This is a question regarding the source recordings for modern vinyl records.
Most modern music is dynamically compressed to hell and mixed down to 16bit/44KHz finals. This is what is recorded on a CD that you buy at the store. My question is, is this the same mix that is used on a vinyl record?
A vinyl copy of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon printed in 1978 wouldn't have the compression of a CD printed today. But, if I were to, say, get a vinyl copy of Radiohead's OK Computer would I be getting the same mix that is used on the CD?
What I'm asking is, basically, is the final production recording of a modern album different on vinyl record compared to a CD?
