I have all the WAV files ripped from my NAIM that I want to tag using SongKong.

There is a file called meta.naim in each folder with the WAV files. This has the metadata in it. Can SongKong use this to tag the files?

The Naim files we currently process are:

amginfo.xml (Matches from Amg/Rovi)

cddbinfo.txt (Matches from cddb)

UserEdits.xml (Edits made in Naim app)

Naim use these on UnitiServe to store metadata for Wav files

But I dont know about about meta.naim and if it has superceded some of this, we don't currently support meta.naim but could you send some to support@jthink.net so I can take a look.

@agillis, I also had a ton of CD rips that came from my NAIM HDX.
There was no meta.naim, also not a hidden file. Paul summarized the files you should see in each folder of any NAIM imported CD.

I am almost done with my Flac conversion (with XLD using my Mac) and using SongKong on my Melco N1 as weil as Jaikoz on my Mac too to get metadata embedded into the music files.

Looking back I have to say that the NAIM files were not helpful at all as the metadata that the HDX pulled were really poor. There might have been a few CDs that were only available at the AMG database but in these cases the amount of metadata was kept flat.

Just my 2 cents and others might think differently.

Jaikoz on macos
SongKong on Melco & unRAID Docker
MinimServer on Melco
