I do this quite a bit...

I use ecasound to capture the entire LP to a single WAV file, then
Audacity or mhWaveEdit to edit out any really nasty clicks, normalise,
top-and-tail and split into tracks. I capture 24-bit samples and use a
fairly low input level, so I've got plenty of headroom. I haven't yet
found a denoise filter I like the sound of, but unless you're
capturing a *really* grotty LP the surface noise is generally
unobjectionable anyway.
