Automated Tagging Heaven
This afternoon I stumbled across possibly one of the most useful pieces of software ever! A mate’s recent blog post referred to “Jaikoz” – an audio tag editor with a difference. In these days of iPods, Cover Flow and Media centers its more important than ever to have your music all properly tagged and complete with album artwork, But it’s a hateful task, even with normal tagging software to help. But the Jaikoz ace is the way it does it automatically, identifying music even without any existing tags at all.
“Jaikoz uses MusicBrainz, an online database of over 6 million songs. Many of these songs also have an Acoustic Id provided by MusicIP, allowing a song to be identified by the actual music, so it can do a match even if you have no metadata! These feature means that Jaikoz gives you the flexibility to lookup your songs by both the acoustic id and the metadata making Jaikoz a very accurate tool. 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 using a convenient spreadsheet view, with many autoformatting features.”
Jaikoz supports tagging of MP3, Mp4, M4a, M4p, Flac and OggVorbis files. Best of all Jaikoz is available for Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X and Linux and there’s a free trial available (£15 to buy)…
