They have a "blank" LP with time code or something on it that is fed
into the CD player. You "wicka-wicka-wicka" just like normal, but the
LP is controlling the CD player. For a while, I thought about using
just such a setup to give my CDs more "analog" like sound. Find one of
the "blank" control LPs that's pressed way off center to give that
familiar seasick affect. Then, use an outboard processor to add tube
"warmth" and tape saturation affects. EQ it with some extra midbass and
use a tube buffered DAC. All I'd have to do is discretely mix in some
crackle and pop, which is available as a loop I think.
