Not so perfect

Okay, a little regression slipped into the 8.3.0 release but now fixed and deployed in Jaikoz 8.3.1

  • [JAIKOZ-1033] - Artist/title double check for single song metadata matching is incorrect

The Perfect Song Matching Algorithm ?

The quest for the perfect matching algorithm continues, but we are certainly getting closer. With newly released Jaikoz 8.3.0 we have made many improvements to the matching process.

We now do more to groups songs correctly and find possible potential releases, such as searching for releases by track titles if no matches found by release title.

And we are now stricter about accepting a match, we have added some additional checks to ensure it really is a good match.

So the match rate is now higher, and at the same time incorrect matches are kept to a minimum.

  • [JAIKOZ-773] - Allowing Acoustid matches when metadata exists but is bad
  • [JAIKOZ-1005] - If artist name contains feat and get no matches strip out and try again
  • [JAIKOZ-1007] - When single song matching against Acoustid ensure we are selecting the correct song
  • [JAIKOZ-1013] - Dots not removed from filepath when after path separator
  • [JAIKOZ-1014] - When disc has more than two discs may not match because can match songs to wrong disc
  • [JAIKOZ-1018] - Ignore join phrased when matching artists
  • [JAIKOZ-1020] - Consider artist name when doing track scoring
  • [JAIKOZ-1022] - Always only use recording with most sources when single song matching
  • [JAIKOZ-1024] - Extend Acoustid title check to an artist check
  • [JAIKOZ-1026] - Additional processing when songs organized one folder per artist
  • [JAIKOZ-1027] - Search by metadata should search by artist and tracks if no match on release

Better song identification with Jaikoz 8.2.5

In this release we have spent some time working out why some songs by Jaikoz do not get matched even though they exist in the Albunack database and we found a few bugs and improvements we could make.

  • [JAIKOZ-1003] -         Single song matching only matching by acoustids
  • [JAIKOZ-1004] -         Single song matching by Acoustid should only use recording with most sources
  • [JAIKOZ-1005] -         If artist name contains feat and get no matches strip out and try again
  • [JAIKOZ-1010] -         Unable to create fingerprints on Windows if filepath greater than 260 characters

So now you should get an even better matching rate with Jaikoz, already we believe have the most sophisticated and accurate matching algorithm out there, if you know any different let us know.
