I'd love to buy this program, so far it's the only one I've found that enables me to update my songs to the original release date and ignores all of those ridiculous compilation albums.

However I've found that I can only achieve this by selecting one song at a time, which obviously takes forever.

Can I assume that someone has written a script so that you can select multiple songs and achieve the same goal?

Hi, thanks for your interest

Now are you talking about running Action:Remote Correct:Autocorrect Metadata from MusicBrainz or Action:Remote Correct:Update Metadata from MusicBrainz

Both work on multiple files no problem so your problem is either:

1. You are not selecting multiple rows (on the recno column). If no rows are selected they will run on all rows, but if just one row is selected then it will just run on that row.

2. You are trying to run Autocorrect Metadata from MusicBrainz and it only works if you run against one file at a time. if this is the case it is because by default Jaikoz trys to match complete releases and the files being provided are perhaps random files, see this post http://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/18840.page

Thanks for the reply.

OK all I'm doing is selecting 20 songs from the left hand column (often of the same artist) and selecting auto-correct. I kind of worked out that Jaikoz tries to solve them as albums as they are corrected if I select them one at a time.

What I was asking was if anyone has written a script that goes though them one at a time to get around this?

I have around 12k songs, in one folder which is my preferred option at the moment, and I'd like to have the dates on them corrected to the original release dates.

Thanks
Fiona

So the issue is your songs are all in folder but no script is required, just disable Remote Correct:Only Allow Match if all Songs in Grouping matched
