My LP recordings are converted from raw WAV into FLAC files edited to normalize loudness and insert basic metadata. With my smart phone (which doubles as remote control for the bridge/renderer) I can quickly search up the track listing for almost any LP I own if I really want to see information about a specific song. I may eventually spend the time to split out individual tracks but for now I'm prioritizing getting my LPs recorded and stored on the NAS with attributes including artist, album, side1/side2/etc., and cover art.
too much effort for gain in that respect. And I have only a few digitized albums.
As you mentioned you can always go back and split out the tracks later.
I enjoyed the experience of digitizing a couple dozen LPs and then I decided it was too tedious for me. But in my case, I had many of those albums already available on CD which as you know are much easier to RIP.
Have fun! Until it's no fun anymore. Who knows, you might have the temperament for this sort of thing. I didn't last very long before frustration got the better of me ;-)
I probably have the temperament. Years ago, when I owned paired Sony 300-CD Jukeboxes, I recorded about 400 CDs using a Pioneer PDR-555RW CDR recorder before I gave up. I had purchased a new turntable, cartridge, and phono stage and the sound was so much improved that I realized I should re-record all those LPs with the new setup. But the recording process with the CDR recorder was tedious so I didn't.
Many years later I'm now playing LPs with an even better sounding vinyl setup, incorporating a well-designed de-clicker, and recorded at high resolution so the results are quite good and worth my time and trouble.
