I usually combine multi-CD release in to one big "album", so that I all tracks are in one subdirectory.
The problem is however that I sometimes end up with more than 99 tracks. The "edit - renumber track nos" function (which is quite usufull btw.) will start at 01, then after 99 continue with 100 etc...
I always start the filename with the track number, and this mixture of 2 and three figure track numbers messes up the directory sort order.
So would it be possible to either:
- Have a switchable option for three figure track nos. So they start with 001, and a 1 entered is converted to 001.
or
- Change the "renumber track nos" function so that it uses three figures as soon as more than 99 tracks are renumbered.
On second thought this is probably to complex to completely automate. Currently I am exporting tags to Excel and doing the manipulations I need there.
I would like to be able to set some tags to (part of) other tags. The reason is the following.

I have a lot of classical music, and titles are formatted according to the Misicbrainz convention:

Symphony No. 2 in B-flat Major, D125 - I. Largo. Allegro

I would like to split that in "work" and "movement" (by splitting on -), and put the values in "custom1" and "custom2", so I can use them to create subdirectories.

This is so that I can organize my classical music connection like this:
<composer>/<work>/<album>(<albumartist>)/<tracknr>-<movement>

Hello,

It would be nice to have a way to save settings in a profile, so one can quickyl change between to different configurations.
I generally process classical music differently from popular music, and have to change a few settings each time (and risk forgetting them).
So a way to have settings profiles would be nice.
The following pattern in file rename:
$if(%discno%,%discno%-)$if(%trackno%,%trackno%-)%title%

Leads to filenames like this:
1-01-Nocturnes II. Fêtes.flac

However, it would be more consistent to have double digit disc numbers as wel. Like this:
01-01-Nocturnes II. Fêtes.flac

Can this be considered for the next release?

Hi, this problem can ocassionally occur on upgrading, just need to delete the jaikozdb as described in this post

I also thought that it might be some part of the old Jaikoz lingering around. I upgraded from a very old version (hadn't used it in a while).

But I can't follow the instructions as outlined in the post. I don't have a "Jaikoz" directory under "Library" that I can remove.

Where did the 2.x version of Jaikoz for Mac store there settings?

It looks like I have the same problem on my Mac. Altough the error message is less verbose (MacOSX hides the whole stack dump from me).

When I start Jaikoz 3.3.4 I get the following message:
java.sql.BatchUpdateException: Table/View 'ARTWORK' does not exist.

What is going on here?

I appreciate your predicament but it seems you are saying you have an albums worth of tracks in a folder but some have metadata that corresponds to the US release and osme have metadata that corresponds to the Europe release. Then you want Jaikoz to autocorrect these tags from Musicbrainz dismissing the existing metadataand preferring to simply use the foldername to get the best match.

 


Basically what I'd like is that I could tell MusicBrainz to consider a directory as a whole release, look which release matches the whole set of tracks best, and tag the set all from the same release.
There are for example cases where there are different releases that only have an extra track. For example a release with 11 tracks and one with 12 tracks. When tagging a folder with 12 files I would prefer Jaikoz to tag all of them with the 12 track release, and not the first 11 with the 11 track release and the 12th one with the other...

You must realize that in most cases the metadata is more accurate than the foldername, and often users have a folder that contains many unfixed Songs so it would be madness to assume they were all in the same folder.
 

If course, it would have to be a feature that is optional, or can be tuned.

Anyway, I've recently started to use picard too, which at least shows me where albums are split, and where joining them together again is just a simple drag and drop operation.


Hello,

Sometimes an albub gets released under different names in different countries.

For example: I have a flac rip of a record by Cecilia Bartolli that was released as "Arie Antiche: Se tu m'ami" in Europe, but as "If You Love Me: 18th-Century Songs" in the US. MusicBrainz has both albums in its database, with the correct information.
The songs are inconsistently tagged, and I want to correct that using Jaikoz, So I let Jaikoz update the tags from MusicBrainz.

My problem is that on this album Jaikoz tags some tracks as if the were part of the European release, some other tracks as if they were part of the US release (thus with different album name) and some tags are not processed at all (album stays empty)
I've seen similar behaviour with other albums, and it gets worse even for "best off" collections where Jaikoz will set the album tags to the original album, not the compilation.

Is there a way to improve this? I'd like somehow to force Jaikoz to treat anything that shares a directory to be considerd part of the same album or compilation.

Thanks in advance,
Mmmm. Cancel that. Must be some weird Samba Problem, as I can't read these files with any program from my mac.
I'm using Jaikoz to recover from a diskcrash and reorganize my files in the process. Jaikoz did a fine job here, but I do have an issue.

Jaikoz complains that osme files are "read only" when they are in fact not:

Interestingly the only files he complains about are files with special characters in their names. Is this a bug?
OS is MacOSX, the files are on a Samba share.
