I've been doing some research into the differences between mastering for vinyl and mastering for digital releases.
I've done some Googling and based on the info I've found, I have some questions:
1. Some people claim more dynamic masters are good for vinyl and some other people also claim that heavily compressed (less dynamic) masters are good too as there is less chance of needle bounce and are obviously more constant dynamically; for music that is hyper-compressed, like drum and bass for example, which is the preference?
2. Will a well-mastered tune that is designed for digital release translate to a reasonable vinyl master? Are there any things that a good digital master might have that will cause problem for a vinyl master?
Basically, just trying to figure out some rule-of-thumb and definite do's and don'ts for vinyl masters for someone who's only used to doing digital masters.
