EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN: Vinyl LP Demand Fuels Quest for Perfect Record Player.

Not for me – I remember the poor mastering on some of the earliest CDs, and I know today’s MP3s often have absurd levels of brickwall compression to sound as loud and bassed-out as possible, but I have no desire to go back to the era of scratches, hiss and surface noise.

That said, I wouldn’t mind trying Izotope’s free reissue of their first home recording plugin, Vinyl — which is designed to add plenty of scratches, hiss and surface noise — on my own homebrew MP3s from time to time, for a vintage effect on intros and outros.
