Digital vinyl

If this isn't baked I'd be very surprised.

True music aficionados enjoy vinyl because of its imperfections - the little tump-shhhhhh sound when the needle lands, the slight crackle of nanometre sized dust, the regular ticking of a light 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 analog 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 bioacoustic renegement.

       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 different versions.

       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.
