Sounds Like Vinyl is a website devoted to the art and craft of re-recording vinyl records in the digital format. Let’s face facts — you love records, or you wouldn’t be here. However wonderful your collection might be, the medium does not lend itself to portability. There is also a charm and warmth to the sound of vinyl records, like the crackle of a fireplace, or the pop of an old two-stroke motorcycle. Hearing that same classic vinyl sound coming our of your MP3 player, iTunes library or cloud mix is just fun.
I started recording vinyl more than ten years ago. In the beginning, I had to figure out the basics on my own. I have learned a lot about the craft and I hope to share with you some useful ideas about the process. You’ll find some tips and tricks here to make the best possible recordings. Feel free to shoot me a general question and maybe I can help. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy !
