Okay, so if you don't select "force metadata matches made through acoustic fingerprinting," it doesn't use the current metada when doing a match, right? It just finds a version of metada for the matching acoustic ID, right, because, as far as I know, an acoustic ID just correlates to ONE of the releases of it and not all of them. Is that correct?

So, the new matching system options from the 30th of 2008 version won't even use those options to match if an acoustic ID is found, right?

So, am I correct in thinking if I select "force metadata matches when there is an acoustic fingerprint", then it WILL utilize the new options?

If not, I think there should be an option to just do metada match (automatically; I know there is the manual metada match), even if the song has an acoustic ID with it.

Or, if my assumptions are not correct, you could utilize the new options by Jaikoz automatically (when you press do MusicBrainze matches) finding the metada with an acoustic ID of the song and finding releases that match the metadata of the one with the acoustic ID, going by the new options.

No that is not correct, an acoustic id can match multiple tracks on multiple releases. and if multiple tracks are found for an acoustic ID then Jaikoz will always use the metadata to try and pick the correct track. The 'Acoustic Id Match must also have minimum meta rating' (is this the one you mean) means that whenever you get an acoustic id match (be it against single or multiple tracks) it will only select the match if its metadata has a rating better than 'Minimum rating required if have an Acoustic Id Match' value. This option is not enabled by default.

But if there is an acoustic ID match, will it utilize the new options (try to find official release, try to find certain types of releases, try to find releases used before, etc.)? If 'Acoustic Id Match must also have minimum meta rating' is selected? If not?

If there is only one Acoustic Id match then the match has been found, there is no point doing anthing else because Jaikoz assumes that an acoustic id match is better than a meta match without an acoustic id match. However if meta rating option is selected then a rating will be calculated for the match and it will only be returned if it beats the threshold.

If there are multiple Aoustic Id matches, then Jaikoz will work out a metamatch rating based on the user options to find the the best match of the acoustic ids that matched. If the minimum meta rating option is selected then the best match will only be selected if it beats the threshold.
