I stand corrected. I misunderstood your description of the lookup and assumed that it only checked using the track title. My bad.

I like the possibility to manually update tags from Musicbrainz - great feature.

However, I personally find that the existing lookup design with using the song title as the only mbrainz search key does not quite meet my Jaikoz needs.

I find that I often have a rather good idea of the name of the artist (give or take a few spelling errors), the album name (again, give or take a few minor string errors) and the track number (correct or missing). The song titles are sometimes correct, sometimes missing, and I do not trust them as an authority on identifying a song.

I would like to be able to query musicbrainz using a combination of these 3 fields (album, artist, track no) instead of just the title field as search key. I would also love for Jaikoz to, after sorting the spread sheet after sub folder, look vertically across neighbouring songs and assume that all the songs in the same folder belong to the same album by the same album artist and consider this when doing the musicbrainz lookup (and merge the lookup results accordingly).

If Jaikoz looked vertically within each subfolder, it could then possibly do away with those annoying musicbrain searches where 8 out of 10 songs in an album are matched and you have to manually edit the last 2, or where all songs are matched but to slightly different albums by the same artist.

I may be off on a tangent here and requesting something that is really hard to build, but think that it would be quite cool if it was possible.

Cheers from Sweden,
Great! Thanks for the quick turnaround.

If you are about to make a new release, you might want to have a look at the Find & Replace menu entry in the latest version. In my version (see earlier post), it just gives me a Find option with no way to then replace what I have found. I might be wrong, but I would expect it to present me with a second replace field in the popup.

Cheers and thanks for an excellent app,

I am trying to rebuild my folder tree from tags in an A/Artist/Album fashion. I have successfully done this with past versions of Jaikoz.

Jaikoz has no problems redesigning the new folder structure, and highlights in purple the folder changes that are about to take place. When trying to write all files (Save Changes) Jaikoz fails to rename the folders, however. Instead it complains of not finding the files and asks me if an external application has moved them. It appears to me that Jaikoz tries to find the file to move by using their future paths and not their current paths.

I can not find anything in the manual about this and am suspecting that this might be a bug. I am running OS X 10.4.10 and Jaikoz 1.11 build 1031.

Any pointers on how to solve this would be most appreciated (I hope that it is not just me being daft).

Kind regards,
