I'm running Jaikoz 7.11 on Windows 8.

I use discogs styles as my genres and generally this works great but I do end up with inconsistencies such as hip hop, hip-hop, drum n bass, drum & bass etc

As there is no whitelist of genres that I can use I'm trying to set up a word replacer to local correct genres after tagging from Discogs. I have the following set up in Preferences:

Manipulators Tab/Word Replacer Sub-Tab

Custom replacer set up as "Genre Replace" (no quotes) containing...

From      To
Hip Hop     Hip-Hop
Drum n Bass   Drum & Bass

and various others...

Local Correct Tab/Automatch Sub-Tab

"Do local correct on songs that already have a musicbrainz id" - Checked

Local Correct Tab/Autoformat Sub-Tab/Genre

"Enable Replacement" - Checked
"Replace words by another word" - Genre Replace

Save and exit preferences.

I then run Actions/Local Correct/Correct Genres and..... nothing changes. I think I'm doing everything correctly but I'm lost as to what I'm missing. Any ideas?

Also not to muddy the waters but I have a second issue. I have my genres set to discogs style and my grouping set to discogs genres which works fine on the automated tasks. However if I select an album and run it through "match to one discogs option" it pulls through one of the discogs genres e.g. rock, electronic as well as the discogs styles as the genres.

I want to move Jaikoz over to use a Whitelist/Greylist like SongKong instead, what do you think http://jthink.net/songkong/help/help.html#d5e196

As long as it's user configurable I would love a whitelist/greylist for genres.

Edit - Having read your link to the Songkong implementation that looks perfect. Especially if it's essentially a text file or a csv.

On the subject of genres, some version of releases on discogs don't have any genre/style wheres others do. Say LP has it and CD doesn't. Is there any way to get Jaikoz to check other versions of the release if no genre/style is found on the one that it's matched to?

Yes I can do that when I update the data in the JthinkMusic Server - I ve added to the bug tracker.

That would be great. In fact if the same could apply to artwork where not on selected item but available on nearest version I would be most pleased!

Also I can see what the issue is now with the Genres/Styles from discogs and it's happening on auto-correct too.

If there are more than one Discogs Genre, Jaikoz is mapping the first one to Grouping and the rest to Genre along with the styles.

For example http://www.discogs.com/release/3650214

Based on my mappings this should have the following:

Discogs Genre to Jaikoz Grouping (Max 9) = 1. Electronic 2. Rock
Discogs Style to Jaikoz Genre (Max 9) = 1. Alternative Rock 2. Experimental

In reality what the Jaikoz does is:

Grouping: Electronic
Genre: 1. Rock 2. Alternative Rock 3. Experimental

So I guess it's a bug.

Ah yes you are right I have assumed there is only one genre per release http://jthink.net:8081/browse/JAIKOZ-904
