Hi , I am totally new and just buyed Jaikoz for Mac.

How can I get rename the filename in a format that I like & getting the data out of , let's say Muscbrainz?

I have for example a filename from Elvis like this :

03.The Wonder of You

After running Jaikoz to Musibrainz , he find the correct album & info (year, cd etc) .
Now I want to adapt my filename as follows:

Elvis Presley (1977) - The Wonder Of You
AND adapt also the tag with this info plus a additional field - Comment & Genre that I will fill in myself ... Reason behind is that I am DJ and use Serato , I like to update my library with Jaikoz , so that the tagging is correct in the layout I need...

Not complicated , but I cannot figure this out , how to install masks ...
Can anybody please help me on the basics ?

Thx
Dirk

So you can run Action:File and Folder Correct:Rename Filenames from Metadata and this will use the rename mask defined in Preferences:File and Folder Correct:Correct Filename From Metadata:Rename Mask.

Sounds like you not sure how to run rename masks, and then you need to amend this rename mask

Code:
 ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,' - ') 
 + ifnotempty(album,' - ') 
 + ifnotempty(pad(trackno,2),' - ') 
 + title
 


I'm not totally clear what you want, but if you cannot get it working I can help you out.

Make sure you have the Base Folder, Sub Folder and filename columns displayed then just running Action:File and Folder Correct:Rename Filenames from Metadata wil show the effect on your loaded files.

Running File:Save will then actually rename the files for real.
