I'm thinking of signing up with iTunes match so all my music is in the cloud. I understand that if there is a match form my music and in iTunes store it uses that (to stop large uploads), if it can find a match it then uploads that particular music.

So in prep, I only use my MP3 music on iPhones, iPads, Apple TV, basically all iOS, I have been cleaning up and just getting the naming correct, artwork, lyrics on, as this is enough for what I use.

What I'm wondering is if some music is uploaded, will Apple "read" the tags/data on the actual files (concerning with privacy data thats in the news a lot now). What will they know? I don't have anything to hide, but if some tags have Amazon ID, or comments, that are in there, could they read these etc?

Has anyone used iTunes match? should I just load up all my MP3 iTunes library into Jaikoz, then delete the columns, apart from name, album, artwork, lyrics that I don't use?

thanks

I don't think Apples care about that stuff you shoudl just concern yourself with matching the songs to MusicBrainz/Discogs before using iTunes match so that match works better.

Although I have Jaikoz, to be honest its a powerful app, but I wanted it mainly for to be able to see all tags, hidden, unused on my MP3s, so probably don't use it as was really meant for as such.

I was tagging manually using iTunes on a iMac itself. But then I found this app, and there was a multitude of other info in "hidden" tags. I wanted rid of them..

So I have been loading my MP3s, using Jaikoz to just delete the tag info thats I personally don't use, comments, amazon info etc. I don't use it with Musicbrainz, and tbh don't know how to!

I'm hoping that the tags I have got in their, basic I admit, can be seen using iTunes on a Mac, will be enough for iTunes match.

It can't hurt though. To be honest, that was one of the reason I bought jaikoz all those years back. It is awesome to be able to set the view to show every column. I use to group all the columns that I wanted to keep in the front of the sheet and all the ones I wanted to clear in the back of the sheet. Then I would just select the top left cell of the ones i wanted to clear and the bottom right cell and right click and delete. Then just save. Quick way to clear 10,000 or so files at a time in just a few seconds.

I found this useful at that time as I was getting music from multiple sources and sometimes there would be garbage that tagging software or other people put into them.

These days I use jaikoz for tagging all my music to add and fix those fields. I like all those other fields filled out with correct good info so that other apps I use to play my music can take advantage of it. A lot of players can use some of that info for better searching, recommendations, and sorting.

Thanks

So Jaikoz shows every available possible tag field in an MP3? So what I think I need to do is use the edit field to show all possible available tag fields and then as you say highlight them all and just delete (empty) the lot and just leave what I have currently.

I basically want all my MP3's "clean" of everything but what I've tagged in them via iTunes as they display fine on my iOS devices.

Thanks
