FWV015: Vanity / Apollonia
Here we have Vanity’s two post-Prince full-length LP’s along with some 12″ cuts from various singles. Vanity’s track ‘Undress’ was produced by Jesse Johnson. Also here is Apollonia’s full-length solo LP and cuts from three 12″ singles that were released from the album.
How I do it: Technics SL-1200MK2 turntable w/Audio Technica AT440MLa phono cartridge via analog connection to a Yamaha RX-Z1 A/V Receiver which goes analog to a Sony PCM-R300 DAT deck. The DAT deck does the analog to digital conversion and the audio signal is then sent digitally through a Turtle Beach Catalina sound card and recorded via Cool Edit Pro as a wav file on my computer. The wav file is then processed with ClickRepair, trimmed/edited in Cool Edit Pro and converted to FLAC. All FLAC files have been verified with Trader’s Little Helper. I guess the simplified lineage would be: Vinyl>WAV>FLAC
