"If it works for me, it'll work for you."

April 01, 2010  |  By s.price

 |  Version: Jaikoz Audio Tagger 3.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'll be upfront; I have 149,648 music tracks in iTunes at the moment. (I'm one of *those* people.) I don't have the time or energy to go through one track at a time, or even an album at a time, and manage my music. Finding a program I can load my collection into is even a bit epic. So I use Jaikoz to do it for me. I can think of features that I would like, and the interface isn't the best, but it is the best program I've found for managing my music.

With one click, it is set up to label unlabeled tracks, delete any duplicates, add missing information, hunt down lyrics & album art, and generally make my collection shine. I use the log files to root out any corrupted music files for me to delete.

With so many music files from so many sources, you can guess it's like a minefield for a program to process. I'm pleased to report that Jaikoz handles most of my files fine, and when it chokes I've worked with the developer to fix the bug. And Paul makes new releases regularly.

So, in summary, Jaikoz isn't a perfect program, but it's best-in-class.

"The Best of all Taggers"

Summary

OK, you can criticise this for being a tad 'un-Mac-like' but it does more than any tagger (and I challenge anyone to even approach all of its options). All in all, a stupendous piece of work!

"How about an interface?"

April 01, 2010  |  By psommariva

 |  Version: Jaikoz Audio Tagger 3.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This application is quite impressive by what it can do - that is if you invest enough time to figure out HOW to do it.

My first try resulted in destroying a good 1000 songs. Good I keep multiple backups and could enjoy the rest of my evening restoring iTunes.

It has by far the worst interface I have ever seen on a Mac, and that's since my MacPlus. Clearly the author has never bothered to open the user interface books by Apple.

What's new in version 3.5
  • Delete Duplicates has a number of improvements. From Preferences:Local Correct:Delete Duplicates you can now decide if the duplicated files should actually be deleted like in previous versions or just moved to a Deletions folder. This allows you to review the deletions further outside of Jaikoz, and it also lets you process songs in batches and then check for further duplicates within the duplicates ! Alternatively you can convert deleted files to links to the remaining duplicate, this is useful for preserving your album structure whilst only keeping one physical copy of the song. On OSX links are created as Aliases, on Windows as Shortcuts and on Linux as Symbolic Links. When you choose the link option the linked files are shown with a status of 'L' until they have been saved.
  • Standard deletions can also be moved to a special Deletion Folder now, specified in Preferences:Save:General. Its like having your own Trash or Recycle Bin just for Jaikoz.
  • You can now specify a different mask for songs on compilations when renaming filenames and subfolders. This is useful for naming your compilations differently to your standard albums, and can be set in Preferences:File And Folder Correct:Rename Folder from Tags and Preferences:File And Folder Correct:Rename File from Tags
  • Can now specify whether songs should be removed from iTunes when duplicates are moved to the Duplicates folder using the Preferences:Local Correct:Delete Duplicates:Delete from iTunes if moving Duplicates checkbox
  • Added empty columns options, to clear the values of all visible fields in that column. This option is accessible by right-clicking the column header, and a subset of columns can also be cleared from the Edit:Empty Columns menu.
  • Added new translations for French, Russian, Danish, Swedish and Norweigen
  • Jaikoz playlists in iTunes are now created in an iTunes playlist sub folder.
  • Copy/Paste context menus are now available for the fields in the Detail pane.
  • Copy can now be selected for multiple rows and columns, previously was only allowed for multiple rows
  • The Edit actions such as Capitalizer are now allowed if some of fields selected are suitable instead of requiring all fields to be suitable, unsuitable fields are just ignored.
  • If you try and open files from a folder that is already loaded Jaikoz now just ignores files that are already loaded instead of preventing the open completely.
  • Improved stability connecting to Lyrics server.
  • Contention issues when updating Tag Browser with changes.
  • Occasional NullPointerException when clustering songs.
  • ArrayList OutOfBoundsException when running in Autocorrecter if you run Delete Duplicates, Save Changes and then another task.
  • Symbolic link or alias files cannot be loaded in Jaikoz, they should not be because might also have the original file loaded
  • If you run an Edit task such as Capitalizer whilst having a field in the detail tab in the throws of being edited the value in that field gets blanked out
  • When I copy the album, artist, and title I noticed that copying out from these fields in the list appends a tab character to everything.
  • Language field is showing up in Comments on details tab
  • Word replacer not converting &'s to and
  • Can now read compressed ID3 frames.
