Jaikoz overview

Jaikoz allows you to organize, edit, and correct thousands of songs with ease. It currently supports MP4, M4P, MP3, WMA, FLAC, and OggVorbis audio formats. Jaikoz uses MusicBrainz, an online database of over 10 million songs. MusicBrainz is a community-based database with contributions by over 200,000 people, and its system of moderation ensures the data is extremely accurate. Many of these songs also have associated acoustic IDs provided by MusicIP, allowing a song to be identified by the actual music, so it can do a match even if if you have no metadata.

But no identification system is 100% accurate so we have made it as quick and easy as possible to edit your data manually as well. Jaikoz uses a convenient spreadsheet view to allow you to edit information very quickly and provides many autoformatting features that do most of the work for you.

Features
  • Free upgrades for life for all versions, minor or major
  • Supports MP4, M4P, MP4, MP3, FLAC, WMA, and OggVorbis formats
  • Acoustic matching using MusicBrainz and MusicIP to match tracks based on the actual music
  • Metadata matching using MusicBrainz to match tracks from the metadata in your files either automatically or manually
  • Automatically retrieve artwork from Internet
  • Intelligent AutoMatch compares different Audio files and finds field matches, and then allows all similar fields to be formatted the same
  • Intelligent AutoFormat provides automatic capitalization, conversion of special words, and removal of invalid characters and punctuation marks
  • Intelligent FileName to Tagger can extract information from the filename into the tag without having to know the format of the field
  • Rename filenames and folders from your metadata in your chosen format
  • AutoCorrect can be used to perform automatic formatting of your chosen columns in a single click
  • Provides full support of all text fields and easy tagging of large number of audio files
  • The innovative split-screen spreadsheet view allows easy comparison of changes during editing
  • Automatically keeps v1 and v2 tags synchronised
  • Full Unicode support allow any character from any language to be used
  • Easy conversion of tags between version
  • Displays what is actually contained in the tag allowing the user full control
  • Jaikoz runs on OS X 10.4 and later, Windows, and Linux
  • Jaikoz is internationalized, currently supports English, German, Greek, Italian, and Spanish

Seriously, who's gullible enough to pay almost $40 for a tag editor. You can do it in iTunes for free.

Wav support was talked about on the forums in 2014 yet in August 2018 still not implemented. Went with Amvidia Tag Editor for the primary auto tagging and Nightbirdsevolve Meta 1.8.6 mainly for album artwork. If NB Meta adds auto tagging through MusicBrainz or other I believe that would serve my needs quite well. ADD WAV support Jaikoz

Messed up the metadata on a bunch of albums, one or two songs on the albums would be tagged differently from the rest so that each album would be split up. I had to go back and re-tag them by hand to fix it. Probably due to bad data in the MusicBrainz database. Also couldn't identify a bunch of classical albums, even though I could find them on the web in the Discogs database.

I use Jaikoz for years and it's the most complete MP3 Tagger I've ever used. I had to write a specific MP3 version to have my car's radio show all information and Jaikoz was able to do it. Its interface is not the most beautiful but its features are great. There have been no paid updates ever since so the value for buying it is really great compared to other tools which require upgrade fees for major releases (which always is in the hands of the developer to determine).

As a musician, I'm often sending out MP3 files of our original songs. While I can set some ID3 tag fields from Pro Tools or other audio engineering software, it does not permit me to set all of the fields I need. So I use Jaikoz, which gives me access especially to ISRC, so I can tag all demo and special request audio files, increasing the odds our song plays will be credited to us. As a creator of media, this tool is invaluable, efficient and simple to use.

Like a number of people who have left reviews, I tried a number of tagging solutions to sort through my 1TB of music that I've collected over the years, and Jaikoz is by far the very best. I'm very anal about having consistent naming for all of files, and for years applied very consistent formatting in naming/organizing my zillions of photographs. A few years ago I finally decided to apply this to my disastrous music collection before moving it into iTunes, and like I said, this app beat out all the others (and in fact was the only one that could do every single thing with the music that I wanted to). There is a bit of a learning curve with this software, but for me it was worth it because it meant I could customize ANYTHING I wanted to, and was able to name my files in a way that perfectly satisfied my severe OCD! =0) One other thing to mention is that the few times I have needed to contact Paul (the developer) with questions, he has almost always replied the same day, sometimes within the hour. Today I had a new question and he replied within 5 minutes (which prompted me to leave this review, which I had been meaning to do for a long time anyway since I love this program so much)! I highly recommend this software for anyone who like me can't stand to have a messy music collection! I realized early on this program is also amazingly useful for people who like to make music compilations (kind of like making mix tapes back in the days of cassettes for all you old-timers like me out there), as you can fully customize the tagging in the compilation and add album covers to all of the files and give your compilation a very professional feel. Very nice!

I've downloaded music since before the golden days of Napster. I've got Mpeg 1 stuff hanging around and over 15K tracks. The high one gets in seeing each track methodically handled and nurtured by Jaikoz is out of this world. This is an awesome application. In a world where shit just doesn't work, it is so satisfying to use something that completes very complicated tasks so well and reliably. It's like a software orgasm. I don't know what else to say. Jaikoz should get some kind of award for superior function, it restores one's hope in the idea that technology can improve your life and mental health. Buy it once and then buy it twice.

I've tested most of the taggers for Mac and the one doing it all is Jaikoz. It's a complex application, so the ease of use is not that good. It took me some days testing with different settings to get the best results. The more you work with it, the more you realize how powerful Jaikoz is.

What the app can do is great (5 stars), but the app itself is not so great (3 stars). Be very careful and do things step-by-step.

Does this allow you to edit tags & metadata for videos as well (i.e. m4v, etc.)?

When you think your iTunes library is clean... There's always a lot of ID3 junk somewhere you don't see in iTunes, until you need to import your songs into another software. Jaikoz is the tool you need if you want to clean up tags you don't need anymore and keep the good ones! Not really easy to use at first, but the more you explore it, the more you realize it can do everything you really need. Highly recommendable.

I adopted Jaikoz many years ago and dragging files in it it’s a necessary step to maintain my iTunes. It works very well and recognize quite every MP3. Sadly it has a Java GUI so it is ugly and slow :-) It is also not easy to use: every time you need something more then press CMD+1 or CMD+5 you have to navigate in preferences or menus hard to understand. An easier way to update would be also welcomed since the fast releases cycle.
