Lou is absolutely right - real time is the only sensible thing to do, for any and all media.

Why would one do that? You lose the accurate RIAA (or other) curve, and probably damage both the groove and the stylus, plus losing the high frequencies... Don't do it! And with the ratio of 2.34 (...) would you get the pitch just right digitally?

I get paid by the hour, so I'd do it realtime. I transfer everything I do at realtime...
