i’m surprised they only sorted through 700 tapes.
i thought they started recording every show professionally since ’94/’95, so i was expecting the number of tapes, including demos etc., to be a bit higher.
but maybe i didn’t estimate the number of smashing pumpkins shows from ’95 until 2000 correctly, and 700 is indeed the number of tapes containing all the live recordings (including plenty of pre-mcis shows) plus whatever else is in the archives.[/quote:3pvty5zo]

tapes right?
from 1996 (MCIS tour) all was recorded ADAT.

so, this must be pre-MCIS and i guess some of the SD-tour was even ADAT.

i know TSP used tapes for studio demos and all. and for really early live recordings.
