Want Jaikoz to match every song individually  XML

So my preferred way of matching is that every song should be matched to its earliest album release. I don't want any compilations whatsoever (or as much as is possible).

Right now, let's say I load in a bunch of songs from the Billboard Top 100 of 1964 and just hit the Autocorrect that does all the songs at the same time. There's a decent amount of Beatles songs in there and it looks like Jaikoz wants to put them on the same album release as much as is possible. So they end up being put together on one of the dozens of Beatles compilations.

If I select each song individually and do an autocorrect then it at least chooses the original single release.

Is there any way to just hit the Autocorrect button once but have Jaikoz process the songs as if they were each there individually? Like I said before, I'd prefer if it would assign them to the earliest album release that isn't a compilation, but the current behavior of matching it to the original single release is fine too.

This might not give perfect results but try this.

Go to Preferences:Remote Correct


Prefer do not match Various Artist Compilations &
Prefer do not match Various Artist Compilations

are enabled


Only allow match if all songs in grouping were matched &
Only allow match if all songs inalbum were matched

are disabled

and that

Preferred Release Date is set to Earliest

and Preferred Media Formats is set to Vinyl

Then remove any metadata that would cause the best match to be a compilation, such as the album field referring to a compilation album.

then run Autocorrect

For ones that are matched incorrectly use Action:Remote Correct:Manual Correct Metadata from MusicBrainz and that will present you with choices in batches and you can picked the preferred match.
