Jaikoz 8 Arrives: Complete Music Management Solution

Jaikoz 8

Today we release Jaikoz 8 this is an exciting release because it is the first time Jaikoz uses the JThink Music Server for both Discogs and MusicBrainz matching.

This means
  • Faster Matching
  • More Accurate Matching 
  • More Reliable Service
Faster matching because the  JThink Music Server is optimized for release matching - and is optimized  to show the data Jaikoz requires, not more and not less, this results in a minimum amount of api calls. In contrast the MusicBrainz server has to support all many different scenarios and customers and understandably has to make compromises

More Accurate Matching search has been optimized to best match the algorithm used by Jaikoz, and additional data such as finding the original release of a release is returned with the match.

More Reliable Service MusicBrainz service is available to many applications and because of this usage can vary wildly, and at times can become unresponsive.  Because the Jthink Music Server is only used by Jaikoz and SongKong demands on the server are less, and unlike the MusicBrainz server the Jthink Music Server can automatically scale to multiple machines when demand does peak.

Some New Features

We have also added
  • Match Songs to one MusicBrainz Album by Catalog No
  • Match Songs to one Discogs Album by Barcode
  • Match Songs to one Discogs Album by Catalog No
and you can now
  • View this Song at AcousticBrainz
AcousticBrainz is a new site that does audio analysis on songs in the MusicBrainz database to work out attributes such as the Bpm or Danceability of a song. There will be deeper support for this in the next version of Jaikoz. You can help the AcousticBrainz project yourself by submitting your own songs for analysis.

 Many More Improvements

In this release the matching algorithm of Jaikoz has had a Spring clean, it has taken on most of the improvements implemented by SongKong plus added some new ones to give the fastest and most accurate matching so far.

We taken a look at any issues raised in the last year and fixed as many as we possibly could.
