I have had the opportunity to transfer many of Elly's recordings. Many of them are sourced from low-generation cassettes, most of which were generously supplied for me to transfer by Falko. A few were transferred and shared by darkdevoted on DIME.
DM Live has had the opportunity to transfer several of Elly's recordings so far, sourced from mostly first-generation cassettes which were generously provided by Falko for archival.

The full list of Elly's tapes that Falko purchased is below.

Elly Apfel was a prolific German taper of Depeche Mode live concerts in Europe from 1984 through 1993. The vast majority of her recordings are of excellent quality; her earlier recordings from 1984 are only good quality at best.

Elly sold copies of her recordings, and even had some advertisements in some smaller magazines. She taped concerts from the 1990 World Violation Tour as well, but she claimed her recordings were "too good" to share. She encountered trouble with police in 1993 and her entire collection (not just Depeche Mode) was confiscated, so presumably the master tapes have been lost.

The equipment she used before 1987 is unknown. For the 1987-1988 Music For The Masses Tour, she used a Sony WM-D6C cassette recorder with unknown microphones. The equipment used for the 1990 World Violation Tour is unknown. For the 1993 Devotional Tour, she used the Sony "Scoopman" digital microcassette recorder, again with unknown microphones, which rivaled DAT quality.

DM Live has had the opportunity to transfer several of Elly's recordings so far, sourced from mostly first-generation cassettes which were generously provided by Falko for archival. All of Falko's tape copies are first-generation, except for 1986-05-20 Münsterlandhalle, Münster, Germany and 1987-11-18 Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, Paris, France which are second-generation copies. In time, DM Live will transfer all of Falko's tape copies and make them available to stream and download.

The full list of the 40 Elly recordings that Falko purchased is below. For most of the recordings that have not had transfers of Falko's low-generation copies performed yet, existing low-generation cassette transfers done by fallenqueen are available and are marked as such.
