If this isn't baked I'd be very surprised.
True music aficionados enjoy vinyl because of its
the little tump-shhhhhh sound when the needle lands, the
crackle of nanometre sized dust, the regular ticking of a
scratch, the barely-perceptible wow caused by an
unbalanced coffee stain on one edge of the turntable... You
can't (apparently) beat it.
Music producers should therefore release special-edition
downloads (or CDs, if anyone still buys then) with all the
imperfections added digitally. Even better, multiple
versions can be released, replicating the sound yielded by a
1950s Dansette, a cheap '80s music centre, and a top-of-the-
mornin' 2019 Bose-and-Orfer magnetically levitated
turntable with gravity-wave compensation and laser-ranged
Not dissimilar to this

||Better just to have a software filter?
||Yes, but where's the repeat business in that? Much better to
have a music buff say they've got Dark Side of the Moon in five
||Audio buff: To be honest, I prefer the crackles on the Dark Side Of
The Moon picture disc MP3...
||The software filter could be specific to the edition, and come as a separate download file.
