Wednesdays What’s New: Make Sweet Music With Jaikoz!

by Kevin Blalock, Quality Assurance

In today’s world, everyone has an mp3 collection. I do, and it is pretty ridiculous. I have been storing my music in digital format as long as the technology to do so has been around. Currently, I have close to 250gb of music. Now what is more ridiculous than having that much music? Making sure it has correct metadata. I can’t tell you how many of those are named Track 1.mp3, Track 2.mp3,  and so on.

So, I have been looking for tools that can help clean all that mess up. There are many out there, and like everything else, some better than others. I believe I have found the best all around app out there for cleaning up your music collection. It is called Jaikoz.  It is java based and runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. The full version will run you about $20 but it is WELL worth it! Here is a quick run down on some of the features:

– Works on windows, mac, and linux
– Tagging of mp4, m4a, m4p, mp3, wma, flac, and ogg. (No need for multiple tagging applications to fix all of your music)
– Uses MusicBrainz, an online database of over nine million songs. (using metadata)
– Many also have an Acoustic ID provided by AmpliFIND
– Allows manual editing of metadata
– Fixes artwork
– Can autocorrect your lyrics with Lyrics Fly
– Free upgrades and support so you get all the latest features at no cost

Do you have experience with this program? If so, we’d love to hear what you have to say about it!
