Now that all source details are up and running, i thought i'd go through how they work.

heres a example of a show that was alot of sources:

DATE         TYPE   (ORIGIN # + SOURCE #)  VENUE

95-02-24    SBD                1a                              Live Aus Dem Sudbahnhof
95-02-24    AUD                2a                              Live Aus Dem Sudbahnhof
95-02-24    PRO                3a                              Live Aus Dem Sudbahnhof
95-02-24    PRO                3b                              Live Aus Dem Sudbahnhof
95-02-24    PRO                3c                               Live Aus Dem Sudbahnhof
95-02-24    PRO                3d                              Live Aus Dem Sudbahnhof

the ORIGIN changes every time a new TYPE is found. There are 4 TYPES:
SBD => Soundboard recording (audio)
AUD => Audience recording (audio)
PRO => Pro shot (video, usually from tv)
CAM => Audience shot (video)

so, to fully explain the sources above:
95-02-24 SBD 1a -- Soundboard audio recording (from tv broadcast). New recording, so origin # and source # is 1a.
95-02-24 AUD 2a -- Audience audio recording. as its different origin to 1a, it needs a new number of 2a.
95-02-24 PRO 3a -- Pro shot video (from tv broadcast). again, a different origin to the previous ones, so becomes 3a.
95-02-24 PRO 3b -- Pro shot video (from tv broadcast). same origin as 3a, but different source, so becomes 3b.
95-02-24 PRO 3c -- Pro shot video (from tv broadcast). same origin as 3a and 3b, but different source, so becomes 3c.
95-02-24 PRO 3d -- Pro shot video (from tv broadcast). same origin as 3a,3b and 3c, but different source, so becomes 3d.

you'll notice 1a and all the 3 sources are probably from the same ORIGIN, but because the are different TYPES, they are numbered differently.

so how do you tell the different types?
SBD - usually very clean recordings. very little audience noise or venue acoustics evident.
AUD - listen for audience/venue noise, and venue acoustics.
PRO - usually fairly obvious - clean video and audio, cut well, and not shakily shot.
CAM - often shot from only one point in the audience. sometimes shakey, and audio not so great...
