I think I've mentioned this before, but I really don't believe there's anything that can only be "captured" on LP. Or perhaps nothing that can't be translated to another medium (ie, CD). That is to say, while an LP *may* have "fair dust", that shouldn't go away when recorded to CD.
Recently I've been working on remastering a CD to sound like the original LP (which sounds really good). I've gotten pretty close, but there's still something about the LP that makes it "sparkle". Now, perhaps it's just an EQ difference, and I haven't quite figured out what that is yet.
Speaking of which...does anyone know a good way to match EQ from one version to another. Is there some type of spectral analysis tool that would come in handy for this?
