I can't share these on DIME (my torrent was banned), so off to the bootleg forums this goes. Don't be an idiot and try to upload these to DIME.

1990 World Violation Tour Backing Tapes

Lineage: unknown -> ... -> cassette (Basf Chrome Maxima II 100) -> Onkyo TA-2055 tape deck (heads cleaned before transferring; high position, no noise reduction setting, no Accubias setting, output level approx. 75%) -> RCA -> ASUS Xonar DX -> Adobe Audition CS6 (32-bit / 192 khz) -> normalized to -7.9dB, any DC offset removed; noise reduction (65% 8dB); equalization (to lessen heavy bass) -> FLAC level 8 (24/192) -> sped up 4% using Audacity 2.0.2 -> WAV (24/4Cool -> tracks split via cuesheet to FLAC level 8 (24/4Cool
Cassette tape photos included

Backing tapes from the 1990 World Violation tour... what else is there to say? There hasn't been a properly transferred, lossless version of this circulating yet as far as I can tell.

My cassette copy is from an unknown generation and it clearly showed from the hiss which I was able to reduce by a fair amount (if the hiss were not so loud I would have left it be). This tape also played slow, which I was able to correct. It is a little muffled in general, lacking somewhat in high end frequencies, and it was very bass heavy which I reduced with some light equalization. Overall, it sounds quite a bit better than the crappy MP3 versions floating around. It's by no means the best possible version available, but it's something, finally!

"Shake The Disease" is missing the first few seconds, and there are a couple small cuts later in the track.
"Waiting For The Night" seems to be missing the first couple seconds too.
For some reason, "Behind The Wheel" and "Route 66" had significantly more background noise than the rest of the tracks. Despite noise reduction, they are still more noisy than the rest of the tracks.

Hysterika, a Greek DM fan club, gave out these backing tapes on a double CD set in a DVD case to those who attended their annual party on April 20th, 2011. I do not have a copy of that audio, nor do I know anybody who does. It's quite possible that version sounds better than this copy. If somebody has a copy of it or can obtain one, please upload it!

As for other tours' backing tapes:

1987 Music For The Masses tour backing tapes are rumored to have been sold on eBay by a New Zealand seller at some point, but I haven't heard any version of those.
Some 1993 Devotional tour backing tapes (or are they monitor feeds?) exist on a Mute in-house VHS of tour projections and outtakes from the 2004 Devotional DVD project, but I don't have those currently either.

Many thanks to stefler for generously shipping me this cassette from Germany.

you can't get part 4 cause the link has expired, sendspace links expire after 7 days... although, i found this page where you can download them one by one, by clicking on "lyrics"; decent quality (192 kbps) http://www.melodycenta.com/Depeche-Mode/Violator-Tour-Backing-Tapes-music/mp32102375/
