Well I don't know if the way I did my vinyl was pure digital capture.
I ran my Turntable signal into a Yamaha AV reciever phono preamp. Then out from the preamp into a Nakamichi tape deck, then into sound card(aureal 8830)
I used the Nakamichi's input level and recording levels to adjust the
phonos input level (like a miking board)
I know It's not the top of the line stuff, this was like 7 years ago.
Anyways the real important step was the post processing. I used Diamond Cut Audio or DCart 3.2 I think that was the version. It handled up to 48 ktz, inside that program you can de pop it all, equalize it to make up for your cartridges sonic shortcomings, and then apply a virtual tube amplifier filter to juice up the signal.
I dunno I may not have had the best of equipment, but my digital captures sound fine to me.
The newest version of Diamond Cut Audio(7 or
is insane!! Captures all the way up to 198, and has more filters than I can figure out!!! The de-popping filter is wayyyyyyyyy better now. And don't take alot of the
hiss out!!! Although CD's were touted as noise free, if you listen to vinyl
you know alot of prescience lives in the mild hiss. I would record with
Dolby C to get better signal to noise(tape deck) , but I would never
listen to the tapes with the bias and Dolby on. It just made the music sound like crap!!! And those cars with tape decks where it auto sensed the CRo2 and turned the bias on!!! Ahh I hated that!!
So i'd say look into DCART audio... can find it on isohunt (
cough cough) .
