We are pleased to announce the release of SongKong 7.4 Dawnrazor. 



This release contains a number of fixes mainly related to file renaming and song only matching

Jaikoz 11 Cranes released May 20th 2021

We are pleased to announce a major Jaikoz release

Previously all preferences were stored in settings,jai, this was an encrypted Xml file and it was a bad idea. As a developer had to modify the Xml schema every time I needed to add a new preference which was cumbersome. For customers because it was a large Xml file and it was encrypted, this was the main reason for slow Jaikoz start up times, and if the file became corrupted it would just have to be deleted losing all modifications you had made to preferences.

That has all gone now, and most preferences are now stored in settings.properties. but we have columns.properties, id3columns.properties, audiocolumns.properties, manualcolumns.properties for storing the columns displayed in the main edit window.

Jaikoz now comes with predefined filename masks, and these can be modified and new ones added just like in SongKong. All renames masks are stored in renamemask.properties, and this is exactly the same as the one provided for SongKong.

There are substantial changes to renaming files from metadata in this release, but if you also have SongKong then you’ll see we have basically introduced the SongKong way of file renaming to Jaikoz.

Roon 1 is a high-end music player that is a popular alternative to a uPnP Server (such as Asset or MinimServer). It comes with tools to automatically identify your music files, and offers a nice browsing experience making use of data from MusicBrainz and AllMusic.

But its automatic identification only goes so far, so many Roon customers have made use of SongKong to improve the results they get with Roon, now are adding support for Roon to Jaikoz as well !


Jaikoz 11 supports a number of new fields

These can be autopopulated from a match:

ENGINEER_SORT (Engineer Sort Name)
PRODUCER_SORT (Producer Sort Name)
MIXER_SORT (Mixer Sort Name)
DJMIXER_SORT (DJ Mixer Sort Name)
SECTION (Multi level Work)
ALBUM_VERSION (MusicBrainz Release Disambugation Comment)
IS_LIVE (MusicBrainz Live secondary type)
ALBUM_YEAR (Release date of album)
ORIGINAL_ALBUM_YEAR (Release date of earliest version of album the song was matched to)
IS_HD (If Audio is 24bit or greater or dsf format)
IS_GREATEST_HITS (If single artist compilation)

These can currently only be manually modified:
