Jaikoz 9 Released 1st November 2016

Pleased to announce a new major version of Jaikoz, this release contains many improvements, fixes and some significant infrastructure work.

Mood, BPM and Key Tagging

Jaikoz Pro users can now make use of AcousticBrainz - analysis has been done on millions of songs that are in the MusicBrainz database, when Jaikoz matches a song to MusicBrainz that has been acoustically analysed it can be update with the AcousticBrainz metadata, and this is all easily visible in the Mood tab of the Detail panel

DSF Support

DSD is a technology first used with Super Audio Cd's (SACD), it uses pulse-density modulation encoding a diffierence approach to other lossles formats like WAV and AIFF. The signal is stored as delta-sigma modulated digital audio; a sequence of single-bit values at a sampling rate of 2.8224 MHz (64 times the CD Audio sampling rate of 44.1 kHz, but only at 132768 of its 16-bit resolution). DSF is a way of storing this format in files with metadata and is gaining in popularity on hi end audio systems.

Jaikoz fully supports DSF, including acoustic fingerprinting and all metadata fields.


New Never Modify/Modify If Empty Options

Previously most fields had their own option that allowed you to configure Jaikoz to always modify, modify if empty or never modify the field, and the option was repeated for MusicBrainz match and Discogs match. But it was very cumbersome if you suddenly wanted to change the option for a number of fields. We have now replaced by a list of fields that you can easily modify for each option.



Jaikoz now properly supports editing of the Performer and Involved Person fields, these fields allow you to add additional people involved in the song whatever their role, be it musician or art direction

Classical Tagging

Jaikoz now supports many new fields including many new Classical fields, these Classical fields are all visible on the Detail tab. Auto population of the new Classical fields can currently be done with SongKong  but will be added to a future release of Jaikoz.
