INFO: Jaikoz Music Tagger 11 now with Roon support, and 20% discount for Roon Customers

Hi, you may already aware of Jaikoz Music Tagger, a comprehensive automatic and manual editing tagger available for MacOS,Windows and and Linux. Or you may be aware of the SongKong Music Tagger, this is a fully automated tagger with extensive Roon support.

The good news is I have now added the same Roon support to Jaikoz as well

Roon is a great application for playing your music, but Jaikoz music tagging features can make it even better, and like Roon we really care about metadata. Roon cannot always identify all your music, especially if your music includes partial albums or invalid metadata.

Using Jaikoz on your music library:
Improves the metadata to allow Roon to identify albums it could not previously
Can also reorganize folder structure to put split albums back into one album = one folder to help Roon identify.
Adds additional metadata for albums that Roon could identify but has limited information
Adds metadata for albums that Roon still cannot identify so they display better in Roon

And we are offering Roon customers a 20% discount on Jaikoz Pro , just enter JAIKOZWITHROON as a promo code to the shopping cart.

You may be wondering which is better SongKong or Jaikoz, its really upto personal taste and some customers purchase both. But in nutshell SongKong is good if you want to let it get on with automatically organize your music once you have configured the options, it can usually process a music collection of any size in one go, and it is available for headless devices such as Nas drives because it provide a web user interface as well as a desktop interface. Whereas Jaikoz is more like a traditional music tagger, it is much better for manual editing than SongKong, and it is very good for adhoc automated tagging as well but is only available as a desktop application.

We have a new version of Jaikoz, Jaikoz 11.1 Hole full details can be found here

Jaikoz is a great option if you like the idea of SongKongs automated matching but would like more control over your tagging, and we continue to provide a 20% discount on Jaikoz Pro, just enter JAIKOZWITHROON as promo code

This release has three main areas of focus:

Improvements to User Interface
We now support the main view/edit table being multi tabbed so now you can view many fields without having to scroll to the right, the tabs are fully configurable and you can have as few or many as you like, see Jaikoz Main Edit Table is now Multi Tab - Jaikoz Announcements - SongKong and Jaikoz Music Tagger Community Forum for details.

Perhaps the most requested feature has now been done, we now support multiple-column sorting see Jaikoz and Multi Column Sorting - Jaikoz Announcements - SongKong and Jaikoz Music Tagger Community Forum for more details

Supporting both these features required updating a number of libraries and alot of code changes, we have other UI improvements on the way but don’t like to make too many drastic changes to the UI in a single release.

SongKong Compatibility
Jaikoz and SongKong have similar matching algorithms and support the same metadata fields, but they were doing things a bit differently. Some customers use both applications and this meant that if you matched your library in SongKong and then updated them in Jaikoz some fields would get modified, then if you updated in SongKong they would get modified again, this release aims to eliminate this yo-yo ing.

We also have modified the default settings of Jaikoz to better match the SongKong default profile

Additionally we have added full support for release level performers, Discogs performers and Roon Recording Location and Dates to match SongKong

Bug Fixing
We have updated the jaudiotagger music tagging library, this has over twenty fixes since the last Jaikoz release, and we have fixed a number of Jaikoz bugs recently reported by customers.

Another new version !
