux, so yes its fair comment that it is not as Mac like as applications written specifically and only for the Mac platform. thanks Paul

Jaikoz works nicely for the high-end purpose I needed it for--adding comprehensive metadata to WAV and MP3 files for distribution to radio stations and websites. The depth of the program is unreal. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a serious way of cataloging and tracking musical releases. That said, it's not a toy. There is a serious learning curve to use it effectively. It's "real" software, sort of on an Excel level of complexity an versatility. But it has fields for every bit of info you may need to implant into a recording.

Great program, saves a ton of time once you properly configure it to your liking. I still need to dig a bit deeper into the album art side of things, but am very impressed with what I found so far. I just whish I had found this software sooner !

I’m a bit confused as to where this program puts files when it’s tagged them
Would be good if there was a configure tab where is was easy to set a save file for fixed songs. Had a post back in a few hours on what I was doing wrong now all sorted and working fab thank you

Hi, the metadata is added to the files and by default files are not renamed or moved. But you can easily move matched files to a mover folder by setting one on the File Naming tab

Not perfect but it def helped me accomplish my goal of tagging a bunch of Bob Marley shows or my home NAS. I wish adding artwork was a little easier. All in all a good product that will help you batch tag a bunch of files fast.

I had been using MusicBrainz and decided to try to speed things up with Jaikoz but I discovered that the learning curve is pretty steep and the benefits would not be that much better than continuing with MusicBrainz. I'm very particular about matching tags and artwork to my physical CDs so I don't trust automated approaches and realized I need manual oversight no matter what. I probably didn't give it a fair trial, but I just don't see that Jaikoz is worth the money, and learning curve time investment. I used dbPoweramp to rip CDs so my tags were at a good starting point and it worked well to clean things up with MusicBrainz. I'm not thrilled with MusicBrainz either but it's free and I can't complain too much. I'm really surprised audio file metadata tagging isn't much easier by this point.

After having tried many different solutions for tagging my MP3 files, this is for me the best one and worth paying for. I only mis a functionality to search for and automatically add lyrics, you can add this manually though but have to look for them yourself. I was concerned becuse the site itself has no security certificate, protocol is http and not https, the payment system is.

This is intriguing software but with my limited time it is taking awhile to learn to use it effectively. It installed and has updated flawlessly. I look forward to updating my rating as I become a more effective user.

excellent app bought because of ability to get earliest recording date (which sometimes you have to search 2 or 3 times so not automatic) and it is quite slow to start up and first start the search

Great programme to find album covers, and there’s a lot of fun in it.
There is still some things that could be improved.
The normal situation will be people checking a collection of recordings, not just a single album.
This requires that you go through the alphabetical list of album titles.
When you do that in Jaikoz, the listing always jumps back to the first album in the collection and not to the one you’ve just worked on. That could be much better.
I use and like discogs quite a lot. It’s a bit annoying that you often find the all the information if you check in discogs manually, whereas Jaikoz doesn’t find anything. Apart from that a great little program.
