I think the only way to get the same results as from the film will be to take three shots with narrow band filters that pass green, red and IR, and combine them in post.

That of course limits you to still subjects and a tripod and the cable release.

Thanks for all the answers so far. It may be impossible to get the exact look of Aerochrome.

And yet, in the link that I gave you, the Hoya 49mm X1 is said not to require significant post-processing adjustments ...

It just bothers me that you get to a pretty good result via very strange detours. Why does the Foveon Classic Blue mode and the Fringe Correction lead to these results? SPP is like a black box. I just don't understand it. And if I did understand it, then maybe it would be easier to get the "exact" Aerochrome look, that is, besides red/pink vegetation and dark blue skies, the details like the color changes (red->yellow/green)....

I would recommend a three-channel color mixer. It's action is the same as a 3x3 color matrix as used internally by the SD1 and by SPP. Well worth a try.
